The entire process of living in Zimbabwe is somewhat of a gamble at the current time, so you might think that there might be very little affinity for patronizing Zimbabwe’s gambling halls. Actually, it seems to be operating the opposite way around, with the desperate economic circumstances creating a larger desire to gamble, to try and locate a fast win, a way out of the problems.

For the majority of the citizens living on the abysmal local wages, there are 2 established forms of wagering, the state lotto and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lottery where the probabilities of hitting are surprisingly tiny, but then the prizes are also unbelievably high. It’s been said by financial experts who study the concept that the majority do not purchase a ticket with a real expectation of hitting. Zimbet is built on either the domestic or the United Kingston soccer leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other hand, pamper the very rich of the state and vacationers. Up until a short time ago, there was a exceptionally large sightseeing business, founded on nature trips and visits to Victoria Falls. The economic woes and associated conflict have carved into this trade.

Among Zimbabwe’s gambling halls, there are 2 in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree Casino, which has only slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has just slot machines. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the two of which contain gaming tables, slots and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which has gaming machines and table games.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the above mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is considerably like a pools system), there are a total of 2 horse racing tracks in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd metropolis) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Since the economy has diminished by more than forty percent in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and crime that has come about, it is not understood how well the vacationing industry which is the foundation for Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the in the years to come. How many of the casinos will carry through till things improve is basically not known.
