The act of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the current time, so you might think that there would be little desire for supporting Zimbabwe’s gambling dens. In fact, it appears to be operating the opposite way, with the awful market circumstances leading to a greater ambition to wager, to try and locate a fast win, a way out of the problems.

For most of the people surviving on the meager local earnings, there are 2 common styles of gaming, the state lotto and Zimbet. As with practically everywhere else on the planet, there is a state lottery where the probabilities of profiting are extremely low, but then the winnings are also unbelievably large. It’s been said by economists who study the idea that the lion’s share don’t buy a ticket with the rational assumption of profiting. Zimbet is founded on one of the national or the United Kingston soccer leagues and involves determining the results of future matches.

Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, on the other shoe, cater to the extremely rich of the country and sightseers. Until not long ago, there was a very big vacationing industry, centered on safaris and trips to Victoria Falls. The economic anxiety and associated bloodshed have cut into this market.

Amongst Zimbabwe’s gambling dens, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has five gaming tables and one armed bandits, and the Plumtree gambling hall, which has only slot machine games. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slots. Mutare contains the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, both of which contain gaming tables, slots and video poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, each of which has slot machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe’s gambling dens and the aforementioned talked about lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a parimutuel betting system), there is a total of two horse racing tracks in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the economy has shrunk by more than 40% in recent years and with the connected deprivation and violence that has arisen, it is not well-known how well the vacationing industry which is the backbone of Zimbabwe’s gambling halls will do in the near future. How many of them will survive till conditions improve is simply not known.
