The act of living in Zimbabwe is something of a risk at the moment, so you may imagine that there would be very little desire for visiting Zimbabwe's gambling halls. In fact, it appears to be functioning the other way, with the desperate economic circumstances leading to a larger eagerness to gamble, to attempt to find a quick win, a way from the situation.

For many of the people living on the meager local money, there are two established forms of gaming, the national lottery and Zimbet. Just as with most everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lotto where the probabilities of hitting are unbelievably small, but then the jackpots are also unbelievably high. It's been said by financial experts who look at the situation that the majority do not purchase a card with the rational expectation of profiting. Zimbet is centered on either the national or the English soccer leagues and involves determining the outcomes of future games.

Zimbabwe's gambling dens, on the other shoe, look after the extremely rich of the nation and tourists. Up until recently, there was a extremely substantial tourist business, built on nature trips and trips to Victoria Falls. The market woes and associated conflict have carved into this trade.

Amongst Zimbabwe's gambling dens, there are two in the capital, Harare, the Carribea Bay Resort and Casino, which has 5 gaming tables and slot machines, and the Plumtree gambling den, which has only slots. The Zambesi Valley Hotel and Entertainment Center in Kariba also has only slot machines. Mutare has the Monclair Hotel and Casino and the Leopard Rock Hotel and Casino, the pair of which contain gaming tables, one armed bandits and video machines, and Victoria Falls houses the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, the two of which offer slot machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe's gambling halls and the previously mentioned lottery and Zimbet (which is quite like a parimutuel betting system), there are also 2 horse racing tracks in the state: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the second city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Seeing as that the economy has diminished by more than 40% in the past few years and with the associated poverty and bloodshed that has arisen, it is not understood how healthy the tourist business which funds Zimbabwe's gambling dens will do in the in the years to come. How many of them will carry on till conditions get better is basically unknown.
