The prospect of living in Zimbabwe is something of a gamble at the moment, so you might think that there would be little desire for patronizing Zimbabwe's casinos. In fact, it seems to be functioning the other way around, with the awful economic conditions creating a bigger ambition to wager, to try and locate a quick win, a way out of the crisis.

For the majority of the locals surviving on the abysmal local wages, there are 2 dominant types of betting, the national lottery and Zimbet. As with almost everywhere else on the globe, there is a national lotto where the odds of hitting are remarkably low, but then the winnings are also extremely high. It's been said by market analysts who look at the idea that the majority do not buy a card with the rational assumption of hitting. Zimbet is based on one of the national or the British football leagues and involves predicting the results of future games.

Zimbabwe's gambling halls, on the other shoe, mollycoddle the very rich of the state and vacationers. Up till not long ago, there was a considerably substantial sightseeing business, founded on safaris and visits to Victoria Falls. The market collapse and connected crime have cut into this market.

Among Zimbabwe's gambling halls, 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 den, 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 have gaming tables, slot machines and electronic poker machines, and Victoria Falls has the Elephant Hills Hotel and Casino and the Makasa Sun Hotel and Casino, both of which offer video poker machines and tables.

In addition to Zimbabwe's gambling halls and the above alluded to lottery and Zimbet (which is very like a parimutuel betting system), there is a total of two horse racing tracks in the nation: the Matabeleland Turf Club in Bulawayo (the 2nd city) and the Borrowdale Park in Harare.

Given that the economy has deflated by beyond 40 percent in the past few years and with the associated deprivation and conflict that has arisen, it isn't understood how healthy the sightseeing business which is the backbone of Zimbabwe's casinos will do in the next few years. How many of them will be alive till conditions improve is basically unknown.
