The rise of live gaming in Zimbabwe

In Zimbabwe, there are many ways for residents to find entertainment or relax, with Indosakusa the Morning Star being a prime example of local entertainment on offer. But a new trend has swept across the nation, with a huge number of computers, mobiles, and tablets logging in to experience the new form of live gaming.

While slot games remain eternally popular, it's the live casino games which have shot up in popularity in Zimbabwe. It's quite common for people to argue that the distinguishing difference between online casinos and brick-and-mortar casinos is the lack of real-life experience and thrills of playing in real time with real people. Live casino games make that argument obsolete by streaming a live dealer or croupier and the game from a studio to the user's computer or device while they play along in real time.

So, by looking at the offering of the multi-award-winning live casino game provider Playtech, we'll see which games have become the most popular, and may even surpass the fame of the slot games.

To get a foot in the door of live casino games, Playtech started by setting up the classic games in their studios to be streamed to all of their operators, and in turn, their players. These classic titles have remained very popular among live casino fans in Zimbabwe, with casino hold'em, roulette, unlimited blackjack and baccarat still holding a large audience.

With the rise in fame of live casino games, however, and with more competition popping up around the internet, Playtech had to enhance their offering with variations of their classic games. Playtech casinos now offer new ways to play which have proven to be just as appealing to online gamers as the more traditional versions.

To stay competitive, Playtech created live casino games which feature new rules and, in some cases, created brand new games altogether. Now, when fans go to play live casino games at Playtech live casinos, they have the choice of even more titles that can't be found anywhere else.

Hi-Lo, Prestige Roulette, Mini-Baccarat, and Soiree Blackjack are among the most played non-classic titles, with Playtech's 'Grand' range also drawing in the fans. But the most inventive titles are the ones that get the most players coming back for more.

One such title is Spin a Win. The concept is simple: you bet on colours of varying values, the live presenter spins the wheel and if the needle lands your colour, you win. Playtech's most famous game, however, draws from their biggest franchise.

Age of the Gods is the provider's multi-million progressive jackpot game series featuring Greek gods, so to bring their creation to live casino players, they created Age of the Gods Roulette. The live roulette and slot game features the classic casino game but with a bonus position that triggers the slot mini-game, which guarantees a win of up to 100 times your bet.

People all over Zimbabwe have turned to their mobile devices and computers to get a dose of live casino action from their homes, with the Playtech games emerging as the most popular in the nation.
