(Zimbabwe News Bureau) The days of waiting is nearing to an end, as we approach the biggest day of Zimbabwe's National Election Day. Zimbabwean aren't the only people getting ready for the coming election, eagerly excited at the other end of the world are gamblers, who, a long time ago made their fortune in betting the Zimbabwe's National Election.

Mynard Zozol, a gambling addict who at one time went broke in Las Vegas and lost almost all of his fortune at playing "Paper, Rock, and Scissor." Hopeless, Zozol risked his last money in betting the Zimbabwe's National Election where at that time Robert Mugabe was one of the candidates running for the president. Zozol said, "I heard it first from my friends, at first I didn't believe them, I was reluctant to bet the election, later on I loaned my house and car after I have read the reputation of Robert Mugabe, he was just awesome at cheating, so I thought he would do it again at national level." Zozol got it right, one month after the election the result finally came in with Mugabe leading the lists with a huge gap of votes with that of his fellow candidates. Zozol got back all his lost fortune and came back to him five folds.

Today, any gamblers from anywhere he may be in the world could readily bet the election hassle free, with just a Paypal account and an internet connection, you are ready to go. M*gd*tc*m.com a discrete online site offers several schemes for betting, there's the "vote difference" betting and the "winner takes all" options. In "vote difference" betting the gambler wins the amount of money he bet multiplied by the difference of vote of the leading candidate. For example I bet $10 for Mugabe, and if he wins the election with a vote difference of 146,000 with that of Tschangirai, the calculation would be $10 X 146,000 = $1,460,000, damn that's a lot of money!

In the "winner takes all" scheme, two bettors of the same bet but of opposite contenders are matched, the one who win will collect the money of the other person. For example if I bet for Mugabe at $500, and if he eventually wins the election, therefore I am the winner and I will collect the $500 from the other person.

A reported rumor leaked around today that Mugabe might do it again.
