It was a milestone of sorts. Kigali city got its very first Casino as at the close of the year. Located on the second floor of the new Top Tower Hotel in Kacyiru, any visitor to the casino will be greeted by a well stocked bar, manned by good looking staff.
On Monday November, 24, 2008 Kigali was treated to the official launch of the Casino where culture and Sports Minister Joseph Habineza was the chief guest.
The occasion was also graced by the presence of the Private Sector Federation (PSF) chairman Robert Bayigamba. Entrance into the Casino is free, but be warned that it is class that rules.
Every hectic day ought to be given a calm and lovely ending, and Casino Kigali is the place to be. There is great music to relax your mind.
During the launch the legendary Mustari, Popo, and Jean Marie treated those who attended to their great African musical performances till the wee hours of the morning.
Any way, never mind about the ‘high’ temperatures at Casino Kigali, the drinks here can take you through a desert; at least for a night. There are many types of drinks which keep the revelers on their feet.
The quality of service at the casino is not your ‘average’ Kigali experience. The service is offered at ‘breakneck speed’ by staff under the strict supervision of the hotel owners. There is a possibility of the managers themselves attending to you if service is delayed.
The drinks, music and good staff aside , Casino Kigali just like any other, is about betting, chips, cards, gaming machines and loosing or making money if you are lucky.
But it is well known that once you walk into a Casino and bet US$5 per round for a whole night, you will hardly walk out with US$500.
This provides the ‘house’ with a long-term unpredictable advantage over the clients. I am not trying to discourage any of you guys from playing the game; actually there are people who have walked out of Casinos as instant millionaires.
However, eliminating this ‘house’ advantage requires a lot of skill especially with the so called ‘random’ games.Casino Kigali is operated by Solna Leisure Holdings and they offer a variety of games for patrons to try their luck.
