Spiritual gambler: Bulawayo Prophet Banned From Casino for Winning Too Much

A Bulawayo prophet has stated that he received a winning formula from God that helped him win $30,000 at a local casino, causing a stir in both the Christian community and the gambling world.


Prophet Archbishop Emmanuel Mutumwa, the leader of the Johanne Masowe eChishanu Apostolic Sect, revealed this surprising information following his record-breaking win at the casino.

After his significant victory, which he claims is the largest jackpot ever recorded at the casino, his festivities were short-lived as casinos in Bulawayo have now prohibited him from playing to prevent excessive payouts to the frequent winner.

“This is the biggest win ever recorded at the casino. I broke the previous record by almost double, and it was the biggest jackpot won on the site this year. My celebrations were cut short, however, because I have been banned by other casinos for winning too much. They claim that since I am a prophet, I am receiving visions from God about the winning numbers. They fear they will go bankrupt because I will win too often” Prophet Mutumwa said.

The archbishop remained unperturbed as he justified his earnings, stating that he utilized the funds to cover educational expenses for certain individuals within his congregation and to offer initial capital for their business ventures. However, this marked the initiation of his contentious position on the issue.


Mutumwa proceeded to advocate for the act of gambling, a decision that is expected to provoke disapproval from the very Christian community to which he claims allegiance.

“God works in mysterious ways,” he declared. “This win wasn’t about luck, but a test of faith. I prayed for guidance, and the Lord provided the numbers through a vision. Isn’t it a blessing to use these winnings to uplift my congregation? Gambling, when done responsibly, can be a source of good fortune that can be channelled towards helping others. Many people also come to me for spiritual guidance on winning lottery games, at casinos, or when placing bets. Interestingly, many of them have reported winning much more frequently since seeking my guidance,” he explained.

A manager at a local casino, speaking anonymously, confirmed that betting establishments typically restrict or close accounts of those who win consistently. This policy aims to protect the financial stability of the casinos.
