Venezuelan crisis spawns boom in gambling
"The Whale", "The Dog" or "The Zebra"? Players line up beside a small kiosk in a poor neighborhood to choose animals in a lottery game that has become a craze in Venezuela, as it seems more and more Venezuelans turn to gambling in their desperation to make ends meet amid the country's unprecedented economic crisis.

Caracas, Venezuela
Competitors take part in a horserace, with a slum or "barrio" in the background at La Rinconada Hippodrome, Caracas, Venezuela. "The Whale", "The Dog" or "The Zebra"? Players line up beside a small kiosk in a poor neighbourhood to choose animals in a lottery game that has become a craze in Venezuela even as the oil-rich country suffers a fourth year of brutal recession.
