New Zealand Online Casinos
If you live in New Zealand, it is not illegal to place a real cash wager in an online casino which operates from an offshore location and the great news for Kiwis is that there are now hundreds of perfectly secure online casinos available for you to visit. These impressive gambling portals are powered by some of the industry’s most advanced online casino software providers.
The two main operators which do offer real cash gaming services to New Zealanders include the New Zealand Lotteries Commission and TAB (the Totalizator Agency Board), but there are literally just a handful of lottery sites and sportsbetting sites which are monitored and regulated by these authorities. The best New Zealand online casinos are therefore mainly licensed in other major jurisdictions around the world and they are controlled by foreign operators.
The Gambling Act 2003 made it near impossible for New Zealanders to place a real cash wager at gambling portal which is owned by a New Zealand operator and this is why Kiwi players are generally signed up to casinos which are licensed either in Gibraltar (by the Government of Gibraltar), in Malta (by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority) or in the United Kingdom (by the UK Gambling Commission).
The other most trusted online casinos for New Zealanders tend to be licensed either in Curaçao (by the Curaçao Internet Gaming Association / CIGA), in Antigua and Barbuda (by the Directorate of Offshore Gaming), in the Isle of Man (by The Gambling Supervision Commission), in Alderney (by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission) or in Kahnawake (by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission).
New Zealand players now have access to some of the best online casino games in the world and most of today’s NZ online casinos are powered by the likes of Microgaming, Playtech and Net Entertainment (NetEnt). You can also now find a growing number of fully licensed NZ online casinos which are powered by Realtime Gaming (RTG), WMS Gaming, Aristocrat Online, WMS Gaming and IGT Interactive software.
Today’s best New Zealand online casinos can be accessed either instantly in your browser or from within a perfectly secure download client. This software is free to download and the casinos are all free to sign up to. You will also find that today’s best NZ online casinos will accept NZ dollars and they will accept a wide range of effective NZ online payment options. The other good news is that the support at these sites is generally available 24 hours per day via live chat, email and telephone. This telephone number that New Zealand players can call is generally a local toll-free number.
