Legality

Updated: June 1, 2020 9:57

Casinoslots is operating in an innovative space where discussions of appropriate legal regulations are ongoing. New Zealand state law governs both Casinoslots and it's advertisers (online casinos). Casinoslots operates in compliance with NZ law, including The Gambling Act 2003, which specifically exempts overseas casinos websites (our advertisers) from its regulation.

Likewise, the Gambling Act 2003 prohibits remote interactive gambling in Section 9 (2)(b). The prohibition is on remote interactive gambling in New Zealand and therefore it does not prohibit gambling conducted overseas. It is not illegal for someone in New Zealand to participate in gambling over the Internet if that website is overseas for example. This position is maintained by Fact Sheet #27 (Gambling Act 2003) by dia.govt.nz.

State law regarding online gaming is is currently dynamic while some officials and NGOs continue to evaluate the legality of it and potential regulation of the industry. Casinoslots monitors new developments and acts quickly to ensure it is in compliance with the laws in any state where it operates. As any changes in the law take place or regulations are implemented, Casinoslots will take steps to ensure its continued compliance, and changes to this site may take place to reflect any such new laws or regulations.
