The current New Zealand legislation does not allow live casinos to be present within the country. The gambling regulations forbid any domestic online portals to offer gambling services. However, there is no written legislation prohibiting players who are of legal age to access foreign live casinos.
Offshore live casinos are not permitted to promote themselves in the territory of New Zealand, and they face strict penalties if they do so, but they cannot be stopped from attracting New Zealand players from outside the country.
This has completely changed the gambling landscape in the country, as online live gambling has proved to be just as popular as land-based gambling in the country, and players are more than eager to place wagers in their favourite foreign live casinos.
Players are also fully allowed to withdraw money from offshore live casinos, and the most popular and the best live casinos have implemented the New Zealand dollar as a form of currency. The only problem the authorities have are live casinos that would try to operate from within the country.
This situation has been more than welcome for offshore live casinos, as they look to attract as many New Zealand players as possible, and they are successful with that. Players from New Zealand love to gamble online, and as the government does not charge them with any criminal offences, they are free to place wagers at any foreign live casino that accepts players from the country.
