Casino and Non-Casino Gaming

Service Overview
The Department of Internal Affairs casino and non-casino gaming services help keep gambling in New Zealand fair and honest. The Gaming Compliance Office audits and investigates non-casino gaming activities, licenses all non-casino gaming and issues certificates of approval for casino employees. The Casino Inspectorate regulates all casino gaming activities.
