New Zealand Regulations Begin Sunday

29 September 2005

NEW ZEALAND – As reported by the New Zealand Stuff: "New regulations to prevent and minimise the harm caused by gambling, including pop up messages on gaming machines showing how much money has been won or lost, will come into effect on Saturday.

"All gambling operators with gaming machines in pubs, clubs, casinos and other venues will be required to adhere to the new rules.

"…From October 1, all new gaming machines must:

" - at a gambler's choice, display information about the games on that machine and about the gambler's session of play; and

"- automatically interrupt play, at intervals of no more than 30 minutes, and provide information including how long that session of gambling has been and how much money has been won or lost, and must ask if the gambler wishes to continue.

"…There must always be staff who have had problem gambling awareness training at the venue when gambling is available, equipping them to approach people who seem to have gambling problems and offer assistance and information."
