The history of the gambling business in New Zealand

The gambling business has existed in New Zealand since then, how settlers from Great Britain began to develop the territory. Gambling was a common activity during the colonization period.

Gambling Act 1908 banned the gambling business - only horse racing remained legal. They remained the only legal form until 1951 of the year, when TAB appeared - the state bookmaker.

After which the laws began to soften, and new forms of gambling became available to New Zealanders. Lotteries consistently appeared, slot machines, casino and online casino.

Horse racing

It is the oldest form of gambling in New Zealand. The first races were held in 1835 year. However, horse betting was prohibited in 1920 year. Again they were allowed only in 1961, and that, with great restrictions.

Lottery

The first lotteries appeared in 1933 year. They were relatively small.. Major Golden Kiwi Lottery appeared in 1961 year. Then her in 1987 replaced Lotto.

Slot machines

Slot machines first appeared in New Zealand in 1991 year. Slang name - poker machines or pokey, as in Australia. The government allowed the organization of clubs with slot machines in 1989 year.

In the 90s, operators preferred to install slot machines in and around Wellington, since this is a metropolitan area. Then in 2001 year the government announced, that is going to free the capital from the gambling business. Were closed 7 city ​​casinos, because the authorities were afraid of too strong the development of dependence among the population.

Casino

The first casino was opened in Christchurch in 1994 year. Then casinos were built in cities:

  • Dunedin;
  • Hamilton;
  • Queenstown;
  • Auckland.

Gambling establishments in these cities still function.

Online slot machines

New Zealanders, as a very reckless nation, naturally, could not miss the online casino. Gambling websites and platforms started in 1994 year. Microgaming becomes the first online slots provider in New Zealand

Fruit Fiesta and Cash Splash are some of the first slot machines, which became available to New Zealanders. In the late nineties, New Zealanders got acquainted with slots from Playtech and Cryptologic.

At first, online slots only possessed 1 a winning line and three reels. Then, with the development of computers, developers began to introduce more paylines, wild symbols, scatter, bonuses and bonus games.

History

New Zealand Cabinet approved the creation of Lotto in February 1986, the necessary passage of legislation through Parliament in April that year with a vote of 47-20. New Zealand Lottery Commission was founded in June 1987, and the existing Golden Kiwi lottery arrived under the direction of the Commission. Первый Лотто тянет с главным призом 359 808$, was carried out 1 August 1987.

The range of games has been expanded over time, with Instant New Zealander scratchcards introduced in 1989 (replacing the Golden New Zealander), Lotto's strike 1993, Keno c 1994, Powerball в 2001 and Big Wednesday in 2005. The Victory Wheel was introduced into 2004 as a free "second chance" for Lotto players.

Lotto was previously run in two game shows, "Telebingo" and "Risk". There were also "Extra Draws" on several occasions in 1998.

In April 2013 advertising Lotto, showing dog, stealing a lotto ticket from its owner, because he ditched it for the cat, faced a complaint to the Advertising Standards Committee. It was thrown out.

Immigration through training

There are three ways to immigrate to New Zealand through study:

  • A sought-after specialist comes to language courses
  • A demanded specialist comes to improve his qualifications for a diploma program
  • The student comes to receive a new specialty from scratch

A sought-after specialist comes to language courses

The language course option may suit you, if you have a qualification from the list of long-term demanded, but:

  • your english level is insufficient, to get an IELTS certificate with a score of 6.5, what you need to apply for a Skilled Migrant,
  • you don't have enough points to, to apply for the Skilled Migrant category.

In these cases, a trip to New Zealand for a language course may be a good way to achieve your goal.. During your studies, you can not only improve your English to the desired level, but also find a qualified job. If you have a job offer from a New Zealand employer, then you will receive additional points for the Skilled Migrant category, which, probably, will be sufficient, to apply for residency.

Important note: this method is suitable only for specialists, whose specialty is on the list of in-demand. In this case, your potential employer will not need to prove to the Immigration Service, that he could not find a suitable candidate for his vacancy from among residents and citizens

The presence of a specialty in the list automatically implies, that specialists with such a profession are in short supply.

Currently, there are three lists of in-demand professions: long term (Long Term), Short (Immediate) and a list for the Canterbury region.

If you are interested in the option with a trip to language courses, find information about language programs, offered by our agency, can be here.

A demanded specialist comes to improve his qualifications for a diploma program

If you have a good level of English, but you do not earn points for direct application for residence in the Skilled Migrant category, then the best way in your case would be a trip to New Zealand to improve your qualifications. After training, you will be eligible for an open work visa for a period of 1 to 3 years depending on the level of the program. A work visa will simplify your job search and open the door to obtaining residency.

Depending on the program, admission to professional diploma courses will require an IELTS Academic certificate with a score of 6.0 and higher, or passing an internal school entrance test.

The student comes to receive a new specialty from scratch

If you have no higher education, or if you want to change your specialty, then you can get a new profession from scratch. To do this, you need to unlearn a professional program for 1-2 years, either 3 and more than a year before receiving a bachelor's degree. As with students, raising qualifications, students, learning from scratch, will be eligible for an open work visa after graduation.

To enroll in a diploma course, you will need an IELTS Academic certificate with a score of 5.5 and higher.

About that, how to choose the right specialty and program for immigration to New Zealand, read in our article.

Immigration for refugees

The method of immigration to New Zealand through obtaining refugee status is not popular, since it is extremely difficult to obtain this status, but for citizens of the Russian Federation and CIS countries it is almost unrealistic. A positive response to their petitions is most often received by citizens of countries such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Sri Lanka, etc..

In theory, there are two ways to apply for refugee. The first is to apply for refugee status at the New Zealand Embassy in your home country.. As practice shows, the probability of obtaining refugee status in this case tends to zero. The second - obtaining refugee status already in New Zealand. This is a more real way. However, before, how to apply for a refugee from New Zealand, you need to enter the country, having received a preliminary visa.

New Zealand's annual refugee admission quota is 750 man.

Also in this category there is such a type of visa as Refugee Family Support Resident Visa. She suggests, that New Zealand residents, who entered the country as refugees, can sponsor a residence permit for someone from their family. In a year, this category is issued in total 300 visas.

Read more about Refugee Family Support Resident Visa on the website of the Immigration Service.

If you haven't decided yet, do you want to move specifically to New Zealand, we recommend that you travel to short-term language courses to get to know the country. In this case, you can not only tighten your tongue, but also finally decide on your plans. For more information on English courses in New Zealand, see here.
