The New Zealand Gambling Guide Law is a comprehensive guide to the law and policy surrounding class 4 gambling.  The guide is continuously updated having regard to recent legislation and regulation changes, Gambling Commission decisions, Department of Internal Affairs’ policy documents and comments made by the Department of Internal Affairs in audit reports and sanction letters (such documents are obtained regularly under the Official Information Act).

The guide is a practical aid and essential tool for all societies and clubs which hold a class 4 operator's licence.

The guide is written by Jarrod True and peer reviewed by Alastair Sherriff.  Together Jarrod and Alastair have over 50 years experience in advising clients in relation to class 4 gambling matters.
