While it is illegal to advertise online casinos in New Zealand, the nearly 5 million residents of this beautiful Southwestern Pacific nation can still gamble over the Web with Internet sites based both within New Zealand and outside its jurisdiction.

The Mobile Pokies Guide is just one of many research tools across the Net for Kiwi players, including the latest bonus offerings and new game developments.

Trying to navigate the massively crowded online pokies site market can be incredibly daunting to players who are unfamiliar with them, that review site notes.

New Zealand’s online gambling explosion in recent years has come as a direct result of the mobile compatibility of such online games along with an influx of well publicized poker tournaments.

This increase in Web offerings has not exactly been embraced by everyone, especially the brick and mortar establishments

The number of pokie venues has decreased by 13 over 5 years, according to an Otago Times report.
As a third of pokie revenue is retained by the community, grant levels are lowered by decreased revenue, the report suggests.

Introduced in 1987, slot machines, also known as "pokies", are operated by charitable foundations and mostly found in establishments such as hotels and bars.  

The ability to play online also offers a sense of security as a 2010 study linked the prevalence of slot machines in New Zealand with high crime levels.

It is illegal for anyone to operate remote interactive gambling from within New Zealand without the proper licensing.  Likewise, only sporting events provided by the state-run gambling monopoly TAB and the New Zealand Lotteries Commission can operate online gambling ventures from within the country.
