This note is not part of the rules, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These rules, which come into force on the date of their notification in the Gazette, amend the Bingo Rules 1996 in 2 ways.
First, they allow the New Zealand Lotteries Commission to conduct a draw for extraordinary prizes in a game of bingo. Particular classes of bingo players may be in the draw, or all classes of bingo players may be in it.
Second, they provide for the way in which prizes in kind are to be paid.
