Keno Amendment Rules 1998


Note

These rules are administered in the New Zealand Lotteries Commission.


PURSUANT to section 90 of the Gaming and Lotteries Act 1977, the Minister of Internal Affairs approves the Keno Amendment Rules 1998, as set out in the Schedule, which were made by the New Zealand Lotteries Commission on 29 October 1998.


Schedule
Keno Amendment Rules 1998

PURSUANT to section 90 of the Gaming and Lotteries Act 1977, the New Zealand Lotteries Commission makes the following rules.

Rules
1 Title and commencement
  • (1) These rules may be cited as the Keno Amendment Rules 1998, and are part of the Keno Rules 19941 (the principal rules).

    (2) These rules come into force on the date of their notification in the Gazette.

2 Cancellation of ticket
  • Rule 7(1) of the principal rules is amended by omitting the word terminal, and substituting the word retailer.


Explanatory Note

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 rule 7 of the Keno Rules 1994.

The amendment recognises a development in the gaming computer system that allows a retailer with more than 1 terminal to cancel a ticket on a terminal other than the terminal on which the ticket was issued. Currently, a ticket can be cancelled only on the issuing terminal.

The amendment means that the Keno Rules 1994, the Lotto Rules 1996, and the Bingo Rules 1996 now all provide for cancellation by the return of a ticket to the issuing retailer, rather than to the issuing terminal.


Issued under the authority of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989.

Date of notification in Gazette: 19 November 1998.
