Regulated bookmakers in New Zealand
In New Zealand the list of licensed sportsbooks is huge. Every year at least one new operator appears who obtains the corresponding license to be able to operate legally in our country. However, the process is not as simple as it seems.
How do you get a sports betting license?
Getting a license to offer online sports betting is not easy at all. L a website must meet certain requirements and have a special security measures and appropriate to the type of services it offers. It is common to see how legal sports betting operators spend months and even years perfecting their websites, despite already having the license granted.

Licensed bookmakers must obtain it through the Directorate-General for the Regulation of Gambling , the official licensing body, also known as DGOJ. For each type of bet or game offered (roulette, slots, horses...) a new license is necessary, so the process is complex and with many requirements. Currently in our country there are more than 40 legal online bookmakers that are licensed . Every year new legal sportsbooks appear in New Zealand with a license, so the competition between them for offering the best service is maximum.

Can an unlicensed bookmaker operate in New Zealand?
By proxy, it is clear that an international bookmaker can operate in New Zealand and offer its services to players. In addition, anyone could register.
However, it should be borne in mind that the DGOJ is constantly searching for and controlling pages of this type, to block them and prevent their proper functioning, leaving only the regulated bookmakers in New Zealand available and operational.
The risks of playing in those unlicensed sportsbooks in New Zealand they are obvious: it is not regulated or protected by the DGOJ , that is, their websites do not comply with the requirements and security measures necessary to operate in New Zealand, so it is a very risky decision where it is our money that is in danger. If there is a problem with that house in question, we will not be able to do anything since neither the New Zealand law nor the DGOJ will be able to act before an illegal bookmaker. That is why Innovate Change always recommends registering and playing only at licensed and regulated New Zealand bookmakers.
Is there a need for so many bookmakers?
As in any business, the more offer there is, the better for the user . That is why it is very advantageous that there are numerous legal sportsbooks in New Zealand, as that means that there will be promotions and more betting options .
We always recommend trying all the houses, since the list of bets they have is very different between them. They use different quota providers, different designs, and some are better than others depending on what we are looking for. What is clear is that the more bookmakers there are, the better, since it will translate into a better offer, more competitiveness between them, better customer service, etc.
