Auckland Entertainment

Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city and also one of the worlds most sprawling, bounding the Waitemata harbour in the East and the Manakau harbour in the West. Auckland has hosted two Americas Cup contests in recent years.

Everywhere you look in Auckland, you can see Sky Tower. See it peeping over the SKYCITY Metro cinema multiplex. Yes, it looks like Sky Tower owns many other places in Auckland too. It has the Megascreen, New Zealand’s largest cinema screen.

Think SKYCITY and you think - Casino, Sky Tower, Theatre and Hotel complex in the central Auckland city.

Think Casino, think gambling.

Here is a brief conclusion of the results of the 1999 New Zealand Gaming Survey:

The majority of New Zealanders aged 18 years and over have gambled at least once in their lifetime and most New Zealanders had gambled in the six months preceding the survey. However, less than half (41 percent) of New Zealanders gamble once a week or more. Lotto is New Zealanders’ favourite gaming activity and the activity that the greatest proportion of the population has participated in, especially once a week or more.
