What Are The Legal Ages/s For Gambling In Your Country?

As I listened to talk back radio yesterday, a mother of a thirteen year old rang in, she said her son had been buying Lotto tickets since the age of eleven. Unbelievably, she could see no harm in this, and was extremely proud her son was up by $6500.

I am now curious to know about the legal age/s for gambling in your country, and if your countries rules differ from state to state?

Here in New Zealand, it appears we have some rather inconsistent laws regarding minors and gambling. The craziest part is the senseless justification for the age variation, that apparently has to do with deterring gambling addiction through playing games of instant gratification. Oh boy, have I missed something, when is gambling not gambling?

Here is some information taken from the New Zealand Youth Law website you may find rather surprising:

How old do you have to be to buy a lotto ticket?
There are no age restrictions for participating in lotteries like Lotto, Bulls Eye, Play 3 or Keno. If you’re under 18 years old and you win a prize of more than $1000, you have to get your parent or legal guardians to sign an Acknowledgement Form before you can claim your winnings.

Can I buy a scratch card if I’m under 18?
There is a legal age restriction on instant games or a lottery that is frequently drawn. Under the Gambling Act 2003, it’s a crime for anyone under the age of 18 to buy an Instant Kiwi ticket or for someone to buy a ticket on behalf of an under 18-year-old. It’s also illegal to sell an Instant Kiwi ticket to someone under 18.

At what age can I place a bet on a sporting event?
To bet on a race or a sporting event at the TAB, you have to be 18 years or over. You could be fined up to $500 for placing a bet or trying to place a bet if you’re under 18. If someone older tries to place a bet on your behalf, they can be fined up to $1,000.

Can I enter a casino when I’m 18?
No. The legal age to enter the gambling part of a casino in NZ is 20 years old. If you’re caught in a casino restricted area underage, you could be fined up to $500. Many casinos, such as Sky City, may also have company policies where a trespass order will be taken against any underage persons found on the gaming floor. Where this happens, you won’t be able to return to the casino for a period of up to 2 years – even if you happen to turn 20 during those 2 years.

You’re free to enter the unrestricted parts of the casino if you’re under 20 – e.g. restaurant in the casino building but outside the restricted area.

How old do you have to be to use gaming machines like pokies?
It is illegal to use a gaming machine like pokies at any clubs, pubs or restaurants if you’re under 18. So clubs will restrict access to under 18-year-olds if gaming machines operate within the club.

If you play on a gaming machine and win. If gambling operators reasonably suspect that you’re underage, they are allowed to not give you your winnings. They do have to keep a record of your name and address, the amount of money or the prize won, and the date. If you are legally allowed to be gambling and can prove your age within seven days, you can claim the money or prize back.

If you’re convicted under the Gambling Act 2003 for gambling when you’re underage, the Court can order that you to pay back any of your winnings to the gambling operator.

Hey there! Congrats on setting up your own club on Pokerstars, that sounds like a lot of fun!

Lottery tickets, it seems to me, can be purchased at any age, the main thing is to pay money for it. But the permitted age in gambling is already different in the countries. However, considering how many different online casinos like this one -- https://www.ufabet.school/ufa-slot/, I think that many teenagers can hide their location using VPN and play them. And officially, it seems that it is allowed to play in a casino from the age of 18, in some states of America from the age of 21. Well, we understand that everyone starts earlier, and thus either they win money or they lose.
