Gambling environments for 20 years and above
SKYCITY Auckland is fully determined to ensure that those under the required age steer clear of the betting floors and thoroughly authorize the elimination of minors from any betting activity in casinos.
The betting staff and security personnel are fully prepared in being aware of any minors and any of our staff can encounter and deal with any minor and request for an evidence of age.
The management of SKYCITY Auckland doesnít put up with the loitering of kids especially when ignored or neglected in any area of the establishment.
Staffs should file a complaint to the security department immediately they notice that a kid has been ignored or neglected by their parent or guardian.
The security personnel will get involved immediately and find the person in charge of the neglected kid. The police are approached once carelessness is confirmed and the customer is restricted from the SKYCITY Auckland building.
The car parks are usually being watched by the security personnel as well as the neighboring environment in the area to locate any neglected or ignored kid in vehicles.
