SkyCity has confirmed it will launch an online casino by the end of this year. Spokesperson Colin Espiner says a location is yet to be set, but New Zealand and Australia are ruled out, given online gambling is illegal in both countries.

Newstalk ZB's Heather du Plessis-Allan speaks to Internal Affairs Minister Tracey Martin about the Government's options for tax and regulation, and whether online gambling can be banned outright.
