From Morning Report, 7:24 am on 15 September 2022

The Minister of Internal Affairs Jan Tinetti wants Lotto to ban the use of credit cards for online gambling.

But Lotto says it doesn't want to impose that on its customers and claims it already has some of the strongest safeguards of any state lottery in the world.

Guyon Espiner has been investigating Lotto as part of a series for RNZ's In Depth team, and filed this report.
