Akarana is the only gaming society in New Zealand that gives priority to grant applications that support the local Indian community (a large section of the population, which is largely ignored by other gaming societies).
Akarana is committed to strongly supporting community, cultural, and religious causes. Akarana also provides funding for amateur sport and education.
Akarana has held a gaming licence since 2012.
Akarana has recently been subject to a full audit by the Department of Internal Affairs and is committed to operating professionally, using industry best practice. Akarana’s directors and senior staff have a good working relationship with the regulator.
Akarana would not exist, and would not be able to provide valuable community funding, without its partner venues.
Akarana is dedicated to supporting its venues by providing modern, high-performing gaming machines, high-quality service, and the best possible training and technical support. Akarana is looking for venues to partner with it, to increase the local support that is provided to the Indian community.
