First Swiss Online Casinos On Track for July Launch
Switzerland’s first four online casinos are due to launch on July 1, provided their applications are approved by the Federal Gaming Board.
According to local media, the Grand Casino Baden, Casino Davos, Grand Casino Luzern and Swiss Casinos’ Casino Pfäffikon are run the online casinos in tandem with their land-based operations. Of those, Baden already operates a free-to-play online casino with more than 15,000 registered players.
Under the law approved at the polls last summer, only the nation’s land-based casinos can run online gaming, and foreign companies can operate in the market only if they partner with local brick-and-mortar venues.
As many as 21 operators of land-based casinos can apply for online licenses, CND reported.
