Switzerland – Two new Swiss casinos licensed to operate online games

By - 25 November 2019

The Swiss Federal Council has extended the Berne and Interlaken casino concessions allowing them to operate online casino games. The casinos will be able to launch their activities online as soon as the Federal Commission of Gaming (CFMJ) has granted them the necessary authorisation.

Coming into effect on January 1, 2019, the Federal Gambling Act gave all 21 Swiss gaming houses the opportunity to operate online casino games. To do this, however, the Federal Council must grant them an extension of their concession.

On the recommendation of the CFMJ, “the Federal Council has approved the license extension applications for the Bern (Grand Casino Kursaal Bern AG) and Interlaken (Casino Interlaken AG) casinos. Before they can put their games online, the CFMJ must however have examined and authorised. ”

At its meeting on June 7, the Federal Council extended the casino concession in Baden, Davos, Lucerne and Pfäffikon. After reviewing the games on offer and obtaining the necessary permits, these gambling houses began their online activities between July 5 and September 9.
