International operators’ plea to enter Swiss iGaming market rejected by court

A Swiss court has denied bids by foreign iGaming companies to join the Swiss market, which gaming regulators have confined since 2019 to Swiss-approved games of chance. In four different rulings the Federal Administrative Court decided against Malta-based Interwetten International Ltd, Videoslots Ltd, bet-at-home Entertainment Ltd, and Lopoca Gaming Ltd in actions against the Swiss Federal Gaming Board trying to evade the prohibition.

This means that Swiss gamblers may bet online only with Swiss casinos and lotteries that pay tax in the nation and that safeguard individuals against falling victim to addiction.

The court decision concluded: “It goes without saying that the limitation of access to online gaming services that are not regulated in Switzerland is in the public interest and can be implemented with rigorous measures”.
