Online casino and gambling experts, Jackpot247, have commented on the possibility of regulated online gambling in Switzerland.

A new gaming bill in Switzerland promises that online gambling from brick-and-mortar casinos could soon be legalised in the country. A draft of the new bill deposited by the Swiss Federal Government is aimed at regulating online gambling, with all winnings set to be tax free and some poker tournaments allowed outside of land-based casinos with restrictions. Under the new rules, land based casinos would be allowed to offer internet gambling services to Swiss residents.

A recent report from the Casino Federation explained how an estimated CHF 100 million (£67.44 million) currently goes to foreign gambling operators, on which residents are free to play, a year. The new bill would allow each of the country’s 26 cantons to decide on licensing policies for themselves, but would make winnings tax free for players within the country.

Online gambling experts, Jackpot247, have commented on this possible move for online gambling in Switzerland, celebrating its potential to bring lucrative business back to the country. A spokesperson for the company said:

“Switzerland’s decision to allow land-based casinos to offer online gambling seems important to developing the industry in the country, as revenue from casinos has reportedly dropped in recent times. By legalising online gambling, residents can opt to play on websites operating within the country instead of going elsewhere, and the move to make winnings tax free as they are in the UK and various other countries, makes the plan to regulate online gambling all the more attractive.”

Jackpot247 designs, creates and operates live roulette games broadcast on ITV and Sky channel 86, using casino certified equipment. With the best range of online casino games, the firm also provides live black jack online, roulette, poker, arcade games and Jackpot 247 casino slots available to play online and on mobile, with a view to providing an authentic casino experience to the home.
