    Default First Swiss online casinos ready for July launch

    Switzerland’s first online casinos under the country’s new gambling regulatory regime are expected to go live in July after the first-batch of license applications were submitted with the Federal Gaming Board (ESBK).

    From Games Magazine:

    Aside from the ESBK, the Federal Council will need to review the four petitions. It is expected to announce its decision on whether the four land-based casinos should be allowed to proceed with the launch of their digital operations by the end of June.

    If the Federal Council greenlights the gambling venues’ applications, they will be able to go live with online gambling as early as July 1. However, the four applicants will also need to have all the games they are planning to offer to online customers certified by the ESBK. That process, too, is expected to be completed by mid-2019.

    As many as 21 operators of land-based casinos can apply for an online casino license. However, if the first four applications get the necessary approval, the winning applicants will be able to launch their online gambling operations by mid-2019 and thus gain important competitive advantage in the newly regulated market.

    It sounds a bit like Belgium. Which is bad news for players, as brands on the market will be crappy sites like Gaming1.
