Switzerland’s Parliament passes the new Money Gaming Act

Switzerland’s Parliament passed in late September 2017 the new Money Gaming Act, which consolidates the country’s existing laws on casino games and betting/lotteries respectively into one single law. Crucially, the new Act will remove the existing ban on online gambling and create a system whereby holders of terrestrial casino licences will have the opportunity to offer casino games online. Dr Andreas Glarner, Yannik Hässig and Dr Alexandra Körner of MME Legal Tax Compliance outline the new Act, how it amends the current regulatory framework and the Act’s controversial IP blocking measures, and discuss the prospect of a referendum being held to block the new law on the basis of concerns around these IP blocking measures.
