Switzerland is a white-level online gambling jurisdiction because of unclear signals from their government.

Switzerland is a central European country. It borders Italy to the south, France to the west, Germany to the north and Austria to the east.


Online gambling is in an atypical situation right now in Switzerland. The government has come out publicly with the position that it's illegal to gamble online from the country. However, it's not clear if their anti-gambling laws apply to online games. With that having been said, their government has attempted no enforcement on any level of any type of ban on Internet gambling, and they actually look like they could regulate the industry in the years to come.

Switzerland is a good example of a country that's fallen behind the times in this particular area. With as forward-thinking as they seem to be in a lot of areas, this seems to be one arena that's fallen through the proverbial cracks. If they were to regulate the industry, it would help to protect the players while simultaneously building revenues for the state.


No form of licensing exists on any level for Switzerland. At the time of this writing, they're considering a limited licensing approach that allows land-based casinos to offer online games, but these would not be open to foreign opeators. Along these lines, the European Commission will probably have a fit and complain, much like they have in similar cases from other countries.

In any event, it's unclear if it will go forward any time soon, let alone even happen in the first place, so there's no real time table that players can use to estimate when regulation will happen with any degree of accuracy.

Player Protections

Because the government is not tied to online gambling oversight in any way, shape or form in this country, there are no player protections in place for online players. Because of this, players are commended to stick with reputable sites that have a history of doing the right thing for their players.

With that having been said, players don't have to worry about government blacklists or banks blocking transactions since neither of those things have happened yet. Chances are that they won't start since the laws for online gambling are particularly vague.

The reason why your withdrawal was denied was due to you claiming MORE than four free bonuses without making a successful deposit between free bonus claims. Yes the bonus was sent to you to thank you for your previous deposit, but that deposit was more than a month ago.  We clearly state that all players need to adhere to free bonus terms and also ensure that they keep their free money redemptions to a minimum or alternatively make frequent deposits to ensure they maintain a health bonus to purchase ratio. You are more than welcome to claim free bonuses, but please make sure to deposit frequently  Regards Jason   thank you jason. yes  i know why i was  denied- as i said  i know your rules- it is me that i made an error when i see the thanks bonus- and  then i was  confused  when one day after i received an other bonus where i was eligible  that is all- you explained me  that te $40 was for active players  and $50 for no depositors - ok it is clear  for me now- just  a mistake- thank you fo r  your intervention-I am  not an  enough active  player so  i am no depositor- please i sent my documents  and i did no get a confirmaton about the  account  verification- can  you make something   for that please ? Thank you very much  for your help Jason  "

    "Hi! I started playing online casino in 2006, before I was playing slot machines in land casinos. i discovered the online casino world by simply clicking on a pub on the internet and it allowed me to open my first account on an online casino.Since I was passionate about slot machines, I preferred playing in an online casino instead of the traditional casinos because i found excitement in an online casino is much larger, it not only money but also save a lot of time while enjoying the same excitement at home.My first casino was Casino770, i started playing super multitimes progressive slot and I remember I won with good combinations.  "
