Gambling, casinos, slot halls and online casinos in Austria

Austria is a gambling nation. The State maintains a strict monopoly on gambling. Foreign supply of gambling activities is prohibited. International online gambling activities are also subject to the national gambling monopoly and may not operate in Austria. Otherwise, they are punishable by penalty regulations of the gambling law.

Austrian casinos are one of the country′s important tax payers. The Austrian Tax and Customs Administration Annual report 2017 claims that duties according to the Gambling Act in 2017 contributed EUR 553.1 million to the state treasury (PDF Document).

Laws and Regulators

The Austrian Gambling Act 1989 (Glücksspielgesetz, or GSpG), which was amended in 2010, regulates gambling in Austria (https://www.global-regulation.com/translation/austria/2999042/gambling-law-amendment-2010-%2528gspg-novelle-2010%2529.html).  Games of chance fall within the Ministry of Finance (Bundesministerium für Finanzen, or BMF). BMF is responsible for granting licenses to provide gambling services.

 GSpG introduced a national gambling monopoly. The Austrian gambling monopoly includes almost all games of chance. The few exceptions from this monopoly (betting activities, games of chance with low stakes) are regulated by regional laws (https://english.bmf.gv.at/taxation/Regulation-of-Games-of-Chance.html).

Casinos Austria AG, a part of Casinos Austria International, and the Austrian Lotteries (Österreichische Lotterien GmbH) are the only licensees in Austria. Their gaming revenues in 2018 were EUR 314.13 million and nearly EUR 3.94 billion respectively (https://www.casinos.at/downloads/Casinos-Austria-Group-Annual-Report-2018.pdf).

The Austrian Lotteries is licensed to offer different lottery games (https://www.lotterien.at/). Casinos Austria AG offers various table games and slots.

Land Based Casinos

Casinos Austria AG operates all twelve casinos currently licensed in Austria. Over 200 gaming tables and 2,000 slot machines draw more than 2.7 million visitors per year into Austrian casinos (https://leitbetriebe.at/en/casinos-austria-ag/). The official website of Casinos Austria provides information on the 12 casinos, range of games, and tournaments (https://www.casinos.at/de/casinos-austria).
