Though the Money Gaming Act made online gambling legal in Switzerland, heavy regulation remains in place in terms of licensed providers and as it relates to things like sports betting. There are strict penalties in place for players and for providers who may not abide by the regulation.
Offline gambling is also legal, with 19 land based casinos located across the country. Offline gambling has been legal in Switzerland since 2000 and is popular with local citizens and tourists alike. Most of these casinos offer traditional, expected games including slots, live and table games. Poker is particularly popular in Switzerland.
