Liechtenstein Gambling Guide

 

Liechtenstein, officially the Principality of Liechtenstein is a microstate in Central Europe. Liechtenstein shares borders with Switzerland to the west and south and Austria to the east and north. The country’s area is only 160 square kilometers with an estimated population of 37,000 citizens. Liechtenstein’s capital is Vaduz while its largest city is Triesenberg with a population of approximately 2600. Liechtenstein constantly ranks amongst the highest in terms of GDP per capita and Human Development (HDI). The country became one of the wealthiest in the world in the 1970s due to the low corporate tax which drew many companies to Liechtenstein. In Liechtenstein, the unemployment rate is one of the lowest in the world, at 1.5%.

Gambling is legal but strictly regulated* in the Principality of Liechtenstein. However, there aren’t any land-based casinos operating currently in the country. There were plans to open casinos in the country since the 19th century, but those plans never materialized. Since 2009, the government is willing to issue one casino licence but so far nothing happened.** Online gambling is not yet regulated. Players from Liechtenstein are accepted in numerous foreign online casinos.
