Simon’s Guide to Gambling and Online Gambling in Austria

This is a picture of the entrance of Austria's Casino Kitzbühel. This is the the header image of my guide to gambling and online gambling in Australia. Under the picture you can read about the various laws and regualtions governing gambling in Austria, including digital gambling, or "Glückspiele" how the Austrians call it.

Simon’s Guide to Gambling, Online Gambling in Austria

 

Gambling, including online gambling is legal in Austria, and is heavily regulated at the federal by the government. Gambling activity falls under the jurisdiction of the Austrian Tax Authority, and is regulated under the Law on Games of Chance (Glücksspielgesetz).*

An interesting aspect of the law on gambling is that it differentiates between two main types of gambling:

  • gambling,
  • and “small gambling” (kleines Glücksspiel).

Gambling (includes lottery, sports betting, poker): legal and regulated in Austria, land based casinos bookmakers, betting shops need a license to operate. Online gambling is legal, but not really regulated. Players can visit any online gambling website they wish to. 

Small gambling: under the jurisdiction of individual states, which means that regulations vary within Austria. Regulations also determine a maximum amount of gambling facilities in correlation with the population: the number of licenses cannot exceed one for every 1200 residents (one per 600 residents in Vienna, because of the tourists). Small gambling has strict rules in general. A small gambling salon can have only 50 slot or video poker machines at the most. The max bet is €10 maximum per spin. If a place only has a few machines (what is considered a “few” depends on the regional rules), then only €1 per spin is the maximum bet. In general players are allowed to play for a maximum of  three hours. Games must automatically shut off after two hours of uninterrupted play to help adhere to this part of the gambling law in Austria.

The main reasons for the strict gambling laws are manifold: the government seeks to prevent organised crime and money laundering, protect customers, especially those under the legal age, and maintain market stability.

Casino gambling in Austria

 

Online casino gambling in Austria: legal, not really regulated, brick&mortar require a licence

 

Casino gambling is legal in Austria and is strictly regulated. At the moment the only company legally allowed to operate casinos is Casinos Austria, which owns all of Austria’s twelve currently operating licensed casinos as well as several others abroad. The first modern casino in the country was also founded by Casino Austria, in 1934.*

Austria’s brick and mortar casinos offer several games including blackjack, roulette, poker and slot machines. These casinos are rather posh establishments in old historic buildings, some with dress code. This serves both to emphasise the elegance of the casinos and to distinguish them from small gambling venues.

Small casino gambling – Establishments with up to a maximum of 50 machines can be operated without a license. This means that anyone looking for small-stake games or slot machines, video poker machines in Austria can easily find a place (except in Vorarlberg, Salzburg, Tyrol, Vienna, where small gambling is forbidden).

Online casino gambling in Austria is not restricted. Online casino gambling operators must, in theory, acquire a licence prior to offering their services online, which can be a complex, lengthy and expensive process, so far only Win2day (operated by the Austrian lottery and Austrian Casinos) has an online gambling license. However, online gambling websites without a license are accessible as well and players are not forbidden from registering or playing on these websites. The result of this is that right now offshore, foreign online gambling websites dominate the Australian gambling market, and they are not interested in getting a local license and paying taxes on their earnings.

The online casinos below accept players from Austria.

Bingo in Austria

 

Online Bingo in Austria: legal, requires licence

 

Bingo is legal in Austria, but not as widespread as other forms of gambling are. The 12 large casinos in Austria do not have bingo at all. Small stakes live bingo games might still be available though, as it falls under the category of small gambling, and can be operated without license, but we couldn’t find any info on them online.

The Austria-based online gambling supersite, Win2day (operated by the Österreichische Lotterien Gesellschaft and Casinos Austria) offers various bingo games online both with a classic and a guaranteed prize system. Austrian players may also access foreign online bingo platforms, some of which are also available in German.

The following online bingo site accept players from Austria:

Poker in Austria

 

Online Poker in Austria: licensed, considered a game of chance, not skill, both small scale and high stakes at casinos

 

Poker is legal in Austria, and it is perhaps the most popular card game in Austria. Apart from small stakes games up €10 per hand (rules depend on the region or establishement) in smaller places (According to the so called “small gambling” rules), high stakes poker can also be played in the 12 licensed casinos operated by Casino Austria (that’s where the poker tournaments are always held, and they have private rooms as well).

Austria has its own big poker event Casinos Austria Poker Tour. The CAPT is a live poker tour with high stakes events in casinos of Casinos Austria, with the participation of poker pros from several countries.

Online poker is likely the best option for average players who want to avoid both the local micro-stakes games and the high stakes poker in posh, expensive Austrian casinos with dress codes. In 2008 the online poker and gambling platform, Win2day was founded, which is jointly owned by Casinos Austria and Austrian Lottery Company, which is the only domestic gambling site with poker. Players can, and often do also choose international sites for playing online poker (bigger player pool, better promotions, more online tournaments, more types, higher stakes and micro stakes), several of which are available in German.

The following poker websites below accept players from Austria.
