The message was clear and precise, the day of 24 March 2010, the Federal Council wants to accept the two new applications to open casinos in Switzerland. Both cities have made the request are Zurich and Neuchatel. But as mentioned in a previous article, the profits generated by the two institutions will be allocated next to common property in Switzerland.
The Federal Commission of Game Houses (CFMJ) has conducted statistical analysis and long on the problem of dependency in their territories following the establishment of new casinos. Two studies have been created and the result is quite positive for gambling. No problems to report and the management of dependents is maximum. Despite a slight deterioration in earnings in the year 2009, the crisis has not really affected the market for gambling Switzerland, compared to the remains of the World.
The rules to follow for future real casinos are established in the months to come. The Federal Commission of Game Houses wants to establish strict criteria to avoid overflow within their territory.
To prevent excess in Switzerland for several years now, there are two categories of casinos: type A and type B. Both are managed by the same committee but have no access to the same regulations. Therefore, changes will be made to these categories, especially for type B. Firstly, the number of slots will increase from 150 to 250. Then the common boundary of the jackpot will be revised upwards by nearly 200,000 Swiss francs. Finally, it is now impossible to have several jackpots in a single institution.
Note that a change on safety in casinos will be introduced. Given the many problems of robberies that took place in Switzerland in recent days.
