When one refers to Austria, there are many images that may spring to one’s mind. For example, cows, the Alps, Lederhosen, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. One of the few things that may not spring to mind, is a booming gambling industry, however, this is something characteristic of Austria.
Austria is very successful when it comes to the gambling industry. The situation in the nation is very interesting being that, though Austrian gambling laws may be lax, the government controls the industry with an iron fist.
Just about every form of gambling is legal in the central-European nation including lotto, slots, card games and sportsbetting, but the industry is very well regulated and the government puts the extra revenue to good use.
As far as internet gambling in Austria is concerned, this nation is one of the most successful in not only Europe, but the world. Many of the world largest online gambling companies are based in Austria – to a certain extent.
Though major companies like Bwin may be Austrian, their headquarters are actually based elsewhere in the world in locations like the Caribbean. This is due to the fact that the companies which gain a license to operate in Austria are only permitted to provide entertainment for Austrians.
Thus, online casinos in Austria can be approached in two ways, through Austrian licensed sites, and those licensed abroad. The Vienna-based Casino Austria International has just taken the next step in bringing a higher-quality gaming experience to their players.
The company has recently decided to use a cutting edge software that was recently developed in Canada. Chartwell, the software company, is glad to join forces with the Austrian gambling giant to bring players the efficiency and flexibility demanded by today’s leading gaming brands.
