STADLER VÖLKEL Rechtsanwälte GmbH

Betting and Gaming

Accessing or servicing the Austrian betting and gaming market, both online and offline, involves complex legalities within a framework that divides responsibilities between the Federal State and its nine Provinces (Länder), with a distinct separation between "betting" (skill-based games) and "gambling" (chance-based games). Depending on a game's nature within this context, one of two different licensing regimes will regularly apply.

Nevertheless, legal compliance in this sector extends beyond just obtaining licenses and overcoming market entry barriers. It involves complete adherence to all relevant laws, including the proper conduct of offers. Our vast experience positions us to address any gaming or betting-related issue, simple or complex, including cross-border scenarios.
