Andorra May Regulate Online Gambling

The tiny European nation of Andorra is reportedly working on new legislation that will legalize and regulate online poker which could potentially be passed in 2015.

The bill would regulate poker with the understanding that operators would have to obtain a Class D license. Land casinos would also be included in the bill, as the tiny country has more than 10 million visitors every year.

Online Poker would be controlled by the Consell Regulador Andorra del Joc (CRAJ), which would be formed if the bill is passed into law.

Andorra only has a population of 86,000 and is nestled in the mountains between France and Spain. The country is not part of the European Union, meaning that it can draft its own gambling laws without fear of reprisal for not following strict rules for competitiveness between countries.
