The landlocked nation of Luxembourg borders France, Germany, and Belgium. On the surface, its gambling laws may seem similar to other countries in this region. However, it has a somewhat unique position. Luxembourg manages to have one of the highest GDPs in the world while also imposing surprisingly strict gambling rules on its citizens.
It is more or less impossible for a company to create an online casino in this country. As a result, Luxembourgers have to seek out foreign markets. The nation also lacks the regulations seen in many other parts of the continent. Instead, there are often discussions of legalization without any significant action.
The gambling tastes of citizens in this country mainly reflect the restrictions that have been put in place. There is a healthy market for online casino games that cannot be played within their brick-and-mortar counterparts.
The Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Justice govern gambling laws. Their authority does not reach online casinos run by companies outside of the country. Therefore citizens can simply access these games without facing repercussions. It remains to be seen if local online casinos will ever be made legal.
