Europe's tiny state of Andorra to legalise terrestrial and online gambling
Andorra, a tiny principality in the Pyrenees between Spain and France and home to around 85,000 people, could be the next online gambling licensing jurisdiction following a government announcement that it plans to legalise both terrestrial and online gaming.
Although detail is sparse at present, it appears that a draft bill is in progress that will establish a gambling regulatory authority along with a system for vetting and licensing locally-based and foreign operators.
According to the Fantini Gaming Report the principality is a tax haven, and also benefits from ski and other tourist activities.
