Further details have been released regarding the tender process for the new licence for a single casino in Andorra.
According to The Andorran Gaming Control Board (CRAJ), operators must first establish the availability of land or premises for the casino and show that it must have at least 2,000 sqm for the public, excluding terraces and outdoor spaces.
Once this has been demonstrated, the board, along with other government bodies, will award points based on a number of key criteria, while the maximum score that each offer can reach is capped at one hundred.
Points will be awarded based on architectural design, locations and proximity to tourist services, quality, development time, and the economic benefits and employment generated.
Meanwhile, the CRAJ will award a maximum often points-based on the investment that the project will contribute, with further points awarded based on each additional E350,000 that are allocated to the project, up to a maximum of five additional points.
In2013,the government first gave the greenlight for a single casino licence in the Catalan-speaking country.
In January 2015, Andorra’s legislative committee completed the draft of a bill that paved the way for a land-based casino and online gaming.
