Paf was selected earlier as an online partner for Grand Casino Lucerne, thanks in large part to Paf’s good reputation and its technical and operational experience. The Swiss casino behind Mycasino.ch is one of only four land-based casinos that have obtained an online licence in the re-regulated Swiss gaming market. On Thursday 22 August, the gaming site mycasino.ch was opened to Swiss players.
“Many people at Paf have worked really hard to achieve this moment and we are pleased that Mycasino.ch is launched as the second entry into the newly regulated Swiss market. Now we are entering the next stage, in which a continued development of the range of games on offer and the gaming experience is the focus,” says Jesper Eliasson, Director of Paf’s business development.
Paf’s reputation and gaming responsibility
Paf was perhaps not the obvious choice as a partner of Grand Casino Lucerne. A number of gaming companies showed interest in the Swiss gaming market. However, Paf’s good reputation and industry-leading approach to responsible gaming became the two decisive factors.
“Our good reputation and well-known gaming responsibility were important factors for the Swiss gaming authorities. We were told that Paf was recommended to Grand Casino Lucerne for exactly those reasons. It is undeniably cool to have such a reputation in the gaming industry,” says Paf CEO Christer Fahlstedt.
The Swiss gaming site Mycasino.ch initially offers online slot machines. One of the slot games, Golden Rabbit, is specially designed and produced by Paf for the Grand Casino Lucerne gaming site. A new gaming category with live casino games will be launched in the autumn, featuring a live table from inside the actual Grand Casino in Lucerne.
