Casinò Lugano (formerly known as Teatro Kursaal) is a casino and theatre designed by Italian architect Achille Sfondrini in 1804. It is located in the city of Lugano, Switzerland.[1] A restaurant and café called Elementi Ristorante is located within the building. The theatre was the host venue of the first Eurovision Song Contest in 1956.[2]

Designed by the Italian architect Achille Sfondrini in 1804, Teatro Kursaal was the first games room with a café to open in Lugano. Biriba, Basset, and dice games were played in the establishment during the autumn fair. Upon the establishment of the Lugano Theatre Society in 1885, which consisted of 177 shareholders, discussions were held to modify the building for the intended purpose of theatrical and musical performances, ballroom dance and other shows. Plans were made to accommodate a café and restaurant adjacent to the main theatre.[1]

In 1912, the theatre acquired a gambling license. The society changed its name to Società del Teatro e Casinò Kursaal di Lugano in 1922. The Kursaal continued to increase its revenue after the Great Depression.

In 1946 the Kursaal broke its own financial record, accumulating 641,777 Swiss francs (equivalent of €521,899.91, US$707,469.04 or £441,643.70 as of October 2013) after staging operas, plays, concerts and films.[1]

On 24 May 1956, Kursaal was the host venue of the very first Eurovision Song Contest.[2]

The gambling stakes for playing were raised, from 2 Swiss Francs to 5 Swiss Francs, after a shareholders' vote in 1959.

The city of Lugano became the major shareholder in 1970 after its purchase of 184 shares. Following the ordinance of the Swiss Federal banking commission changes, fruit machines and boules were brought into the Kursaal.[1]

The fundamental principles were amended in 1993 to allow major games to be played on the premises. This license was later upgraded, to permit the company to operate as a casino. The theatre closed shortly after the last show in April 1997 and was demolished in 2001 to make room for the extension of the Casino. Casinò Lugano opened again on 29 November 2002.[1]

Casinos Austria International’s Grand Casino Bern in Kursaal has become the latest land-based casino in Switzerland to launch an online gambling website.

The website is now live and offers a range of online casino games to players in Switzerland.

The site will operate under Grand Casino Bern’s online gambling licence, which, secured in November last year, permits the operator to run online casino games alongside its existing land-based offering. Another Casinos Austria International property, Casino Interlaken, launched igaming under the domain in February this year.

Grand Casino Bern’s land-based facility opened in April 2002, but is currently operating on a limited hours and capacity basis due to novel coronavirus (Covid-19) restrictions in the country.

In July, Swiss gambling regulator Eidgenössischen Spielbankenkommission said online gaming licensees in the country were able to generate a total of CHF23.5m (£20.1m/€21.8m/$25.9m) in revenue during 2019.

Legal igaming launched in Switzerland in July 2019, with all revenue generated in the market coming during the latter part of the year.

In terms of land-based activity, total revenue from Switzerland’s 21 casinos amounted to CHF742.5m in 2019, of which category A licensees – larger venues in urban areas – contributed CHF449.0m.

Casinos Austria International (CAI), Casinos Austria’s subsidiary that operates venues in other countries, earlier this month posted a loss for the first half of 2020, as revenue fell by more than 30% to €52.8m.

The operator’s €52.8m in revenue for the six months to 30 June, was down 30.5% year-on-year from 2019.
