Who we are

Philosophy of the Grand Casino Bern

What we represent

The business activities of the Grand Casino Bern are governed by the sociopolitical objectives anchored in the Swiss Gambling Act. The Grand Casino Bern’s aim is to generate optimum profit, not maximum profit. Likewise, the public authorities’ priority is not to achieve the maximum tax revenue, but tax revenue from the most socially viable endeavours.

Absolute integrity is at the heart of our company. Our involvement goes beyond what is required of us by law. Combating organised crime, preventing money laundering and preserving the social system are a matter of course for us.
