Österreichische Lotterien GmbH has been awarded the licence valid for fifteen years, effective October, 1 2011. Finance State Secretary Andreas Schieder said that due to Austrian Gaming Law's minimum requirements not being met, three of four applications failed.

Government legislation has strict regulations pertaining to this particular licence with prerequisites including unproblematic ownership structures, effective oversight processes and applicants having clear equity of Euro 109 million in order to enable the fulfillment of obligations to winners.

It is important to underline that Österreichische Lotterien GmbH (Austrian Lotteries) has been providing its offering to Austrians for the past twenty-five years.
