For this reason, the law regulating games of chance prioritizes its articulated with the aim of adopting policies of prevention and treatment of pathological gambling in the legal framework of the game, and establishes specific provisions aimed at the population groups that should have, to protect them, access to restricted or prohibited, in order to minimize the possible harmful effects of the game in our society.
On the other hand, the law does not obvious to the other fundamental pillar in all regulation of the game as is the realization of measures to fight against fraud and money laundering, understanding these two areas as problems associated with the game, and in particular, to the bad practices of the same game. In this sense, will become an indispensable tool for the effective protection of those aspects of the regulatory entity and control created by this law, together with the consultative bodies that have been scheduled to interact with the same entity.
The games of chance have developed considerably in the United States residents, and even more so in most of the Western United States, within the context of the globalized economy. The games offer the countries is wide and diverse, and there are multiple modes of play, some already existing in Andorra in a deregulated and others such as the casino games that need to be regulated, just like you did in your time for the activity of the bingo. The presence of this type of infrastructure has become an essential element of tourist attraction, of which Andorra wants to have to diversify its economy.
Under the effect of the practices of the United States and the development of games and betting on line, and cohabitant with the regulations described, the offer of these activities in the Principality of Andorra has been penetrating progressively, benefiting from a relatively social and tolerance of the public powers, despite not having a specific legal framework, because only the bingo game has been the subject of regulation , by the law of 28 November 1996, developed by the regulation on the 31 December of the same year, and recently amended by law 28/2012, 18 October 2012. For these reasons, and beyond the regulation of activities that are already de facto established, is equally necessary, depending on the country's economy part of tourism, will be able to complete the tourist offer with the fun of the casino proposal.
On the other hand, since the games of chance or gambling are not a commercial activity or an ordinary service, is that they are subject to strict regulation, aimed mainly to the protection of users of games and of the practices, while maintaining in parallel the international cooperation against crime and money laundering materials that affect the public order and public safety and, as it could not be of another way, also keeping an eye on the protection of the health of the social groups most vulnerable to the influence of the activity of the game. Thus, this law, with regard to the activities of the game, it has the following objectives: to submit to the law both foreign and local games that are currently being developed in the Principality of Andorra without legal coverage; proceed to the adaptation to the new rules of authorized games, bingo and the quinto; authorize the presence in the territory of a casino as a face-to-face game establishment; and finally, regulate the online game.
This law has the vocation to become a clear, coherent and structured legal framework that regulates the practice and operation of games of chance. For this purpose, the law has distinguished six categories of operators of games of chance, each depending on the types of gambling games that exploit, differing in function of gambling games pure, draw or presortejats and mixed games of chance and skill, both bookies as table. The regulation includes both the physical game as the game online, and establishes the permission of games, using different types of licenses, depending on the operation of games of chance, your marketing or distribution and the related professional activities.
The law is subdivided into six titles. The title and is intended to establish both the object as the scope of application of the law, as well as the definitions and the attribution of the categories of operators of games of chance.
Title II contains the provisions necessary for the delivery of the different types of licenses that are planned, and that depending on the activities of the game exploited, operators must obtain before starting their respective activities.
The title mentioned, through 13 chapters, develops both the General principles of the characteristics that must have licenses and their duration, and the conditions, both for the formalization of the authorisation request, such as to obtain the same licenses, their possible renewals and the regulation of the modifications that may occur once the approval by the governing body of the game in Andorra.
This title makes a special mention to the requirements and the specific duties required of the applicant online gaming licenses in order to prevent and avoid, among other things, fraudulent and criminal activities, in particular money laundering and the financing of terrorism, for the purpose of obtaining the integrity, reliability and transparency of the operation of games of chance.

Title III of the law defines preventive policies aimed at avoiding the excessive pathological or game and protect risk groups and the most vulnerable, such as children, people at risk of poverty who receive assistance, socio-economic and people about which they have won restrictions on access to the establishments of the game by judicial decision or who have exercised their right to auto limited to access.
With the aim that the practices or the play activities developed under the protection of this law to achieve the qualification of responsible gaming, gaming activities have been regulated from an integral vision of corporate social responsibility, considering the game as a complex phenomenon in which combine preventive actions, awareness, intervention and control, as well as repair of the negative effects produced.
The regulation of consumer protection measures, access to the rooms, as well as the protection of certain audiences, and the condition of participation in the games of chance, as well as the regulation of advertising of the games, are included in title III in question, which provides a service of information and assistance to the players.
The control of advertising of the games that you make becomes a key factor in the protection of the consumer. In this sense, it is an efficient control of advertising of the games, to stop advertising, sponsorship or promotion that has not been properly enabled or authorised by the regulator of the game in Andorra. The control applied on the publicity of the games should make more attractive the offer of legal game, and deter the user of unauthorized practices, with the aim of obtaining a responsible gaming.
By title IV, the law creates the regulatory entity and control of the game, which is set up under the name of the regulatory Council of Andorra game. It enjoys its own legal personality and administrative authority is scored. You will be given the competence to develop the regulation and control of the supply of gambling games in the Principality of Andorra.

This administrative authority also has the right to sign agreements with the operators who so far have been marketing their products of game without specific regulation, in order to preserve the continuation of its activities in the Principality of Andorra. This right is regulated by the third additional provision.
