Gambling operator Optibet has challenged the decision of the Latvian parliament (Saeima) to ban online gambling in the Latvian Constitutional Court.
“With this decision, legitimate business was eliminated while illegal operators do not comply with any restrictions,” Dainis Niedra, Head of Optibet in the Baltic States, said.
In his opinion, the decision to ban online gambling has nothing to do with the fight and threats to the population of Latvia related to the pandemic, which means that it does not meet the declared goals.
It is worth mentioning, that on March 20, the Latvian parliament supported the government’s proposal to close gambling halls and ban online gambling during the pandemic.
IGT Enhances iLottery in Lithuania with Remote Game Server and Compelling eInstants
International Game Technology PLC announced that its subsidiary, IGT Global Solutions Corporation, has signed a contract with EULOTO UAB (Euloto), the operator providing lottery in the Republic of Lithuania. As part of the agreement, IGT will deploy its advanced cloud-based remote game server (RGS) and at least 12 eInstant games each year.
IGT will integrate its RGS platform with Euloto’s iLottery system, enabling Euloto to have access to a wide variety of eInstant content. IGT’s eInstant product lineup contains numerous themes, play styles, omnichannel games, popular licensed content and the award-winning progressive jackpot games. Engaging game titles include Gold Blast, Shocking 6’s and Castle Cash.
“IGT’s vast content portfolio will complement Euloto’s iLottery program and offer our players exciting new games to experience. Deploying IGT’s RGS in the cloud also aligns with our goals of providing our players with modern, high-quality solutions, while providing us with the dynamic scalability and reliability required to help grow our business,” EULOTO UAB Director Mantas Lebedžinskas said.
“The integration of IGT’s cloud-based RGS will reduce the need for Euloto to go through any major iLottery system conversions in the future because the infrastructure in the cloud is always up-to-date. This advanced technology enables the Lottery to quickly choose which eInstant games they want to offer to their players from IGT’s library of exciting themes and play styles,” said Srini Nedunuri, IGT Senior Vice President, Global iLottery.
