Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Gaming Control Authority (GCA) of Lithuania has accused Kindred Group of violating the gambling laws. GCA said that the operator is “openly and blatantly” disregarding the gambling laws.

GCA has already blocked the Unibet and Trannel brands of Kindred for offering gambling products and services without necessary permissions. The Kindred Group was operating the two online casinos and gambling brand without a local license.

In 2016, Lithuania has banned all overseas gambling operators from offering their products and services in the country. The gambling regulator has sent a total of 45 court orders and warned the operator as well as the players who are registered with overseas gambling operators operating in the country. TOPsport, Olympic Casino Group Baltija, Tete-A-Tete Casino, Balticbet, Bese Casino, Unigames and the Gambling Strategy Group are amongst the only seven licensed regulators allowed to operate in Lithuania.

“The mentioned companies change internet domain name systematically and continue to offer their services to Lithuanian customers, openly and blatantly violating the law. Such behavior from one of the largest online gambling operators in Europe, intentionally infringing national law and offering illegal online gaming services, is treated as deliberate infringement of legal requirements and an absence of social responsibility,” the gambling regulator said.
