LuckyCasino, Videoslots and Avento will be the among the first to offer Swintt’s games to players in Sweden, with more expected to follow over the coming months.

Lithuania Gambling Supervisory Authority Imposes €15,000 Fine on Top Sport
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Lithuania’s Gambling Supervisory Authority has issued operator Top Sport UAB with a fine of €15,000 for failing to properly install a digital video recording system at two of its retail betting facilities.

An investigation by the regulator found that systems placed at the two locations in Klaipėda were not recording the premises properly.

The Authority said at one of the sites the video system set up to capture images of anyone who enters the shop was not recording accurately and the images were blurred, meaning it was not possible to identify those who had visited the premises.

The regulator’s investigation also found that the recording systems at both locations failed to capture images of financial transactions and also how much money was being paid in and out at each facility.

As such, the Authority said this breached article 15 part 3 of the Gambling Law of Lithuania, which states that video recordings must clearly show people entering the betting shop, as well as the actions of gamblers and bookmakers at the location.

The Authority noted that the decision is open to appeal by Top Sport.

A Danish court has backed an order from the country’s gambling regulator resulting in a record 82 illegal websites being blocked.

It is the eighth time that the Danish Gambling Authority has gone to court to have illegal websites blocked that offer gambling activities such as betting and online casino to Danes without a licence.

On 22 September 2022, the court in Frederiksberg ruled in favour of the Danish Gambling Authority in all 82 cases that had been reported. It is the highest number of blockings at one time since 2012, when the Danish gambling market was partially liberalised, and the Danish Gambling Authority began blocking websites that illegally offer gambling to Danes. By comparison, the Danish Gambling Authority’s action against 55 websites in 2021 was upheld.

“The Danish Gambling Authority was established to ensure the framework for a fair gambling market. One of our most important tasks in that context is to protect players against illegal gambling and to ensure that they are not exposed to gambling providers that do not have a licence in Denmark. At the same time, it is very important that we ensure that the operators who are licensed to offer gambling in Denmark can run their business under orderly conditions and therefore our work to block illegal websites is very important,” Anders Dorph, Director of the Danish Gambling Authority, said.

Since the current Gambling Act came into force in 2012, the Danish Gambling Authority has had a total of 227 illegal websites blocked by the city court.
