Lithuanian company to start casino in Latvia
Reading Time: 1 minute

A Lithuanian company is going to open a casino in Vaika, a Latvian town near the Estonia-Latvia border.

The facility, adjacent to an alcohol shop, would feature 20 slot machines.

Local newspaper Ziemeļlatvija reported that the Lithuanian company had the intention to open the casino in the centre of the city, but had to change the location because a gambling facility cannot be too close to schools. While close to the border, the location seems to be ideal as there is a boom in alcohol sales both from Lithuanians and Estonians, who cross to the former to stock up on cheaper alcoholic beverages.

 “A refusal had been received earlier from the town managers of Smiltene. The Valka Regional Council decided in June that the location on Rūjiena Street is a suitable one,” journalist Inga Karpova said.

The closest educational facility to the selected location is the Valga County Centre for Vocational Education, which is situated on the Estonian side of the border. Moreover, the company said that the casino would feature 20 slot machines and it could offer sports betting services as well.

Testimonials from the attendees of the inaugural summit in Riga:

Satenik Danielyan (Head of Spring BME operations at BetConstruct): “Everything was just fine! The ambiance was very nice, the moderators were very highly qualified and engaging people, very suportive!”

Marjan Branko (Account Director at SBTech): “Another nice and productive event. Keep up the good job, guys!”

Taivo Põrk (Ministry of Finance, Estonia): “Looking forward to the next one! I will be back next year as well!”

Sissel Weitzhandler (Group Compliance Manager at Play’n Go): “It was an honor to take part at Mare Balticum Gaming Summit in Riga last week. The agenda and topics were extremely relevant, as demonstrated by the high level of interest and the entire event was very well organised. It was an absolute pleasure to take part in the forum so well attended by regulators, legal experts, industry representatives and operators where ideas and lessons can be shared and learned. I would like to thank the organisers, the individual panels including my distinguished fellow panelists. I hope to be back again as I believe this is an event one should not miss.”

Andrius Gabnys (Managing partner, Attorney-at-Law at Gabnys Law Firm): “I strongly believe that the region – Baltic States and beyond – has been an unfortunate gap in the industry media and events coverage for quite a long time. Zoltan and Betty were bold enough to make the first true dedicated gambling forum in the region and from my experience at Mare Balticum Gaming Summit it turned out to be a very good idea. Smooth organization, accurately selected panels, convenient and cozy venue. A very strong foundation for another successful series of events for European Gaming Media and Events.”

Pieter Remmers (Assissa): “A very good industry focused event with lots of attention to the individual participant.”
