Lithuanian Regulator Issues Fine for Illegal Ads on Basketball Website

Lithuanian Regulator Issues Fine for Illegal Ads on Basketball Website
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Lithuania’s Gambling Supervisory Authority has fined an employee of a digital media business for placing illegal gambling ads on basketball news and information website Krepšinis.net, after a court confirmed its authority to take action.

The site was found to be hosting gambling ads with slogans and animated backgrounds, and featuring promotional bonuses, all of which are prohibited under Lithuanian regulations. These ads also lacked the mandatory warnings required in gambling ads.

The regulator said that Krepšinis.net had been a “refuge for illegal gambling advertising for several years.” This, it explained, was due to the site being registered outside of Lithuania, making it difficult to enforce advertising regulations.

However, the Vilnius City District Court ruled that advertising gambling in a way that contravenes Lithuanian law on the site is not permitted, as the site targets Lithuanian customers.

“With gambling advertised on Krepšinis.net, law-abiding Lithuanian portals found themselves in an unequal situation, and citizens were illegally encouraged to participate in gambling,” the regulator explained.

After conducting an investigation, the Gambling Supervisory Authority determined that the ads were placed by a business named UAB All Media Digital, which provides advertising services for websites. As a result, the employee responsible for placing the ads was fined €1500.

Entain Plc Completes All Enlabs Takeover Duties
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Entain Plc has announced that it has contractually completed its €370 million takeover of online gambling group Enlabs AB.

Issuing a market statement, Entain confirmed that it had secured 67 million Enlabs shares, corresponding to 96% of the Nordic Nasdaq First North firm’s total shareholding.

Prior to this announcement, 94% of Enlabs shareholders had approved of Entain’s revised SEK 53 per share offer, disclosed on 22 March – qualifying its takeover approach as unconditional for Enlabs shareholders.

As part of its buyout obligations, Entain had extended its offer acceptance period until April 1, in order to enable existing Enlabs shareholders to accept its deal terms.

Completing its outstanding duties, Entain maintains its revised deal timetable in which the FTSE100 betting group expects to declare the full settlement of its Enlabs takeover on April 13.

Updating stakeholders, Entain emphasised that remaining unsettled Enlabs shares held “no financial exposure,” allowing the company to proceed with the full settlement of its deal – for which Entain will not extend its acceptance period any further.
