The festival is mainly B2B, however, it is designed to avoid the “stiffness” these types of events sometimes have by capturing the fun and relaxed ambiance. GWF is large enough to get an overview of the main tendencies in the Nordic and Baltic region, and small enough to make friends with all participants – The friendships you will make in GWF, will follow you all your life.

  • Plenty of useful workshops, game company, art, technology & education expo, pitching opportunities and business meetings.
  • The conference and interactive events are divided in 5 tracks: General, Art (visual, audial, haptics), Unreal Engine and XR.

  • Nordic Game Discovery Contest Baltic semi-finals where developers from Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania can showcase their game to publishers and industry experts and compete for the place in the Nordic Game Discovery Contest Grand Finals.

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.
