About LOTTERIES AND GAMBLING SUPERVISORY INSPECTION OF LATVIA

The first games of chance in Latvia were organized and the gambling market began its rapid development in early nineties due to the regaining of independence. In the summer of 1991 the first casino was registered in Latvia. At that time also increased the amount of companies, who organized different kinds of lotteries in our country. But as at that moment there were no legislative acts that would regulate the organization procedure of lotteries and gambling and also because of the insufficient supervisory and control of the lotteries and gambling market by the state, its development was spontaneous and not regulated.

At this period of time many small companies were involved in the organization of lotteries and gambling, who could not always ensure the organization of these games at the necessary level. Therefore the gaming business was discredited and the player suffered, as well as the revenue in the state budget from lotteries and gambling was very small.

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.”
