OlyBet, a betting company based in Estonia, has become the official sponsor of Baltic Basketball league.

It features 15 top basketball clubs from both countries.

Veiko Krünberg, Managing Director of OlyBet, said the sponsorship deal is for three years.

 “As a top supporter of basketball in the Baltic countries it was a question of honor to be in the game from day one,” Krünberg said welcoming the launch of a new major league in the region.

“Basketball is one of the most popular sports in both Estonia and Latvia, which is why this comprehensive cooperation will definitely strengthen OlyBet’s position even more as a top sports betting brand in the Baltic States,” Krünberg added.

OlyBet is a major supporter of basketball in the region having been the General Sponsor of top Lithuanian basketball club Zalgiris Kaunas for the last years and currently also sponsoring Latvian and Estonian national basketball team.

Playtech PLC, a gambling software developer recently lowered its revenue forecast as the company saw increased competition in the Asian market. This news caused the shares of Playtech PLC, London-listed company, to drop by about 30% the following day. The stock tumbled to a 5-year low of 5.3 British pounds.

A representative from the company commented on Playtech’s revenue prospects, saying: “Given the recent decline and in the absence of any change in market dynamics, we expect a significant impact on revenue throughout the rest of the year.” According to analysts at Investec, this drop could be as large as 25% of first-half average daily revenue in Asia. If the forecast is true, it reduces Playtech’s expected revenue from the Asian region by 70 million euros for the year. “Clearly the recent trading performance in Asia is disappointing,” – commented Mor Weizer, the CEO of Playtech. Aggressive pricing environment is being actively presented as the main cause of the underperformance in the Asian market.

According to Norske Casino webportal, Playtech’s overall performance, on the other hand, is strong and reassuring. Excluding the Asian market, Playtech showed a 7% increase in year-to-date average daily revenue in the B2B gaming business. Playtech expects to earn adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation of 320-360 million euros in 2018. For comparison, Playtech’s EBITDA in 2017 was 322.1 million.

Playtech PLC has established itself in the gambling software market as an innovative provider who cares about the customer experience

Playtech, which was founded in Tartu, Estonia in 1999 offers software for products like online bingo, poker, sports betting, scratch games, mobile gaming and other online casino games. Since its founding, the company has grown quickly to become a powerhouse in the gambling software industry. It is currently listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a part of the FTSE 250 Index. Currently, the company employs over 5,000 people, has offices in 17 countries and has 140 global licenses.

Playtech focuses on customer experience and uses innovative technology to distinguish itself from the rest of the market. “We are committed to offering our partners best-of-breed gaming products and services across all platforms. Our vision is to remove the technology barrier for our customers, while keeping them at the forefront of innovation. With our comprehensive set of products, platforms and content,” – reads the company’s website.

Latvia to launch receipt lottery next year
Reading Time: 1 minute

Latvia’s State Revenue Service jointly and the state-owned lottery company Latvijas Loto will launch a receipt lottery in the country next year. The lottery will have weekly draws, offering 10 cash prizes of 200 euros each, and monthly draws offering 3000 euros.

The lottery is planned for receipts higher than 5 euros excluding value-added tax (VAT). The Latvian citizens need to register their receipts online, recording details such as the location they got the receipt and the phone number to contact them in case of the winning. There are no age restrictions for this lottery.

The lottery will not be cheap for Latvia: the development of a special IT-system will require 200 thousand euros, and the prize fund and administrative expenses will cost 250 thousand euros in 2019 and 2020. But the authorities plan that they will receive more from this venture than they will spend to implement it.

State Revenue Service expect that the receipt lottery will help in the fight against shadow economy and result in additional 3 million euro of taxes. The Latvian Government instructed the Ministry of Finance to increase the forecast of VAT revenues in 2019–2020 by 2.95 million euros. Latvians will start to ask for checks and thus help the State Revenue Service to deal with unregistered cash flow, and thus, Latvia will improve fair trade and fair payment of taxes.
