It has been a hard and stressful period for some of the companies who battled daily by reaching out to their clients base and asking for feedback via votes to help them climb the charts and be included in the shortlist for inaugural Baltic and Scandinavian Gaming Awards (BSG Awards).

During March, the industry had the chance to cast their votes online for their favorite operators, software suppliers, and connected service providers and help them reach the Top 5 for their respective categories.

The online voting closed on the 31st of March at midnight and we are happy to announce that a total of 28641 votes have been submitted during the session and all companies who made the shortlist should feel proud about this achievement.

With the inaugural Baltic and Scandinavian Gaming Awards, which is part of MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit, we have implemented a new voting system that has further increased the transparency of the session. We are happy to say that many companies have expressed their gratitude about the transparency of the awards and we would like to congratulate every company who has made it to the shortlist and even those who haven’t for their commitment to the awards. We now head to Vilnius for the final stage where the attending delegates of the conference will cast their votes to decide the winners of each category, continuing the mission of giving the jury authorship to the industry when it comes to deciding the winners.” commented Zoltán Tűndik, Co-Founder, Co-Owner and Head of Business at European Gaming Media and Events.

The shortlists for each category can be found below and as mentioned in the statement, the winners will be decided by the attending delegates via final voting session at the second edition of MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit, which will take place on the 9th of May in Vilnius, Lithuania at Radisson Blu Royal Astorija Hotel.

Latvia’s Gambling Regulator to Offer Psychologist Support to Problem Gamblers
Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Latvia’s gambling regulator, the Lotteries and Gambling Supervisory Inspection (IAUI), is going to provide state-funded psychologist support to problem gamblers in the country.

The gambling regulator announced that Magdalēna Pranaite, the famous psychologist in Latvia, would be delivering the sessions on every weekday from 8:30 to 17:00 at its premises in the Latvian of Riga, free of charge. The family members of problem gamblers will also have access to specialised sessions.

“When gambling becomes addictive, not only the player suffers, but also people close to them and they need the help of their whole family. However, it’s up to the player to take the first step themselves. A psychologist can help them take this first step, which involves recognising, accepting and finding solutions to a problem,” IAUI said.

IAUI also said that those who are willing to have psychologist support can now contact them and register.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Enlabs continues its product development with the launch of live casino from Evolution Gaming in Estonia via Optibet, the Baltics leading gaming brand.
In line with the company’s strategy of having the best and most complete experience for their customers across the Baltics this is yet another step in positioning Optibet as the obvious choice for the customer.

The Estonia launch is the first stage of a long-term collaboration with Evolution Gaming, the world’s leading live casino provider.

“I believe that live casino represents a big opportunity for Enlabs in the Baltics and beyond, our decision to partner with Evolution Gaming is a clear indication of this. This new provider addition is the most important live casino product improvement in Enlabs history. Live casino has become a popular product and the fact that Evolution Gaming is the market leader in this vertical, we have no doubt that this partnership will generate continued growth for what is already our fastest growing brand. The Evolution Gaming integration is part of a larger focus on the live casino vertical. To compliment this new provider arrival, we have also revamped our live casino lobby and have improved our promotional capabilities. I look forward to seeing the results of this hard work and rolling out these product improvements into our other markets as well” says Chris Davis, Head of Product.

Robert Andersson, CEO and President continues: “With this, we have delivered on all our launch plans for Q2 and will continue our plans for Q3 and Q4. On top of many minor launches and updates we have now also delivered BestCasino for the US, the new betting product in Lithuania, Poker and now Evolution Gaming in Estonia. All this sets us up for a strong finish to the year and further strengthens our position as the most competitive operator in the Baltics and beyond.”
