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.

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.”
