Enlabs is resuming its online and land-based operations in Latvia after the coronavirus lockdown.

Land-based gambling in Latvia was temporarily banned following the passage of an emergency bill to combat the virus, which came into effect on March 22.

However, the country’s gambling regulator, the Lotteries and Gambling Supervisory Authority, had to seek clarification on apparently contradictory articles of the bill that both concerned the status of online gambling. Upon receiving an update, the regulator suspended all online gambling licences on April 6.

Saeima passed a new bill ending the state of emergency on June 5, which was signed and came into force on June 9. Under this bill, the state of emergency is officially over and both online gambling sites and gambling halls may reopen.

“Latvia is back. Now we can continue to provide the best service and entertainment to our customers. We have worked hard to make the customer experience even better, and are now looking forward to launching updated and improved products. The Enlabs team has shown fantastic energy and solidarity during the long period, and I want to thank them all for their efforts,” George Ustinov, president and chief executive of Enlabs, said.

After starting out as an affiliate in 2009 and developing some recognized review portals, I have moved deeper into journalism and media. My experience has lead me to move into the B2B sector and write about compliance updates and report around the happenings of the online and land based gaming sector.
