The rising popularity of gambling in Latvia motivates the country’s political force to come up with new restrictions, thus the possible move of gambling parlours into five-star hotels.
The NCP (conservative pary) is already collecting signatures in order to support the possible move of gambling establishments to the luxury hotels. They have to collect 10,000 signatures. If they succeed the bill is going to go to the Latvian Parliament for debate. In 2017 the NCP managed to close down 42 gambling parlours in the capital city of Riga.
