The Lithuanian Gaming Control Authority has hardened its stance against unlicensed online operators deemed to be targeting national consumers.
The Authority has issued a warning to non-compliant businesses, reiterating that only licensed operators with special permission for online gambling are authorised to offer online gambling services.
It maintains that any active online companies that are not licensed for online gambling and have not secured the correct permits are acting illegally.
These requirements and regulations of online gaming operators are established in the Gaming Law of the Republic of Lithuania.
In a statement, the Control Authority said that it “strongly recommends all online gambling operators, to review all their activities related to remote gambling in the Republic of Lithuania and take actions to ensure that such services are not available for Lithuanian customers”.
