Reading Time: 1 minute


The Lotteries and Gambling Supervisory Inspection of Latvia has provided counselling to 127 gambling addicts in the past four months.

“The goal of the inspection is not only supervising lotteries and gambling but also reducing associated risks,” Signe Birne, Chief of Lotteries and Gambling Supervisory Inspection said.

She stresses that one of the most accessible methods for overcoming gambling problems is free psychological support to the people who are aware of their problem and want to fight their urge to gamble.

To protect society’s interests and people’s rights to refrain from excessive gambling, a special register of self-refrained gamblers will be formed in 2020. People will be able to input their personal data into the register either in person or with assistance from Lotteries and Gambling Supervisory Inspection, as well as online.
