In 2018, the MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit was launched and had the aim to become a platform for learning and networking within the gambling industry stakeholders and government officials in the Baltic and Nordic region.
Right after the inaugural event has finalized in Riga last year, Taivo Põrk (Ministry of Finance, Estonia) has stated the following: “Looking forward to the next one! I will be back next year as well!“.

About the Gambling Industry in Estonia
Although the population of Estonia is not very large, gambling is one of the favorite pastimes of its citizens. According to a survey, no less than 80% of the country’s adult population have gambled at least once in their life.
In addition, the online casino industry is slowly gaining strength, as it has become legal at the beginning of 2010.
We must also mention the fact that Estonia has the most licenses issued in the Baltics when it comes to online gambling.
