Lithuania Has Blacklisted International Betting Sites

In an effort to crack down on unlicensed International gambling operators, Lithuania’s gambling regulator, the Gaming Control Authority (GCA), has blacklisted a number of gaming operators. The initial list contains thirty gambling sites run by three gambling operators – William Hill, Unibet and Betway, plus domains linked to Betsson’s Triobet brand.

All International operators were advised that from January 1st, 2016 they would need to obtain a local gambling license in order to be able to continue operating in Lithuania. This week, the four operators were put on Lithuania’s blacklist. The GCA received the go-ahead from the local courts to issue binding orders to Internet service providers that all sites of the four operators must be blocked.

Virginijus Dauksis, director of the GCA who has been tasked with cracking down on foreign unlicensed gambling operators who are targeting Lithuanian players, has warned that more names are likely to be added to the blacklist. These new gambling laws have not been popular with the European Commission who criticised Lithuania for applying them to other EU countries.

The GCA posted a notice on its website which urges local gamblers to avoid unauthorized sites, going so far as to state that they “risk losing their contributions” if they do so and that GCA would not assist them in recover any lost money from unauthorized sites that are unscrupulous.

There are currently only three operators who have applied for, and been issued with, Lithuanian gambling licenses. These include Top Sport, Losimu Strategine Grupe which operates under the TonyBet brand and Orakulas. More operators are expected to start applying for local licenses as the GCA has made it clear that they will accept applications for licenses in 2016.
