Enlabs found to have broken Lithuanian bonus ban

Enlabs subsidiary UAB Baltic Bet has broken the country's rules on gambling promotion, according to Lithuania's Gambling Supervisory Authority, but the regulator opted not to apply sanctions.

The breach in question concerns Baltic Bet running a remote promotion on its Optibet Blackjack product promising players a chance to increase their winnings.

This violates the gambling promotions ban introduced into the country earlier this year,  which prohibits “promotion of gambling in any form and by any means, dissemination of information or persuasion”.

The Gambling Supervisory Authority decided against sanctioning the operator, deeming the offence to be insignificant.

A statement from the Gambling Supervisory Authority said: “The violations committed by UAB Baltic Bet were insignificant and did not cause material damage to the interests protected by law.

“In accordance with the criteria of fairness and reasonableness, it was decided not to apply sanctions to UAB Baltic Bet. UAB Baltic Bet has been informed that for repeated violations committed within one year, the appropriate sanctions will be applied.”

Baltic Bet has already been fined by the regulator earlier this month after it was found guilty of  “organising gambling outside of gambling regulations”.
