Online casinos in Latvia

Legal status of online casinos in Latvia: legal since 2006, operators require a licence

 

Online casino gambling is legal and regulated in Latvia since 20061. Online casino gambling is in the category of interactive gambling which also includes games of chance conducted via radio, television and mobile phones.

All online casino operators are required to obtain a local casinos licence in order to be able to offer their services legally within the country, to residents of Latvia. Interactive gambling licences are issued by The Lotteries and Gambling Supervision Inspection of Latvia (see below, in the Latvia online casinos licensing section), which also supervises land-based gambling.

Unlicensed online casinos are blocked by the internet service providers.

Originally, the online casino regulation in Latvia was quite lax. While online casinos had to be licensed, unlicensed international casinos were also freely available. However, in 2014, Latvia made the decision to copy the methods of the neighbouring Estonia and create a blacklist for unlicensed sites2, and the unlicensed gambling paltforms on this ever growing list are blocked ever since.

For a long time individual players were not prosecuted for playing on unlicensed online casino sites. Many people realized that it’s very easy to circumvent the ban by using VPN or IPmasks. Some players might have even done it unintentionally (VPN service running in the background and you forgot it).

However, since 2020 April financial institutions and internet service providers (ISPs) will forward the names of Latvian citizens who attempt to visit and initiate finical transactions with unauthorized gambling sites to the authorities. Individuals caught will be charged an “administrative fine” of up to €350 per incident (yes, every time you visited an online casino and/or per transaction, it can easily add up).

If you won any money you could face additional fines and back taxes for avoiding taxation on your winnings (because these unlicensed online casinos don’t pay any taxes in Latvia, you would have to pay taxes on your winnings and 99% of Latvians don’t pay taxes on their winnings from unlicensed online gambling sites).

UPDATE COVID 19: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic online gambling activities (including online casino gambling) were banned in 2020. This means that even the few licensed online casinos could not accept players from Latvia.

The government’s official narrative is that “we are only trying to protect the citizens from spending their money on gambling in such a tumultuous time of rising unemployment and global pandemic”.

UPDATE 2021: The online gambling ban is over in Latvia, Latvian citizens can freely play online once again.

By scrolling below, you can find a list of online casinos, which accept Latvia players.

 

Can tourists play online while visiting Latvia?

Yes, tourist, non-citizen expats (or illegal migrants) can play online freely while enjoying their stay in the country.

 

Online casino licensing and regulatory body of Latvia:

The Latvian Lotteries and Gambling Supervisory Inspection is in charge of regulating online gambling in Latvia. If you wish to set up an online casino in the country, you have to contact them. Their website is available in English as well.

The licencing procedure falls under the jurisdiction of the Legal Department (consist of the Licensing Division and the Financial Analysis Division).

You can find a list of the licensed companies here. There around 10 online casino companies licensed in Latvia currently, although not all of them have online platforms yet.

The licensing authority regulates quite a few aspects of online casino gambling, including setting a minimum RTP for the various games (which is a really unusual, not many countries do this). Operators need to re-register with The Lotteries and Gambling Supervision Inspection every year.

Land-based casinos in Latvia

Legal status of brick & mortar casinos in Latvia: legal since 1998, operators require a licence, slot halls are also legal

 

Land-based casinos are officially legal in Latvia since 1998, according to the Law on Gambling and Lotteries1 (and its many amendments), which is the main piece of the gambling legislation.

Casinos actually first appeared in the country after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991 (and during the communist regime casinos were illegal). These casinos were not specifically regulated for about 7 years until 1998.

The casino gambling laws of Latvia loosely regulate the types of games that may be offered in licensed casino venues, the minimum RTP (return to player, definition can be found here, unusual, this is not regulated in most countries).

Another peculiar facet of the Latvian casino laws is that the minimum number of gaming tables is also set by law: 10 in casinos located in the capital, Riga, and 5 in establishments in the countryside. This is also not regulated in most countries.

Slot halls (gaming establishments, which only contain gaming machines, no card games, no live dealer tables) are also legal. In fact, the Latvian gambling sector is dominated by them, there are at least 130 of these venues, which means they outnumber casino by more than 20 to 1, and there are 20x more gaming machines in slot halls than in the casino combined.

/Comment: Most slot venues are not bigger than just a pub with gaming machines, but some are the size of regular casinos. Many have bingo as well, and function as bingo halls too.

In most of Europe slot halls are outlawed already, because it has been proven that they contribute much more to problem gambling and addiction than the real, big, strictly regulated casinos, which have more of middle class and above target audience with plenty of tourists, while slot halls are usually frequented by lower class people and barely any tourists visit them./

There are only 5 real brick & mortar casino in Latvia (you can see the list below, 4 of them are located in the capital Riga).

All casinos, gambling halls and bingo halls need to obtain a gambling licence from the Lotteries and Gambling Supervision Inspection (see below, in the casino licensing section).

The Olympic group and Admiral casinos (a subsidiary of Austrian gambling giant Novomatic) dominate the Latvian casino sector, and they own most of the casinos and slot halls.

Most of the gaming venues are located in Riga, the capital of Latvia, including the largest casino of the country, the Royal Casino Spa & Resort Hotel.

You can find all the currently operating brick and mortar casinos in the list below.

 

Can locals visit the casinos in Latvia?

Yes, both locals and tourists can visit the casinos in Latvia.

 

Casino licensing and regulatory body of Latvia:

This is a picture of Olympic Casino Voodoo In Riga, Latvia. This is the second biggest casino of Latvia currently. This is the first casino on the list of all the casinos in the Republic of Latvia , you can find the other gambling establishments on the list under this one. Right next to the casino is a description of the place, where you can read more info about this establishment.

Olympic Casino Voodoo

Olympic Voodoo Casino, address: Elizabetes iela 55, Centra rajons, Rīga, LV-1010

This is the second biggest casino of Latvia, but by European and international standards it’s still only a small casino. It’s located in Riga, the capital of Latvia, and it is the flagship casino of the Olympic Casinos Latvia (a subsidiary of Olympic Entertainment Group, which is owned by the Estonian company Odyssey Europe), which is the leading casino operator in Latvia (and the parent company is the leading casino operator in the Baltic countries).

Like all Olympic casinos Voodoo is also 21+ and requires a passport or ID to enter (passport for tourist or EU ID).

Their website is available in English.

 

Games: around 95 gaming machines (slot machines and video poker machines) and around 16 tables (American Roulette, black jack, Oasis Poker, Texas Hold’em Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold’em, Russian Poker*, Oasis Poker**)

They have a poker section as well with cash games and tournaments daily (according to the official website, but according to customer reviews online they have poker events weekly at best, and none at all during the coronavirus pandemic, it’s not an active poker scene). You can find the tournament schedule online here.

They also have a sports betting section as well, with OlyBet kiosks, it is advertised on their official website as ” the only betting point in all of Riga”, which is not true, Shangri La Casino (see below) and Olympic Casino at Grand Hotel Kempinski Riga both have a sports bar.

Video of Olympic Voodoo Casino:

Sadly there are no recent videos of the venue online. Even though this virtual tour is fantastic, it is 10+ years old, but this is the best I could find.

If you know of a more recent video, then please drop a link to it in the comments section. Thank you.

 

Opening hours:

The casino is usually open 24/7

UPDATE COVID-19: open, but it’s only open from 8:00 – 21: 00 currently, at the time of writing, not known for how long

Dress code:

No dress code officially, there aren’t any mentioned on the official website. However, according to visitestonia.com and customer reviews online it’s smart casual. I recommend smart casual too, it’s probably just an oversight, they likely just forgot to put it on the official website.

Entrance fee: no entrance fee

Meta review analysis: the casino gets good reviews, 4/5, no major problems

 

21+ , ID, and passport for tourists, is needed to enter.

2., Kazino 777
This a picture of Kazino 777, the Grecinieku venue in Riga. There is another gambling establishment with the name Kazino 777, in Elizabetes, Riga, which is a slot hall owned by the same company. You can read more about this casino to the right of the picture.

Kazino 777 – Grecinieku

Kazino 777, address: Grēcinieku iela 30, Centra rajons, Rīga, LV-1050

Casino 777 has two locations in Riga, the Grecinieku is the bigger one, with more casino games and actual tables, the other is Casino 777 Elizabetes a much smaller slot hall, which only has gaming machines.

The casino has no slots, uniquely in all of Latvia, only casino games and card games.

/Comment: This is actually not that unusual in Europe, many upscale (or want to appear upscale) casinos do this, because slots are seen as lower class in the world of gambling, and high rollers usually prefer tables and card games (most high rollers are men, aged 50+, they like poker, table games and sports betting)./

There are 9 poker tables in a separate poker section for the poker players (NL Texas Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha, buy ins usually at €10-€15). There are 18 tables of roulette, blackjack and hold’em poker variations. The exact types of games and amount of each are not known.

Sadly, they no longer have a website or  any sort of web presence, they turned their website into an online casinos that has no info about the real casino anymore. No info on the entrance fee or dress code, or age requirement.

 

Games: There are no slot machines and there are around 18 tables of roulette, blackjack and hold’em poker variations. The exact types of games and amount of each are not known. If you know please drop a comment.

There are 9 poker tables in a separate poker room for the poker players (NL Texas Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha, buy ins usually at €10-€15).

SL Casino Riga is part of the Shangri La casinos group. This is the only SL casino in Latvia, and it is located in the Grand Hotel Kempinski in the very center of the Latvian capital, opposite the National Opera House.

This is the casino on the picture at the top of the page.

 

Games: around 30 gaming machines (slot machines and video poker machines, mostly very old machines 10+ years) and around 10 tables (American Roulette, black jack, Caribbean Poker, Texas Hold’em, punto banco, Russian Poker, Oasis Poker)

Meta review analysis: the casino gets okay reviews, 3.5/5, no major problems, but some people mention staff that looks “joyless, overworked and under paid”, rude staff, expensive for what it is, and machines are old, they often break down, very crowded during peak hours

4., Royal Casino Spa & Hotel
This is a picture of the building of Royal Casino Spa & Hotel. This is the fourth casino in this list of the 5 casinos of Latvia. The picture depicts the casinos Royal Casino Spa & Hotel in Latvia. You can read more about this venue to the right of the picture.

Royal Casino Spa & Hotel

Royal Casino Spa & Resort Hotel, address: Tērbatas iela 73, Centra rajons, Rīga, LV-1001

Royal casino is the casino section of a large, 5 star hotel and spa complex, which is in operation since 2000. It is the biggest and best looking casino in all of Latvia (watch the video below, it is also the best rated, according to online reviews of the visitors).

UPDATE: For a long they didn’t have any sort of online presence, and finding any information about them was next to impossible. But luckily recently they launched their own, very good looking, professional website, which is available in English as well. It turns out all the info that was out there about the casino was blatantly false. I have updated this listing accordingly with the correct info.

 

Games: around 39 gaming machines (slot machines and video poker machines, mostly very old machines 10+ years) and around 10 tables (European Roulette, black jack, various poker, craps – the only dice game table in all of Latvia)

They also have a poker section with an unknown number of poker tables, and the online tournament schedule can be seen online here. Some of the tournaments are quite big, with many players, and big prizes. E.g.: in 2011 a Russian Poker Series tournament took place, 121 players took part in it, and a winner turned out to be a Russian, Sergey Ilyin, who won the prize, 65 324 €, which is a pretty big amount for Latvia.

Opening hours: 24/7, however, tables are not 24/7, but no table games schedule can be found online

UPDATE COVID-19: open

Dress code: no dress code officially, none mentioned on the website, but I would recommend smart casual, their nightclub has a smart casual dress code, most likely the casino is the same

Entrance fee: no entrance fee

Meta review analysis: the casino gets really good reviews, 4.5/5, this is the best rated casino in Latvia

 

18+ , ID, and passport for tourists, is needed to enter.

Bitcoin casinos in Latvia

Legal status: legal since 1998, operators require a licence

 

Bitcoin is considered a currency* and it is legal and taxable in Latvia. In theory the licensed online casinos and land-based casino could accept it. If you know of any please drop a comment in the comment section below.

However, none of the land-based venues accept virtual currencies, only a few of the online platforms do accept them (you can see these below).

 

*Source: Bitcoin.com – Latvia Recognizes Cryptocurrencies in Order to Tax Them

 

Other forms of online gambling in Latvia

In accordance with the Gambling and Lotteries law other forms of online gambling are also legal. Actually, all online gambling is covered by the category of interactive gambling, and are permitted with an interactive gambling license.

The only exception is online lottery, which is the monopoly of Latvijas Loto.

The Latvian gambling law does not differentiate between games of pure luck and games of chance and skill, which means that online poker is also included in the interactive gambling category.

Online sports betting sites, or as the gambling act refers to them, totalizators, are also legal and regulated in Latvia. There are 7 licensed online sports betting sites in the country, both local alternatives and big international companies with a local licence.

The Olympic Entertainment group which is very prevalent in land-based gambling in Latvia received an online sports betting licence too in 2013, which means the popular OlyBet (sports betting kiosks in Olympic casinos) is now freely available in the country, online as well (+ the betting points at most Olympic casinos still in operation).

Gamble responsibly,
SimonTheSorcerer

Thank you for visiting:
This is a selfie of the author and owner of Simon's Casino Gambling Blog, me, Simon András Péter, a.k.a. by the internet pseudonym SimonTheSorcerer, owner of Simon's Online Marketing Kft. This is the homepage of my online casino gambling blog, you can see what's on the website, the links to all the different sections of the website.

That's me, Simon, thank you for visiting.

Don't worry, this is not an ad! ;) Just wanted to make sure to tell you that I'm glad you visited this gambling blog. I'm Simon, the only author and the man behind this blog (if you are interested, my unusual life story can be found on the homepage, under the "About me" dropdown section).
I'm an independent gambling blogger since 2012. In this sector dominated by huge media companies, casino operators and online marketing networks, who can easily spend $ millions on their online gambling blogs, it's not easy for an independent nobody like me to survive. It took me about 6 years, working my ass off, to even have a chance to be noticed by visitors like you. I'm lucky enough that for a few years now, I make enough money to be able to do this full time (before that, I had part-time jobs, ghost writing gigs, online marketing this and that).
Now I can finally do this full time, thanks to visitors like you! And it means a lot! If you are interested, please bookmark this site (no social media profiles, I no longer have any, but please feel free to share anything on any social media networks, if you still use them). I don't have any money to advertise, and if you have a personal blog, any social media profile, please mention my gambling blog and link back to it. This the only way for a small website like this to grow. Thank you!

Logo of Kiva.org. You can read about my non-profit activity right next to the picture.
Charity: As a way to help others, to give back, I sometimes donate to Kiva. If you click on the ads on the website, I make some money. And in a good month, if I make more than my expenses, I donate to people and projects on Kiva.
Kiva helps young entrepreneurs in developing countries, which is an issue close to my heart for obvious reasons. If you have the means, please sign up with the revolutionary non-profit company Kiva.org and help people lift themselves out of poverty, through hard-work, and an initial investment (non-profit loan). These non-profit loans encourage entrepreneurship and hard work instead of creating a dependent class that is afraid to get a job, or start a business (because if they did, they would no longer get support and free money, disincentivezing hard work and entrepreneurship). This is the right way to fight poverty in developing countries (or anywhere else really), and if this is something you are interested in, and if you would like to know more, or to help out, please check out Kiva.org here. Thank you!
By being on this site, you agree to terms and conditions, and privacy policy. You must be at least 18, and if you are a gambling addict, or a citizen of Hungary, please leave the site.
