Latvia is joining a growing number of European countries on the blacklist bandwagon after the Latvia Lotteries and Gambling Supervision Inspection (IAUI) brought the hammer down on a handful of gambling websites.
The European nation published an online gambling blacklist including prominent sites like Bwin.com, Pokerstars.eu, Bet365.com, 888.com, FulltiltPoker.eu, Betfair.com, Williamhill.com, Unibet.net, Betway.com,Triobet.com, Betsafe.com, 888games.com, 888play.com, Expekt.com, Spinpalace.com, Casino.com, Betsson.com and Casinoeuro.com.
Overall, 20 online gambling domains were published following amendments to the country’s Electronic Communications Law, which took effect on August 1.
Sports betting solutions provider SBTech has signed a multi-year deal with The Gaming Platform (TGP) that will see TGP Europe switch providers from OpenBet.
SBTech will also begin servicing TGP Europe’s white label operations, including Wilsonbet.com, 138.com, and Setenabet.com. These sites will now enjoy SBTech’s expansive sports betting solution platform, featuring more than 12,000 live events per month covering more than 30 different sports.
TGP Europe is owned by TGP Holdings, which is a part of the Sun City Group. Sun City is considered the largest provider of live dealer casinos in Asia, meaning SBTech will get a chance to expand its business into the other markets.
“TGP Europe switching from their current platform provided by OpenBet to our turnkey sports betting solution is further testament to the quality and performance of our products and the overall value of our service,” said SBTech CEO Itai Zak. “We’re looking forward to taking TGP Europe’s group of partners to the next level in online sports betting and gaming entertainment.”
TGP Europe Managing Director Steve Templeman praised SBTech’s experience in the industry. “We are proud to partner with them and expect the deal to have a positive impact on our business and our clients’ business.”
