Lithuanian Gambling Regulator Finds Betsafe in Violation of Gambling Regulations

Betsafe, a sports betting and iGaming operator owned by Betsson, has been found to have violated Lithuania’s gambling regulations by the Lithuanian Gambling Supervision Service.

Minor violation

The violation occurred when Betsafe offered Ezugi’s Sic Bo, a live dealer solution, on its platform without the necessary certification and paid out winnings from the game. Despite the infractions, the regulator categorized them as “minor violations” and chose not to impose any penalties on the operator.

The decision was based on several factors, including Betsafe’s cooperation during the investigation, immediate cessation of the offending activity upon notification, and no previous penalties for similar breaches. Additionally, the regulator noted that the violations didn’t result in substantial harm to players, and the operator did not profit from the transgressions.

Lithuanian regulator fines other betting operators

In contrast, the Lithuanian Gambling Supervision Service has recently imposed financial penalties on other betting operators for various violations of the country’s gambling legislation. However, in Betsafe’s case, the regulator considered the violations as “insignificant” and decided not to levy any fines.
