The regulator is the principal governing organization in Latvia when it comes to all forms of gambling and lotteries. This regulatory organization is in charge of all gambling-related legislation and regulations. There are some of the top casinos in the country with IAUI licenses. Whereas the control department ensures that all kinds of gambling are legal, the government's legal department is in charge of granting licenses to operators. Those who are 18 or older can play in live casinos, but only if the live casino has been approved by the Latvian government.
When the Latvian government passed the law and established the Lotteries and Gambling Supervision Inspection, it was initially primarily entrusted with giving operating licenses to land-based casinos, which were legalized in 1998. As a result, all operators can apply for the necessary licenses to lawfully operate in the country. To become fully lawful and licensed, live casinos must request the same operating license as land-based casinos and go through the same rigorous process. If a live casino fails to pass the test, it will be prohibited from operating in the country.
