In review: licensing and taxation of gambling activities in Latvia

Latvia gained full independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. In 1998, the government established the Lotteries and Gambling Supervisory Authority. The same set of gambling laws remained in place for several years. Then in 2005, Latvia launched the Gabbling and Lottery Law. This created a new framework for both land-based and online gambling companies to legally operate inside the country. Gifting fees and taxes are regulated by separate laws. Remote and land based gambling is defined as interactive gambling. The Authority implements state policy in the organisation of the gambling and lotterie industry.
