Lithuanian poker laws [ENG]

Sveiki,

In my country poker laws is changing and I am considering moving to Lithuania to continue play poker full time.

I was wondering what status 888poker/pokerstars/partypoker ect. have with country? Can I officially play theses rooms? What is situation for online poker overall?

Thanks.

Hey mate, you can play on these sites without any major problems, however, with some internet providers you might need to change your DNS address in order to be able to open their page/download the software since the government is blocking some of the domain names. Pretty much all rooms accept Lithuanians except for Winamax and Microgaming network.

You are not correct about MPN. In general Microgaming network does not regulate which countries are accepted to play or not - this is up to a specific poker room which participates in the network. AFAIK we even have one licenced MPN Poker room - Olybet and pretty sure there are some unlicensed ones who accept Lithuanians (I have not researched that though). 

OP you must be from Latvia, right?  Finally our government is not most stupid one out of all Baltic coutries :D 

We have fairly similar law, but no personal responsibility and no strict enforcements. We play on "unlicensed" sites but still pay taxes lol. Tax rate is 15% flat or you can do it as individual business. Individual business is generally higher % getting lower the more you make (there are some caps at some point) but you are like officially employed so working on your pension/get other benefits.

Oh and I guess it's important to note that it has been like 3 years when we have this situation and I think it is highly unlikely for anything to change for another 1-2 years because parliament elections are coming in 2020.

Yes, I am from Latvia. We have only MGN network (olybet) licensed also.

We had basically same laws with no personal responsibility for playing in unlicensed rooms while domains getting banned and Tax of 21% after first 3k/year. (14% on 10k) for few years and now they changed them to "protect" players.

Now they made laws that it punishable with from 70 to 350 euro for playing in unlicensed rooms from Latvia territory. But I don't think it realistic to enforce and it there more then anything to scare people.
They have similar laws in Poland for long time and no one is actually getting punished.

@PKT0

Lithuanians can't sign up/play poker on Olybet.eu/com, they don't have a license for that. And for Olybet.lt it is not launched yet.

Sorry, my bad, I wasn't aware there's a difference between olybet.eu and olybet.lt :(

@Boston are you trying to do something as a poker/other community to change the situation or more like everyone goes its own way?

There is not really any active forums or online communities anything anymore, it died out when they started blocking domains/payments. Everyone seem is by themselves/small private groups.

OK, brāļi and māsas Latvians here is the deal: come to Klaipėda!

  • Nicely laid out port town, kinda like a mix of a summer resort and a normal town. In summer gets more crowded and fun, calm in other seasons. Almost no traffic jams (peak hours for driving are not for poker players anyway lol) small cosy old town with many places to dine and grab a drink but not too crazy. If you want to get crazy in summer you go to Palanga, other times poker action is too good, just grind :D!
  • Close to the border in case you want to do a short drive to the motherland to blame government together with locals. I think Liepāja might be a good place for that.
    *In summer you probably won't get to Liepāja because in order to do that you would need not to stop at Palanga which is hardly packed with hot girls wanting to have fun and once you stop you probably forget where you were going in the first place.
  • You still get to have a beach in case you Lived in RÄ«ga/Ventspils/Liepāja/another beach town. Just take a ferry from the old town and in 10 minutes you are at the beach. No dealing with busses/cars/parking problems.
  • My personal assistance  with whatever questions you have regarding settling in

Seems LV is to be more "against people" and more "with gambling business", which do everything that nobody could play online except on their sites..

      Atnaujinimai privačiame 40,000$ mėnesiniame leaderboarde. Nuo šiol jame nebebus užsieniečių žaidžiančių GGPokeryje.  Natural bus vienintelis GG kambarys kurio žaidėjai čia bus rodomi (jei jie bus susieti su mumis). Tad labai daug žaidėjų atkris ir bus žymiai mažesnė konkurencija. Sekantis leaderboardo rezultatų atnaujinimas neberodys tų žaidėjų.  Taip pat, buvo atnaujintas leaderboardo dizainas. Mobilioje versijoje dabar bus galima scrollinti į šoną jog pamatytumei visą informaciją.
