Easit gets Latvian license

Easit, part of the Czech Republic-based Synot group, has been awarded a license to offer online gaming in Latvia.

Easit, which is already a supplier of online games to Tipos, the Slovakian lottery, will be able to offer casino and poker games in the Eastern European country from January 1, 2014.

The country is also due to switch to the Euro currency on New Year’s Day.

“We are very happy about the decision of the Latvian authorities to licence our company,” Synot’s international sales manager, Antonin Slavik, said.

“Synot has a long-term history in Latvia with its partner company SIA Joker, and this is another important part of our portfolio.”
