The gambling laws of Lithuania provide the state lottery company, Olifeja, the sole right to offer online gambling services in the country with the exception of sports betting. Online sports betting is offered by Topsport, Orakulas, and Omnibet. Further expansions into online gaming include a deal with Intralot that will offer more Internet gaming options with upgrades to Olifeja’s gaming platform. Lithuanians are allowed to gamble at any Lithuanian Internet casino under the supervision of the Regulatory Agency.
In 2011, the Lithuania Gambling Regulator brought a case against TEO, a telephone company controlling most of Lithuania’s high-speed DSL lines, to force TEO to block all international online casinos, bingo halls, sportsbooks, and poker rooms. TEO refused to implement the request, stating it would not participate in censorship. The Vilnius City Court ruled that TEO had no obligation to block websites hosted on networks they do not own or control. Past Lithuania Constitutional Court rulings state public information may be prohibited, censored, or restricted only in cases of national emergencies, and Internet casino websites do not pose a level of threat which can be viewed by a reasonable person as a national emergency. The Regulator immediately filed an appeal to Vilnius District Court.
As of October 2012, Lithuania does not have any specific regulation on the offering of online gambling services.
