For several months in Europe, major changes are made to gambling on the internet. From a national perspective, we look forward to the holiday period was the change for the casinos online and horse racing will be important. In Eastern Europe, Estonia and Lithuania have already modified their regulations.
Firstly, Estonia, from March 15, 2010 it is possible to play poker online on all available rooms. The internet providers are required to block over 150 poker rooms to allow for a single room to provide this game to poker players. The only room in question is “Estonian Olympic Casino” which has the authorization to accommodate customers in Estonia. Other poker sites does not respect the rules rely up by the government, especially compared to the minimum age to play, that is to say 21 years.
Many elements will be created to bypass any ISP is made. Some internet providers have decided not to implement this blocking their penalties will be awarded.
Unlike Lithuania, which has a major asset for poker, since it will become a sport. Go back a few days ago, more precisely March 20. The local sports ministry attributed the “stamp” of sport in Poker. Lithuania is a country full development after its entry into Europe, legislation against poker is still very low. Poker sites online have no official status and land-based casinos are located there only seven years.
The large gap between the Estonian and Lithuanian legislation may create conflicts between the two governments. Therefore, Estonia will attempt to resolve the problem by any means, yet unknown.
The first tournament poker Lithuania will take place on 24,25 and April 26. It is already regarded as the greatest tournament in place by a country of Eastern Europe.
