Some of the gambling websites banned by Latvia are powerjackpot.com, powerjackpotcasino.com, classicjackpot.com, 365sport365.com, royalvegascasino.com, pokerstars.net, fulltiltpoker.net, 1bet.com, pantaloo.com, tonybet.com, slotsmillion.com, gunsbet.com.

Moreover, the country’s New Conservative Party’s (JKP) has introduced a new initiative that intends to ban gambling halls in Latvia, except in luxury-class hotels. While the plan features a five-year transition period, it recommends that the amendment should be adopted with immediate effect.
