Six percent of Latvians report gambling problem

According to a report from the Latvian Health Ministry, approximately 70,000 (6%) Latvians have a gambling problem. Around 1.3% were reported to experience serious gambling dependence. In response to growing concerns, the ‘Register of Self-Withdrawn Persons’ system was implemented in Latvia earlier this year. The system enables gambling operators to deny registered gamblers access to gaming rooms.
