ESSA signs betting integrity deal Lithuanian gaming regulator

Lithuania’s gambling regulator the Gaming Control Authority (GCA) has agreed an information sharing agreement with the betting industry’s integrity body ESSA, with the aim of guarding against betting-related corruption.

The GCA, which operates under the Ministry of Finance, and ESSA will exchange information concerning any suspicious betting identified in ESSA members’ regulated markets that falls within the Lithuanian regulator’s operational remit.

This latest agreement follows on from existing partnerships with the UK Gambling Commission, France's ARJEL, the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, and the Gibraltar Gambling Commission.

Khalid Ali, secretary general of ESSA, commented: “This is another very positive development in the fight against betting related corruption. The Lithuanian Gaming Control Authority has shown a great willingness and desire to cooperate with ESSA and its responsible regulated operators.

“We have the same objectives and I hope that others will join us to prevent fixers from corrupting sport, defrauding betting operators and cheating consumers.”

Virginijus Dauksys, director of the Lithuanian Gaming Control Authority, added: “One of the core goals of the Lithuanian Gaming Control Authority is to protect the interests and rights of players and operators.

“Match-fixing and betting related corruption presents a clear threat to meeting that objective and one which we are determined to tackle. We recognise the value in working with a committed partner such as ESSA to help us to deliver on that aim and to meeting a common danger with a united approach.”
