Customers’ bets and winnings became the major reason why it was obliged to pay penalty. The operator is accused of putting restrictions on stakes as well as players’ winnings. It is a direct violation of the gambling law because the Lithuanian regulator demands clear rules for casino users and prohibits any limits without a reasonable basis.
