The Lotteries and Gambling Supervisory Inspection, also known as the IAUI, is the regulatory body in charge of supervising gambling establishments in the country of Latvia. As of now, the country has issued a new support service for those who may be struggling with gambling-related disorders. The support comes in the form of professional psychological help, funded by the state itself.

These will come in the form of sessions where players can have in-depth discussions with the psychologists to gain the help they need to combat these potential afflictions. Sessions will be running from 8:30 to 17:00 local time. There will also be no charge for these sessions, letting players be given free help when they need it. The individual who will be running these sessions will be Magdaléna Pranaite, a certified professional in the field of psychological sciences and therapy in Latvia.

Pranaite issued a statement regarding this new service. She said: “When gambling becomes addictive, not only the player suffers, but also people close to them and they need the help of their whole family”. However, providing the service is not enough. It’s important to encourage the players to take the first step in gaining the help that they need as they must willfully consent to the sessions.

Any player can contact the IAUI about this service in order to gain more information or to gain more assurance as to its validity.

Last May, the gambling revenues managed to gain a profit of up to 77.5 million Euros, as released in the official reports. Gaming machines are perhaps the most popular in Latvia, so it is the gamblers from these types of entertainment where the service will be aiming their help towards.
