The Ezugi games are available to play twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
OlyBet recognizes that this partnership strengthens its position as the leading multi-channel gaming operator across the Baltics.

Olybet Operates Across the Baltics and Other European Countries
OlyBet started out as Olympic-Online, and it is owned and operated by OB Holding 1. Established in 2010, they have a commitment to providing a fun and safe online gambling experience for their customers. They host a wide variety of leading casino, sports betting, and poker platforms, including Microgaming, Playtech, Net Entertainment, Bet Construct, and iForium. Last week they announced a tie-up with Playson, that will see them offer a new range of popular slot titles.
As well as being licensed in the Baltic countries of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, they are also authorized to operate in Slovakia, Italy, and Malta. In addition to the OlyBet online platform, OB Holdings also have bricks and mortar casinos, including a mega-casino in the Latvian capital. The group has a total of fifty-two casinos in Latvia, twenty-three in Estonia, and seventeen in Lithuania.
They are no strangers to what people going to a casino want from a live dealer experience. They also have fourteen casinos in Italy, four in Slovakia, and one in Malta. Across the six countries, OlyBet employs over two thousand people.
Olybet Sponsors of Sports Teams and Leagues
As well as operating online and on the ground casinos, OlyBet is involved in sports sponsorship in the Baltic countries. They are sponsors of the Lithuanian basketball
team Žalgiris Kaunas, and have been since 2015. They sponsor the national Latvian basketball squad. In addition, they are the official sports betting partner of the National Hockey League in the region, and they are the betting partner of the National Basketball Association.
Last year they branched out and extended sponsorship arrangements into a European country outside the Baltic region. They signed a partnership agreement with ACF Fiorentina. The deal made them the Seria A team’s official betting partner in the region. Part of the deal meant that they got additional branding and exposure at the team’s Artemio Franchi Stadium
Ezugi Continues to Evolve and Add New Games
Ezugi is not a company to rest on its laurels. Its games titles include Keeno, Bet on Numbers, Live Roulette, and Auto Roulette, as well as Blackjack and Teen Patti. It is constantly evolving and finding new game variations to offer to gamblers. In April, it launched a new Sic Bo variant called Ultimate Sic Bo. The game offers new and exciting features. There are now multipliers of up to one thousand times. The new game will be a very attractive option for thrill-seekers gamblers.
For anyone unfamiliar with the game of Sic Bo, the aim is to predict the outcome of three rolls of the dice correctly. While the gameplay is simple, it provides a wide range of exciting betting options to engage players. In addition, the new game, Ultimate Sic Bo, has an easy-to-use interface which makes playing it even simpler without detracting from the entertainment.
“Multipliers give player’s the opportunity to maximize their winnings and they have the added benefit of putting a unique twist to any game. This kind of feature can be seen as a key step for us to provide players with some of the best live-casino games and experiences.”– Pang Goh, Business Development Director, Ezugi, Ezugi website
Importance of iGaming to Baltic Economies
While the populations of the Baltic companies may be small, the importance of iGaming to these countries is not insignificant. They have comparatively relaxed attitudes towards gambling which has helped the industry flourish in the region. The figures for 2020 show that Estonia has a Gross Gambling Revenue (GGR) of €78.13 million, Latvia €307 million, and Lithuania €112.6 million. These figures were all on an upwards trajectory from the previous years.
