TonyBet who also holds licenses for Denmark and the UK was founded by Antanas Guoga aka Tony G, Businessman, Lithuanian elected member of the European Parliament and also a well known poker player. TonyBet is one of two gambling operators that is allowed to service the Lithuanian market. They also operate 20 betting shops along with a licensed website providing poker, sportsbook and online casino there.

CEO and President of Betsson AB Ulrik Bengtsson stated: “We see strong synergies in this acquisition, through migration of the operator to Betsson’s technical platform, and development of the casino offering.”

He went on to say: “This acquisition is a good strategic fit for Betsson Group as Betsson’s ambition is to increase revenue from locally regulated markets. We have now consolidated our presence in the Baltic region by ensuring local licenses in all three markets, and continue to pursue growth across Europe, organically and through acquisition”
