It is quite complicated here.
Our government is highly corrupt and leading political forces receive high amount of money from people connected with gambling industry.
Therefor we have almost all foreign betting sites disabled (but it is easy to access them) and only bunch of locals available to bet at.
Now with this covid situation it is very convenient to shut down gambling sites, as government now helps all business in need. Basically, they shut down business and receive money from government... The system is a bit more complicated, but it is quite certain that it has been done to easily scarp money from Latvian budget.
