The Lithuanian litas (plural: litai) is the official currency of Lithuania. It is recognized internationally with the abbreviation LTL and in text with the sign Lt. Although it is not a major international currency, the litas is used at a good number of online gaming sites. See this page for a list of Lithuanian litas casinos.
Overview of the Lithuanian Litas
The modern litas has been the official currency of Lithuania since 1993, after some government restructuring replaced the talonas, the country’s previous currency. The litas is scheduled to be replaced by the euro in 2014. Until then, some online casinos have decided to incorporate the litas into their cashier systems, while others have opted to let Lithuanian players play in the euro and exchange.
Exchanging the Lithuanian Litas
If you are a player in Lithuania who wants to play at a casino that doesn’t accept the litas, you may be able to use the euro or another major international currency. Some online casinos that are open to Lithuania allow players to exchange into the euro directly through the cashier. However, if this is not the case, you may be able to have an e-wallet do this trade for you. Check the available deposit options at your casino of choice for more information.
If you live outside of Lithuania and want to play at an online casino that uses the litas, check to see if your local currency is also accepted at the casino. Most online casinos that face Lithuania offer the euro as a second currency, and many offer other currencies. If your currency is not accepted, or you cannot use the euro, you may need to find another casino.
Banking with the Lithuanian Litas
Most online casinos that use the Lithuanian litas allow players to deposit through a number of methods. Among the most common ones are credit/debit cards, bank transfers, money transfer services, online e-wallets, and money transfer and voucher systems. Consider all of the options available to you before choosing just one: various fees and clearing times apply to most deposit methods.
Withdrawing Lithuanian litai from an online casino is generally easy. Cashout options vary from casino to casino, but generally include bank transfers, e-wallet withdrawals, and some independent money transfer services. We encourage players to look at all the information about each cashout method and choose the one that works best for their wallets and schedules. Casino support should be able to answer any questions about any method.
