Finland’s Paf renews long-standing Kambi sportsbook partnership

Veikkaus unveils new live casino offering supported by Playtech

Gambling tech provider Playtech has been selected as the exclusive live casino partner for Finland’s state-owned monopoly operator Veikkaus

Playtech’s winning tender builds on the London Stock Exchange-listed company’s previous partnership with Veikkaus, spanning across online casino, online poker, retail VLT machines, as well as a casino management system, which now also includes live casino games. 

The extension clause is valid for six years from the date of singing and holds the option for a renewal.

Fredrik Sylvander, Commercial Director at Playtech, commented: “We are thrilled to be selected as Veikkaus’ partner for live casino games, and this long-term partnership is a testament to the strength of our live product and further solidifies our position as a leading supplier in the Nordic region. 

“We are excited to support Veikkaus in their first launch of live casino games, providing Finnish players with an exceptional gaming experience. 

“Together, we will leverage our expertise and market knowledge to deliver a tailored live offering that meets the needs of the Finnish market and exceeds the expectations of Veikkaus’ customers.”

The agreement will allow Veikkaus to offer its Nordic customer base the full Playtech live casino games stack, as well as content from a brand new live Veikkaus studio that will launch with the support of Playtech. It will feature Finnish-speaking dealers offering a range of blackjack and roulette tables. 

Riikka Seppänen, VP iCasino at Veikkaus, added: “We are delighted to collaborate with Playtech as our partner for live casino games, following a comprehensive public procurement process. This strategic framework agreement marks an important milestone for Veikkaus as we expand our product portfolio to include live casino games for the first time. 

“We have been and continue to work diligently alongside Finnish authorities and regulators to ensure a robust regulatory framework is in place. With Playtech’s network of live games and their support in setting up our dedicated Veikkaus-branded studio, we are excited to offer our Finnish players an immersive and authentic gaming experience. 

“This partnership with Playtech reflects our commitment to providing top-quality entertainment to our valued customers.”
