Finnplay enters Dutch market with Janshen-Hahnraths Group
JH-Group is already a strong player in the Dutch slot machine industry with over 60 years of expertise. They are best known for operating more than 30 Fair Play Casinos across the country.
Mr. Jaakko Soininen, Finnplay’s newly appointed Managing Director says, “This is a very exciting opportunity for Finnplay, and a strong new partnership for the Dutch market. Between JH-Group’s experience as a successful operator in the Netherlands and Finnplay’s technical and compliance expertise in online gaming, this is sure to be a very successful venture.”
Mr. Björn Fuchs, Chief Digital Officer from JH-Group says, “We were very pleased to be one of only 10 companies awarded the Dutch B2C licence. We selected Finnplay because of their excellent track record supporting top tier operators in Europe’s regulated markets. We look forward to expanding the reach of our strong and well-recognized brand online to a bigger and broader audience of players”.
The opening of the Dutch market marks the official launch of the operation, however the project itself began almost a year ago in late 2020 when JH-Group joined forces with Finnplay to prepare and submit their application. In all 28 companies applied for the license, but only 10 companies have succeeded in meeting the KSA requirements in this first round of licensing.
