Pragmatic Play, a content provider in the iGaming industry, has entered into a significant partnership with Veikkaus Oy, the state-owned lottery, casino, and betting operator in Finland.
Under this collaboration, players in Finland will have access to a selection of Pragmatic Play’s top slot games, including the highly acclaimed titles such as Sugar Rush™, Gates of Olympus™, Big Bass Bonanza™, and The Dog House Megaways™.
This marks Pragmatic Play’s first partnership in Finland, further solidifying its presence in the European market. The company has recently made significant deals with Merkur Sports and Swiss Casinos, enhancing its reach across the region.
Veikkaus, established in 2017 through the merger of Fintoto, Finland’s Slot Machine Association (RAY), and Veikkaus, is the exclusive operator of gambling games in Finland. As a responsible gaming company, Veikkaus aims to provide a secure and controlled gambling environment, protecting players and preventing fraudulent activities.
Veikkaus offers a wide range of gambling options, including lottery, casino, and sports betting. All revenue generated by Veikkaus contributes to the welfare of Finnish society, supporting various fields such as culture, sports, science, youth work, social welfare, health, and the equine industry.
The partnership between Veikkaus and Pragmatic Play will enrich the gaming experience for Finnish players, combining Veikkaus’ extensive reach with Pragmatic Play’s popular and engaging slot games.
Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: “We’re delighted to have signed with Veikkaus to bring a selection of iconic Pragmatic Play slots to players in Finland for the first time.
