The Finnish gaming operations will be shouldered entirely by a single company, as the activities of the current three operators – Fintoto, Finland’s Slot Machine Association RAY, and Veikkaus – merge in 2017.
The Funding Centre for Social Welfare and Health Organisations (STEA) manages the funding granted for projects which are non-profit by nature and promote health and wellbeing, from the gaming revenue of Veikkaus Oy.
Ca. 3.3% of Finns suffer from problem gambling (National Institute for Health and Welfare 2015).
As a gaming operator, it is our responsibility to offer our customers entertaining games and to make sure that the problems caused by gambling are mitigated.
