If you are an online gaming enthusiast, then Finland is a haven. It is legalised. A variety of playing options are provided to its residents on online Casinos. Looking back Finland offered online gambling as a form of entertainment to its residents and tourists way back in the year 1996. There are more than 200 online casinos entirely regulated by two organisations namely RAY and PAF. These online 200 plus casinos are supported by technologies provided by Microgaming, NetEnt, Betsoft Gaming, Playtech, etc., just to name a few. And this number is growing day by day. Finnish legal framework being a little complicated, these services are provided only the operators backed by the state.
Finland being a part of the European Union has always claimed that their gambling Network is a non-profit network and supports social development in the state. This subject has been a little controversial as the European Union has always been in a disapproval mode when it comes to gambling monopolies by its member states. Nevertheless, the Government has been issuing licences to both web based and land based service providers. Finland has faced a lot of pressure from the EU, but it has always persisted on the fact that gambling is a charitable and never opened up the market.
Finnish residents have taken to gambling as an attractive way of entertainment, and online gambling has become one of the great pastimes of Finland. Finland is slowly catching up as a tourism destination for gambling and online games in Europe.
