Finnish Slot Machine Association Delays Opening Online Casino

The government-approved new online casino in Finland, designed and to be supplied by monopoly slot machine provider Raha-Automaattiyhdistys (RAY or “The Finnish Slot Machine Association”) and Playtech software, will have its grand opening delayed by at least one month after state officials have requested more changes.

It’s the second delay due to government demand for the Internet casino, which originally was to be opened in August. 

Some problems have been experienced by RAY in implementing the most state demands, those calling for limits on the amount of money allowed to be wagered by an individual player. For slots, blackjack and roulette games, the government has set limits of €500 per day per player while in competitive gaming, no limit will be set.

RAY has reported acquired a special bit of software which it touts as “the world’s most advanced responsibility tool in online gaming.” This software will monitor all players’ habits in the casino so as to observe any major and/or sudden increases in spending.

While players await the launch of RAY’s new gaming offering, certain to continue doing brisk business are online casinos in Finland open for business 24/7 and willing to serve customers in spite of essentially unenforceable Finnish gambling laws.
