Mobile Casinos in Finland
Since all land-based and online gambling is monopolized in Finland, the state-run companies that cover casino gaming in the country, are allowed to offer mobile casino services. As of 2017, RAY, Fintoto and Veikkaus all offer mobile versions of the games they administer.
Finland, as is customary for the Nordic countries, is technologically advanced. Home to Nokia and a pioneer in 3G, the country is no stranger to innovation and mobile telephony. Indeed, there are around 3 mobile phones for every 2 Finns.
The country’s three main network operators, Sonera, Elisa and DNA each have more or less around a third of the subscribers. About 4 of 10 mobile users have a smartphone. Android is not king in Finland, but essentially shares first place with the Windows Phone, making two-thirds of smartphone users happy. This leaves around 15% Finns who carry the iPhone and almost 2 in 10 who rely on something totally different.
The limited domestic online offering and an enthusiasm for gambling, complemented by a good mobile infrastructure has resulted in large volumes of Finnish traffic at international mobile casinos.
