OpenBet to Supply Technology for Veikkaus Sportsbook Platform

Listen to this news articleLISTEN TO THIS ARTICLE:

OpenBet, the sports betting and content provider to the gaming industry, has announced a partnership with Veikkaus, the state-owned gambling operator of the government in Finland. The agreement is a four-year deal as the regulator in Finland looks to change the gambling structure in the country.

The Finnish government has been looking at other national gambling frameworks besides its current state-controlled monopoly. Finland is one of the few gambling markets that is controlled by a government entity, in this case, Veikkaus. A recent report into the options facing Finland as it tries to move to another gambling model suggested allowing private gambling operators to enter the country's sports betting and online gaming markets.

The partnership between Veikkaus and OpenBet is the start of the process of introducing licensed gaming operators into the gambling sector in the Finnish jurisdiction.

Our partnership with Veikkaus demonstrates our ambition as pioneers in regulating markets. By integrating our innovative technology and tailored solutions, we are not just entering Finland, we're transforming its sports betting landscape. It's a monumental chapter for OpenBet and we look forward to setting an unparalleled benchmark with Veikkaus.
