The reputable gambling affiliate platform Veikkaajat announced about establishing its certification programme for online casinos. Overall, the platform is aimed to provide players with only safe and secure online gambling sites, and this certificate will facilitate the reviewing processes. This is excellent news for players who are looking to play in reputable and trustworthy online gambling platforms! 


First Step: Casino Reviews 

When it comes to the fairness of both the games and casinos, Veikkaajat takes it seriously. It all starts with testing the casino in the best way possible, wading through its terms and fine print to get the most accurate picture possible of the casino’s operations.

Casino Bonuses are always evaluated

The platform makes every effort to make all of the pertinent information about the online casino as simple to read as possible in its reviews. Thus, players can quickly determine what kind of casino it is and what it has to offer, such as bonuses and game selection, at a glance.

To be precise, it places a high value on the casino’s welcome bonus because it is often the first thing that players notice in the first place. On its website, players can see how it rates bonuses on a scale of 1-5. For example, if a bonus has particularly stringent terms and conditions, it will be considered in Veikkaajat’s overall rating procedure.

Game Selection & User Experience 

The variety of games offered by a casino is taken into account as well. While some players prefer as many different games as possible, others are content to repeat pairs of the same game repeatedly. As a result, while the number of games does not always indicate the selection quality, the platform assumes that the largest and most well-known manufacturers supply a casino. 

The important point in this list is user experience. Veikkaajat checks how easy it is to navigate through the game’s lobby. Even though a simple word search is no longer sufficient, it is impossible to find anything in the vast array of modern casinos without the use of appropriate filters.

Safety Requirements 

Even though there are many online casinos, not every gambling site can prove its security and fairness. Veikkaajat carefully checks casinos’ licenses and ensures that sites meet specific criteria before suggesting casinos to the readers. 

To be precise, usually a reputable gaming authority issues the license. For example, the Maltese Gaming Authority (MGA), UKCG licenses are the most common, but Veikkaajat also lists casinos granted an Estonian or Curaçao Gaming License. 

The SSL certificate should be mentioned as well since it is a digital certificate that encrypts data. It ensures that all communication between a casino site and its players is safe and secure. In this way, the information sent to the casino is protected from being intercepted by third parties. By keeping in mind players’ security, casinos need to implement such technology. All the casinos listed on the Veikkaajat site are trustworthy and secure, not just at this point. 

Payment Methods

Payment processors for online casinos must also adhere to the same standards as the casinos themselves. This means that all transfers to and from the casino are protected by encryption and that all payment services are well-known and approved by the relevant authorities in each jurisdiction.

Responsible Gaming

Playing should always be enjoyable, but it has the potential to become an addiction in some cases. The online casino must have the tools necessary to assist the gambler and to keep gambling under control. These measures may include, for example, suspending a player’s account, imposing game limits, or prohibiting them from participating in the casino’s games altogether. In addition, the casino should have a page dedicated to identifying problem gambling and locating assistance.


Step two: Verification by a Twitch streamer 

In the digital age, it is difficult to stay afloat without adapting to new realities. The Veikkaajat understands this better than anyone else, which is why the second step on the way to obtaining a SafePlay Certificate is a verification by a Twitch streamer, Gargamies. 

The essence is that Gargamies makes a video review of a casino for a nominal fee. To make a video review, Veikkaajat ensures to register with the casino and make a deposit. According to the rules, Gargamies claim the welcome bonus and play in available games. By completing the KYC, the streamer will withdraw funds to see how easy the procedure is. If there are no problems encountered during the testing, the certificate will be issued.

Importantly, the results will be posted on the Veikkaajat site regardless of the outcome. Hence, it proves again how fair the SafePlay certification procedure is.


To sum it up, Veikkaajat, being one of the most comprehensive online casino comparison sites, made this certification procedure to show players all the seriousness of its intentions. To support players in their desire to gamble on only safe and secure platforms, the site has a structured review algorithm. All in all, the SafePlay certificate will significantly facilitate the search for trustworthy casinos and save players from scammers and deception. 


Best Games to Come In 2022



Reading Time: 2 minutes


There is a common quip in the gaming and game development world that new games’ release dates are more of suggestions than a sure thing. This is because no game ever makes its initial release date. But gamers have come to terms with delays and understand that it’s part of the game development process. However, this does not keep us from getting excited about the new titles slated to be released later this year.

This piece will look at the best games you should expect before the year ends. So if you’re ready to possibly get your hopes up for no reason, keep reading to learn more.

1. God of War

God of war is a quirky game set in a world inspired by the Norse mythology and was initially released in 2005. The game has gone through a few iterations over the years, which has only improved its gameplay. The current title does an excellent job at developing its characters and establishing their backstories, pulling you into the game and engaging you even more.

In addition, the musical score does an even better job at accentuating important moments in the game. That’s why we are so excited about the new revamp slated for later on this year. We are sure the stories and music will only get better, and we don’t even need to mention the gameplay. Sony always kills it.

2. Call of Duty

When duty calls, you have to answer. This is one that never disappoints. Its action sequences are as engaging as ever, and the graphics are every graphics designer’s envy. Betway also found that playing COD helps you burn as much calories as a long walk, with a 90 minute gaming session elevating your heart rate to 90+ beats per minute and helping you burn up to 180 calories.

So you can now enjoy your gaming sessions and don’t have to worry about missing the gym. And with a new release this year, we have more than one thing to be excited about.

3. Last of Us

Another title that is excellent to play is Last of Us. It’s set in a decaying post-apocalyptic world and stars two characters—a child accompanied by an adult. However, the story is not about the dilapidated world but about these two characters and their struggle to survive this world.

This is one we hope the development gods here us and release as expected. We cross our fingers and hope it makes its release date this year.

4. A Plague’s Tale

Set in a corps-ridden world, plague-infested rats and inquisition soldiers who have it out for the two orphaned sibling protagonists. The game’s setting does an excellent job of making the main characters empathetic as you witness their struggle from a third-person perspective.

However, the gameplay is not that engaging, and the obstacles are neither challenging nor compelling. We are glad the makers are revamping this one and getting a second chance at taking another crack later this year.

5. FIFA 23

FIFA is a classic game that never disappoints. It has been a favorite for many, and FIFA 23 is expected to be the most popular iteration of the francise yet.

QTech Games bolsters its offering with CQ9 Gaming integration



Reading Time: 2 minutes


Emerging-markets leader extends its premier portfolio with more top slots from an emerging Asian force in multiplayer video content

QTech Games, the number-one games distributor across all emerging markets, has announced its latest premium partnership with Asian video content and slots supplier, CQ9 Gaming.

Under the terms of the new agreement, CQ9 Gaming’s GLI-certified portfolio – comprising top-quality slots, arcade, and table casino games – has been integrated for QTech Games clients and their players, providing another cutting edge to a powerhouse platform recognised for bringing the finest online games to market across developing territories.

Popular CQ9 titles include Good Fortune, 1945, Kronos, Zeus, Lucky Fishing, and many others which harness the appeal of multiplayer fish games, arcade games, not to mention multiplayer online board and card games. This ever-evolving production line will help QTech Games strengthen its comprehensive spread of gaming verticals, central to QTech ONE™, its definitive one-stop shop for global operators.

The deal organically broadens CQ9 Gaming’s global footprint, accessing a fresh scope of growth markets for accelerated expansion. As the fastest-growing distributor over the past few years, QTech’s platform is localised for each region with native mobile apps, robust reporting and marketing tools, and 24/7 local-language support.

Ulf Norder, CCO at QTech Games, said: “We’re excited to be teaming up with CQ9 Gaming whose stunning graphics and gameplay chart near the pinnacle of the marketplace. The QTech Games platform is equipped with the best games from the world’s leading suppliers – and CQ9 now joins this branching tree.

“CQ9 Gaming may only be a young company, but they’ve already managed to build a strong fan-base in Asia and are moving on to conquer previously untapped markets in Europe and LatAm. Their titles run off an agile HTML5 gaming engine, meaning that you can access them either via desktop or mobile devices, even if the casino doesn’t currently offer a dedicated mobile app.

“Wherever you set your scene in this ever-changing landscape, our platform champions a mobile-first mantra, packed with all the best localised games that cater to varied cultural tastes. By way of instructive example, if you don’t offer the fish game in China, there’s no chance of becoming successful. And it’s a similar story with the Andar Bahar in India. CQ9 understand the demand for regional specificity throughout Asia and beyond, making them a logical and long-term ally with which to team up.”

A CQ9 spokesperson added: “This deal significantly broadens CQ9 Gaming’s international influence, opening up ‘margin’ markets from Eastern Europe and Latin America for diversified growth.

“CQ9 is one of the leading video slot suppliers in the Asian market with more than 100 titles under our belt. We’re steadily working on extending that reach and establishing ourselves in Europe and CIS-facing territories, and QTech’s broad spread of emerging-markets access means we can achieve this with dexterity while also consolidating our existing Asia-facing audience.

“Our goal has always been to design intuitive and interactive live-dealer experiences that are customised for every generation of mobile end-user. Since QTech Games is a defining distributor across Asia and other unexploited regions, we can’t wait to see how our games connect with different and diverse player profiles.

“At a time of refined localization techniques, QTech Games is really delivering on their brand promise of customising high-class content for varied cultures. This is what keeps them at the forefront of relevance for all kinds of players in the bubbling melting-pot of emerging markets.”
