Finns flock to work in Online Casinos in Malta

It is quite well known that Malta is one of the most sought-after-places for online gambling. The reasons are not exactly rocket science. Friendly government regulations and favourable tax regimes are what attract gaming companies to this tiny island.

What is less known though is the number of Finnish citizens working in the gaming companies in Malta?   Apart from Finland, other European countries such as Sweden, Portugal, Slovenia and the Czech Republic do not allow any commercial online gambling operators and the government hold monopoly on the lottery and actual and virtual casinos. Some of the European countries, UK, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, Slovakia, and Estonia, have a fully or partly deregulated online gambling market.

Malta has over 300 companies in the gaming sector, employing around 12,000 people. Among those who have moved there are at least 400 Finns. Malta has thus been called “The Silicon Valley of Casinos.”

While only Veikkaus, PAF (Åland equivalent of Veikkaus) and Finntoto are allowed to offer online and offline gambling to the Finnish population, there are up to 100 international sites offering Finnish language gambling sites. Veikkaus and Paf also operate actual casinos and plenty of slot machines in Finland.

Finland’s slot machines for gambling situated in public places are exceptional for Western countries. As the cashier at a till hands over a coin as change, many Finns advance to the slot machine by the entrance in a routine-like manner to try their luck. In other Western countries, such a habit is very unordinary.

“In other countries gambling machines are usually situated in casinos, restaurants, and bars, whereas in Finland they are a part of people’s everyday life in shops, kiosks and petrol stations,” says development coordinator Tapio Jaakkola from Gambling Clinic (Peliklinikka), specialised in gambling addictions.

A valid argument offered by the government in regulated countries is preventing gambling addiction and the resulting financial crisis to individuals by limiting the amount people can gamble and on the other hand recycling the profits to the society for good causes. Veikkaus and PAF return the majority of their profit to culture, sports, research and other social causes. The third argument is the reliability of the gambling operator. Government-owned companies do not cheat.

Same could not be said about commercial online gambling sites and because of the vastly unregulated international market and difficulty of control, there is no guarantee that sites could be reliable. Several services such as Kantacasino.com have tried to solve this problem by star ranking and auditing online gaming sites based on reliability, the number of games available, offered bonuses, and user-friendliness of sites.

According to the Ministry of health of Finland, 2.7 per cent of Finns in the age group of 15–74 suffer from gambling problems at different levels. That is 110,000 Finns. Gambling problems are three times more common among men than women (men 4.7 per cent, women 1.6 per cent). The change of the age limit (K-18) in 2011 has significantly reduced gambling within the group of young males. Gambling among girls was rarer already before the amendment. There are several different sites offering help and information for people with gambling problems, such as Pluuri, Gametalk and Peli poikki.

Exotic clusters aplenty in totemic new game

Malta, 13th July 2018: Award-winning supplier Red Tiger Gaming has made a fruitful addition to its video slots portfolio with the debut of its new title Tiki Fruits.

The supplier’s latest title is its first cluster/grid-type game, played on a unique 8×10 grid, where the bigger the cluster players can build up, the bigger the win, meaning they can scoop some juicy-looking prizes.

There are plenty of free spins to be won too, with a complete bonus bar signalling free Tiki Spins which give players the chance for some very big rewards of up to 2,000x their stake.

Furthermore, if the faces on the exotic totem poles activate and remove some of the fruity symbols, new ones will drop, allowing players more chances to hit the sweet spot and win big.

Gavin Hamilton, Chief Executive of Red Tiger Gaming, said: “Tiki Fruits is another innovative addition to our expanding portfolio and it’s very exciting for us to offer a new concept to our players.

“With huge prizes to play for, we believe this game can really pack a fruit punch, especially with the amount of free spins that are on offer and we are sure it will be a big hit with players.”

Tiki Fruits is the latest video slot to join Red Tiger’s high-quality and rapidly growing portfolio which currently stands at over 70 titles, including long term favourites such as Dragon’s Luck and recent smash hits like Laser Fruit.

All of Red Tiger’s games may be taken with the supplier’s unique progressive jackpot software, as well as its Smart Spins marketing tool which takes a wide range of bonus mechanics and targeting options and delivers promotions via an in-game dialogue module.
