EveryMatrix has been named as the winner of Finnish gaming and lottery monopoly Veikkaus’ public tender for online casino games.

The six-year tender will allow EveryMatrix to supply its catalogue of 65 online games to Veikkaus, which in turn will be offered to players in Finland.

This will include content from EveryMatrix’s own design studios, Spearhead Studios and Armadillo Studios, as well as its SlotMatrix partners.

This will take place once Veikkaus integrates EveryMatrix’s igaming platform, CasinoEngine, into its capabilities.

“Winning Veikkaus as a client marks another major milestone for EveryMatrix,” said Stian Hornsletten, chief commercial officer of EveryMatrix. “We are already working with several other state-owned monopolies and have enough experience in the field to deliver the best service to Veikkaus.

“Our team looks forward to supporting Veikkaus in their journey, and we are keen to get started as soon as possible.”

Over the last year, Veikkaus’ status as Finland’s state monopoly has been brought into question. In December 2021, Finland’s Constitutional Committee said that there was nothing to justify protecting Veikkaus’ monopoly status in the country.

In the same month, the country’s Administrative Committee proposed an inquiry about whether Veikkaus’ monopoly should come to an end.

“We are very happy and look forward to starting cooperation with EveryMatrix,” said Jan Hagelberg, chief product officer at Veikkaus.

“EveryMatrix’s full-service platform offers us one of the industry’s best catalogues of games, including its proprietary in-house portfolio.”
