Finnplay launches through Janshen-Hahnraths in the Netherlands
Finnplay’s Fair Play Casino has now launched online through Janshen-Hahnraths, which operates more than 30 other Fair Play-branded land-based venues across the Netherlands.
Janshen-Hahnraths was one of 10 operators that received Dutch licences from Dutch gaming regulator de Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) after the country’s igaming market opened on 1 October.
The 28 operators that applied for a licence paid the stipulated €48,000 licence fee.
“We were very pleased to be one of only 10 companies awarded the Dutch B2C licence,” said Björn Fuchs, chief digital officer of Janshen-Hahnraths.
“We selected Finnplay because of their excellent track record supporting top tier operators in Europe’s regulated markets. We look forward to expanding the reach of our strong and well-recognized brand online to a bigger and broader audience of players.”
“This is a very exciting opportunity for Finnplay, and a strong new partnership for the Dutch market,” said Jaako Soininen, newly appointed managing director of Finnplay. Soinenen replaces Sari Aitokallio, who left Finnplay despite having only been named as its new managing director in January after CEO Martin Prantner stepped down.
“Between JH-Group’s experience as a successful operator in the Netherlands and Finnplay’s technical and compliance expertise in online gaming, this is sure to be a very successful venture.”
Last week, Evolution announced that it had also gone live in the Netherlands through Janshen-Hahnraths.
