Inspired Entertainment Scores With Finland's Veikkaus

Inspired Entertainment, Inc. is a global games technology company, supplying Virtual Sports, Mobile Gaming and Server Based gaming systems with associated terminals and digital content to regulated betting and gaming operators all over the planet. The company has been making great strides in its expanding strategy although it already maintains over 100 websites in 30 countries.

The company announced a few months ago that it had completed a Virtual Events Deal with Michigan Bureau of State Lottery in the USA to supply its world-class Virtual Events lottery products online.

Now the company is announcing it has struck another lucrative deal with the Finnish government’s Veikkaus, the Finnish National Betting Agency which has an exclusive and legal betting license for lottery and sports betting in Finland.

The software developer utilized a public RFP process to access the competition to supply Virtual Sports products to Veikkaus Sports Betting locations and the Veikkaus Sports Betting web domain.

Luke Alvarez, President and Chief Executive Officer at Inspired Entertainment commented on the arrangement , "We are pleased to have been chosen as the Virtual Sports supplier to Veikkaus,"  Alvarez continued,  "Following the recent announcement of Inspired's deal with Michigan and our rollout with the Greek lottery, OPAP, this deal adds to our growing portfolio of international lottery partners." 

Steve Rogers, CCO Digital Games, for the Inspired firm also said, "This is a significant and strategic deal for Inspired's growing Virtual Sports business," Rogers added, "Winning the RFP to supply our world class Virtual Sports products to the Finnish National Betting Agency is testament to the quality and commercial viability of our products, and offers a significant opportunity for further growth within the Scandinavian lotteries."

Referring to the company’s weak second quarter financial results CEO Alvarez said: "We continue to be excited about the momentum in our business. We delivered solid volume growth in our SBG estate and rapid growth in our Virtual Sports business driven both by increasing market penetration and improved performance from existing operators.”
