according to the standards of the World Lottery Association (WLA).

FINLAND (December 10, 2019) -- At
its December meeting, Veikkaus' Board of Directors has appointed an expert
advisory body to the company, the Ethics Advisory Board. The company decided to
establish an Ethics Advisory Board last August.
For the last time Veikkaus has had a
similar body (Ethics Council) during the old company. Veikkaus, RAY and Fintoto
integrated into the new Veikkaus on 1.1.2017.
The purpose of the advisory board is
to provide an outside view of the company's board and operative management on
gambling activities. The Advisory Board focuses in particular on the ethics of
games and their marketing, gaming harm and the social impact of gaming.
The Advisory Board may, if it so
wishes, make concrete proposals for solutions, make statements, and provide
ethical arguments on practical issues related to gambling and the discussion on
gambling. It does not resolve individual issues or complaints from outside
In addition to the chairman, the
Advisory Committee shall consist of five members and shall serve for a term of
two years. The Chairman will report to the Board by the end of March on the
activities of the Council during the previous calendar year.
The establishment of an
Ethics Board complements the company's new, broad-based corporate
responsibility measures. We are investing in developing a safer and more
responsible gaming environment, and the Ethics Council outside the company's
operations is an important part of that, says Pekka Ilmivalta,

At the end of last year, we
opened a huge space to develop our offer in the area of online by
building two strong products, including one under a completely new brand.
Thanks to this, we have contributed to the Polish players for the first time
being able to play in a legal, comfortable, safe and fiscal-friendly manner.
The development of our e-commerce offer has been based from the beginning on
player protection and prevention of addiction to gambling, it is required not
only by law, but also due to many years of experience related to the rules of
responsible gaming , said Olgierd Cieślik, President of the
Board of Totalizator Sportowy.
As the company's representatives
emphasized, the further development of e-commerce products is primarily a
desire for even more free, but also engaging participation in the entertainment
offered by Totalizator Sportowy while maintaining the highest standards of
By launching thesale of favorite LOTTO games via the Internet and Total Casino, we tried
not only to adapt our offer so that on the day of release both platforms would
meet the needs of our customers. We also focused on introducing changes in the
functioning of the company itself, thanks to which the products made available
to our players can be adapted to their expectations on an ongoing basis. This
is also what happens, thanks to entering the e-commerce market, we have become
a B2C company, where customer experience issues have become a priority and,
most importantly, necessary when it comes to the further development of our
offer. Thus, we implement one of the main assumptions of the strategy adopted
in the company, according to which the customer is in the spotlight,
said Olgierd Cieślik, President of the Management Board of Totalizator
All the time, the company has been
adjusting both platforms on an ongoing basis, listening to customer feedback,
both in terms of improving functionality and introducing new games. - In
addition to activities related strictly to the optimization of individual
platforms, we have ensured constant development of the offer. The introduction
of DC Comics license games to Total Casino was a great qualitative leap, in the
case of lotto.pl we have supplemented our offer with Multi Multi and the
extremely popular Keno, we have introduced the possibility of system play or a
subscription model, i.e. a form of subscription to the game - emphasized Maciej
Kasprzak, Department Director Online Games in Totalizator Sportowy. Adding that
this is not the end of surprises when it comes to 2019.- In December we will
give our players the opportunity to play Extra Salary and Cascade - he
The director of the Online Games
Department also pointed out that both lotto.pl and Total Casino had many wins,
including high ones, within 12 months. - In April, the player who hit the "six"
lotto in the amount of 3.3 million zlotys was lucky online, while in August we
recorded 2.5 million zlotys in Multi Multi Plus. The highest one-time win at
Total Casino fell a few days ago and amounted to exactly PLN 759 093.49 -
emphasized Maciej Kasprzak. As added by a representative of Totalizator
Sportowy, customers of online platforms also have their habits, for example
when it comes to the type of devices used. - In both cases, the majority of the
game takes place via mobile devices, including via the application- summed up
Maciek Kasprzak, adding that both on both platforms are dominated by men and
The representatives of Totalizator
Sportowy also emphasized that in connection with the launch of the online games
offer, the standards of responsible gaming have been adapted to both the
legislator's requirements and the current needs of the players. First of all,
the user must prove that he is over 18 years old by verifying his ID card. In
addition, players are required to set limits on their activity and financial
resources allocated to the game, they also have the option of temporarily
suspending the possibility of the game. In addition to the aforementioned
safeguards, the player can perform a self-checking test, he also has access to
an informant about the facilities that provide assistance in the field of
gambling problems. Importantly, also Contact Center employees, who have direct
contact with clients are regularly trained in responsible gaming standards by
psychology and psychotherapy specialists. From the beginning, the company
emphasized that it is not only about providing entertainment, but also about
doing it in a responsible and safe manner.
Totalizator Sportowy emphasizes that
next year is constantly developing online platforms. - Entering the e-commerce
market is also a great development process for the entire company. In the
longer term, we want to not only optimize our services by introducing new
payment methods or account verification. In the plans for next year, we have
also included a further extension of the product offer, which should be enjoyed
by, among others, fans of popular scratch cards, although this will not be the
end of surprises at lotto.pl. Advanced works are also underway to launch the
first Polish legal Live Casino - summed up Olgierd Cieślik, President of
the Board of Totalizator Sportowy.

partners in the fight against corruption in sports.The Malta FA was the
catalyst behind the Anti-Corruption Task Force in 2015 which eventually led to
the introduction of the Prevention of Corruption in Sport Bill and the
formation of a national Sports Integrity Unit.
This Data Sharing Agreement
represents another important step to further strengthen the Malta FAs
efforts to tackle match-fixing within its regulatory limits at sporting level.
It enables the MGA and the Malta FA to share not only crucial data but also

The speed with which we have
been able to go live with Red Tiger content on some of NetEnt customers bears
testament to the hard work and collaboration since the acquisition was
completed. It also shows great promise for NetEnt Connect which is a key part
of NetEnt strategy going forward, said Henrik Fagerlund Managing Director
of NetEnt Malta and Chief Product Officer.
A key incentive to work with
NetEnt was to tap into the reach and markets it has built up. Im very
excited that the early collaboration between the two companies since the deal
was completed has allowed NetEnt customers to go live seamlessly with Red Tiger
too, said Gavin Hamilton, CEO of Red Tiger Gaming.
NetEnt will take the opportunity to
validate and monitor this initial launch of the new NetEnt Connect platform
over the coming weeks with a wider launch planned for early 2020. The

and start with several already integrated partner game suppliers.
