Finland's Ray to Launch Online Offering in 2010

29 April 2009
Finland's slot machine association, Raha-automaattiyhdistys, is expected to launch an online gambling offering by 2010, reports Helsingin Sanomat, a Finnish daily.

The news comes as little surprise because the association -- better known by its abbreviated trading moniker, Ray -- announced last May it would be ready to launch an online poker operation once amendments to the country's Lotteries Act are implemented.

Ray is one of the country's three gambling monopolies, and currently holds the license to operate casinos, casino games, slot machines and poker games -- all offline.
