Veikkaus Creates a Suitable Environment for Safer Gambling 

Veikkaus did not have a good beginning this year. The gambling monopoly in Finland encountered a 6% decline in overall turnover during the first six months of 2019.

The company has appointed new supervisory board members intending to strengthen and elevate the responsible gambling standards in their company. There are a total of 28 members on the board, of which 13 members are representatives of various political parties and 13 representatives of Veikkaus’ stakeholders. There are two representatives from Veikkaus’ employees. The board will be led by chair Jukka Gustafsson and vice-chair Jani Mäkelä.

Veikkaus hopes that the new supervisory board members will oversee the company’s corporate governance strategy as well as the implementation of responsible gambling policies. The chief executive Olli Sarekoski noted that the new measures would provide a safer gambling environment and also create more opportunities to prevent money laundering offenses.
