The new Veikkaus casino, Casino Tampere, will be opened in the arena in December 2021.
Since its opening, Casino Tampere will become a trendsetter in the European casino world as a builder of a responsible gaming environment and a new type of casino arena. All casino games (slot machines and table games) will be fully authenticated. The same system and the same tools for self-control in games will be implemented in Casino Helsinki in the spring of 2021.
– Veikkaus Casinos will become pioneers in the field of responsible gaming. “Authentication provides our customers with game management tools that they can use to manage their games, for example by setting limits on their games or choosing a complete ban on games,” says Sami Aiho, CEO of Casino Tampere.
Even at present, all customers entering Casino Helsinki must have already registered. After the reform, casino customers should also always show their casino cards while playing slots or table games. The authentication system is different from other Veikkaus arcades and points of sale, where you have to be a regular customer to authenticate.
– You can become a regular customer only if you permanently reside in Finland. “We have a lot of foreign guests at the casino, so mandatory authentication associated with your Veikkaus card is not an option,” says Tiina Siltanen, CEO of Casino Helsinki.
From January next year, we will need authentication on decentralized Veikkaus slot machines (for example, in shops, kiosks, gas stations and restaurants). Veikkaus’ goal is to provide full authentication even on Pelaamo and Feel Vegas arcades by the end of June 2021. To achieve this goal, amendments will be required either to the law or to the regulations.
Tampere Casino will become a new type of arena casino with a modern and bright design and a green place where adult guests of the arena can have fun.
– Tampere Casino will be designed in cooperation with experts from different fields. Finnish interior designers in the front row, as well as AV and media specialists will work on the project. The interior design of the casino will be a combination of Finnish wood and wood with digitally personalized surfaces. Special zones forThe lounge and social games will match the pace of events at the UROS LIVE arena, offering new types of products and ways to play responsibly. In the experience arena, you can also participate in real-time mobile games if you are a registered regular customer of Veikkaus, – describes the new casino Mr. Aiho.
According to preliminary plans, Casino Tampere will involve approx. 80 people. We will start recruiting casino staff in stages after the beginning of the year.
– Most of the employees will work in the customer service department at various casino customer service points. Tampere Casino will receive its traditional table games and slot machines, and we also plan to introduce new types of entertainment and social games. The staff will be trained with a special focus on the work environment, unique even on an international scale, where responsibility, an individual approach to the client and an unforgettable experience will be priorities,” says Mr. Aiho.
