One of the smaller countries in Northern Europe, Finland has proved a bit conservative vis-à-vis gambling law there. For some time, the nation has hosted just two casinos within its borders.
The bigger (by far) of the two is naturally located in the big city: Grand Casino Helsinki features 300 slots, video poker and other electronic games plus 20 table games, poker room and a couple of electronic poker tables. Meanwhile, the “competition” exists in the appropriately-named Arkipelag Hotel & Casino in the Åland Islands, an autonomous region of Finland in the Baltic Sea. This small lodging spot includes 80 pokies and seven table games in its casino.
No word on whether the Finland casino situation will be loosened up for greater competition in the near future, but the country’s relative social conservatism might keep the choice limited for a while yet.
