Finnish casinos have their online gambling roots in 1996 when the Finnish Jukka H became the first real money player on the Internet. Then the Finns have been playing online games: casinos and especially their slot machines are the favorite websites of many Finns. As there are strict gambling regulations in place, the best foreign casinos offer all games and services fully localized to Finns. According to statistics, Finnish players are the biggest gamblers. Furthermore, there are many internationally successful poker players in Finland and the reputation of the Finnish poker tables is widely known. For example, online poker players who are looking for easy games avoid the popular poker tables because they know that the Finns play a rigorous skill game. And even if you could imagine otherwise, online casinos did not have a negative effect on the popularity of the country casinos, but the effect has been reversed by the increasing popularity of the games.
