Betting Sites and Bookmakers in Finland

Bookmakers and Betting Sites in Finland

The lion's share of Finns’ sports betting is not carried out on local sites but rather on the international betting platforms of well-known global brands. The reasons for this are quite understandable as foreign online bookmakers offer far better and more competitive odds for betting and the quality and number of the tools that large international betting sites make available for professional betting at are much higher.

Examples of such betting sites are NordicBet, MrGreen, LVbet and Betsson, which are visited by up to 1 million Finnish players every month.

To date the Finnish government has been tolerant of this situation and foreign sites have not been blocked nor have Finnish players been subjected to suffering legal liability.
