The Nordic gaming company Paf has signed a new multi-year cooperation agreement with the shipping company Tallink Grupp. The agreement marks the extension of a successful partnership, where Paf will continue to provide gaming entertainment onboard the company’s vessels.

“We are pleased to continue our long-standing history with Tallink Grupp. This partnership is an important step towards further improving the entertainment experience for our customers,” says Lasse Danielsson, Chief Operating Officer Land & Ship.

Tallink Grupp operates several passenger ships in the Northern Baltic Sea region under the Tallink and Silja Line brands.

“We will implement our ‘Customer Journey’ concept, which will be an important factor in improving the interaction with our players. The concept not only strengthens the gaming experience but also our communication about responsible gaming,” says Christian Lundell, Key Account Manager at Paf.

In addition, Paf will review the possibility of expanding the gaming experience with specific amusement games designed for adults.

Improved responsible gaming onboard

Paf has previously implemented updates that have improved responsible gaming onboard Tallink’s ships operating to and from Estonia. On these vessels, passengers are required to identify themselves with their boarding cards to be able to play on a slot machine.

“Through our cooperation with Paf, we have successfully achieved a higher standard for the gaming activities onboard. We especially value Paf’s work on responsible gaming and the improvements implemented on our Estonian-flagged ships. Our goal is to improve responsible gaming onboard all our ships together with Paf in the coming years,” says Kairi Maidla, Group Entertainment Director at Tallink Grupp.

Lithuanian MPs have registered amendments to the Gambling Law proposing to further tighten gambling advertising in the country as of 2025.

Around 50 MPs, mostly from the ruling majority, have signed the amendments proposing to prohibit the dissemination of information of the gambling companies sponsoring any public events, activities, natural or legal persons.

If adopted, the amendments would eliminate the advertising of betting, wagers, and casinos on television, in newspapers, magazines, or news websites and on street billboards. Neither the names nor the logos of gambling operators could appear on the jerseys of athletes and in arenas during the sporting events.

Companies would only be able to publish information on the types of gambling at the gambling venue or on the company’s website, the address of which is specified in the Gambling Regulation.

It is proposed to allow gambling companies to publish information on gambling only in publications aimed at professionals in the business. They could advertise their name and brand on their head office building or gambling venue.

Lithuanian MPs have started considering tightening the requirements for gambling advertising amid allegations that Šarūnas Stepukonis, a former BaltCap Infrastructure Fund partner, has embezzled and gambled away millions of euros of the fund’s money.

The initiator of the amendments, Mindaugas Lingė of the ruling conservative Homeland Union, has previously said that last year the total revenue of gambling operators amounted to 222 million euros, up from 103 million euros in 2020.

The amount spent on advertising in the gambling business doubled from 6.36 million euros in 2020 to 12.73 million euros in 2023. Gambling operators’ profits increased from 20 million euros in 2020 to more than 53 million euros in 2022.
