Finnish flagFinland’s RAY gambling operation has seen the number of suspensions rise. The figure is believed to currently stand at around 3% and that figure is set to go up as more sign up to use the site. Pelimaailma began trading around six months and a successful period saw them boast a profit earlier this year. RAY’s Internet operations director Kari Hyttinen, commented, ”It has done exceptionally well. There is a large selection of games.” He later admitted to that the number of suspensions has risen from 2,500 at the start of the year thanks to more players signing up.

RAY can suspend players for breaking the sites rules and regulations. The majority though comes from players themselves aiming to limit the risk of addiction. Anniina Aaltonen of the Peluuri gambling addiction helpline, added, ”Debts can run from thousands to tens of thousands of Euros or more.”

The Playtech supplied service was launched back in November and early signs show that 82% of those gambling have a preference for Black Jack.

In other news, GTECH G2 has announced that they’re investing a further €2m into their International Poker Network (IPN). It will mean better promotions for players on the network and ultimately deliver a more exciting experience for those playing. GTECH G2 will also invest heavily in its poker software with the intention to double the size of their poker development team. They are also enhancing the poker product piece by piece to offer players the “ultimate poker experience” and “exceeding changing player demands.”
