The First Internet Scratch Card in Estonia
By staff
European Game & Entertainment Technology Ltd Ab (EGET), a Finnish supplier of digital gaming solutions, has successfully delivered an internet scratch card game to Spordiennustus, an online gaming subsidiary of the Estonian Olympic Committee. This is the first game of this type to be offered in Estonia and yet another first for Spordiennustus, following the launch of their online sports betting site earlier this year.

The scratch card has a basketball theme, hence fitting perfectly with the site. It follows the standard scratch card model with 2 games, doubling the chance to win. Players can also play for ‘double-or-nothing’. The winnings can be up to 100,000 EEK, depending on the price of the purchased ticket.

'Our wish is to offer for our customers new and interesting interactive gaming possibilities. The profit which comes from the games goes to supporting Estonian sports”, says Sven Kolga, Chairman of the Spordiennustus Board.

Until now, Spordiennustus has focused on offering sports betting on the Internet to the sports fans of Estonia. This new initiative demonstrates its decision to broaden its offering to include a range of instant games on the gaming site. This decision is supported by the rapid growth in traffic, indicating the success of sports betting. Another indicator of the accomplishment of Spordiennustus is that its turnover has doubled in 6 months.

'This shows how a successful online gaming solution can be diversified, bringing in new revenue streams,' commented Lauri Gorski, CEO of EGET, 'Sports betting and Instant Games are complementary, encouraging players to spend more time on the site and strengthening their relationship with the gaming operator.'

The delivery of the scratch card is just the first phase . The cooperation with EGET will continue, with other releases of instant games to follow next year. These will include games such as Keno, which will be available at the beginning of next year.
