Ålands Penningautomatförening or PAF (sometimes called Play Among Friends) is a Finnish company that operates a legal gambling monopoly on the autonomous Åland Islands region of Finland. We found 4 online casinos and sports books using their software. The games they provide are available online, on the Åland Islands and on cruise ships. It appears as if the sports betting software is actually offered in conjunction with Unibet. Some casinos delivering PAF games also offer NetEnt and Jadestone products. Games made by PAF include bingo and lottery style games, 3 reel and 5 reel slots, and skill games like backgammon. The live dealer integration is Evolution Gaming. Poker is provided in conjunction with Microgaming. Some games such as slots and mobile games are developed in-house. Most games are delivered in Flash, however, a few of their games require Java.
Paf is non-profit and was founded in 1966 although they came online in late 1999. They were founded to raise funds for Åland charities and all profits go to good causes. Several hundred people are employed by Paf. Some reports put their charitable contributions at over €100 million per year.
Paf offers white label services business to business so any qualified company, even if currently not involved in online gaming, can offer their own branded games without the need to apply for and receive a license. All backend administration is handled by Paf in these instances.
Paf has made over 40 slots to date. A small selection are 3-reel games and the remainder use five reels. A good variety of themes and math models are available including games with progressive jackpots. Line count on the 5-reel games ranges from 9 lines with Beach Volley slot to 50 lines on their Reels of Fortune slot with a lot of variety in between.
