Paf, a well-known online gaming provider for cruise ships, has recently signed a content supply agreement with the newly established shipping company, Gotland Alandia Cruises. This agreement will see Paf providing gaming entertainment on board the M/S Birka Gotland cruise ship, which is expected to begin operating in the spring of 2024.
As a Finnish company with a legal gambling monopoly on the Aland Islands region of Finland since 1966, Paf has a long history of delivering high-quality gaming content. They have been providing online gaming content on the Aland Islands and cruise ships since 1999. As a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for Aland charities, Paf is known for its commitment to quality and game development services. Therefore, the company is a trusted partner and a top choice for providing gaming entertainment tailored for cruise ships.
Gotland Alandia Cruises AB is a joint venture between the shipping companies Viking Line and Gotlandsbolaget. The company is set to launch the M/S Birka Gotland cruise ship in 2024, and among its many onboard amenities, it will offer online gaming experiences to its customers. Paf’s expertise and experience make them a natural choice for delivering gaming entertainment to the new shipping company.
Jannik Svahnström, Head of New Sales at Paf, expressed excitement about the cooperation, stating, “We are really looking forward to starting our cooperation straight away. We want to contribute with a good concept for the games onboard. It will be an exciting challenge to get all the new gaming machines and table games in place in the coming months.”
In addition to gaming entertainment, the M/S Birka Gotland will offer a wide range of leisure and entertainment options, including restaurants, shopping areas, and a spa. Paf will deliver and manage the slot machines and table games onboard to enhance the overall passenger experience. Susanne Kaarnimo-Knight, CEO of Gotland Alandia Cruises AB, expressed confidence in Paf, stating that they are a well-established company and a natural partner. She believes that Paf can deliver a good package for the gaming experience onboard.
The M/S Birka Gotland is scheduled to set out on its first cruise between Stockholm and Mariehamn at the end of March 2024, offering cruises between popular destinations in Gotland, Denmark, central Sweden, and neighboring countries. This new partnership between Paf and Gotland Alandia Cruises is expected to enhance the gaming and entertainment experiences for passengers aboard the M/S Birka Gotland.
