60 years of experience Betsson Group in brief


Betsson Group, operating Betsafe and SuperCasino brands in Estonia, offers casino, sportsbook and other games. From a single slot machine in 1963, Betsson Group is now one of the largest companies within the global iGaming industry. 


Year 2023 marks the 60th anniversary of Betsson Group – reflecting stability and company’s strong background. And it shows in the results. Despite the challenging market conditions in 2022, Betsafe delivered 15% growth. The profitability makes way for new investments in new markets and constant development of the tech platform. 


The company mixes its heritage with a forward-looking and tech-savvy mindset. As the iGaming industry is ever-evolving, Betsson Group recently moved to a brand new office at the heart of Tallinn. When their first office was opened back in 2002, there was only one single employee. Only one! This has grown into 120 (and constantly 📈) people, working mostly in the commercial and tech teams. Nevermind the 2200+ colleagues from 72 nationalities Betsson Group has at other locations.


Betsafe is also a loyal supporter of the local sporting scene. Sponsoring different sports disciplines, federations, leagues, and individual athletes. Lithuanian basketball league, Paide Linnameeskond, Ott Tänak – to name a few. Also one of the most legendary sports commentators Kalev Kruus hosts Betsafe Podcast.

12 Fintech Companies in Finland to Watch Out for in 2019

12 Fintech Companies in Finland to Watch Out for in 2019

FinTech is a big thing in Finland. Currently there are 170+ FinTech companies that generated over a billion euros in revenue in Finland in 2018. Over 400M euros have been invested into Finnish FinTech powerhouses and demand seems to be growing according to Helsinki Fintech Farm.

Taking all that into consideration it comes as no surprise that most MeetFrank users from Finland want to work for startups, companies seen as the next big thing and FinTech. 

Let’s take a look at some of the companies on MeetFrank you probably know about and some you should get to know making waves in FinTech in Finland.



Ferratum is a true market leader in Finnish FinTech. Generating over 200M euros in revenue, others don’t even come close. They have over 14 years of experience providing digital financial services.

Sievo, established in 2006 is a global leader in procurement analytics. Up to date they have over 180 employees, enjoy over 82k cups of coffee annually and manage spend over €350B annually. Sounds pretty impressive to me.

What is it like working at Sievo? They don’t care if you speak Finnish, they care if you can do quality tech. Whilst they do serious business for big global corporations, you can genuinely be your awesome self and the whole organisation is jointly against assholism. 

P.S. Over 30% Sievonians are female (in IT!).

Fintech in Lithuania – How These 10 Companies are Making a Difference?

Fintech in Lithuania – How These 10 Companies are Making a Difference?

Lithuania has very quickly established itself as a new and innovative fintech hub. A lot of this is thanks to the flexible regulations by the government. Lithuania’s e-money licences for example take 3-4x less time than in most other EU countries.

And with Brexit at our doorstep, companies are flocking in to be able to keep their fintech operations up in Europe. Lithuania began attracting fintech companies a few years ago, and as of January 2019 has issued a total of 83 licences to such firms, second only to Britain among European Union countries, according to government figures.

So let’s take a look at some of the fintech innovators in Lithuania and what they do on a daily basis.



Blockchain is connecting the world to the future of finance by building the tools and technology people need to buy, store, and use cryptocurrencies in everyday life.

More than 41M Wallets have been created on their platform from across 140 countries.
