Casino ID – Key to a responsible world of games

At Veikkaus’ Casino Helsinki you play authenticated. The Know Your Game customer programme supports responsible gaming. On your first visit, you will get a Casino ID card, a key to our world of games. Our goal is to make sure that everybody can keep gaming on the joyful side by setting personal limits on their gaming.

Know Your Game – Our customer programme for responsible gaming

At Veikkaus’ Casino Helsinki, we want to protect the joy of gaming. That is why you will become a part of the Know Your Game customer programme on your first visit. Once you register at the casino reception, you get a personal Casino ID card, a key to our world of games in Helsinki.

At the tables, you authenticate yourself by giving your Casino ID card to the dealer, and on slot machines, you feed your card into the card reader.

Our customer loyalty programme is based on responsibility and does not reward people for gaming. We encourage all our players to familiarize themselves with the rules of the games, since it is easier to control gaming and set personal limits on your gaming if you know them. Our staff is always happy to answer any questions pertaining to the games and offer advice on responsible gaming.

Tools for gaming control

Our goal is that every customer would set suitable personal limits on their gaming. You can access the following tools for gaming control:

  • In table games, daily and/or monthly purchase limits
  • On slot machines, daily and/or monthly time and loss limits

You can also block your gaming on the slot machines for the rest of the day by pressing the “Panic button”, designed for self-exclusion. You will recognize the button for its red colour on the card reader screen.

If you lose the joy of gaming, you can also opt for an entry ban to the casino for a period of 3 months – 1 year or for the time being.

Please contact our staff to set your limits.
