Paf - The Company
Paf (Business ID 0280695-6) is an innovative, leading house of knowledge in gaming. Paf gaming services has changed a lot from being long operated only within partnerships. Paf has now two equally important strategies. In addition to partnerships, among others, with many known shipping companies, gaming is also directed to the end consumer via new distribution channels - the Internet and mobile phones.
A lesson that Paf has learned over the years - and has found further support and acknowledgment the last year - is that gaming customers are happy at slot machines onboard ships or on the Internet as long as the game is entertaining, reliable and generous.
Paf has international gaming rules and a mathematic pay-off percentage up to 98 percent.
With regard to generosity, Paf can proudly stress that generous gaming is an effective way to attain and keep customers who will be loyal to the Paf brand.
Paf is generous in many ways, not only in the pay-off percentage. The gaming club, Club Paf, offers Internet customers exciting contests and offers with attractive prizes - in most cases, cost-free. The profits from gaming activities are used for the public good: culture, sports and the social sector.
The Paf Group
The Paf Group is divided in such a way that the parent company, Paf, operates gaming activities on the autonomous Åland Islands, onboard Ålandic and Finnish ships and on the Internet. International business activities are directed by the fully owned subsidiary company Paf Consulting Ab and its international subsidiary and associated companies.
Leader in gaming at sea
The Ålandic gaming company, Paf, is one of the leading gaming companies on board passenger ferries and cruise ships operating on the Baltic Sea. Paf also has extensive experience in gaming activities on international waters.
A generous Scandinavian gaming company
Paf started investing to Internet gaming activities in 1996, but the gaming really took off in association with the launch of betting in December 1999. Since then, Internet gaming activities have experienced great expansion in both the number of gaming customers, turnover and especially in revenues. The domestic market is Scandinavia, with the Baltic Sea as the common denominator. Our aims are to further adapt gaming for the customer, to develop new interactive gaming and to crossbreed traditional gaming activities in Åland and at sea with the digital gaming world.
A responsible gaming operator
One of Paf's goals is to provide guests with pleasant gaming entertainment in controlled and safe forms. Gaming addiction is something we want to resist actively, since gaming unfortunately can lead to problems for some.
Paf annually trains its own staff, local healthcare personnel and business partners in what gaming addiction is and how it should be handled.
Paf makes brochure material about gaming problems, which is available at its gaming locations, in various publications and on the Internet. Paf continuously provides information to its Internet customers concerning various forms of technological solutions for setting personal gaming limits or for freezing gaming accounts.
Development of personnel a priority
One of Paf's goals is to provide a creative and dynamic working environment where all employees enjoy working and feel it is fun to work. This is the vision that Paf believes in and works towards, for the benefit and pleasure of our customers.
For Paf, the high competence and sense of responsibility of employees is an important key to success. The Paf management is also aware of the importance of a healthy staff and supports a diversity of exercise, fitness and recreational activities in order to involve as many people as possible. Proof of Paf's success in this is the low sick-leave rate and a very low employee turnover.
