“Like all good ideas, Relax Gaming was dreamt up one evening in the pub.”
In our case the pub was in Malta and the year was 2010. As well as a fondness for strong drink, its founders Patrik Österåker and Jani Tekoniemi shared strong technical skills, a feature which still today is a key feature of the organisation’s DNA. Our goal was to provide a better quality, more flexible, platform than was available to operators at the time. After three generations of poker products, two generations of bingo ones, and a well-established and well-received casino one it still remains our goal.
Unibet shared that vision, has been an important customer from the start, and still employs our services today. Naturally, Relax has evolved and matured and now includes a number of leading European gaming operators and fellow suppliers among their clients. From employing a handful of people, we now have over 70 dedicated staff, whose impressive work ethic is matched by their desire to retain the original spirit of adventure and sense of fun.
We Relaxers, as we like to call ourselves, get a kick out of doing new things and leveraging the full potential of our multi-talented team. These days the company is a full service house where we do pretty much everything in-house. That includes initial concepts, design, user experience, platform integrations, client development, infrastructure operations, licensing, and compliance. We hold gaming licenses jurisdictions like the UK, Malta, Denmark, Romania and Alderney. And we still find time to go to the pub.
