Veikkaus 70 Years
The Finnish national betting agency Veikkaus was founded in the autumn of 1940 to procure funding for Finnish sports. In later years the most of its proceeds have been distributed to other causes, such as youth work, culture, arts and sciences. The exhibition presented the history of Veikkaus from its modest beginnings to its present state as a major lottery and gaming company. The photographs and objects on display were mostly provided by the museum and archive department of Veikkaus.
