Since its inception in 1966, Paf has been offering outstanding entertainment options on the Internet. This service seems to be distinct from other alternatives, as this online site has almost monopolized the gambling industry in the countries near the Baltic Sea. Let’s see how this establishment might differ from other competitors.
The little story
Prior to focusing on online gaming, Paf was a charity dedicated to charitable services such as the Red Cross and Save the Children. Its development in 1999 led to the launch of one of the first online casinos and now holds a world record in the field. In 2013, Paf donated over ten million euros to the development of a jackpot machine game. As large as the sum is, the company has only increased its capabilities as a bookmaker.
General presentation of the site
Paf presents a platform with a singular design, but with a perfect layout. Overall, everything has been organized to make navigation easier. At the very top of the homepage are the login and registration links. On the same side is an option to change the language of the site. This only works in English, Swedish, Estonian and Finnish. At the top left, another link gives you access to the section with all the available games.
Paf is licensed in the Aland Islands and has therefore obtained a license to operate legally. Because of its exclusive rights to offer gambling, the company is responsible for ensuring that the rules set out by the regulator are followed. The regulator is responsible for intervening in the event of a dispute, but protection systems have been developed to protect players. Paf is still named as the world leader in responsible gaming. In addition, it provides a full guarantee on the storage of personal and financial data of all its users, even after an account deletion.
Paf has developed a mobile application for Android devices. To download the programme, you need to go to the official website. On the other hand, you only have to connect to your account on the mobile site if it is an iOS operating system. Whether on the mobile site or via the software, you will benefit from similar functionalities to those of the classic version of Paf.

Bonuses and promotions
Paf does not offer a sign-up bonus, but offers new subscribers the opportunity to win €20 on a daily draw bonus, once the account is validated. To obtain it, you will have to make a sports bet by contributing a fixed amount to the prize pool. Please note that no withdrawals will be allowed under this promotion. You will not benefit from it either if you place your bet with a free bet. All you have to do is wait for the result to determine the list of winners. If you join the club, you will automatically win ‘rakebacks’ in the form of free games.
The casino is also offering an additional 25 free spins, which is available to residents of Estonia. This promotion does not require a deposit, and you can take advantage of it once you have registered on the Paf website. It should be noted that there are no wagering requirements for the winnings. However, keep a close eye on the time limit for using the freespins. Furthermore, Paf invites every new customer to join the affiliate programme. The amount of commission can range from 25% to 50%. In addition, the advantage is a bonus offer of 15% on the first deposit.
The betting and gambling offer
Paf offers a wide range of sports events to bet on.

The sports page also has a live betting section, by clicking on the ‘Live’ tab. As always, team sports, including football, remain the focus.

Paf’s game library is characterized by a wide range of exclusive games, of which there are more than a thousand. The slot machines, divided into several categories, are among the most popular. To make your search easier, you can sort the list by game or by software provider using a specific function. Apart from slots, Paf has included video poker, jackpot boxes, poker, bingo, lottery and table games in the directory. Please note that each of these options has been given a respective section. The live casino, despite its outdated look, has a well laid out style. In general, this section is mostly represented by various table games, consisting of several variants of roulette, blackjack, baccarat, a casino hold’em and Ultimate Texas Hold’em for poker. You can also play other types of games such as Megaball, Live Monopoly, Deal or No Deal, but that’s only part of it. As a member of Paf, you are always part of the Paf Club. Membership is free and without obligation, but you can expect to win great prizes at any time.
Available payment methods
Unlike some online bookmakers, Paf has a very limited range of payment options. Whether it’s to fund the account or to retrieve money, these include bank cards such as Visa and MasterCard, Skrill e-wallet, Neteller, Siirto payment systems and bank transfer. Paf sets the minimum deposit amount at €10. The processing time for this operation is almost instantaneous. The transfer time depends on the payment method used and can last from 24 hours to 5 days.
If you need help, you can count on Paf’s customer service. The support team can be reached by phone, e-mail or via live support.
