New York-listed gaming software supplier Inspired Entertainment has won a tender to supply Finnish state-owned gaming operator Veikkaus with its virtual sports content.

Inspired has been selected following a public request for proposal (RFP) process, and will now roll out its virtual games portfolio for the operator's land-based venues and online gaming offering.

"We are pleased to have been chosen as the Virtual Sports supplier to Veikkaus," Inspired president and CEO Luke Alvarez commented.

"Following the recent announcement of Inspired's deal with Michigan and our roll-out with the Greek lottery, OPAP, this deal adds to our growing portfolio of international lottery partners."

The supplier's chief commercial officer for digital games Steve Rogers described the Veikkaus deal as "a significant and strategic deal" for the virtuals division.

"Winning the RFP to supply our world class virtual sports products to [Veikkaus] is testament to the quality and commercial viability of our products, and offers a significant opportunity for further growth within the Scandinavian lotteries," he explained.

Shares in Inspired Entertainment Inc (NAQ:INSE) closed up 1.79 per cent at $11.40 per share in New York Thursday.
