They have a long tradition of offering slot machines and other types of gambling on cruise ships. Since the year 1999, they have been running the Paf gambling site online. They also have a brick-and-mortar casino in Mariehamn, Åland. The profits generated by Ålands Penningautomatförening are used to support various charitable projects, especially in the Baltic region.

Paf online is a very large gambling site with odds, poker, casino, backgammon and more.
Paf has odds for sports events as well as for a long row of other events, including some pretty strange ones. They did for instance offer betting on the success of Angry Birds on Facebook when Angry Birds was first introduced on the social media platform.
When it comes to sports, you can bet on anything from football and ice hockey to chess and futsal. Paf also have Supertoto and Superscore.
Since Paf is based in Åland, they are especially fond of offering odds for sports events and other events that will take place in and around the Baltic Sea. They frequently have odds for Nordic and Baltic events that no other betting site is offering odds for. This doesn’t mean that Paf is focused only on the countries up north – if you want to bet on a Latin American football league you can find odds for this too at the Paf site.
As a service to their members, Paf offers Live score & Results.
At Paf, you can bet on computer generated events, e.g. computer generated sports matches. The result of such an event is determined by the random number generator (RNG).
Paf offers live betting. The selection of live odds is especially good for football (soccer), basket, tennis and ice hockey.
Cash-In is offered.
All betting (including live betting) is available for tablets and smart phones. Betting at Paf works well with most operative systems, including iOS 4.0 and later and Android 2.2 and later.
N.B! Supertoto and Superscore is not available for mobile devices (yet).
If your looking for casino games, you wont find them in one single section of Paf. Instead, Paf has separate sections for slots, lottery games, dice & backgammon, and table games.
The slots section contains slots from NetEntertainment + specially created slots that are unique to Paf. Treasure Diver och Sällskapsresan are two examples of slots that can only be played by Paf members. When it comes to slots with a progressive jackpot, it is worth knowing that the progressive Arabian Nights jackpot that you can win playing at Paf isn’t the pooled jackpot but a separate Paf-only jackpot for Arabian Nights. Even though it is fed by Paf members only, it frequently exceeds the pooled Arabian Nights jackpot in size.
If you’re interested in table games, you can find seven different blackjack tables, four roulette tables, one baccarat table and seven types of casino poker in Paf Casino, in addition to quite a lot of other table games.
The section for lottery games consists primarily of scratch cards, but also of games such as Hi-Lo Hunter and Power Keno.
The section for Dice & Backgammon have games such as Yatzy, Solitair and – of course – backgammon.
