Malta Jurisdiction

The last thing online players want to do is gamble on sites that are not licensed or regulated by a governmental agency. That's the best way to encounter issues of unscrupulous behaviour. One of the most popular locations for many of the world's top online casinos and sports books is the country of Malta located in the Mediterranean Sea.

The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) is the single public governing body for the country. This agency maintains authority over many different gaming/gambling sectors including amusement machines, lotteries, gaming devices and remote (online casino) gambling. It is noteworthy that horse racing is regulated jointly by the Ministry for Justice and Home Affairs as well as the Malta Racing Club, while sports betting, referred to as spread betting, is regulated by the Malta Financial Services Authority.

Malta Gaming Authority

Malta's Gaming Regulatory Agencies

The MGA was established by the country's legislature with the Lotteries and Other Games Act, 2001. The group's primary mission is "ensuring gaming is fair and transparent to the players, preventing crime, corruption and money laundering and by protecting minor and vulnerable players." In May of 2004, Malta became the first EU member to have a governing body for online gambling.

Why Malta?

As the online betting market exploded in the late 1990s, online casino owners were looking for "friendly" destinations where they could submit to reasonable regulatory rules and establish credibility within the industry for the benefit of customers. The online gaming industry brings a unique product to the gaming world that involves cutting edge technology and a higher level of understanding and attention. Malta is a prime location due to the countries modern infrastructure, stable currency, geographical position, low inflation and strong economic background.

The Malta Remote Gaming Council

In conjunction with these complicated issues, the MGA established the Malta Remote Gaming Council in 2005. This group was formed in order to bring all facets of the online gambling industry together in a meeting of the minds. The group also provides an organized forum to allow for ongoing discussions about advancing the quality and needs of the industry. Participants include owner/operators, ISP providers and software developers.

Malta's Gaming Regulatory Agencies

Under the current Lotteries and Other Games Act, online gaming is identified as "Other Games by Means of Distance Communication". Here are a few notable regulations set forth by the MGA.

  • In order to obtain an online gaming license, the applicant must be a registered corporation in Malta.
  • Online gaming licensees are good for five years.
  • All principles of the applicant's organization must be of proper moral character with no criminal history and sufficient financial means to cover operations for a specified period of time.
  • Gaming operations must be fair and operated in the best interest of the public at all times. Failure to do so will result in the revocation of licenses and the issuing of any appropriate sanctions and/or fines.
