iGaming | Betting  in Malta

iGaming is regulated by The Lotteries and Gaming Authority (LGA) in Malta.  LGA is a single regulatory body  that is responsible for the governance of all gaming activities in Malta including  Amusement Machines, Broadcasting Media games, Casinos, Commercial Bingo Halls, Commercial Communication games, Horse racing, the National lottery, Non-Profit games and Remote Gaming.

Since the enactment of the Lotteries and Other Games Act, 2001 the LGA established the following mission statement:

 

“To regulate competently the various sectors of the lotteries and gaming industry that fall under the Authority by ensuring gaming is fair and transparent to the players, preventing crime, corruption and money laundering and by protecting minor and vulnerable players.”

 

Gaming may be interpreted in various forms of ways. From a simple scratch card, sale of a lottery ticket, bingo hall, Video Lottery Terminal (VLT), Fixed Odds Betting Terminal (FOBT), betting shops, casino regulation, horse races wagers to a full blown remote gaming.

 

All the above criteria require indebt study, a profound financial structure and adequate regulation in order to be offered in a proper transparent manner. Malta is a typical example on the possible implementation of a profound gaming regulation. Through its 2004 remote gaming regulations Malta has turned itself into European leader in remote gaming enabling companies such as betfair, expekt, William hill, Unibet , Interwetten amongst others to set up shop utilising the countries Financial Services set up together with its gaming regulations in order to assist large, medium and smaller operators to benefit from our country structure.
