The LGA and Malta’s licensing

Malta’s financial history tells us that it has been steady and stable in commercial services and banking. When Malta joined the EU, Malta had to include the EU’s regulations and money laundering safeguards. So with the new regulations Malta obtained together with the already strong legal regime that Malta had, made this island an excellent solution for operators to operate in. The LGA, Lotteries and Gaming Authority takes care of all the gaming in Malta

The Lotteries and Gaming Authority always aims to be both game neutral and technology neutral in the remote gaming department so that it can take care of all the different types of gaming and can also use the Internet, Mobile, TV’s with digital capabilities, telephones and faxes to it’s advantage.

There are various types of licensing in Malta, so the operators may choose to apply for either or for all of these licenses.
