The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) is the single regulatory body that is responsible for the governance of all gaming activities in Malta. As Malta’s ‘one-stop-shop’ for permitting, it is the MGA’s obligation to advance gaming in a secure environment and guarantee the keenness of diversions and gadgets, whereas giving licenses to suppliers and making a controlled environment from which gaming exercises, inaccessible or something else, can take place.
These developments have led to new challenges when it comes to defining the conceptual legal parameters. Regulators are increasingly recognising the importance of having an effective and holistic, legislative framework and corporate structure that enables them to face new challenges head-on.
The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) fuses the commercial needs of operators with a deep understanding of gaming legislation and practice. As the single regulatory body that is responsible for the governance of all gaming activities in Malta, it is considered by many to be the preferred global remote gaming regulator.
