Maltese Laws For Online Casinos
In Malta, online parlours are basically not allowed unless they are licensed; the same applies to land based casinos and betting facilities.
As for legal regulations of the MGA towards online parlours, MGA has three important legal foundations to pursue the authority’s goals and values. The foundations are Responsible Gaming Foundation, GamingMalta, and European Gaming Institute of Malta. These three institutions focus on different aspects of the gaming industry in the country and abroad, to ensure that the niche is fair and transparent.
Malta has a well-developed legislative framework for the gaming industry. The framework includes Gaming Act, 2018 – Chapter 583 of the Laws of Malta, regulations by the Minister responsible for the Malta Gaming Authority, and Directives and legal instruments to be used in different cases.
This well-developed framework makes Malta Gaming Authority one of the most reliable and effective regulators in the niche, on the global level.
