The Malta Gaming Jurisdiction - Quality Attracting Quantity

The Malta Gaming Jurisdiction - Quality Attracting Quantity

by Jonathan Dalli – Head of Marketing, e-Management

Malta, the Mediterranean island, has unquestionably established itself as the hub of remote gaming in Europe. When reputable operators started earmarking Malta as their new home, they also realised the various competitive advantages Malta offers, including but not limited to:

  • an EU member state since May 1st, 2004 and euro-zone member since January 1st, 2008; ensuring Malta has a voice in the various EU institutions when discussing the future of the iGaming industry;
  • a welcoming jurisdiction with the regulator having a pro-business attitude and approach, simultaneously being accessible and pragmatic; thus contributing to a solid reputation as a well-regulated jurisdiction which safeguards the interests of the operators as well as those of their players;
  • an efficient and relatively inexpensive licensing process;
  • a very attractive fiscal regime / incentives to the benefit of companies operating from the island, including the availability of tax refunds based on Malta’s full imputation system; complemented by a wide network of double tax treaties with various countries;
  • the domiciliation of companies into Malta or out of the island, facilitating the notion of a company being a going-concern;
  • an established and well regulated financial services industry and the presence of reputable international financial institutions;
  • a stable democratic, political and economic climate, with the government earmarking various areas, including financial services, for Malta to be a centre of excellence, this becoming the government’s short-to-medium term strategy and vision;
  • support services provided by pro-active professionals, including major accountancy and audit firms; as well as the presence of local and international banks;
  • a highly qualified and skilled workforce, fluent in various languages with English being a mother tongue; and
  • web / data hosting and co-location facilities, based on a state-of-the-art telecommunications infrastructure with four Internet connectivity submarine cables connecting Malta to Sicily and subsequently the rest of the world.

The above advantages have meant that other operators started following suit and as such confirmed that a Malta Gaming Licence is a ‘’seal of quality’’. Furthermore, this confirms the LGA’s slogan of ‘Reputable, Responsible and Responsive’ as the European Hub of Remote Gaming.
