The Remote Gaming sector is the most dynamic and the fastest-growing gaming sector in Malta, and is regulated under the provisions of the Remote Gaming Regulations (S.L. 438.04).
The sector dynamics of remote gaming, coupled with the technological convergence, created the need for a re-modelled regulatory framework. The first online betting site in Malta was launched in the year 2000, under the Operation of Betting Offices Regulations (S.L. 70.04), to regulate offshore betting offices. Since then, the MaltaGaming Authority (MGA) was created to regulate all forms of gaming in Malta, including remote gaming operations. In April 2004, the Regulations were published, making Malta the first EU member state to regulate remote gaming. The Regulations are divided into four classes depending on which type of operation companies fall under and include licences for Business to Consumers (B2C) operators as well as Business to Business (B2B) operators.
