Remote Gaming

The remote gaming sector is the most dynamic and the fastest growing gaming sector in Malta. It is regulated under the provisions of the Remote Gaming Regulations (L.N. 176/04).

The sector dynamics of remote gaming coupled with the technological convergence created the need for a remodelled regulatory framework. The first on-line betting in Malta in the 2000, was established under the Public Lotto Ordinance (L.N. 34 of 2000), to regulate offshore betting offices. Since then LGA has developed its methodologies to regulate the procedures of remote gaming operations, and in April 2004, revamped Remote Gaming Regulations were published. Malta became the first EU member state to regulate Remote Gaming.

What Classes of Licences are available?

The Remote Gaming Regulations (hereinafter the ‘Regulations’) establish four (4) Classes of Remote Gaming Licences, these being:

  • Class 1 – a remote gaming licence (eg. – casino type games, online lotteries) whereby operators manage their own risk on repetitive games. It is also possible to have a Class 1 on 4 licence whereby the Class 1 licensee operates its games on the software and in certain cases through the equipment of a Class 4 licensee;
  • Class 2 – a remote betting licence (eg. – fixed-odds betting) whereby operators manage their own risk on events based on a matchbook;
  • Class 3 – a licence to promote and/or abet remote gaming in or from Malta (eg. – poker networks, peer-to-peer (P2P) gaming, game portals) whereby operators take a commission from promoting and/or abetting games. It is also possible to have a Class 3 on 4 licence whereby the operator uses a licenced Class 4 as its platform;
  • Class 4 – a licence to host and manage remote gaming operators, excluding the licensee itself, whereby software vendors provide management and hosting facilities on their platform.  In essence this is a business to business (B2B) gaming licence.
