The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) is the single, independent, regulatory body responsible for the governance of all gaming activities in Malta, both online and land-based. The remote gaming regime applied by the MGA is both technology- and game-neutral, therefore encompassing any type of gaming offered by means of distance communication (including, but not limited to, internet, digital TV, mobile phone technology and telephony). Any game offered by means of distance communication, which can be securely managed and is compliant with the Regulations, will be reviewed and considered for licensing by the MGA. In March 2005, the Malta Remote Gaming Council (hereinafter the ‘MRGC’) was launched. The MRGC brings together remote gaming licensees, thus providing the opportunity of addressing new challenges collectively.
