Malta, being the first EU member state to regulate remote gaming, has successfully established itself as a leading, serious and well-regulated European online gaming jurisdiction. There has been a steady increase in the number of licensees operating in Malta during the last decade. In fact Malta currently hosts around 10% of the world’s online gaming companies and is home to some of the world’s largest and most profitable online gaming companies.
The remote gaming sector is regulated under the provisions of the Remote Gaming Regulations. The Lotteries and Gaming Authority (‘LGA’) is responsible for the governance of all forms of gaming in Malta, including remote gaming.
Any person engaged in the carrying out of remote/online gaming activities in or from Malta must be licenced by the LGA to provide remote/online gaming operations, unless such person is already in possession of a valid licence which is recognised by the LGA.
Intermediaries (also known as ‘skin’, ‘affiliate’ or ‘white label’) partnering with a licensee for marketing purposes do not need to be licenced (although notifications are required).
The LGA has a licencing framework based on 4 different classes, being:
Required for operators managing their own risk on repetitive games (including casino-type games and online lotteries). 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).
Required for operators managing their own risk on events based on a matchbook. Under this class, operators can offer fixed odds betting (including odds betting, pool betting and spread betting). It is also possible for operators to have a Class 2 on 4 licence, whereby the Class 2 licensee runs a remote betting office on an existing Class 4 licensee.
A licence to promote and/or abet remote gaming in or from Malta, where players on the network play against each other and operators takes a percentage of the rake for organising and promoting the game (including poker networks, peer-to-peer gaming, game portals). It is also possible to have a class 3 on 4 licence, whereby the operator uses a licenced Class 4 as its platform.
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 gaming licence.
The Application process can be completed in as little as two months from the submission of a complete application. Furthermore, licences are issued for a period of five (5) years. On the expiration of the initial 5 year term, a licence may be renewed by the LGA for further five (5) year periods at a time.
The prospective licensee submits an application form and provides detailed information about the proposed business and persons involved in the proposed operation. The prospective licensee must demonstrate that the company applying for the Malta remote gaming licence and all related stakeholders are ‘fit and proper persons’, and that it has the business and technical ability to carry out the operation.
The LGA will review the System Architecture and Application Architecture, rules of the games, playing procedures and operator’s procedure. Upon successful completion of Phase 2, a ‘Letter of Intent’ is issued which is in essence a provisional licence for 6 months.
During this phase, the licensee is expected to go live. The authority will closely inspect the gaming office’s control system and related administrative and accounting procedures to ensure compliance with local laws and regulations. Control system must be certified as being compliant (ISO/IEC17799 standard).
Following the granting of a licence, the licensee is under an obligation to comply with certain terms and conditions that may be imposed therein by the LGA, including the appointment of a Key Official within 21 days of issue of the Licence.

Corporate tax in Malta is payable at the rate of 35%. However, shareholders may apply for tax refunds amounting to six-sevenths (6/7) of the tax paid by the company upon distribution of its profits. This effectively results in a net tax paid by the shareholder of 5%.
We pride ourselves on offering a personal and efficient approach with a commitment to tailoring our services to meet your needs. This process is overseen by professionally qualified individuals including lawyers, accountants, chartered bankers, chartered secretaries and trust and estate practitioners.
We assist our clients with all licensing and compliance issues, and provide a full spectrum of services, including company registration, preparation and co-ordination of all aspects of the application process with the LGA and on-going support for operators establishing their operations in Malta.
