MALTA TABLES NEW GAMING BILL IN PARLIAMENT

Wide-ranging overhaul on the cards.


A new gaming bill was tabled by the Parliamentary Secretary for Financial Services, Digital Economy & Innovation, Hon. Silvio Schembri before the Maltese Parliament Tuesday.

The new gaming bill seeks to repeal existing legislation and replace it with a singular primary Act of Parliament, together with subsidiary legislation covering horizontally the main thrusts of gaming regulation as well as a series of technical directives and guidelines currently being consulted on by the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) for eventual publication and rollout by the regulator once the Act comes into force.

This Bill marks a major step in streamlining and encompassing the governance of all gaming services offered in and from Malta and across all channels under the competence of the MGA’ Schembri said.

“The Government wants to ensure that the gaming industry continues to be run responsibly, fairly and free from criminal activity, so that the Maltese jurisdiction provides a safe and well regulated environment where the industry can also develop and innovate.”
