iGaming licensing and advisory

Malta was one of the pioneers amongst EU Member States to regulate remote gaming in 2004. Today, the new gaming framework which came into force in August 2018 has moved towards an objective and risk-based regulatory approach to encourage innovation in this ever-changing technological sector, while improving player protection.

Malta offers two types of remote gaming licences: (i) a gaming service licence intended for B2C gaming suppliers including games of chance, peer-to-peer games and controlled skill games, or (ii) a critical gaming supply licence intended for B2B operators.

ARQ’s team of iGaming specialists will assist in identifying the remote gaming jurisdiction best suited for the client’s purpose and determine the required licence type. Our service is all-encompassing, commencing with consultancy on technical requirements, corporate structuring and assessments of the gaming systems, through to drafting any necessary documentation required as part of the application process and representation with the MGA throughout and beyond the licencing procedure.
