Recently we have recieved lots of requests regarding Malta MGA gambling license and in this article we will touch base with the general information.
The MGA offers predominantly two types of licences, and applicants may apply for either a gaming service or a critical gaming supply licence as explained below. Applicants may opt to apply for both, depending on the way their business operation is set up.
Gaming service licence is a business-to-consumer (B2C) licence to offer or carry out a gaming service. A critical gaming supply licence is a business-to-business (B2B) licence to provide or carry out a critical gaming supply.
The following services shall each constitute a gaming service: offering, provision or operation of a gaming service; and hosting by a person in his premises accessible to the public, the operation or making available for use a gaming device or gaming system.
The following services shall each constitute a critical gaming supply: supply and management of material elements of a game; and supply and management of software, to generate, capture, control or process essential regulatory record and/or supply and management of the control system itself on which the software resides.
Applicants applying for a gaming service or a critical gaming supply can offer one or more of the following game types:
Type 1 – Games of chance played against the house, the outcome of which is determined by a random generator, and shall include casino type games, including roulette, blackjack, baccarat, poker played against the house, lotteries, secondary lotteries and virtual sports games;
Type 2 – Games of chance played against the house, the outcome of which is not generated randomly, but is determined by the result of an event or competition extraneous to a game of chance, and whereby the operator manages his or her own risk by managing the odds offered to the player;
Type 3 – Games of chance not played against the house and wherein the operator is not exposed to gaming risk, but generates revenue by taking a commission or other charge based on the stakes or the prize, and shall include player versus player games such as poker, bingo, betting exchange, and other commission based games;
Type 4 – Controlled skill games as per regulation 8 of the Gaming Authorisations Regulations. Further information can be obtained here.
Provided further that in the case of a game displaying elements which may fall under more than one of the types referred to above, it would be up to the MGA’s discretion to categorise the game in the type it believes closest reflects the nature of the game.
The MGA requires a separate approval for each gaming vertical that requires safeguards in order to ensure that it is offered in a manner which adheres to the Law and the regulatory objectives:
Lotteries and secondary lotteries;
Fixed odds betting;
Pool betting, including betting exchange;
Poker and other commission-based, peer-to-peer games such as bingo, but excluding betting exchange;
Lottery messenger services; and;
Controlled skill games.
