CSB Group can help you obtain your Malta Remote Gaming Licence. The Remote Gaming Regulations (hereinafter referred to as the ‘Regulations’) established four (4) Types of Remote Gaming Licences.

CSB Group has been awarded the iGaming Consultancy of the Year at the 2022 edition of SiGMA Europe Awards! The Group would like to take this opportunity to thank its clients for showing continued trust in its services.

Applicants may apply for a Gaming Service or a Critical Gaming Supply Licence

Gaming service licence is a business-to-consumer licence to offer or carry out a gaming service. A critical gaming supply licence is a business-to-business licence to provide or carry out a critical gaming supply.

The following services shall each constitute a gaming service:

  1. offering, provision or operation of a gaming service;
  2. 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:

  1. supply and management of material elements of a game;
  2. 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; and/or;

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; and/or;

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; and/or;

Type 4 – Controlled skill games as per regulation 8 of the Gaming Authorisations Regulations.

Provided further that in the case of a game displaying elements which may fall under more than one of the types referred to above, the Authority shall have full discretion in categorising the game in the type it believes closest reflects the nature of the game.

A separate approval is required 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:

  1. Casino;
  2. Live casino;
  3. Lotteries and secondary lotteries;
  4. Fixed odds betting;
  5. Pool betting, including betting exchange;
  6. Poker and other commission-based, peer-to-peer games such as bingo, but excluding betting exchange;
  7. Lottery messenger services; and;
  8. Controlled skill games.

Applications for licences can be submitted to the MGA via the Licensee Relationship Management System (LRMS).

Testimonial

As foreigners having our business located in Malta, it did not take long until we realised the importance of local know-how and the value of having the presence of a professional partner that could take care of juridical and financial matters. We can honestly say that choosing CSB as our advisor is one of the best decisions we have made. CSB always delivers great results in a timely fashion and we would give them the best recommendations to anyone that considers starting up their business abroad.

In 2018 we took the decision to use CSB Group to help set up a company and apply for a B2B licence in Malta. After contacting a number of different organisations CSB stood out in terms of their pre-sales response, it was timely informative and presented in a manner which showed that they understood us and our needs. Thankfully the focus on Price, Quality and Service still continues today and the team at CSB are more like an extension to our team, than just a trusted partner or supplier.
