Malta’s gaming industry

Innovation is a crucial notion and is at the heart of Malta’s gaming industry. It is for this reason that Malta continues to re-invent itself in this regard, following its successful establishment as a leading, serious and well-regulated European remote gaming jurisdiction. For this reason, Malta is estimated to host around 10% of the world’s on line gaming companies.

Malta as a gaming jurisdiction

Malta’s solid regulatory framework continues to rank Malta highly in as far as financial market sophistication goes, and the fact that Malta was recently ranked 11th among 139 economies, in the global competitiveness table, gives the country further competitive advantage.

‘’We continue to note an interest in Malta as the preferred jurisdiction of choice for iGaming start ups’’ said CSB Group CEO Michael J.Zammit. ‘’Last year’s event, and the recent Malta iGaming Seminar that we organised also served to show that innovation was as key as creating new market niches for the iGaming industry, Mr Zammit added.
