The MGA’s stand at ICE Totally Gaming Expo 2016

This year’s ICE Totally Gaming EXPO 2016 was once again a great success for the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), where a high degree of interest in Malta as a gaming jurisdiction of excellence was registered. In fact, traffic on Malta’s stand was higher than that experienced in previous years.

Joseph Cuschieri, Executive Chairman of the MGA said that this year’s ICE expo was very positive for the Maltese Authority, with a number of existing licensees confirming their plans for growth and expansion in Malta. Furthermore, a high degree of interest was registered by potential new licensees in establishing their presence in Malta to serve markets in Europe and beyond. The new gaming legislation which should be enacted later this year and the changing regulatory landscape in Europe was of particular interest to the industry. “This is very encouraging for both Malta and the MGA”, said Mr. Cuschieri. “It gives us the motivation and resolve to continue delivering on our strategic plans to make Malta the Silicon Valley of gaming and a global centre of excellence”, he continued.

At this year’s expo, the MGA participated with a team of 12 officials with disciplines ranging from Legal, International Affairs, Compliance and Authorisations together with members of the MGA’s senior leadership team.
