Although I have not been at the Authority for long, my experiences during the past months have been many and varied. My role within the MGA, which started off as an Officer within the Research Department, has served as a stepping-stone to my recent promotion as Manager, within the same department. Amongst my various responsibilities and tasks, I have the opportunity to liaise with key stakeholders within the gaming industry, in order to collect and analyse valuable information from this dynamic sector.
The MGA has given me the opportunity to gain invaluable experience in gaming and work on a wide range of projects which definitely contributed to the opportunity to further my career even more. There is something inspiring in working for the MGA, which is such a strong institution within Europe. Hard work is rewarded and there are various opportunities for growth. I am happy with the whole experience so far and I am proud to form part of the MGA.

Whilst I was still reading for my law degree in 2012, the MGA gave me the opportunity to experience the regulator’s approach to gaming law. The MGA afforded me a flexible schedule that allowed me to concentrate on my studies but at the same time gain valuable experience by working 18 hours a week during the University’s academic year and then full-time in summer. Working at the MGA as a student exposed me to various legal, compliance and enforcement functions for both online and land-based gaming, and this eventually prompted me to write my LL.D. thesis on Consumer Protection in the Remote Gaming Industry, based on the first-hand knowledge gained. Two and a half years later, when I graduated as a lawyer, I joined the MGA on a full-time basis, and I have been exposed to training, travelling and opportunities to be part of major and challenging projects that have contributed towards an exciting launch to my career.

My work at the MGA has been challenging and fulfilling. During the four years I have spent working at the Authority, I have held different positions. Each position has brought about different perspectives, challenges and has enriched my overall skill-set. I started off here as a Licensee Relationship Executive. At a later stage, I moved on to a new role as a Systems and Financial Auditor, which allowed me to complement the knowledge and experience that I had gained in the previous position held.
I enjoy working at the MGA in view of the fact that gaming is a dynamic sector that is constantly evolving. Hence the daily tasks, although exhibiting a degree of similarity, will always present their own peculiar challenges or variances which makes life interesting. The technical dimension of the tasks that need to be performed at the Authority drove me to continue investing further in my skill-set, and I have improved my CV by becoming a certified information system auditor. The decision to continue studying mainly stemmed from the fact that I noticed that the challenges presented by the dynamism in the gaming sector require a career-driven person to engage in a life-long learning journey. I must admit that my work at the MGA has enabled me to think outside the box and identify alternative solutions.

I consider my working experience at the Malta Gaming Authority as a positive one. During the initial days of my employment at the Authority, I was given a warm welcome by my colleagues. The environment was a very encouraging one from the start as I was given the chance to be heard, and also the opportunity to discuss and express my views.
As one of the youngest employees, I believe that the MGA has been a good launch to my career where I feel I can be challenged and am able to evolve my knowledge and expertise. Although I have not been at the Authority for long, I have already been given the opportunity to work on major projects. This gave me the possibility to meet different employees at the Authority as well as different stakeholders within the industry, with whom I could collaborate and learn various procedures in detail.
The gaming industry, being such a dynamic sector offers constant new challenges. Being part of the Authority, gives me the possibility to experience how different stakeholders within the industry are innovative in different aspects, making my work a very interesting and engaging one.
Spread betting and binary options do not fall within the remit of the MGA, however are regulated by the Malta Financial Services Authority.
