The Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta (LGA) has recognised the advantages and options cloud solutions provide to the remote gaming industry in general. It allows for significant cuts in infrastructure and operational costs, better management and allocation of IT resources, flexibility and scalability of operations.
However, the authority is cognisant of the fact that changing from one environment to another presents new challenges which operators and regulators alike are doing their best to address both from a policy and operational standpoint. It is the intention of the LGA to release guidelines for the Remote Gaming operators making use of cloud solutions. It will also allow facilities to be used as cloud service providers in defined circumstances for gaming transactions.
This consultation is proposing a sharper focus on long-standing principles, with a clearer explanation of why they are important from a policy and regulatory perspective.
We ask the gaming industry and wider interest groups to engage constructively with the questions raised in this consultation.
All responses should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12 December 2014.
