The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) is once again participating in the annual EiG (Excellence in iGaming) Gaming Expo 2016, which is being held between the 18 and 20 October, 2016, at the Arena Halle in Berlin, Germany. The MGA is being represented by a team of staff members who are providing information about Malta’s regulatory framework to all those visiting the stand.

Dr Corinne Valletta, Head of EU & International Affairs at MGA, is participating in a discussion panel titled: “Between regulation and taxation, the right way to defeat illegal gaming”.  Dr Valletta’s intervention will be focusing on the successes of the Maltese industry, which is based on open, tech-neutral and evolving framework which pays attention to the needs of consumers, operators and a genuine understanding of the exigencies of the industry and the player.

Dr Michele Magro, Senior Legal Advisor at MGA will be moderating a panel titled: “DFS: Discovering Hidden Potential”. The discussion will be on DFS revenue potential in the UK and its progression to Europe, whether DFS is to be used as a customer acquisition and conversion tool by iGaming operators, or if it can be a profitable product in its own right. The discussion will also delve into the skill and social elements in fantasy sports.

EiG 2016 plays host to a number of senior-level decision-makers in the iGaming industry, from iGaming operators, Land-Based Casinos, Betting Shops, Regulators, Consultants and many more who bring to the table insights to the challenges and benefits present in today’s market.
