The Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta (LGA) has recognised certain concerns due to the lack of specific regulation regarding digital games of skill with prize via distance communication that are offered commercially. Other legislation, mainly consumer legislation, addresses certain facets of the offering of these games. Nevertheless, the LGA feels that specific regulation of this form of gaming, or guidelines relating thereto, may be required.
However, the authority is cognisant of the fact that changing from one environment to another would present new challenges which operators and the regulator alike will require getting accustomed to. In this light, this consultation seeks to elicit the industry’s view of a regulated market for this sector and any other feedback which the industry may have.
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 February 4th 2015.
