iGaming Law

Malta is considered to be one of the top jurisdictions for achieving a gaming license. This is due to a number of factors, which include the improved licensing process, Malta’s central location in the Mediterranean and its experienced multilingual force.  Furthermore, we can contribute our success to a favourable corporate and gaming tax regime, low fees, reputability of the license and the advantageous European onshore business environment. Malta is also considered to be a hub for other forms of iGaming, such as digital gaming and the research and development related to it, gaming marketing, gaming software development and licensing.
