The Malta Gaming Authority is working on plans to offer a unified self-exclusion system to be applied to its regulated gaming industry.


It has issued a Preliminary Market Consultation document requesting observations and information on the project. In a press release the MGA said: “Responsible gaming is a key priority within the MGA’s regulatory policy development and framework.”

It said that after a white paper on the island nation’s legal framework on gaming, which was issued in 2017, the authority seeks to further strengthen the protection of players.

It has recently published a Player Protection Directive and an Alternative Dispute Resolution Directive and already indicated its plans to launch a self-exclusion system.
