MALTA BETTING LICENCES
Obtaining a Betting Licence
Under the Operation of Betting Offices Regulations, 2000, the conditions for licences
were relatively stringent, in the interest of
consumers and of the reputation of betting companies. Licensing depended on
a number of factors concerning the personality of executives of the
applicant company, the applicant’s financial position and background, and
the applicant’s abilities and availability of appropriate resources.
Furthermore, applicants had to draw up an audited control system
with regard to its accounting, administration and electronic technology.
Licensed companies could be inspected at any time to verify whether they
abided with their licence.
An application for a betting licence required
the following accompanying documentation:
a detailed profile of the promoting
a copy of the last audited accounts of the
a business plan indicating the economic
activity (including job creation) which will be carried out from Malta
a plan of the premises earmarked for
adoption as a call centre.
These regulations were thereafter
superseded in April 2004 with the advent of the
Malta Remote Gaming Regulations, 2004.
