WHAT IS MGA
MGA in an abbreviation for the Malta Gaming Authority.
The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) is the gaming control board of Malta. It regulates most forms of gambling in its territory, including both land-based (casino, amusement and slot machines, betting offices, fantasy sports, and lotteries) and online gambling services including B2C and B2B services.
The MGA was one of the first regulators to offer legislation that regulates the activity of online gambling companies and create a secure atmosphere for players.
The MGA was established in 2001 to regulate the various sectors of the gaming industry that fall under the MGA's authority, by ensuring fairness transparency to players using gaming services, preventing crime, corruption and money laundering and to protect minor and vulnerable players.
The MGA licenses several well-known online gambling companies. The list of current MGA license holders is provided at the "MGA Licensee Register".
