Malta is still one of the most popular jurisdictions for creating online gaming operators. Malta’s popularity is based on the fact that it has a developed ecosystem that has evolved to serve gaming operations, has top-notch legal and IT infrastructure, skilled workforce, reasonable rental costs for premises, and overall quality of life and soft Mediterranean climate.
Obtaining an online casino operator license from the Malta Gaming Authority requires a high level of competence and local representatives to contact the state authorities. Therefore, Crown Consultings cooperates with local Maltese specialists, who have been successfully obtaining licenses of online casino operators since 2000.
Main aspects of the licence
Currently, the updated licensing model provides for only two main types of licenses: business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C).
A B2B license is issued to developers and sellers of specialised gambling software, who can receive commissions, but do not participate in the risks themselves.
In turn, a business-to-consumer (B2C) licence is broken down into 4 types:
B2C gaming service license, Type 1 – casino games, lotteries with guaranteed prize
B2C gaming service license, Type 2 – betting shops, e-sports
B2C gaming service license, Type 3 – poker, betting on special exchanges, lotteries, bingo, lotto
B2C gaming service license, Type 4 – skills games
To become an operator of a Maltese online casino, you should be ready that obtaining a license will cost you from 50 thousand euros. At the same time, a share capital will be required, which starts from 40 thousand euros and can reach up to 280 thousand euros, depending on the number of selected types. The good news is that the share capital can be immediately used to launch the project.
