It is no secret that the iGaming industry is one of the largest industries in Malta. More and more companies are either moving their casino and betting operations here, or new companies are being established. The EU member state Malta is now becoming the number one state for iGaming businesses, and even the large Betclic Everest group recently fully migrated their business from Gibraltar to Malta.
The iGaming industry is a rapidly changing sector, and new laws in the EU member states are constantly changing the legal situation. Players in this highly dynamic sector need to be able to quickly adapt to changes in technology and regulations. It is imperative to stay ahead of the competition, and player acquisition and retention have become a major focus of the companies. With higher competition it has become more difficult to keep players, and operators will have to be inventive in order to stay on top of the game.
The growing gaming industry has a high demand for qualified workers, and more career opportunities are available in Malta. To meet this demand, Malta’s government is also going to establish the Malta Gaming Academy to offer training for personnel specialised in the iGaming industry.
What makes Malta so attractive as a gaming jurisdiction is the trust players have in websites operating under a Maltese remote gaming licence, and the favourable tax laws for companies in Malta. For example, companies operating from Malta can be eligible for a refund of 6/7 of corporate tax when certain criteria are met and the refund is applied for in due time. Gaming companies can also benefit from the relatively low taxes on gaming revenues.
