Why Malta Is the Leading Online Gaming Jurisdiction

iGaming is growing at a phenomenal pace globally, with the global market value predicted to 94.4 billion US dollars in 2024. Malta is surely not missing out on the action – with 10% of the world’s gaming companies registered in Malta, most of which attracted by favorable taxes, licensing and technology, one can truly call this place a mecca of all things gaming. Online gaming constitutes over 12% of Malta’s GDP, with over 250 companies employing over 6,000 people directly.

Of course, being a beautiful, sun kissed Mediterranean island with 300 days of sunshine a year, offering a modern eclectic way of life and a vibrant cultural calendar surely help Malta’s case. A diversified, skilled labor market and European Union membership are just some additional perks that sway in favor of Malta when industry operators are making decisions. This year, the technology and power of the iGaming industry will be showcased at SiGMA Europe will be held in Malta on November 14 – 18, 2022.

Why Malta?

Malta is a respected and advanced online gaming jurisdiction that is known throughout the world for its responsiveness and support of the ecosystem for iGaming. The country has become one of the premier locations for companies to set up and base their operations. The agencies and firms serving the gaming industry know what it takes for gaming companies to thrive and provide the resources necessary to encourage that expansion and growth.

Malta’s regulatory system is both responsive and straightforward, with controls that both protect consumers and advance the interests of companies within the industry. To encourage and welcome iGaming firms, Malta offers reduced rates of income tax for employees of remote gaming companies.

Malta is an ideal place to live, learn and thrive. It offers a top-quality education system, along with a friendly and fun setting with sun, the sea and wonderful cultural opportunities. The economy is strong, and the governmental entities are dedicated to the growth and success of gaming companies and the overall remote gaming sector. Malta is a full member of the EU and is known as the member state that best understands and advances the interests of iGaming across the continent.

The country offers both a highly educated and skilled multilingual workforce and many support industries that span data centres, telecommunications, management consulting and financial services. With their elite technical, IT and support infrastructure, Malta is positioned to be instrumental in your iGaming business success.
