Malta Gaming Authority issues guidelines on technical infrastructure

Following a public consultation about the use of cloud solutions in remote gaming, the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), is publishing a set of guidelines with respect to technical infrastructure hosting gaming and control systems used by remote gaming licenses.

The purpose of the guidelines is to guide operators, licensees, service providers and stakeholders on the MGA’s compliance objectives when evaluating an applicant’s or licensee’s technical set-up.

The approach focuses on the utilisation of a technological environment which has the required level of security and data integrity allowing the MGA to have timely access to all the regulatory data in order to ensure that it remains well positioned to conduct its supervisory functions, at pre and post licensing stages including the possibility to carry out regular inspections, auditing and/or ad-hoc investigations.
