The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has awarded a Class 2 Remote Gaming Licence to online operator Bet365.
The licence, handed to the Bet365 Hillside (New Media Malta) branch, will cover the operatorâ€™s sports betting services.
Bet365 becomes the latest firm to secure a licence in Malta, with BetConstruct having also recently been awarded a Class 4 Remote Gaming Licence by the MGA.
â€śDue to the regulatory developments in various operating territories, Bet365 decided that in addition to the remote gaming licences held by our existing operating hub in Gibraltar, a Class 2 licence by the Maltese regulator was required in order to obtain and maintain certain regulatory approvals as well as to support its operations in the evolving global regulatory environment,â€ť a Bet365 spokesperson said.
â€śIn conjunction with the Maltese licensing process, we have also now established a Maltese marketing company, with premises located in Sliema, accommodating our marketing management and procurement functions headed by Fred Bjurjfall, who will be supporting the marketing activities of the group.â€ť
