Gaming Management

Ccmalta Default

In Malta, all gaming operations must obtain a licence from the Malta Lotteries & Gaming Authority (LGA) and appoint a Key Official within 21 days from issue of the Letter of Intent. Our iGaming Lawyers have years of experience in their field and can advise clients and provide them with different services to suit their gaming management needs, such as providing local directors to act as Key Officers.

In Cyprus, gaming is developing into a highly lucrative activity, particularly in the sector of gambling which is a very popular pastime in Cyprus. We help clients acquire their gaming licence, but also offer services post-licensing in order to cater for the company's gaming management

At Chetcuti Cauchi, we are able to provide local directors to act as key officials for your gaming company. They will undertake the following responsibilities:

  • System review/ Certification of compliance
  • Sealing of Servers and also ensuring that seals are not broken, and if so, they must be reported to the LGA and re-sealed
  • Incident reports - the LGA is to be advised in respect of any changes made to either the hardware or software of the company, by signing and submitting Incident reports
  • Keeping the LGA updated in respect of any changes to be made to the set-up approved by the LGA.
  • Submission of monthly gaming tax and annual gaming licence fee
  • Submission of the company's accounts/ audit.
  • Ensuring players' funds are adequately held by the Company at all times
  • Data Protection
  • NSO - National Statistics
  • Key Officer will also have access to the back-end system.
