Since the early 2000s Malta has secured its position as the leading and best-regulated European remote gaming jurisdiction. The total Gross Value Added (GVA) generated by the gaming industry during the first half of 2023 stood at €810.7 million, representing around 9.5% of the economy’s GVA. When the indirect effects are included, the industry’s contribution to the economy value added increases to 12.2%. Recognising the importance of proper regulation for this industry and its relevance for Malta’s economy, the Maltese government continues to innovate the legal framework to keep up with industry and technological developments, providing a modern, sophisticated and solid framework for the regulation of online gaming operators.

GVZH Advocates is a leading Malta-based law firm actively involved in advising on the policy, law and regulation relating to online gaming, and has been actively offering turnkey solutions to online gaming operators, handling the establishment and re-location of their gaming operations to Malta, besides providing ongoing legal and regulatory support on a wide spectrum of issues. The firm was instrumental in the establishment of Malta as a pioneering online gaming centre of excellence, providing the Malta Gaming Authority with expert advice on the regulatory framework which is considered to be amongst the foremost international regulated gaming centres in the world.
