The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) hosted a delegation Spelinspektionen, the Swedish authority in charge of regulating the gambling industry.

Malta.- The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has revealed that in August it hosted a delegation from Spelinspektionen, the Swedish body responsible to licence and regulate gambling.

The visit follows the recent Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between both regulators. The visit coincided with the recent enactment of the Swedish gambling licensing regime, as well as the overhaul of the Maltese gambling regime in August 2018 and was thus an opportune time for exchange of best practices between the two regulators.

Furthermore, deeper collaboration between the two authorities serves well as a large number of operators are subject to both bodies, said the MGA when announcing the news.

“MGA and the Swedish regulator held presentations and discussions over two days regarding regulatory functions and objectives common to both organisations, including anti-money laundering, criminal probity and fitness & propriety, financial suitability, player protection and player support, responsible gaming, data & statistics, IT systems deployed by the regulators and sports integrity amongst other regulatory issues,” said MGA.

“Following a number of visits from other delegations earlier this year, the MGA is constantly welcoming such opportunities as they are the ideal platform for both knowledge sharing and mutual collaboration and discussions.”
