In the last few years, a large number of remote gaming operators have established themselves in Malta and the Lotteries and Gaming Authority has to date issued hundreds of licences. The industry is in a trail-blazing stage with several countries changing policies seeking to find a stance that addresses the balance between citizen freedom and protecting the same citizen from fraud, crime and addiction.

PwC recognises the importance of the industry to the economy of Malta and supports the concept that good governance and regulation is the solution to protecting players and particularly vulnerable groups. History has shown that protectionism generally serves the unscrupulous more than the righteous.

As the leading and largest professional services organisation on the island, with 19 partners and over 500 staff, we provide a range of assurance, tax and advisory services to a large and varied client base, including reputable remote gaming companies that choose Malta as a base.
