The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) doesn’t categorize games into specific types like “Type 3.” Instead, the MGA classifies gaming activities into various classes based on the type of game offered and the potential risks associated with it. These classes are defined under the Remote Gaming Regulations.

Here’s a brief overview of the classes of gaming activities regulated by the MGA:

  1. Class 1: This class includes games of chance played against the house, where the operator bears the risk of the game. Examples include casino-type games like roulette, blackjack, and slot machines.
  2. Class 2: Games where the operator acts as an intermediary between players, and the outcome of the game is determined by peer-to-peer gaming. Poker falls under this class.
  3. Class 3: Wagering on events, competitions, or processes, including sports betting and pool betting, where the operator facilitates betting but doesn’t participate in the outcome.
  4. Class 4: Hosting and managing gaming operators. This class covers software vendors and game hosts who provide gaming platforms to operators.

These classes are subject to specific licensing requirements and regulations set forth by the MGA. It’s essential for gaming operators to adhere to these regulations to ensure a fair and transparent gaming environment for players.
