The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has published a feedback document related to the consultation process on the draft "Code of Commercial Communications". In this document, the MGA highlights key points raised through the public consultation process which dealt with the need for the updating of the current rules on the advertising of gaming services to better reflect the sector’s development, in terms of player behaviour, marketing techniques, new technologies, regulatory practice, and the needs of society in general.
The proposed Code aims to protect minors and other individuals who are, or may be, more susceptible to gambling. It also aims to promote and safeguard the rights of the players and responsible gaming, the elimination of misleading terms, and the fair and non-predatory treatment of consumers by gaming operators.
The MGA’s consultation on the draft Code of Commercial Communication forms part of a number of consultations which the Authority is currently conducting.
