Malta Gaming Authority Lowers RTP

Reading Time: < 1 minute


The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has amended its Player Protection Directive to lower the minimum return to player (RTP) percentage from 92% to 85%. This will be applicable to both land-based and remote operators.

The new amendments are prepared after a closed consultation with the industry stakeholders, including consultants, business-to-consumer operators and business-to-business operators.. The discussions ranged from the RTP percentage to possible implications of the the percentage change on product offering, operations, and competitive position.

The MGA conducted a comparative analysis of RTP percentages and practises in other jurisdictions  in the EU also.

The organization is the process of publishing a policy paper that summarises the points of stakeholder discussions as well as the comparative analysis. Further amendments are on the cards, especially on protecting minors and other vulnerable persons.
