The Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority has announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario, which will help the two regulators exchange information.
In addition to the sharing of information, the MoU contains applicant eligibility assessments and compliance and regulatory assurances when it comes to gaming.
The agreement also has other possible cooperation between the two governing bodies, including joint, cooperative or collaborative inspections, investigations and enforcement activities. Other possibilities include employee exchange and duplication of requirements and controls and server locations.
The LGA also inked a MoU with FIFA's internal agency on sport integrity, in which the two bodies will work to protect the integrity of soccer matches and sports betting. Under the agreement the LGA will work to fight match fixing and illegal betting as described by the FIFA Early Warning System GmBH.
Commenting on the agreement Malta's Minister of FInance, Economy, and Industry Tonio Fenech said: "A collaborative agreement between the LGA and FIFA reflects the importance that the Maltese Legislation places on game fairness in all senses."
