Today it was announced that the Malta Gaming Authority and Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, with both groups working together to beat illegal gambling activities within their markets.
The two jurisdictions are going to be working together to make sure that illegal activities aren't being conducted within their countries. The Netherlands is working to integrate a regulated online market, and Malta is long-established as a regulator. They'll work to help protect players from addiction and share information related to illicit operators as well as policy issues.
"Our relationship and cooperation with Kansspelautoriteit has already yielded tangible results in the past, and with this MoU, apart from formalising such a relationship, a stronger collaboration at an international level is also ensured," said MGA CEO Heathcliff Farrugia.
KSA Chairman Rene Jansen also commented, noting: "These MoUs are a solid basis to share knowledge, to cooperate, and to smoothly exchange information. At the same time operators will be receiving a clear signal that hands of regulators will be joined internationally."
