Esports Entertainment secures Malta licence


Esports Entertainment Group a licensed online gambling company with a focus on esports wagering and 18+ gaming, received its Gaming Service License for online pool betting from the Malta Gaming Authority.

The License, issued April 30, 2020, is effective for a 10-year term and may be renewed by MGA for further 10-year periods subject to regulatory provisions.

The country of Malta was one of the first countries in Europe to allow and regulate online gambling after first giving out a license in the year 2000. License holders benefit from onshore status in Europe, as well as, advertising across the EU.

In addition, Malta’s globally recognized and powerful regulatory system for iGaming provides our players and partners with the highest levels of trust and confidence in knowing they are dealing with an onshore jurisdiction, whose legislation is in line with applicable EU legislation and international agreements.

“Receiving our Malta gaming license is another major milestone achievement for Esports Entertainment,” commented Grant Johnson, CEO of Esports Entertainment Group. “Fresh off our announcement of a Binding LOI to acquire Argyll Entertainment last week, we are now in the early stages of executing an aggressive growth plan that contemplates both organic and acquisition growth strategies throughout 2020. This Malta License will be an important part of our growth plan.”
