Maltco Lotteries release its Corporate Social Responsibility Publication
Maltco Lotteries, Malta’s national lottery brand, has just published its Corporate Social Responsibility Release (CSR Publication June ‘15 to June ‘16), which covers four key pillars: Responsible Gaming, Retail, Sports and Charity.
Maltco is certified by the World Lottery Association and by European Lotteries for fully applying and maintaining the Responsible Gaming framework. With this year’s theme – Society Positive – the publication highlights Maltco’s commitment to the local community. Maltco has led the standards in the local gaming industry to ensure that everyone involved in its portfolio of games is fully conversant with the principles of responsible gaming as advocated by the company.
It also contributes €50,000 towards the Responsible Gaming Fund and has undertaken an annual programme to train over 600 Maltco agents and their assistants on the subject of responsible gaming. In the CSR release, Maltco highlights its work in preventing underage play and sponsoring sporting events such as the European Week of Sports and the Malta Chess Federation, amongst many, as well as making considerable donations to charities such as L-Istrina and the Community Chest Fund.
In addition, the government’s Good Causes Fund benefits to the extent of around €600,000 a year, being the entirety of Maltco’s games unclaimed prizes. Maltco is also an active participant in the cultural life of the island, sponsoring concerts of renowned local and international singers. It has also supported business events such as the Mediterranean Leaders’ Forum.
A spokesman for Maltco said that the relevance of corporate social responsibility to the company goes much further than responsible gaming. Maltco leads a vision in Malta’s gaming industry – a vision based on the fundamental principle of being a responsible organisation, rather than just one with a responsible gaming programme.
