In the first edi­tion of the Malta Gam­ing Awards, Maltco Lot­ter­ies, Malta's na­tional lottery brand, has been awarded the pres­ti­gious Malta Gam­ing Award for Cor­po­rate Re­spon­si­bil­ity of the Year 2016 against stiff op­po­si­tion from fel­low fi­nal­ists LeoVe­gas and Uni­bet,

Maltco Lot­ter­ies were selected as the com­pany with the strong­est com­mit­ment to Cor­po­rate Re­spon­si­bil­ity, a key part of the Maltco Lot­ter­ies op­er­at­ing prin­ci­ple.

Maltco Lot­ter­ies is cer­ti­fied by the World Lottery As­so­ci­a­tion’s Re­spon­si­ble Gam­ing Frame­work and by the Euro­pean Lot­ter­ies Re­spon­si­ble Gam­ing Stan­dards, the high­est stan­dards at­tain­able in the global gam­ing in­dus­try. Maltco Lot­ter­ies has led the stan­dards in the lo­cal gam­ing in­dus­try to en­sure that ev­ery­one work­ing with the Maltco port­fo­lio of games is fully con­ver­sant with Re­spon­si­ble Gam­ing prin­ci­ples as ad­vo­cated by the com­pany.

The Malta Gam­ing Award for Cor­po­rate Re­spon­si­bil­ity of the Year 2016 took place the evening be­fore SiGMA16, dur­ing the Malta Gam­ing Week. The or­gan­is­ers said that three fea­tures make th­ese Awards unique, be­ing that firstly, nom­i­nees must have a strong con­nec­tion with Malta, se­condly that all pro­ceeds from this event will go to char­ity, and fi­nally the awards will be held dur­ing the Malta Gam­ing Week.

The event was hosted by Liver­pool le­gend John Barnes and at­tended by the guest of hon­our, Pres­i­dent Marie Louise Coleiro Preca. The first edi­tion fea­tured a small num­ber of awards, all of which have a spe­cial con­nec­tion with the gam­ing ecosys­tem in Malta.

A spokesper­son for the com­pany said that they are proud to have been selected as Malta's num­ber one on Cor­po­rate Re­spon­si­bil­ity for 2016. All of the team at Maltco Lot­ter­ies, in­clud­ing our 250 part­ners and agents, wish to con­grat­u­late all of the nom­i­nees who were selected by the or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tee, the judg­ing panel and the in­dus­try.
