A football tournament made up of teams from the iGaming community has raised €4,000 for a Maltese cancer charity.

The Blexr Cup took place on Saturday 21 September at the Luxol football grounds in Pembroke, with five-a-side teams from ten companies across the local iGaming industry battling it out for the trophy in aid of Hospice Malta.

The hospice, based in Balzan, offers palliative care for patients who are dealing with terminal cancer.

The tournament was organised by Blexr, a performance marketing agency based in Sliema which provides lead generation for companies operating in iGaming, forex and sportsbook. It employs more than 70 people, both Maltese and those from overseas.

This latest fundraising event is part of the company’s ongoing support for charitable causes in Malta. The money raised came from the teams’ entry fees, as well as donations and extra in-house fundraising carried out by these companies from the iGaming community.

The companies who entered the tournament were Blexr, Raketech, Poker Stars, BetClic, Kindred, ComeOn!, Broadwing, LeoVegas, Socios powered by Chilliz and Broadwing.

The winners were Tipico, beating BetClic 2-0 in the final, and a cheque for the amount raised was then handed over to Marisa Camilleri from Hospice Malta.

Blexr’s CEO Ian McDonnell said: “We’re delighted to support Hospice Malta and promote health and fitness through our Blexr Cup tournament.

“The hospice does really important work and it’s great to see the iGaming community come together to raise money for them, while at the same time playing out our friendly rivalry on the football pitch.”

Kenneth Delia, General Manager of Hospice Malta said: “I wish to thank Blexr for organising this football tournament, and also all the companies who took part.

“For the past 30 years, Hospice Malta’s primary role has been the provision and promotion of palliative care services to patients suffering from cancer, motor-neuron disease, and other serious illnesses.

“As a voluntary non-profit organisation, Hospice Malta relies on such support to continue delivering free of charge, professional palliative care services to over 1,200 patients and their families every year.”

Compliance Updates

MGA Tightens Definition of Start-ups

MGA Tightens Definition of Start-ups
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has announced changes to the regulations on gaming license fees to narrow the definition of start-ups, potentially ramping up costs for smaller gaming businesses.

Previously, a start-up owner had to generate less than €10m in revenue from gaming or related sectors during the previous financial year, but now, such an owner must generate less than this amount over the previous 36 months.

The rule applies both to individuals who have generated more than €10m and to those who are “part of, or controlled by, a corporate group” who have generated the same.

Under the current license fee regulations, start-ups are exempt from paying the compliance contribution, which may be between €15,000 and €600,000, depending on revenue and the type of gaming services offered.

“This amendment is aimed at ensuring that undertakings classified as start-ups are truly such, whilst simultaneously not prejudicing corporate groups that were in the business many years back and wish to benefit from such an incentive by starting up again,” MGA explained.

The changes will come into effect from January 1, 2020.
