FOUNDATION'S BACKGROUND

The Responsible Gaming Foundation was founded on the 18th February 2014 by the then Parliamentary Secretary for Competitiveness and Economic Growth Edward Zammit Lewis and by the then Social Solidarity Minister Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca. The requirement for an independent Foundation emerged following the debate in Parliament on the amendments of the Lotteries and Other Games Act (Cap.438 of the Laws of Malta) to introduce regulations governing land-based gaming parlours.
