Background Information

MALTCO LOTTERIES Limited has an exclusive licence to operate all National Lottery games in Malta. The company is currently operating most of the games which previously fell under the responsibility of the Department of Public Lotto. These games include the Super 5 lottery, the Lotto, and instant lotteries (Scratchers). In the coming months a number of new games will also be offered.
The licence was issued by the Ministry of Finance (Article 26 (3) of the Lotteries and Other Games Act, 2001). Besides privatising the national lotteries, the Act also paved the way for the establishment of the Lotteries and Gaming Authority, which regulates the industry.
MALTCO was set up in 2004 with a 73% shareholding by INTRALOT S.A. and the remaining 27% is owned by high profile Maltese businessmen .
INTRALOT is a global leader in the design, development, operation, and support of integrated games and transaction processing systems. The company currently ranks third on revenues amongst integrated lottery systems suppliers worldwide.
