Lee R. - August 12, 2016

The topics covered will empower delegates with education at unseen levels.

A new highlight embedded in Malta´s upcoming three day SiGMA 2016 program from 16-18 November is the first annual iGaming Education Forum, brought to you by the Malta Gaming Authority and iGaming Academy.

Ringing Endorsement

The MGA authority´s endorsement is a major breakthrough for the iGaming Academy.

Academy Director Jaime Debono called the MGA the "gold standard” for gaming governance in the EU, furthering his organization´s goal of making Malta “synonymous with training and educational excellence.”

Advancement through Education

Debono states his company´s mission as “growing the industry through education” with this first Forum set to deliver rich content tailored for all individuals looking to achieve successful positions within iGaming. Debono called the iGaming Education Forum a “new and dynamic dimension” to the record-breaking event that SiGMA looks to be this year.

MGA Response

Malta gaming Authority Executive Chairman Joseph Cuschieri asserted that education and training represent dual goals of his organisation in the professional development of Malta´s rapidly growing gaming sector, with the Forum representing an ideal point of entry for the MGA in kind. To this end, Cuschieri further announced the establishment of a training division within the MGA which Thomas Mahoney has been nominated to head.


The iGaming Education Forum will offer attending delegates a cumulative total of 80-plus years of gaming experience in its three days by focusing on prominent areas of current relevance to the industry including Compliance, touching on AML, Anti-Fraud and Payments and Responsible Gaming; as well as specific topics such as Sportsbook, Casino and Lottery Management and eSports.


An Acquisition and Retention workshop will address the topics of Customer Relationship Management, Social Media Marketing and Affiliate Management, with all iGaming Education Forum participants also gaining free entrance to the expo.


As an educational forum, the iGaming Education Forum looks to be the most empowering portion of the SiGMA 2016 program. With delegate entrance to the main event and a ringing endorsement from MGA, this inaugural event looks like a can´t-miss opportunity.
