SiGMA to attract thousands to iGaming hub
SiGMA, otherwise known as the Summit of iGaming Malta, is set to be held in the Mediterranean attracting thousands of iGaming businesses, casino heads, and spectators from all across the globe. The annual event features over 12, 000 iGaming delegates and creates a massive hype around the gaming industry.
Now considered to be the largest event in the iGaming niche, SiGMA has rapidly doubled its following in just 3 short years, granting the event a force to be known to all in the industry with a massive success rate exceeding the 2017 event. In November 2017, SiGMA had an attendance roster of almost 8000 delegates which included, but not limited to 200 exhibitors, a whole host of event sponsors and a number of start-up companies all in attendance to attend conferences with some of the biggest gaming giants CEO’s, CPO’s and CTO’s. The event held a year ago has set a path for 2018, with anyone interested being able to book a pass online.
Due to the massive following SiGMA has garnered over the past 3 years, the SiGMA Start-up Pitch, which has potential to land new businesses with lucrative investment offers, has been limited to a total of 3 minutes which is followed by a 7 minute interview with potential investors. The top 3 start-ups to qualify are awarded with SiGMA perks, exclusive to the finalists and at no additional cost.
Between all the beneficial conferences created to bring entrepreneurs together, there is a sequence of additional events, creating a celebratory buzz anticipated by all in attendance.

The Mediterranean, beautiful on its own, is home to more than 300 gaming companies and several licensing and regulatory boards. Before becoming a massive casino tourist capital, it was known for its historic sites, now enjoyed by the gaming tourism market. Since online gambling has experienced massive popularity, Malta too expanded and grew economically through permitting online casino operators the purchase of gambling licenses.
Malta is the ultimate gaming hub for operators to purchase licenses since the legislation and the Income Tax Act have worked together to allow global companies the authority to operate their iGaming businesses.
Apart from this, Malta also remains one of the biggest tourist attractions among casino operators. Known as the world’s iGaming Capital, it only makes logical sense that all casino entrepreneurs and established gaming brands, developers, and technologies congregate here to interact and trade ideas to improve the gambling market across the world.
