The partnership between the two companies started with V Bets in November 2007, which were followed by the Single Leg races within the next year.  This, enhanced Maltco offerings of live sports-betting as well as an expanded games portfolio populated by tens of thousands of players requires best-of-breed international content and live feeds that can be enjoyed by all Maltese enthusiasts in all 230 Maltco agents.
