Mobile gaming company has announced it will be the main sponsor of the 2017 Malta Pride.

The 2017 Malta Pride week will take place between 2 and 10 September, with the iconic pride parade and street concert held on Saturday, 9 September in Valletta. The chosen theme for the 2017 Malta Pride is 'Celebrate Love, Life and Diversity' and the programme of events will celebrate Malta as being the most LGBTIQ friendly country in Europe (according to ILGA Rainbow Index) and the newly enacted Marriage Equality Bill. Furthermore, a number of seminars and workshops will promote further awareness about LGBTIQ health related issues.


This year Malta Pride will also unveil an 82-foot Giant Rainbow Flag, of which LeoVegas sponsored the orange stripe.

LeoVegas runs the award winning mobile casino, live casino and sportsbook and has offices in Malta, Italy and Sweden.

Roderick Spiteri Schillig, Head of Communications at LeoVegas, said, "We are proud to be sponsoring the largest event of its kind in Malta. The main goal of this collaboration is to show LeoVegas' commitment in embracing diversity and equality in our workforce.

Our vision is to create the greatest gaming experience and be the number one mobile gaming. Today we're over 300 employees at the Malta office and I believe that one reason for our success has been the diversity of our workforce - be it race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, ability, or sexual orientation."

"I'm delighted that employers such as LeoVegas have managed to create what is an exemplary inclusive workplace that truly celebrates equality and diversity.
