Why do BetFair Games (regulated in Malta, E.U.) have a timer on games?

Malta&#8217-s Lotteries and Gaming Authority is a stricter regulator than the UK&#8217-s Gambling Commission on that point. The Malta regulator mandates BetFair Games to display a timer on their games. The timer is visible on screen at all times, and, when the countdown expires, play is interrupted to provide the customer with a reminder of how long they&#8217-ve been playing. (If it didn&#8217-t interrupt play, there wouldn&#8217-t be much point in having the countdown, of course.)
