The government of Malta decided to enforce a national level repression on illegal iGaming platforms. Following the anti-Mafia actions executed by the government of Italy, the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) decided to smother the activities of online gaming platforms allegedly operated by unauthorised Italian groups. The government of Malta declared the decision at the weekend, owing to the commitment of authorities to back up the Italian’s anti-Mafia operations.

The Calvin Ayre’s report states that the Executive Chairman of  Malta Gaming Authority, Joseph Cuschieri emphasised that the governmental department would “start a collaboration” with Italy’s Anti-Mafia Commission and any other authority that “needs to know the activity of Italian gaming operators in Malta.”

While the MGA’s official statement revealed: “The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) is set to launch an investigation into all of its Italian online licensees as it attempts to root out connections between the island and illegal betting shops in Italy. The project is the first stage in a concerted crackdown on Italian gambling businesses based in Malta, high-ranking Maltese sources told Gambling Compliance.”

The statement concludes as: “Malta has grown increasingly concerned about damage to its already faltering reputation after numerous links between Italian organised crime and online gambling companies with Maltese licences emerged during the past few years.”
