Finnish teen sentenced for scamming Malta gambling website

Finnish teen sentenced for scamming Malta gambling website
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

A 16-year old unidentified Finnish teenager and his parents have been convicted for exploiting a glitch on a Malta-based online gambling website to swindle a six-figure sum.

The teenager identified an embarrassing glitch in the software of the website (the website details have not been disclosed) which enabled him to cancel other users’ requests to withdraw the winnings and redirect the amount to his own online wallet.

The teenager was a minor at the time of the incident, which took place in April and May of 2017. Häme District Court slapped a relatively modest punishment of a suspended sentence of 20 months. The court also asked the teenager and his parents to pay the amount they swindled from the website – reportedly €132k and also to pay €3k as legal fees for the gambling website.

However, it is unclear whether the money that ended up in accounts belonging to his parents were included in this sum. The father and mother faced their own reckoning on Monday, receiving five-month and 60-day suspended sentences, respectively, for their role in Junior’s escapades and enjoying the forbidden fruits of his labours.

Dad was convicted of aggravated money laundering and ordered to repay €14,500 that had been transferred to his account. Mom was convicted of simple money laundering and ordered to repay €2,300 and forfeit a motorcycle worth over €5k that was obtained using the stolen cash.

All three defendants have the right to appeal their sentences, but one suspects they are just happy to have gotten off so lightly. The parents are likely equally relieved by the fact their son’s minor status prevents the court from identifying them by name, lest their son’s identity be revealed in the process.

Finally, the casino site is likely content to have been spared the embarrassment of having to cop to the fact that they were taken to the cleaners by a spotty kid who proved a better bug-catcher than their own IT squad.

SiGMA is Back and Bigger Than Ever
Reading Time: 2 minutes

TA’QALI, Malta, August 23, 2018 — 2018 has been good to SiGMA. From the launch of new ventures to a full complement of global road show events, SiGMA has never been busier.

SiGMA’s flagship show has gone from strength to strength, with last year’s summit opening its doors to over 8,000 visitors and featuring 200+ exhibitors – a record-breaking figure which saw 2016’s numbers doubled. The show offers a perfect balance of entertainment and business opportunity – providing the ideal climate for delegates in the iGaming sphere to network and debate industry trends.

SiGMA 2018 is all set to carry on this tradition of quality and, as Malta continues to position itself as a haven for industry, can expect to host more industry elites under its roof than ever.

The fifth edition of SiGMA will take place from 28th – 30th of November at the MFCC, Ta’ Qali. Positioned at the cutting edge of a very competitive industry, it has evolved into the definitive iGaming showcase. SiGMA 2018 will welcome over 400 sponsors and exhibitors, 200 industry-leading speakers and a record-breaking 12500 attendees – solidifying its reputation as a staple on the global iGaming calendar.

Tickets are still available for SiGMA’s flagship show, and for those looking to score a good deal, the Standard Pass is priced at just €80. Find more information on how you can register here.

Following the success of the previous two years, SiGMA Pitch will also be back, providing a space for innovative young start-ups to gain valuable exposure. Finalists will gain a unique opportunity to win a space on the expo floor, score valuable invites to networking events and reel in potential funding and mentoring from industry veterans.

In light of the islands’ thirst for talent, SiGMA has added a new platform to its growing repertoire – SiGMA Careers, one of the three main pillars holding up a revamped site. The recruitment tool aims to facilitate a solution to an increasing need in the industry to source quality talent. A substantial SIGMA Careers database offers recruiters a gold mine of opportunity, through which those in the iGaming sector can reach into the deep pool of untapped creativity waiting to be explored.

Bolstering this initiative will be a first-of-its-kind conference, the SiGMA Careers Convention, which will take place later this year. The convention will provide ample opportunity for networking and will feature an open talk in the form of a panel discussion.

SiGMA 2018 will also host a number of lavish global events throughout the year. From Hong Kong to Kiev, there really is no better place to enjoy making money.

Between the 11th and 12th of September, SiGMA will also take advantage of the buzzing LatAm gambling market, staging the Alpha Boot Camp in the cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires – bringing together 200 operators and 10 suppliers from across Europe for a first-edition conference.

A full calendar of iGatherings and conferences has bolstered our position as the go-to purveyors of quality events for those looking to cement their position in the iGaming sphere.
