MGA FB

The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA)’s Sports Betting Integrity Department has altered its suspicious betting reporting requirements, most notably by making reporting rules now also apply to suppliers.

Under the new rules, suppliers will have the same obligations as operators to report any suspicious betting activity to the MGA.

Another change will be that the department will inform all licensees with any knowledge of suspicious betting activity in its possession.

Without revealing the source of the information, the Authority will now inform licensees of any instances of suspicious betting activity in relation to any event that has been adverted by said licensee.

This move aims to help operators in a number of key ways, but perhaps most notably, it wants to raise awareness of suspicious betting risks being faced across the Maltese betting sector.

Additionally, it will ensure that licensed operators are aware of suspicious betting activities taking place in the Maltese betting sector. Finally, it will allow MGA licensed operators to review their own monitoring systems and verify they have not been subject to similar activities.

The Authority also expects the new alerting process to help the sector itself, by fostering “better and wider” monitoring of suspicious betting activity taking place within the Maltese betting sector, and allowing for a holistic review and evaluation of the sports betting risks facing the sector at large.

Finally, it aims to allow for a more informed Maltese betting sector, bridging the Authority and its licensees in their collective fight against corruption in sports and sports betting.
