MGA Threatens to Revoke AMGO iGaming Malta’s License for Regulatory Breaches


Related stories

Attention all gaming industry stakeholders: the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has issued a stern warning to AMGO iGaming Malta, placing their B2C gaming license under critical scrutiny. In a move underscoring the stringent regulatory environment of online gaming, the MGA’s spotlight on regulatory breaches could lead to significant ramifications for the operator known for running a suite of popular gaming sites.

In a decisive regulatory stance, the MGA is set to potentially revoke the B2C gaming license of AMGO iGaming Malta due to multiple regulatory breaches.

With renowned sites like Gigapotti.com and Dragonaraonline.com under its umbrella, AMGO iGaming Malta’s influence in the online gaming sphere is substantial. However, the MGA’s recent findings point to a concerning disregard for essential compliance regulations—a matter not taken lightly by authorities.

The MGA’s enforcement of strict adherence to gaming regulations exemplifies the importance of a secure and fair gaming environment. As AMGO faces a pressing 20-day deadline to rectify its shortcomings, the industry is reminded of the critical nature of compliance and player protection.

For AMGO iGaming Malta, the immediate task is clear: address the lapses, fulfill the overdue compliance fees, and realign operations with the Player Protection Directive. Failure to act could not only lead to the cancellation of its license but also set a precedent in the industry for the necessity of regulatory conformity.

The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has put AMGO iGaming Malta on notice, flagging a potential cancellation of their B2C gaming license after identifying three critical regulatory infringements. The operator, a key player in online casinos and sports betting, manages various sites that are now at risk due to non-compliance.

According to the MGA, AMGO’s contraventions include not settling the annual license fee for the period from November 22, 2022, to November 22, 2023, summing up to €13,915, and failing to adhere to stipulated compliance fee deadlines—breaching Regulation 3(1)(a) and (b), as well as Regulation 6 of the Gaming Licence Fees Regulations.

Furthermore, Article 38 of the Player Protection Directive has been compromised, pointing to AMGO’s shortcomings in upholding commitments to its players—a serious offense in the realm of consumer trust and safety.

With a 20-day period to deliver a convincing written response to the MGA, AMGO iGaming Malta is at a critical juncture. It must not only clear outstanding fees with accrued interest but also demonstrate stringent alignment with Player Protection Regulations. The shadow of last week’s B2C license cancellation of Arabmillionaire looms large, exemplifying the MGA’s unwavering commitment to regulatory enforcement and the high stakes for AMGO should it fail to comply.
