ITALIAN GAMING OPERATORS GIVE UP MALTESE LICENCES AFTER ANTI-MAFIA PROBE

Calvin Ayre on 13th March reported that Malta’s online gambling regulator has parted company with several of its Italy-based licensees following a probe into their activities.  This follows a probe announced in February of 7 Italian licensees, asking each of them to provide answers to 20 specific questions regarding their operations, including their AML protocols – following the Phoenix International case, the latest in a series of Mafia-connected cases linked to Malta-licensed gambling sites.
