MGA launched platform for suspicious betting reporting

25 Nov 2020

mga -screenshotThe Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), the well-respected regulatory body, has introduced a new online platform that will allow bookmakers to report suspicious betting activities.

The Suspicious Betting Reporting Mechanism (SBRM), part of MGA’s Sports Integrity Unit, gives operators the flexibility to report malevolent activities via a specific portal to the MGA.

The new platform will officially start its operation from 1 January 2021 onwards, but it has been introduced earlier so as to make the transition period smoother.

The Sports Integrity Unit, established in August 2019, aims to gather information relating to suspicious betting. Its SBRM platform comes after the published report in May this year for its survey: “Consultation Paper on Suspicious Betting Reporting Requirements & Other Sports Integrity Matters”.

It is also worth noting that MGA has strengthened its sports integrity network in 2020, having signed strong data-sharing partnerships with many well-known sporting bodies. To name a few: International Cricket Council (ICC), the Swedish Football Association (SFA), the World Professional Billiards & Snooker Association (WPBSA), and last but not least the Darts Regulation Authority (DRA).
