Malta.- The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has launched its new suspicious betting reporting tool. 

The Suspicious Betting Reporting Mechanism (SBRM) allows licensees to report suspicious activity to the MGA’s dedicated Sports Integrity Unit. 

The platform is now available to all operators that offer sports betting under a Maltese licence. 

It will be obligatory to use the platform to report suspicious activity from January 1, but the regulator is encouraging operators to begin using the system beforehand to allow for any tweaks prior to the New Year.

The regulator published new suspicious betting reporting requirements in May following a consultation with operators.

Last month, Heathcliff Farrugia announced he was stepping down as chief executive of the Malta Gaming Authority after two-and-half years in the post.
