The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) refers to reports published in sections of the media in relation to preliminary investigations that have been concluded by the Italian authorities regarding certain Italian nationals.

The Authority would like to clarify that there is no connection between the MGA and these individuals, and none of them form any part of the ownership structures of online gaming companies licensed by the MGA. The Authority confirms that none of these persons are directors, shareholders, ultimate beneficial owners or key persons of any MGA licence-holder.

The Authority is liaising with local and Italian authorities and will continue to monitor any further developments.
