The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has launched an online platform for B2C gaming operators to enable more efficient reporting on suspicious betting.

The Suspicious Betting Reporting Mechanism (SBRM) allows Malta-licensed operators to fulfil the obligations imposed by the Authority’s Guidance Paper in relation to Suspicious Betting Reporting Requirements and Other Sports Integrity Matters.

The Guidance Paper indicates that B2C Malta-licensed operators that offer betting on sporting events are to report suspicious betting via a specific portal to the MGA.

Although the Paper stipulated that the mechanism must officially be made available by 1st January 2021, the MGA announced that the Sports Integrity Unit made the SBRM available to all eligible operators on the 23rd of November to enable a smoother transition and to allow time to make any necessary changes prior to the official obligation date.
