Rush Gaming’s gaming licence in Malta has been cancelled by the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), making it the first company to face deauthorization in 2024. The MGA took this action under reg. 8 (1) (f) of the Gaming Compliance and Enforcement Regulations due to Rush Gaming’s failure to comply with regulatory obligations. Despite the cancellation, the company must still provide players with access to their accounts and refund any owed funds.
Similar cases have occurred in the past year, with AMGO iGaming, SFJL Holding, and Elite24bet Casino all having their gaming licences revoked for violating Maltese gaming regulations.
The suspension comes just before Charles Mizzi takes on the role of MGA CEO, bringing with him extensive experience in finance, investment, and Maltese business. Mizzi aims to continue the Authority’s past successes and strategically guide it towards strengthening Malta’s market position. Rush Gaming has the opportunity to appeal the suspension according to article 43 of the Gaming Act.
