The Malta Gaming Authority has cancelled a further licence, the second this month, as the regulator informs Asap Italia of the notice this week.

Directed to proceed with the cancellation process and to suspend all gaming operations with immediate effect, the MGA also stipulates that a notice must be displayed on the ASAP Italia offerings informing all players of the ruling.

Consumers concerned with outstanding payments are asked to contact the regulator, submitting full name, address, date of birth, copy of passport or ID card, telephone number, description of product used, user name and a screenshot of their balance or any pending cashouts.

Vowing not to release any further information to not compromise any further investigations, the MGA said: “The Authority hereby notifies that any websites operated by Asap Italia SRL or associated with Asap Italia SRL, and which make reference to the authority or the above-quoted licence is not approved to be operational by the authority.

“Due to the cancellation of the licence, Asap Italia SRL is therefore not authorised to continue conducting gaming by means of distance communications under an authority licence.”

Earlier this month the Malta Gaming Authority cancelled the gaming licence of Wish Me Luck following a suspension issued to the company in April, under which the company was instructed to submit all data and documentation requested by the regulator.

Following a direction to indefinitely suspend all gaming operations, cease to register new players or accept any deposits on the licence, the MGA has now proceed with full cancellation, the process of which Wish Me Luck has been directed to proceed with.

Following on from removing the licences of Triton Gaming and Neptune Entertainment earlier in the year, the authority stresses that no further information is to be released in order to not compromise any potential pending investigation.
