MGA Confirms Cancellation of Rush Gaming’s License

Although the gambling watchdog did not confirm the reason for the cancellation, the operator was given the option to appeal

In January this year, the gambling regulator in Malta, the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), announced it had decided to suspend the authorization for Rush Gaming, a company that currently operates the websites and At the time the suspension was announced, the Authority explained that the company can no longer offer any gaming operations.

However, the MGA said, Rush Gaming must ensure access to all of its registered players and refund all outstanding amounts. The Authority confirmed that Rush Gaming “failed to comply with one or more applicable obligations in terms of any regulatory instrument or any other applicable law of Malta.”

Now, not unexpectedly, the MGA confirmed it has decided to cancel Rush Gaming’s license altogether. While the authority’s decision was announced on Friday, it said that it is in effect as of March 11, 2024. The cancellation of the licensee’s authorization is in line with 9 (1) (c) and 10 (1) (a) of the country’s Gaming Compliance and Enforcement Regulations, explained the MGA.

In light of the latest decision of the gambling regulator, the company was instructed to notify all of its clients about the cancellation via email. Additionally, Rush Gaming was instructed to settle all outstanding payments payable to the MGA. Finally, the operator also had to immediately remove all references to the MGA or authorization from the MGA. This requirement is in line with Article 51 of the country’s gambling regulations.

The Malta Gaming Authority has decided to cancel the authorization bearing reference number MGA/B2C/701/2019 issued to Rush Gaming Limited effective as of 11 March 2024,

The Authority Remains Vigilant

The MGA did not disclose why it has decided to cancel the authorization of Rush Gaming. Still, the gambling watchdog explained that the cancellation is subject to an appeal.

Last month, the MGA distanced itself from a famous Italian mafia figure. At the time, the gambling regulator said it wasn’t linked in any way to Antonio Ricci, a notorious figure in the criminal investigations in Italy against the ‘Ndrangheta mafia.

Besides the suspension of Rush Gaming’s license, again in January, the MGA revoked the authorization of Super7plus Limited. The agency explained that the cancellation of the authorization came after it uncovered a violation of the gambling regulations by the operator. Still, Super7plus was given the option to appeal the decision.
