The owner of Wild Sultan Casino has been slapped with a huge €2.34 million fine because of the operator offering betting services without permission.
The Malta Gaming Authority got the fine as a settlement with Wild Sultan owner Blackrock Media after an investigation found that the group was processing gambling financial services for a service in which they were not authorized. Blackrock doesn't have a Malta license, instead holding authorization from the jurisdiction of Curacao.
The MGA says that this fine shows that the regulator is taking their responsibilities seriously and will hold operators responsible for their own actions.
