Malta regulator rescinds Wish Me Luck’s gaming licence

12 June 2019

The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has moved to cancel Wish Me Luck’s gaming licence, effective today (June 12).

The regulator has ordered the online raffle operator to cancel its authentication processes and suspend all gaming operations, as well as publish a notice on its site to inform customers about the ruling.

The ruling applies to all sites operated by or associated with Wish Me Luck.

Wish Me Luck initially had its licence suspended by the MGA in April, after the regulator launched an investigation into the business.

Customers with any outstanding payments due from the operator are advised to contact the MGA via email, stating their full name, address, date of birth and user name on Wish Me Luck.

The MGA will not be releasing any further information about the decision at this stage so as not to compromise any investigations that may need to be carried out by itself or other authorities.

Wish Me Luck becomes the latest operator to lose its licence in Malta after the MGA also cancelled gaming licences for both Neptune Entertainment and Triton Gaming, as well as Bet Service Group and, earlier this year.
