St8.io, the next-generation content aggregator, has been granted a recognition notice by the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), as it continues to expand its worldwide reach.

The recognition notice, which gives the same rights as a standard MGA B2B licence, is based upon St8’s existing licence in Romania, which was granted by the Romanian National Gambling Office last year.

St8 will now be able to provide its platform within the MGA’s globally-renowned framework, marking the latest step in the aggregator’s rapid growth since launching less than two years ago.

“Receiving this approval from the MGA was a key strategic goal for St8,” said St8.io CEO Vladimir Negine. “This will enable us to provide our platform to operators in MGA-regulated markets worldwide, maintaining the highest levels of player protection along the way. Alongside the licence we received in Romania, we’re now able to support partners in even more markets. Our plan is to continue to expand our licensed footprint in 2024 and beyond.”

St8’s innovative approach to content aggregation has already earned praise from operators and game suppliers looking for a solution that replaces manual work with cutting-edge technology.

A key part of why operators and suppliers trust St8 is because of the stability and security the platform guarantees, particularly around confidential information.

The St8 platform also delivers deep integrations, meaning those operators don’t miss out on additional functionality from games studios.

Australia has enforced an online gambling credit card ban, meaning that players can no longer use them as a payment method.

Responsible Wagering Australia (RWA) and its members have been strong supporters of this measure and have worked with the Commonwealth Government and the financial services industry since 2021 to deliver this credit card ban.

Responsible Wagering Australia CEO Kai Cantwell said that this change was much needed, as Australians should only be gambling with money that they have.

“This is an important measure to protect customers, making it easier for people to stay in control of their own gambling behaviour,” Mr Cantwell said.

“It will complement the existing offering of safer gambling account management tools by RWA members.

“RWA and its members support the extension of this measure to all forms of gambling that have been exempted from the ban such as lotteries and keno.

“If consumer protection measures aren’t consistent across all forms of gambling it will incentivise vulnerable Australians to move to less-regulated types of gambling, where they are more at risk of harm.”

RWA members provide a range of tools to ensure people can gamble safely, many of which have been adopted by the Commonwealth Government as part of the National Consumer Protection Framework (NCPF).

“The NCPF is expected to be evaluated shortly and we look forward to engaging in this process to ensure that consumer protection tools are fit-for-purpose and support a safe and sustainable regulated gambling environment,” Mr Cantwell said.

Ukraine Regulator KRAIL Blocks 371 Illegal Gambling Sites

The Ukrainian Commission for the Regulation of Gambling and Lotteries (KRAIL) has announced that it has blocked 371 unlicensed gambling websites. It said joint action with the security service led to the issue of Order No. 451/2256, which instructs service providers to block the domains using Domain Name System (DNS) servers.

KRAIL said that during April and May it issued 1000 orders to limit access to domain names and subdomains.

While KRAIL remains operational, Ukraine’s parliament voted in April to disband the regulator. There had been criticism of the regulator’s collegial structure, which requires at least five of its six members to be present for meetings to be valid. Amid disruption caused by military service following the Russian invasion, this has often led to meetings being cancelled and long delays for licence applications.

There will be a second reading of the bill before it can be signed by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. The liquidation of KRAIL would put gambling regulation under the digital transformation ministry until a new regulator is established.
