I'm pretty sure the italian mafia infiltrated the malta gambling scene, but maybe in the bricks and mortar side to launder cash, it's right next door to italy/sicily so would be very strange the mafia not getting interested in a huge gambling industry next door.

edit: plus there was that journalist who was killed in a car bomb in 2017 Daphne Caruana Galizia

Well journalists are fair game...
That poor one who was killed was killed by someone pretty ruthless and powerful.
Not the little innocent slot loving island we all think

No. Your all free to play wherever you desire.
Just saying I played at the above for over ten years, cashouts well over 10k many times and never a bit of hassle.
Just food for thought.

ok, let’s get this right - you’ve played well over 10K at the above mentioned casinos and never been asked for SOW .... do you really think that’s right from a responsible point of view ?

Couldn’t give a monkeys as long as what Ive won is paid to me.

Cashouts were well over 10k.

There was no mention of deposits at all so not sure what you mean by the 'you've played well over 10k' reference.

I've deposited well over 10k at various casinos (not at once, but have done numerous £500 ones in a day), including some Maltese ones and never had to provide SoW to them. I think its a matter of time with a couple of them before I do. I'll be surprised if I do at any UK Bookie site.
I think its fine on my play, account history, my style of play and deposit sizes.

My reply was to Nik...there was no ambiguity that I can see in your post. You said cashouts. Nik appeared to believe you meant deposits.

Rude much? Why should I review all the posts? I was commenting on ONE particular post, which didn't mention any deposits, just cashouts, but which you appeared to believe meant deposits.

As I said...rude much?

Don’t you think that in order to make all these 10k Cashouts he should first deposit ???

Yes, that's known thing long time ago. Was just more curious about statement that 99% of casinos are owned or controlled by mafia, even you would categorized all Russian people be connected to mafia which is quite strong statement, it's still quite long way to 99% of casinos run by mafia.

If going through ownerships of these companies, all names to be connected to mafia is quite a news.

Mafia wouldn't want to draw attention to themselves by trying to infiltrate every casino. That's just going to attract 'heat from the cops' [to paraphrase need for speed].

It would be interesting to find out how many gambling licences had been revoked by the MGA and UKGC over the years due to a person connected to the business being viewed as unfit or serious concerns over the origins of the finance to create the business. You'd expect a few to happen from time to time.

That was never the issue.

Playford7 said he had played for over 10 years, and his cashouts were over 10k. You were the one who linked that statement to responsible gambling, by the 'you've played well over 10k' comment.

A low roller could have deposited 20GBP a week for 10 years, and would have 'played well over 10k', which means that they should also be 'investigated' by the casino and issued with a SOW, according to your parameters.

Oh wait...I haven't read every single post, so I haven't the right to comment. :rolleyes:
