The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) recently signed a data-sharing agreement with the Darts Regulation Authority (DRA), which is responsible for globally regulating the sport of darts. The DRA is also responsible for overseeing the writing the regulations concerning darts for professional as well as amateur ranks.
According to Nigel Mawer QPM, Chairman of the DRA the authority plays an important role in keeping the sport safe and free from corruption, fraud and match-fixing.
Its partnership with the MGA will help it further to keep the sport protected. This is a strong message send across the world that the DRA is capable of identifying and prosecuting players who breach betting rules and ruin the spirit of the sport.
Antonio Zerafa, Sport Integrity Manager of the MGA stated that the coronavirus pandemic has changed the foundations of sports betting. However, the regulator’s ambitions have not been diminished even in these trying times.
The MGA aims to meet and partner with new sport governing bodies such as the DRA. With the help of the newly signed agreement, the authority looks forward to helping the DRA investigate cases of corruption related to sports betting.
