The MGA website has a Register where players can find information about the licensees. There are some scam casinos that place the MGA logo at the bottom of their main page without actually holding a license. In such cases, the MGA posts updates informing players that a certain casino must not be associated with the Malta Gaming Authority.
Becoming a MGA licensee is easier said than done. The casinos need to apply for a license, pay the respective application fees. Then, the MGA either approves or rejects the application. A company that can afford a Malta license is considered financially stable and the risk of unpaid winnings is lower compared to the risk one takes when playing at an offshore casino. We, at CorrectCasinos, often remind our readers that playing at an unlicensed casino can result in a serious money loss and recommend playing at casinos that have stood the test of time.
