    According to two Belgrade newspaper reports dated yesterday, Serbian police in an operation they called “Atlantis” arrested a group of foreign nationals that they say were running an online gambling operation in Serbia without permission.

    One of the sites allegedly said to be operating in Serbia and has since been seized is the popular GoWildCasino. Although the site publicized it was located in Malta it has allegedly been operating from Serbia under the name “Rok IT servisiz” according to Serbian Police.

    The police claim the site has allegedly been operating without the approval of the State Lottery of Serbia and the Ministry of Finance. Computer equipment such as disk drives, usb memory sticks as well as entire computers has been seized in the raid.

    As of today, their site is still online and their licensing stated on the site says,

    GoWild Casino is a registered and licensed company in Malta. GoWild Gaming is licensed by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta. Gambling Licensee – Class 1 remote gaming licence, Gambling Licence Number – LGA/CL1/474/2008, Regulatory Authority.

    Malta began licensing online gambling sites in 2000 under the Public Lotto Ordinance. Since then, the Lotteries and Gaming Authority (LGA) has developed its policies and procedures of remote gambling operations.

    Companies that are granted a Maltese license are not permitted to take bets from the island’s citizens.

    In September 2007, Malta made the United Kingdom’s “white list” of countries that match England’s stringent gaming regulations. As a result, the number of licensees in Malta has seen a steady rise.

    Currently however their live chat that is usually run 24/7 says:

    Dear Customer, As part of our ongoing affords to improve the services to our clients, we are in a process of upgrading our communication and security systems. We apologize for any inconvenience. Kindly leave us a message and we will get back to you as soon as we are back on. *Please note that there will be no effect, whatsoever to your game-play. Good Luck with your bets!

    Currently the only sources available to confirm this story is 2 Belgrade newspaper articles: Article 1 and Article 2
