SiGMA video

A viral video is making the rounds across Malta’s iGaming community depicting shocking behaviour at a prominent summit being held this week.

The footage shows two partners from Latvia-based Lucky Streak dancing inappropriately, with one man literally picking up and groping his colleague, a person of short stature – or more colloquially termed as a dwarf, surrounded by onlookers taking their own footage.

At one point, the man also strips down to his boxers, leaving little to the imagination.

The summit, SiGMA Europe, is a highly anticipated event in the iGaming calendar, with leading international businesspeople, potential investors and stakeholders of the sector in attendance. Prominent figures like Prime Minister Robert Abela and Economy and Industry Minister Silvio Schembri visited the event, however, there is absolutely no indication that they were present during the aforementioned and unfortunate spectacle.

Responding to the viral footage, the event’s founder, Eman Pulis, said “the industry deserves better”, and announced that the company, Lucky Streak, will no longer be allowed to exhibit at the conference anymore.

This latest event comes after Khalid Ali, CEO of the International Betting Integrity Association took to social media on Wednesday to express his disappointment at the “disconnect” between panel discussions focusing on safer and responsible gambling, while a particular stand displayed scantily dressed pole dancers.

While the event organisers promptly shut the stand down, some stakeholders within the industry decried the negative image such behaviour brings to the sector.

In addition, on Wednesday night, a party associated with the event by Akon, a famous musician and cryptocurrency stakeholder, had his live show shut down by the police after it emerged that COVID-19 regulations were not being adhered to.
