bSupporter loses Malta licence over multiple breaches
The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has cancelled bSupporter’s B2C gaming service licence after ruling that it breached regulations related to licence payments and compliance reporting.
bSupporter had been operating its bSupporter.club and bSupporter.com sites under the licence, but has now been ordered by the MGA to halt all gaming operations, including registering new players and accepting new deposits.
The MGA also informed bSupporter that it must retain and provide all registered players with access to their accounts, as well as refund all monies standing to the credit of players.
Giving its reasons for the decision the MGA, said bSupporter breached regulation nine of Malta’s Gaming Compliance and Enforcement Regulations, specifically paragraphs C and I.
Paragraph I refers to a licence-holder failing to pay any relevant annual licence or compliance contribution fees, while paragraph C relates to filing Compliance Contribution Reports with the MGA.
The MGA added that the ruling could be subject to an appeal.
Earlier this month, the MGA suspended BetElephant’s B2C service licence for failing to submit its interim financial statements for 2019.
On 26 March, the MGA also cancelled Pick Mister Limited’s B2C gaming service licence after the online operator failed to pay its licence fees for 2019.
In addition, the MGA suspended Stakers Limited’s B2C gaming service licence on 10 March after the GB Gambling Commission took a similar decision.
