The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has suspended Lucky Dino Gaming’s B2C gaming service licence with immediate effect after ruling that it breached certain regulations in the country.
Lucky Dino Gaming has been ordered to halt all of its online gambling operations in Malta, including registering new users and accepting new customer deposits.
However, Lucky Dino Gaming must ensure it allows registered players to access their accounts so that they can withdraw funds.
According to the MGA, Lucky Dino Gaming breached regulation 9 (1) (C) of the country’s Compliance and Enforcement Regulations. The MGA did not go into full detail about the breach, but did state that the operator did not file certain key function documentation and also failed to inform the regulator after adding content from new game providers.
Lucky Dino Gaming, which runs the Olaspill.com, Casinojefe.com, Luckydino.com and Kalevalakasino.com websites in Malta, may be able to appeal against the suspension.
The ruling comes after the MGA last week entered into a new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Dutch regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA).
The partnership aims to tackle illegal activities in the Malta and Dutch gambling markets, with the two authorities set to work together to prevent and tackle gambling-related criminal activities.
