bSupporter breached regulations related to licence payments and compliance reporting
The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) announced yesterday that it cancelled bSupporter’s B2C gaming service licence because the company breached regulations related to licence payments and compliance reporting.
The company was ordered by the MGA to directly halt all gaming operations and forbid the registration of new players. MGA also said that they ordered bSupporter to not accept any new deposits from players and must refund money standing to the credit of players.
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.
MGA said that bSupporter breached regulation nine of Malta’s Gaming Compliance and Enforcement Regulations, specifically paragraphs C and 1. Paragraph 1 refers to a licence-holder failing to pay any relevant annual licence fees, while paragraph C relates to filing Compliance Contribution Reports with the MGA.
bSupporter had been operating its bSupporter.club and bSupporter.com sites under the MGA licence. The MGA added that the ruling could be subject to an appeal.
Earlier this year, the MGA suspended BetElephant’s B2C service licence for failing to submit its interim financial statements for 2019 and also cancelled Pick Mister Limited’s B2C gaming service licence after the online operator failed to pay its licence fees for 2019.
Furthermore, the MGA suspended Stakers Limited’s B2C gaming service licence on 10 March after the GB Gambling Commission took a similar decision.
