The Malta Gaming Authority has cancelled the authorisation for bSupporter Limited (MGA/B2C/461/2017) w.e.f 28th April 2020 with respect to the breach of regulation 10 of the Gaming Compliance and Enforcement Regulations (S.L. 583.06).
Accordingly, bSupporter Limited will no longer be able to run as a gaming operator, register new players or accept deposits from them. However, the company is obliged to retain its old players and let them access their accounts. It must also refund all the credit amount to its existing players as per the law.
The cancellation of bSupporter Limited’s authorisation comes after the company breached the following rules under regulation 9(1) of the Gaming Compliance and Enforcement Regulations:
- Failure to comply with the obligations regarding regulatory instrument and applicable laws of Malta after the non-submission of the Compliance Contribution Reports for January and February 2020 within the stipulated deadline.
- Failure to pay dues pertaining to relevant annual licence fees and/or compliance contribution fees in a timely manner.
The MGA’s decision to cancel bSupporter Limited’s authorisation is, however, subject to appeal under Article 43 of the Gaming Act (Cap. 583).
