MGA removes seven licensees from its list

16 Feb 2021

malta-gaming-authorityThe Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has announced that seven bookmakers have been removed from its list of licensees during the first half of 2020. The cancellation of these licenses occurred due to apparent violations of MGA’s rules and regulations.

From MGA’s Interim Performance Report, it is visible that up until 30 June 2020, the famous regulator issued a total of 20 notices and 11 warnings before taking any action against the violators. Nine of the bookies were fined. Two of them had their licenses suspended, while 7 of them had their permits canceled.

Among the operators that got a license cancellation in H1 of 2020 were Pick Mister and Dorobet.

On the other hand, MGA’s Performance Report also shows that during that time, the regulator issued a total of 303 new licenses, 196 of which were B2C gaming licenses and 111 of which were B2B supply licenses.

MGA also saw a rise in the number of active player accounts, which grew by 11.8% year-on-year, and reached the number of 17.2 million. In addition, the number of new player accounts also rose 12.3% to 7.6 million.
