Malta regulator cancels Dorobet’s licence

21 February 2020

The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has cancelled Dorobet’s B2C gaming service licence after ruling that the online gambling operator breached rules related to regulatory payments.

Effective from today (21 February), the cancellation means Dorobet is no longer authorised to carry out gaming operations, register new players or accept new customer deposits.

The regulator has also ordered Dorobet to allow players to access their accounts in order to make withdrawals, as well as refund any monies owed to customers.

The MGA ruled that Dorobet breached regulation 9 (1) of the Gaming Compliance and Enforcement Regulations, specifically paragraphs B, C and L

Paragraph B references failure to comply with an order issued by the MGA, while paragraph C relates to a licensee not adhering to regulatory obligations or other applicable laws in Malta.

Paragraph L, meanwhile, refers to when a licensee has not paid a fee to the MGA.

Dorobet may be permitted to launch an appeal against the ruling.

Dorobet is the second gambling operator to have had it Maltese licence cancelled this month after The Daily Fantasy Football Company also had its B2C gaming service licence withdrawn.
