Malta regulator cancels two licences

12 March 2019

The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has cancelled gaming licences for Neptune Entertainment and Triton Gaming with immediate effect, with the pair ordered to shut down all operations as a result.

Neptune Entertainment has been ordered to stop gaming operations and publish a notice on its website that informing customers that its authorisation in Malta is no longer valid.

The MGA has also stated that the ruling applies to all websites associated with Neptune Entertainment, which must also cease operating.

The regulator has issued a similar notice to Triton Gaming, which also applies to all sites associated with the operator.

The MGA has said it will not release any more information about the rulings so as not to compromise any investigations that may need to be undertaken by itself or other authorities.

Consumers can contact the regulator for information on outstanding payments. Players are requested to send their full name, address, date of birth, telephone number, a copy of their passport, or ID Card, Bet Service Group username, a description of the product in question and a screenshot of their balance.

The latest rulings come after the MGA last month also cancelled licences for both Bet Service Group and World-of-bets.eu, and also suspended Betixx until further notice. BTM Entertainment has also recently been suspended in Malta.

Meanwhile, the MGA has moved to distance itself from 365-bets.com, declaring that it has no connection with the website.

In a statement, the MGA as said that any reference to the regulator or a gaming licence said to be issued by the MGA as stated by 365-bets.com are “false and misleading”.
