The Malta Gaming Authority has cancelled the licenses of online operators Neptune Entertainment and Triton Gaming, stating the entities must shut down all gaming services.
No reasons were issued as to why the decision has been made, however both sites must now publish notices appraising customers of the fact, applicable to both home and affiliate domains.
“Neptune Entertainment Limited has been directed to proceed with the cancellation process of the Authorisation, and to suspend all gaming operations with immediate effect,” said a statement on the MGA website.
A separate statement added Triton Gaming is “not authorised to continue conducting gaming by means of distance communications under an Authority licence.”
The twin cancellation follows the February announcement by the MGA that it would annul the licenses of both Bet Service Group and World of Bets, shortly before suspending the approvals granted to Betixx and BTM Entertainment.
In all cases, the authority declined to comment further on the procedure “in order not to compromise any investigations that may need to be performed by the Authority and/or any other competent authority.”
Any consumers affected by the shutdown are able to contact the MGA regarding outstanding payments by providing valid ID and a screenshot of their balance.
