Dorobet loses MGA licence

25th February 2020

The Malta Gaming Authority has cancelled the gaming licence it had awarded to Dorobet Ltd, based in St Julian’s

The cancellation of the B2B gaming service licence awarded in 2005, became effective as of 21st February 2020.

Dorobet Ltd is therefore no longer authorised to carry out any gaming operations, register new players or accept new customer deposits. However, it is required to retain and provide all registered players with access to their player accounts, and to refund all funds standing to the credit of players in line with the applicable law.

The gaming watchdog said the sanction was imposed upon Dorobet LTD for breaching the rules on three counts: it failed to comply with an order issued by the MGA; it failed to comply with one or more applicable obligations in terms of any regulatory instrument or any other applicable law of Malta; and it did not pay in a timely manner all amounts due to the regulator.

The decision is subject to appeal.


Bureau CEO Joe Tanti points out that the Maltese economy and businesses have much to gain or lose from the outcome of talks between Brussels and London.
