Malta's gaming authority has suspended the gaming license of the Everleaf Poker Network following the group's failure to play players.
A statement released by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority read: “Everleaf Gaming Limited is not authorized to continue conducting gaming by means of distance communications under an Authority License.”
The suspension of Everleaf's license means that the group may not accept player deposits or offer any games that claim to be licensed by the island regulator.
Malta has long been criticized for its lack of action against operators who have been slow to pay players or also have had other issues. The action comes after Malta thought that Everleaf was getting back on a pace to pay player accounts, although that certainly proved not to be the case.
No comment was made by Everleaf on the matter as of press time.
