MGA Suspends Pick Mister Limited's License

This story was published more than 4 years ago.

This week the Malta Gaming Authority has announced that they've suspended the gaming license of Pick Mister Limited after the company failed to pay their licensing fees.

Pick Mister runs the site and offers players skill-based games to bet on. The company didn't pay their €10,000 licensing fee in 2019, and thus the license was pulled. The MGA has ordered the site to provide access to players and to refund money to account holders as well as paying out any other money owed. Unfortunately, as of press time the PickMister site appears to be down.

Pick Mister does have the ability to appeal the ruling, although it's not known whether or not the group will plan to do so.

Malta's gaming regulator has been busy this month, having suspended the gaming license of Stakers Limited after some shady behavior was discovered by the UK Gambling Commission.

We'll update readers as more developments arise.

I believe that it's one of the silliest moves from the operator to get their license suspended. Usually it's because an operator has not been compliant but in this case not paying the fee will have more cost than paying it (losing the ability to offer their services). And in my opinion, 10 000 eur cost for a business shoudln't be impossible to pay- I guess their business hasn't been going well.
