Malta regulators suspend license of online gambling operator 7epta7

malta-gaming-authority-7epta7-license-suspensionMalta’s gaming regulator has suspended the license of online gambling operator 7epta7 Limited for as yet unspecified reasons.

On Monday, the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) published a notice indicating that it was immediately suspending the Class 2 gaming license of the Malta-headquartered 7epta7, which does business via the 7epta7.com website.

The MGA ordered 7epta7 to indefinitely suspend all gaming operations, stop registering new players, suspend all website transactions and submit requested data to the MGA. The MGA stressed that any claims by 7epta7 sites to be operating with the approval of the MGA are henceforth bogus.

While not specifying the precise nature of what caused the suspension, the MGA’s notice invites “players who deem to have any outstanding payments due them on the mentioned license” to contact the MGA with details of the (apparently) inaccessible funds in their 7epta7 accounts.

The MGA says it won’t be releasing any further information at this stage “in order not to compromise any investigations that may need to be performed” by the MGA or any other competent authority.

The 7epta7.com site – which still currently displays the MGA logo – features messages notifying customers that they will be “Back again in less than 7 Days,” while promising that that the “Redesign of our Webportal is right in front of the Finishline… So we can re-open our Service in a few Days… Stay Tuned.” Additional notices promise “special Actions for your satisfaction” once this “great Re-Opening Party” kicks off.

Most of 7epta7’s associated social media platforms haven’t been updated in over a year. Last February, the company posted the promotional video featured below to YouTube, which could represent the final word on the company, at least until its ‘great Re-Opening Party’ gets underway.
