The MGA first reached out about the cancellation to BIB Limited on 22 December 2021. The company was then given a 20-day time period to show why the authority shouldn’t revoke their license status.
During the 20-day time period BIB made submissions that the authority deemed sufficient to grant an extended period to rectify the breached that the MGA had outlined in their notice. BIB Limited dint make the necessary changes within time to keep their license.
Due to the fact that their license is revoked BIB was directed to suspend all gaming operations with immediate effect. They are also instructed to settle an outstanding dues and remove every reference to the MGA.
Back in 2017 BIB has claimed the MGA has granted them with the world’s first ever sports brokerage license. BIB Limited had a type 4 gaming license, with approved verticals including pool betting.
Field of Fortune’s license cancelled for nonpayment
