Furthermore, Tipster is obligated to reconcile any outstanding dues with the MGA. It’s noteworthy that all licence suspensions and terminations by the MGA can be challenged through an appeals process.

These infractions pertained to multiple Gaming Compliance and Enforcement Regulations, specifically regulation 9 (1) sub-sections (b), (c), (d), (i), (l), and (m).
