Boss Media Online Poker Operations Besieged in Malta

Stemming from when Boss Media kicked TrillionPoker off its network for "rake back violations", Trillion has been aggressively trying to defame Boss Media in what appears to be an act of revenge more so than a legitimate court lawsuit. And for what appears to be an unjust settlement to the outside viewer, the online poker room, PokerTrillion, has successfully imposed its litigation against Sweden-based online gambling software developer, Boss Media - resulting in a ruling that may effectively bring down all of Boss Media's poker activities in the UK licensed territory of Malta.

In other words, if you have been thinking about opening an account at a Boss Media powered poker room licensed in Malta, you may want to think again. According to the ruling by Judge Gino Camilleri in the First Hall Court, Boss Media must shut down its servers hosted in Malta come September 18. And the kicker is that the ruling does not allow for an appeal.

The Maltese gambling authority has been known to be one of the strictest online gambling licensing and regulatory bodies in the world, but I don't think anyone could have predicted the court to go this far. Even Boss Media itself told players that a disruption to Malta operations was "highly unlikely" and that an "award of damages" would be equally unlikely in regards to the 20 Million lawsuit (originally 5 million) filed by TrillionPoker.

Boss Media has already responded to the ruling and was quick to assure players that operations will not be shut down and that assets have not been frozen (a claim which TrillionPoker made in the past as an attempt to stir things up. All player assets are held separately under the control of the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority and cannot be seized by any court.

However, the software giant did not confirm nor deny whether the a freezing order now applies to its operations in Malta. If it does, Boss certainly has the assets to get through the lawsuit. However, if the freezing order is successfully wielded upon all of Boss Media's European operations, which Trillion says they will be applying to execute, things could get ugly real fast. We will keep players updated on this story as it unfolds.
