The Merge Gaming Network has been granted the right to operate their poker and casino skins within the European district of Malta. Their new license will allow the proprietors of the network’s individual sites to opt into this newly legal market.
“After much research and analysis,” said Merge CEO Anthony Taylor, “I am completely confident that the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority is the right licensing partner for us in the European region… With more sites on the Merge Gaming Network making Europe their primary focus, we believe the Malta license will help drive further growth for the Merge Gaming Network.”
While some of the internet’s larger gaming sites (such as Full Tilt) are struggling to maintain their places, smaller organizations such as the Merge Network have stepped in to legally fill the void. Governments seem to be more willing to work with networks and websites who have been more cautious on the legal front during the past few years.
Two of the network’s largest poker sites are the critically acclaimed CarbonPoker and the fledgling PokerNordica. Each boast sizable traffic totals, though Carbon is clearly the more populous of the two. Merge also operates several casino and sports betting sites, including 1Bet2Bet, Best eCasino, and Best on USA. All of these will soon be legally available to users in the Maltese district.
