Monday July 4, 2011 : Gaming network in negotiations for a  Malta licence
 
The Merge Gaming Network has announced it has applied for a Class 3 and Class 4 Remote Gaming Licence from the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authorities.
 
If granted, the Malta licence would allow its network partners to choose between Kahnawake or Malta regulation and has been undertaken with a view to European expansion in mind.
 
Anthony Taylor, chief executive, Merge Gaming, said: "After much research and analysis I am completely confident that the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority are the right licensing partner for us in the European region.
 
"We are excited to be able to offer this additional licensing option to our operators and European players as part of our ongoing commitment to make the Merge Gaming Network the premier poker destination for online players.
 
"We are continuing to increase our network offering for our European players, which has included adjustments to our tournament schedule and continually adding regionalised payment options for various European countries. With more sites on the Network making Europe their primary focus we believe the Malta license will help drive further Network growth."
