Merge Gaming’s couple dozen strong online poker skins will soon have the opportunity to obtain a license from the i-Gaming friendly jurisdiction of Malta in the near future.

The Mediterranean island nation sits just south of Italy and acted as a crucial haven in recent months for those escaping the civil war in Libya. 

Anthony Taylor, CEO of Merge, said in a statement: “With more sites on the network making Europe their primary focus we believe the Malta license will help drive further network growth.”

Another US-facing brand, Cake Poker, is licensed out of Malta.

Beginning June 1, Merge stopped accepting new US customers for what was deemed a “temporary time period” in order to catch up with a backlog of check processing.  Merge experienced triple digit growth in the US market following the exits of PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker.  A handful of skins announced independently they would no longer accept US customers indefinitely.  Merge has yet to announce a date in which they will begin processing for Americans.

The Ben Roethlisberger era is coming to an end, but it isn’t there yet.

The Steelers cashed the OVER on their 9.5 win total last season winning their first 11 games and claiming another division title with a 12-4 record.
