Merge Poker, Sportsbook.com Begin Accepting New US Players Again

The Merge Poker Network (Merge Gaming) is expected to begin accepting new US players again in the coming week, according to PokerAffiliatesSolution.com.  Sportsbook.com (also known as Sportsbook.ag) began accepting new US players on Tuesday after suspending such service throughout much of the summer. 

Some of the largest online gambling companies have had to regroup after US indictments against PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and UB.com sent many payment processors running for cover.   Merge suddenly became the largest US online poker company, its traffic more than doubling in just days following the US action April 15.  But Merge was unable to handle the surge due to limited payment solutions and was forced to stop accepting new players from the States for what it said would be a “limited time”.

Gambling911.com has been inundated with emails from poker players wanting to join Lock Poker over the past two months.  Lock is a proud sponsor of the Gambling911.com website.  They will play host to G911 in Milan at EiG in late September.
