As Gambling911.com reported on Tuesday, Lock Poker continues to be licensed by both the Kahnawake Gaming Commission and the Curacao Netherlands Antilles licensing agency for online gambling.

However, in recent days, Lock Poker’s software network, Merge Gaming, also obtained a license from the government of Malta in order to better position the company in Europe.

It seems Malta was not too happy with the idea that Merge’s few dozen skins had begun posting its seal on their respective websites and elected to single out Lock specifically in an eye-brow raising statement that made it appear to some that the popular online poker room was perhaps carrying the plague. 

Today, a spokesperson for Lock Poker noted the progress being made on this front, and it’s all good news as Malta is recognized among the most vital online gambling jurisdictions and Lock very much wants to be able to feature their seal.

Gambling911.com has been closely monitoring the TwoPlusTwo.com Lock-sponsored posting forum, where we obtained the following: 

Merge Gaming Malta Ltd was recently granted a LOI for a Class 4 Platform license by the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority. Based on this Merge allowed it's licensees, including Lock Poker, to display the LGA logo on their site once they had opted in to the agreement and updated their Terms and Conditions on site.

Merge Gaming Malta Ltd is now working with their Key Official in Malta to resolve issues that have arisen in the past two days. Merge Gaming Malta Ltd can also confirm that Lock has in fact provided all required documentation to Merge Gaming Malta Ltd in relation to this process.

Lock always has and continues to conduct its operations under licenses from multiple jurisdictions. Lock has been pro-active in assisting Merge Gaming Malta Ltd to address the Malta issue and this should be resolved shortly.

Lock Poker will be entering the US market shortly but the worst kept secret is that the Lock Casino continues to accept US customers for those of you looking to enjoy the Lock experience.
