A bit of confusion occurred late last month when the Maltese Government released a statement on its website suggesting that Lock Poker, an online skin of the popular Merge Gaming Network, had displayed a license seal without authorization.

Malta has now released a follow up statement, explaining its stance and notifying the public that Lock is indeed classified as an “intermediary” of Alfard Malta Ltd, presumably the Merge Gaming group. 

Lockpoker.eu is a website which has now been notified to the Authority as an intermediary of Alfard Malta Ltd (holder of a Maltese Remote Gaming Licence LGA/CL3/694/2010) which is to be operated on the Merge Gaming Malta platform (holder of Licence LGA/CL4/693/2010). Although duly licensed in Malta Alfard Gaming Ltd does not yet have the authorization to go live from Malta as currently Merge Malta Limited is in the process of finalising its technical setup in accordance with the Maltese Regulations, a process to be concluded shortly.

The Authority, however, denies spins by certain sections of the media. This was a case of having failed to notify the Authority of an intermediary arrangement  in a timely fashion. The Authority, ever vigilant in the public interest, took immediate action as it does in all similar cases, irrespective of the nature of the infringement.

Malta is considered a major Internet gambling hub and licensing jurisdiction. 

Lock Poker is a proud sponsor of the Gambling911.com website.  US customers are encouraged to check out the Lock Casino here.  Lock Poker should be available to US citizens shortly.
