Merge Gaming Network
Merge Gaming Network is a new and popular online poker network that has managed to reach the Top 20 list of poker networks within just 2 years of launching.
An Introduction to the Merge Gaming Network
The Merge Gaming Network has not been around as long as some of the other networks have, having launched operations in the beginning of 2007. However, it has still done fairly well for itself, breaking into the list of Top 20 online poker networks in the industry, and racking up a large number of poker rooms in the bargain.
The Merge Gaming Network is secured by Thawte and licensed and regulated by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission. The popularity that the network enjoys is largely because of its proprietary software, which provides the different poker rooms on the network with a range of features.
