On June 1, the Merge network called off all new US deposits. Merge said the hiatus (expected to last four-to-six weeks) would ease the backlog and facilitate US cashouts, which were taking four-to-six weeks to reach players’ accounts post Black Friday.
More than two months later, Merge may begin to accept US action again. According to reports, US residents may be able to create accounts on Sportsbook.com in all jurisdictions with the exception of the District of Columbia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Maryland, New York and Washington. Other skins may follow suit and reopen their doors to US players next week.
