LAS VEGAS and VALETTA, Malta, May 14, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Meridianbet, a prominent global sports betting and iGaming operator and a part of the Golden Matrix Inc. Group (Nasdaq: GMGI), continues its commitment to offering extensive political betting options amid significant regulatory developments in the USA.

With over 15 years of experience in political betting, Meridianbet continues to set industry benchmarks with its innovative offerings and extensive market reach.

Over 15 years of pioneering political betting

  • Tradition of Excellence: For over 15 years, Meridianbet, a part of the Golden Matrix Inc. Group (Nasdaq: GMGI), has been offering bets on the outcomes of political elections

  • The winning party
  • Election results by state

A Proactive and Compliant Approach

Amid the latest news from the USA, where the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has moved to ban event contracts tied to political outcomes to avoid putting the futures exchange "in the role of an election cop" ahead of a crucial election in November, Meridianbet continues to solidify its unique market position.

Unlike others, Meridianbet excels at offering betting on political and other non-sports events, setting itself apart in the market.
