The Federal Trade Commission cleared the proposed purchase of Anchor Gaming by gaming giant IGT. The deal is valued at $1.4 billion.
Shareholders of the respective companies are scheduled to vote on the merger on Tuesday.
Gaming regulators in various jurisdictions must still approve the merger.
IGT currently controls about two-thirds of the U.S. gaming equipment market.
Under the deal, each Anchor share will be exchanged for one share of IGT stock. IGT also will assume about $367 million in Anchor debt.
