Shares of Gold Reef were up 5.6% at R17.75 in mid-morning trade.

The decision followed an eight-day hearing in which the Competition Commission recommended the approval of the deal, subject to the  merged entity selling off Silverstar Casino to maintain competition in the Gauteng casino gaming market.
