Can't blame Merriam-Webster for lazy Englishmen...
Archaic in British English, used mostly in your mangled colonial lingo. The fucking article you linked to says as much YTC.
Merriam Webster can go shag its sister, the OED is the definitive.
the OED wrote:gotten North American or archaic past participle of get.
As past participles of get, got and gotten both date back to Middle English. The form gotten is not used today in British English (except in the adjective ill-gotten) but it is very common in North American English, though even there it is often regarded as non-standard.
