Inside a long Gameboy multicart

I recently bought a Gameboy lot with a unit, games, and a case. Included in the lot was a couple of oddly shaped multi-game cartridges. I decided to take a look inside one of them.

As seen below, what makes this cartridge “tick” is two chip-on-boards (the black lumps). However, what puzzles me is that the cart also contains several unused spaces for IC:s. What is the purpose of these, and why doesn’t the cartridge look like a regular Gameboy game?

The games included on this particular multicart can be seen below. I guess Super Mario Land and Batman Return of the Joker would be two strong reasons to buy this cartridge, unless you really like games based on cartoons.
