Reports began yesterday on gambling forums and blogs that Lock Poker was leaving the Merge Network and is in talks to acquire the Cake Poker Network. We’ve also had player complaints about slow and delayed payments from the poker network.
According to a released statement from Lock Poker, “As of June 1st a whole new world awaits the Lock Nation.”
Lock Poker stated that the acquisition will see it ‘driving technology, marketing, player rewards and implementing a richer tournament schedule’ while members of its LockPro team of sponsored professionals are to be ‘at the foundation of these changes’.
“We are very excited at the prospect of driving the product, marketing and overall vision of the network. It is a dream come true,” “Merge (Network) was a great stepping stone for us but we have outgrown it,” said Jennifer Larson, Chief Executive Officer for Lock Poker. “We really need to forge our own path to continued success. The only way to do this is to stay true to our of core philosophy of partnering with our players.”
“Lock is in the process of acquiring assets from Cake and will be re-branding the Cake Network to launch Revolution Gaming, will come together and offer recommendations on all levels, truly bringing the player into the boardroom.
“To all existing Lock players this move will be seamless, it will take the form of a simple software update happening on May 31st. You will login to find your real money balance as well as everything else you know and love about Lock. Lock will also continue to manage their own stand-alone cashier so withdrawals will be as fast and easy as they are now. All players’ current player VIP rewards will only increase and all rakeback players will be moved over to the increased percentage on Revolution.
“Get ready for the exciting new times ahead as we continue to drive the new era where the player reigns.
