So what's new or different to before? Well, first of all Lock now operates their own gaming network after they aquired assest of the former Cake Poker Network to get off Merge.
I belive the move to be the right thing and I'm thrilled by it. In the past Lock had many great ideas and plans for promotions on the Merge network, like the LOCKOPS Tournament Series with over $2M in Guarantees, but Lock always run into walls with Merge not seeing the potential of Lock's visions and ideas.
It's sad for Merge cause with Lock Poker's move to their own poker network Merge just lost aprox. 50% of their players, if not more. However, with the move to their own network Lock is now at liberty to finally live up to their ideas and visions and I can't wait to grind it out. The tagline for Revolution Gaming is The Future and looking at the promotions in June Lock is certainly kicking their future off with a blast!
For the first week of June new and existing Lock Poker players recieve a massive 200% up to $4,000 using the bonus code THEFUTURE when making a deposit. This bonus is available on all deposits, and multiple deposits are allowed so you can keep using it all week to get the most out of it.
Lock Poker also offers a 2nd bonus for the entire month of June of 200% bonus up to $2,000 using the code REVOLUTION. This is a one use only code but also available to new and existing players.
Starting June 1st Lock runs a $1,000,000 rake chase promotion called Battle of the Ronin which pays out 2,900 individual cash prizes starting at $1,50 if you play up as little as 100 points all the way up to over $45,000 for players reaching 80,000 points. Check out the promotions details here.
Lock Poker also stepped up their Rakeback and now offers the highest rakeback in online poker. Starting June 1st Rakeback will be set at a market leading 36% paid daily to the players VIP vault. For high volume players the Lock Poker VIP program is still around and now pays out a total 55% at the highest level.
To wrap it all up Lock is celebrating with a massive opening weekend of tournaments planned with a $100,000 Guaranteed tournament along with a $75,000 Superstack tournament. One of these tournaments will be hosted by Lock Pros Chris Moorman and Annette Obrestad, while the other will be hosted by Melanie Weisner and Matt Stout.
Personally I belive Lock Poker and Revolution Gaming will take off like a rocket bringing their players the sickest promos in online poker given their history of working towards their players to provide the best benefits for playing on their site. I can't wait for the upgrade to complete so I can login and check out the all new SnG structure that was put together by Lock Pro Jared. I'll definitely grind out the opening tournaments and take a shot at knocking out Matt and Chris... but I'll stay away from the Girls, they are lethal and just gonna wack me over the head.
And of course there is the EU Poker League kicking off their 4th season on Lock in June. The EUPL works hand in hand with Lock and HoldemManager bringing their players a sick poker league with tons of cash and merchandise up for grabs in each season. The great thing about the EUPL is that it's the only league running a EU and US friendly schedule. Make sure you check them out since ALL players from around the globe can grind it out on Lock.. yeah even you, you know what I mean. Make sure you check out the league since S4 is about to kick off soon.
Now head over to the Lock Poker website and join me on my LockGrind.
See you at the table,
