Big poker changes lined up for June
The 1st of June looks set to be a momentous day but the fact that Lock will continue to have control of their stand-alone cashier procedures should ensure that withdrawals are just as simple to process as they are now. The VIP rewards on offer to players will remain and likely increase and the site is set to release more information regarding rakeback. There is genuine talk that there will be a revolution in the poker industry with some of these changes that Lock Poker are bringing about.
As much as existing Lock Poker players can expect there to be much of the same with regards their account, there are going to be plenty of changes that the LockPRO team are looking forward to bringing. The fact that Lock is snapping up many assets from Cake and will be changing the branding of the Cake Network to the Revolution Gaming Network should give an indication that changes are afoot.
Many changes to follow for poker players
Improvements in gaming technology are definitely coming but there will also be a lot of other improvements and benefits along the way. The new network is keen to market itself better and reach the end users in a more productive way. There are likely to be a lot more rewards for players on offer and there is definitely scope for improve poker tournaments and schedules. When you consider that a major reason for the split between Lock Poker and Merge came due to the cancellation of a major poker tournament, you just know that the team behind Lock are very keen to bring this style of poker playing to the masses.
The CEO of Lock Poker, Jennifer Larson has been keen to outline some of the changes and the reason for change that will come about on the 1st of June.
"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 was a great stepping stone for us but we have outgrown them. 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:partnering with our players."
It is important to remember that Lock Poker have come a very long way in the four years they have been around and this is what makes the comments from Jennifer Larson so interesting. The Lock brand exploded onto the online gaming scene with a popular casino and there have not been too many looks back in recent times as the company has progressed with technology, promotions and of course, gaming tournaments and events.
Lock Poker has a history of innovation
Innovation has always been a key factor in the success of Lock Poker and it should also be highlighted that the company was the first to create a Mac download casino. With a huge array of online casino sites providing Mac compatible casinos this may not seem like a big deal but it wasn’t so long ago that it was a monumental occasion for Mac users and the online gaming industry as a whole.
Stats have always been an important factor in a poker players success and it is no surprise that stats have been at the heart of the success that Lock Poker have achieved over the years. The best way for poker players to improve their skills and become better players is to analyse their game and this has been an integral part of the offerings provided by a number of online poker sites. Again though, Lock Poker was seen as one of the more innovative providers of these statistics and this is why there is a lot of high hope about the future of the site and the new Revolution Gaming industry.
The poker industry is open to change
When big changes occur in the online poker industry, players are always going to sit up and take notice. There are still a lot of players feeling the shakedown from the Black Friday events so it is only natural that a lot of players will be looking on to see what Lock Poker does next and whether Revolution Gaming turns out to be a success. There are certainly no such things as certainties in life but the track record of Lock Poker indicates that they have a strong chance of achieving their goals.
Employing people of the calibre of Eric Rizen Lynch is another indicator of the quality on board at Lock Poker. This site has always managed to provide a fresh take on the poker industry and with a determination to continue their record for innovation and progress, it would be a brave man or woman to bet against the might of Lock Poker and Revolution Gaming from succeeding.
