Lock Poker Decide To Go It Alone
Announcements made on Monday morning have revealed that Lock Poker have agreed to purchase the assets of the Cake Poker Network in a move that will ultimately see them leave the Merge Gaming Network to establish their own platform.
According to a press release first reported by poker industry news portal www.pokernews.com, Lock Poker’s aim is to rebrand the existing Cake and launch their own network, Revolution Gaming, on June 1, 2012 in order to offer customers a better service.
Lock Poker will now be extensively consulting their LockPRO ELITE team – which includes the likes of Chris Moorman, Melanie Weisner and Annette Obrestad – to gain a better idea of how the new network can create a superior playing environment for Lock customers.
With improvements likely to include a more generous reward system and an overhauled schedule of tournaments, existing Lock customers will not have to worry about the switch as all of their real money balances and VIP points will be transferred to the new network on May 31.
“We are very excited at the prospect of driving the product, marketing and overall vision of the network. It is a dream come true,” said Lock Poker CEO Jennifer Larson. “Merge was a great stepping stone for us but we have outgrown them. We 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.”
