On June 1st Lock Poker will be undergoing some big changes as the site is in the process of acquiring assets from the Cake Poker Network, which will be re-branded with Lock Poker at the helm of the new poker network according to a press release issued by Lock Poker CEO Jennifer Larson on Monday morning.

According to the press release (which seems to have been leaked on Sunday) the new network will be dubbed Revolution Gaming, “driving technology, marketing, player rewards and implementing a richer tournament schedule. The LockPRO team will be at the foundation of these changes. They will come together and offer their recommendations on all levels, truly bringing the player into the boardroom.”

“We are very excited at the prospect of driving the product, marketing and overall vision of the network. It is a dream come true,” says Jennifer Larson, CEO of Lock. “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.”

Lock Poker addressed their current player base in the press release assuring them that the transition from the site’s current home on the Merge Gaming Network to the newly-minted poker network would be seamless, requiring only the installation of a software update on May 31, 2012.

The press release states: “You will login to find your real money balance as well as everything else you know and love about Lock.” The statement continued with, “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. More details coming soon.”

The purchase of the Cake Poker Network by Lock Poker will see the largest online poker room (Lock Poker) on the largest US-friendly poker network (Merge Gaming Network) moving to a new network, which will likely tip the scales of power for the current US online poker industry. Stay tuned as more details emerge on Lock Poker buying the Cake Poker Network.

    I don’t like the look of cake poker they need to seriously have a sit down and discuss a redesign of the whole software.

    Lock Poker seems like a promising poker room, so I do hope they offer a good range of bonuses and promotions.
