Full Review of Lock Poker
Summary of Lock Poker
Lock Poker recent;y broke away from the Merge Network to form its own network called Revolution. Player volume is improves as are the game offerings and the software. Games are soft and friendly and Lock Poker always has a range of promotions going on.
It's also one of the only poker sites available to US players right now. To help answer any questions you might have about signing up from the US, player support is available 24/7 by email or live chat.
Promotions and Bonus Information
There’s always a number of promotions running at Lock Poker, so it’s hard to give the complete picture at any specific moment. Here’s a snapshot of what’s going on right now.
Sign up with Lock Poker using a link here at the site, and you’ll get your first deposit matched with a 100% sign up bonus up to $600 maximum.
Bad Beat jackpot
The Lock Poker bad beat jackpot is “so bad it’s good”. Lose a showdown with quad sevens or better and you’ll win the bad beat jackpot at its current state. The other players at your table get a share too. Only at the jackpot tables.
Sit and Go Leaderboard
Every month, some $12,000 in prizes are paid out to players in the top of that month’s sit and go leaderboard. The exact formula is a bit involved, but the bottom line is: play well and be rewarded.
Weekly $50K Guaranteed
Played every Sunday. Buy in using cash or VIP points, or win the $109 buy-in in the satellites. It’s not unusual to see a small overlay in these tournaments. (That is, if all entrants’ buy-ins don’t add up to the guaranteed $50K.)
All new players get a chance in a $500 depositor freeroll. In addition to this, Lock Poker offers nine $50 freerolls every day.
Royal Flush Bonus
Hit a royal flush in a real-money holdem cash game and you’ll win 100 times the big blind up to $1,000. There’s a flip side though: you must earn 100 comp points for each bonus dollar before you can withdraw them.
Poker TrafficThe poker traffic at Lock Poker tops around 1,300 simultaneous players during peak hours (November 2010). The focus is on Holdem but there’s good action in most games as long as you avoid the worst low periods. The traffic peaks usually interfere with early or late afternoons in the US Pacific area.
Software & Graphics
Lock Poker has launched its own software on the new Revolution network and it is stable, reliable and really easy to use.
Graphics are very solid with more than enough features for the average player.
The lobby is well built and easy to navigate. Game data is shown in a box to the right of the game listing when you select the game in the list. You can see if your friends and/or favorite opponents are seated at the table, which opens up for some serious table selection efforts.
Game VarietyOne of the strong assets of Lock Poker is the wide range of game variations that you can play. Except from the mandatory Texas holdem, the pretty standard Omaha and the not unusual seven card stud, Lock Poker has five card draw, five card stud, A-5 triple draw, 2-7 triple draw, HORSE, Razz and Badugi.
Lock Poker features an impressive pro team with names like Annette Obrestad, Tim West, Brett Jungblut, Matt Stout, Jared Hubbard, Eric Lynch and others.
