Hi all,

is anyone playing at Lock Poker / Revolution Gaming? If so just wondering how you felt about how the changes and updates have been going. Also is it just me or does the SnG traffic seem tougher here. I noticed they seem to be cheaper rake so I was thinking maybe that attracted more of the better players. Either that or I hit a downswing.

Did you always play at Lock Poker, and now made the switch from Merge to Cake, or did you play at Cake before Lock Poker took over and renamed this network?

was playing at cake and kinda divided on the changes.
they removed option to change usernames. Thumbs Down
cake had shortstack 6 player sng, they gone too

but on the positive side, traffic has increased and rakeback increased from 33 to 36% Worship Worship

Have not played on Lock poker so far, but Iam planning to do so. Traffic is growing and the offer of 36% rakeback is really a good deal I think. Still searching for an additional good offer which I can use to sign up there. What about BRM ???

This is another site I've never even heard about. maybe I need to start surfing for poker sites. I'm a U.S. citizen and there's not a lot of choices for us, but maybe there's more then I think. Been locked onto Carbon so haven't looked around.

Yep. Lock Poker did buy the Cake network and renamed it Revolution. With the addition of Lock this new network now overtook Merge as the biggest network for players from the US.

Ah! So I have played on Cake Poker and wawsn't aware of the buyout. I wasn't to happy playing on Cake, but once a site has new ownership there can be significant differences. I may have to try them out since I don't have a lot of options.

I didnt know that the deal took place.
I thought that some noticeable changes will happen, but got nothing in my email besides the fact
that they notified me the rakeback went from 33% to 36%.

I really like the fact that the rake is now 36% on the new network compared to what we were used too.

I mean this is really important to cash players that generate tons of rake every month Smile

I need to find some time and start grinding again.
The rake back from cake (which is the only deal i have so far)
is a nice one, but useless unless you have the time for it, since you need a good amount
of hands to get e decent return

Thanks for all your thoughts guys. One question for SuperNewb or one of you other guys getting rakeback on Revolution. At lock it says your rakeback is deposited into your vault, and that you get a vault when you get to White VIP. Does that mean seeing as I just started I don't get rakeback? Or do you think It'll add to my vault and I'll get it when I reach white?

The support there is really slow right now so I figured you guys might know.

I have no idea how things run at Lock but i know that in Cake which now they are
all in the same network you are getting rakeback from the first hand you play,
paid back once per week.

Well that's good to know. Thanks Mober, glad to hear someone's getting it at least. At Lock it seems I have to get a VIP tier first, but I'll get back to you all when I find out from them for sure. Just in case anyone else is new there.
