Lock Poker has announced that when the Revolution Gaming Network is launched on June 1st, all new and existing players will qualify for a daily rakeback of 36% – irrespective of any VIP level and using the dealt rakeback method rather than the contributed rakeback most often used on other online poker sites. The news was accompanied by details of two major guaranteed tournaments to be played on the first weekend in June, a rake race throughout June and a massive welcome/reload bonus of 200% up to $2,000 which will be made available to all players.
Dealt Rakeback Will be a Popular Choice
The return of the rakeback deal will be the most attractive promotion for regular poker players – especially as the method of calculating the daily rakeback will be the dealt system. This benefits tight aggressive players who receive some rakeback whether or not they are involved in a hand and may have the effect of reducing the number of players in the initial stages of a pot – with the result that there will be fewer suckouts on Lock Poker than elsewhere. Certainly, the return of dealt rakeback will guarantee that more tables will be open on the new Lock Poker site.
Huge Tournament Schedule Still to be Announced
The Lock Poker tournament schedule is still being held close to the chest, but two major guaranteed tournaments have been confirmed for Sunday June 3rd. The first, a $100,000 guaranteed freezeout will be hosted by Lock Poker pros Annette Obrestad and Chris Moorman, while a $75,000 superstack tournament to be held later that evening will benefit from the hosting skills of Melanie Weisner and Matt Stout. Rumours that the cancelled LOCKOPS tournament series will be re-schedule for October are still to be confirmed.
A Huge Welcome Bonus Awaits Old and New
The Lock Poker Welcome Bonus has been announced as being a 200% match bonus up to $2,000 for both existing Lock Poker players and new players registering an account and making their first deposit. Although the amount of the poker bonus may be matched by some other online poker sites, it is believed that the existing 90 day period available to players to clear the bonus will be maintained – making the Lock Poker bonus the best poker deal currently available on the web.
Rake Race and Further Promotions to Follow
In addition to a rake race throughout June, Jennifer Larson – CEO of Lock Poker – hinted that further promotions were still to be announced.
This is only the beginning she said in the press release advising of the new promotions,
The world of online poker has been overwhelmed with so much disappointment and broken promises. We understand the incredible desire for players to be given some hope and reassurance. Lock and Revolution Gaming are passionate about bringing back the players’ trust, excitement and sheer fun that feels like a distant memory. It’s time for a Revolution.
