Software – very good
Another in the line of top quality Revolution Gaming Network rooms. Great avatar and hand history options and as everand you can lower the graphic resolution to suit whatever your needs. A quality product.
Playability – very good
A very nice, simple design that is user friendly at the table with buttons clearly marked and unobtrusive sounds. It is extremely simple to switch from normal to full screen and the multi-table function is also easy to use. The lobby is generally intuitive and well thought out.
Traffic – good
One of the faster growing sites on the net. Plenty of choice in tournaments and cash games although traffic can be a little lacking away from peak hours. Pretty much all the major formats are included here; Holdem, Omaha (hi/lo), Stud (5-7 card hi/lo) and Razz.
Support – very good
Excellent support with Live Chat available through the Lock Poker website. Support by e-mail is normally fast, friendly and of good quality. All the major deposit and withdrawal methods are supported with cashouts usually taking between 48-72 hours.
Summary – very good
Lock Poker is one of the younger brands in the Revolution Gaming Network of poker sites, but also one of the fastest growing and certainly seems to have become a strong favourite amongst US players since Black Friday. They keep everything clean and simple, right from the sleek looking homepage down to the sparse poker client itself. The emphasis is on style with substance and whilst Lock have the standard Revolution Gaming promotions, they are also bringing onboard some original offers which often include their growing set of online pros.
As they say, the customer rarely lies and with Lock Poker’s growing popularity mixed with the Revolution Gaming Network seal of approval and benefits, make them a poker room well worth checking out.
Info – SnG Leaderboard
The leaderboard awards points to each player based upon their placings in any Sit’n’Go tournament. This includes satellites and bounty SnG’s as well. Points are calculated based on a formula that is scaled depending on the cost of the buy in. For example, a tournament with an entry of $10 + $1 will award more points to the winner than a tournament with an entry of $1 + $0.10.
The other factor that comes into play is the streak bonus. Winning several tournaments in a row is quite an impressive feat and thus we feel should be rewarded accordingly. So the streak bonus multiplies your points depending on how big your winning streak is and the bigger the streak, the bigger the multiplier.
Players that make the top 25 on the leaderboard will take home some cold hard cash. In addition to $10,000 in prizes for the Sit’n’Go Leaderboard there is also a separate $2,000 prize pool and leaderboard for those with the best winning streak. The leaderboards are finalized and paid out at the end of each month
