Revolution Gaming Network: Review and Deposit Bonus
Lock Poker officially launched Revolution Gaming Network, formerly known as the Cake Poker Network, on May 31, 2012. Intertops Poker and Cake Poker, the largest online poker rooms on the former Cake Poker Network, merged into the Revolution Gaming Network on June 1, 2012. With that move, Juicy Stakes Poker came too and is now one of the rooms on the network.

|Juicy Stakes Poker||36% Rakeback, 200% Deposit Bonus up to $2000 and more!|
Lock Poker, which used to be part of the Merge Gaming Network, was finding it hard to get along with Merge’s cashier and player policies. Lock Poker then decided to go ahead and acquire Cake Poker Network and re-christen it as Revolution Gaming Network. Before the acquisition, Lock Poker was (according to Lock) the largest online poker room on the Merge Network, drawing nearly 40 percent (again Lock’s number) of the network’s total number of online poker players. Since Lock Poker is now the owner of Revolution Gaming Network, gaming experts estimate that the network has become the number one US friendly online poker networks, provided Lock Poker retains its entire player base. Additionally, Lock Poker will also be bringing close to forty sponsored professional poker players into the Revolution Gaming Network.
Players on the Cake Poker Network used to be very unhappy with the time taken by the network to process payout requests. Sometimes, Cake players in the United States had to wait as much as 3 to 4 months just to see their poker winnings in their bank accounts. In fall of 2012, Cake Poker and Intertops Poker stopped accepting new US players and all old US Cake accounts have been transferred to Juicy Stakes Poker.

Lock’s acquisition of the Cake Poker Network has had its own advantages and disadvantages. Revolution Gaming Network is not only expected to give players a better online poker product in terms of promotions, cashier system, online poker tournaments, and bonuses, but also create more competition in the US online poker market. After Black Friday, Merge Gaming had monopolized the US poker market, frustrating thousands of US players with is pathetic cashier system.
US players have now largely migrated to the Revolution Gaming Network in large numbers to enjoy the benefits of a superior product. Simultaneously, analysts warn that only time can tell if Lock’s problems were caused by Merge Poker Network or flaws within its own system. If it turns out that Lock was responsible for all the problems it faced on the Merge Network, players can expect Lock to continue having the same problems. Besides, one can never know the US federal government’s next move.
