Full Review

Lock Poker is an up-and-coming poker site on the Revolution Poker Network.

The site benefits from a slick interface, value-packed promotions and some impressive tournament volume.

Players have access to the standard online poker capabilities like multi-tabling and numerous poker variants in addition to exclusive extras like the detailed stats dashboard with a special “vault” feature that lets you lock up a certain percentage of your bankroll and guard it with a four-digit PIN.

Lock Poker also includes some fantastic standard features like a tab-based interface in the lobby for multi-tabling and fully resizable tables.

In addition to No-Limit Hold'em Lock Poker also offers Pot-Limit Omaha and Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo.

If the Lock Poker software looks familiar that’s because it utilizes the Revolution Poker software, which most people will recognize from when it was Cake Poker.

Lock Poker also has a robust team of pros that includes up-and-comers Annette Obrestad, Eric “Rizen” Lynch, Matt Stout, Brett Jungblut and Jason Young.

Traffic is decent on Lock Poker and there are always tournaments starting although it’s much easier to find lower-stakes ones. It’s worth noting that play is considerably worse on Lock Poker than some of the major sites, which is a good thing if you like to win money.

Bottom line, If you’re looking to try something new it’s a great time to get locked into Lock Poker.

Tournaments and Freerolls

Tournament players will find plenty to keep them busy on Lock Poker.

As with most sites the most popular tournaments are low-stakes Sit & Goes with those kicking off at least every minute.

The biggest weekly tournament is the Sunday $109 buy-in $10k Guaranteed, which usually attracts hundreds of runners.

Lock Poker also runs a variety of satellites into live events. Aussie Millions qualifiers seem to be particularly popular.

There aren’t as many freerolls on Lock Poker as some sites but if you look hard there are definitely some opportunities to make something from nothing.

Software and Graphics

Lock Poker’s software is slightly dull but certainly gets the job done.

Clad in a stylish black and grey theme the lobby and tables give players a VIP experience.

Fortunately the site is also devoid of clutter and the lobby is simple and intuitive.

The software package is very compelling with multiple table views, avatars, stats, completely re-sizable tables, a variety of betting options and a blackjack game that can be run in the client.

Lock Poker is somewhat limited in the games it offers with only No-Limit Hold'em, Pot-Limit Omaha and Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo.

Lock Poker also offers LockREPLAY, which is an exceptional hand-replayer that is integrated directly into the player dashboard.

About the only issue we’ve encountered with the software is that if you play without avatars the tables look a little strange with detailed empty chairs everywhere.

Other than that it’s very difficult to find much fault in the Lock Poker software.

Soft Competition

If you’re looking for loose action Lock Poker is a great place to start.

Finding the right table on Lock Poker is like finding an ATM that spits out money. Some of the plays we’ve seen on the site range from bizarre to downright terrible.

If you know basic hand rankings it seems you’re ahead of the curve on Lock Poker. That’s not to say everyone is bad on the site. The higher-stakes games are obviously more difficult but even in those games there are spots that can be profitable.
