Lock Poker continues to expand and has announced plans to acquire the Cake Poker Network. The network will be rebranded to Revolution Gaming once the takeover is complete.
Lock Poker has once again stirred the waters of the online poker market with the announcement of plans to acquire the entire Cake Poker Network.
The plans were revealed in a press release to Pokerfuse yesterday, and point to a process which includes rebranding of the network to a new independent entity called Revolution Gaming.
The takeover is expected to be completed by June 1, with all existing Lock Poker players being transferred to the new network on May 31.
Lock Poker was formerly a Cake Poker Network skin, but currently runs as a skin on the Merge Gaming Network. It will now be leaving Merge to launch Revolution Gaming. t
All existing Cake skins will also be incorporated into the new brand, but clients will not be affected as the new network is launched.
"Merge was a great stepping stone for us, but we have outgrown them," Jennifer Larsson, CEO of Lock Poker, said.
"We really need to forge our own path to continued success. The only way to do this is to stay true to our core philosophy; partnering with our players," she added.
Lock Poker has also been attracting new blood on the player side in recent months, and most recently with the signing of Annette Obrestad as the newest Lock Poker pro.
Obrestad and her fellow teammates like Melanie Weisner and Chris Moorman will continue to work with the company, but will in the future be presented as Revolution Gaming pros.
