Why play at Lock Poker?
Lock Poker is a relative newcomer to the Merge Network. Their branding is my favourite of any poker room out there right now, with a really classy graphite/black/silver colour scheme which is very easy on the eye. If you're after a great-looking poker site with a superb poker bonus, this is the site for you. They're offering new poker players a great poker bonus of up to $4000 at the moment which is a fantastic deal.
Lock Poker software
Being part of the Merge network means it comes with the usual excellent poker client. Lock have skinned it in their lovely looking graphite/black which looks fantastic. It really is the classiest looking poker site out there right now. If you like your poker to have a bit of class, look no further than Lock Poker. You could say, if Lock Poker was a car, it would probably be a Mercedes :) If you're someone who likes to multi-table you'll love the fact you can play up to 18 tables at once here, making it easier to earn more and more money.
Here's another cool think about Lock Poker - you can assign icons to other players and you can call them what you want. So you might give them a 'fish' icon and label them a fish. Or a donk. Or whatever you want, they'll never know! What this does is make your life easier as you can see at a glance what type of player you've rated them so you can play accordingly.

Lock Poker games
The usual mix of poker games on the Merge network including Holdem, Omaha, Stud, Draw and others. There is also access to casino games from link in the poker software, if you're up for a 'pure' gamble! A good range of poker stakes are covered, for example, No Limit Holdem cash tables range from $0.02/$0.04 to $50/$100, so there's stakes for every kind of player.
Lock Poker welcome bonus
Lock Poker are currently offering a fantastic 200% poker bonus for first time deposits up to $4000. If you're after a nice easy way to increase your online poker bankroll, you just found it.
How do you earn the bonus? By playing real money poker and earning player points. 75 player points = $1 bonus, paid out in $5 chunks. Basically the more poker you play, the quicker you'll get your hands on that lovely cash!
Lock Poker player reward/loyalty scheme
There are four levels of the VIP scheme at Lock - White, Silver, Black and BlackVIP Elite. Your status in the VIP scheme is determined by how many VIP points you earn in a month. The higher your status, the better the rewards you get.
One of the best things about Lock is that you get daily cashback, which starts at a generous 10% (the highest possible being 35%). You also get entry into a monthly freeroll and have the opportunity to earn double points on Thursdays and Fridays.
So, the sky is the limit. All you need to do is play poker like you were going to!
Lock Poker pro players
Lock features some of the best professional poker players in the world including Eric Lunch, Chris Moorman, Jared Hubbard, Nicky Evans and Melanie Weisner.
Lock Poker traffic
Player traffic at Lock is Good, especially at weekends. You'll find a whole load of recreational players (fish) at Lock, so plenty of dead money that's there for you to take off them! Traffic is best at the micro-low limits. If you're wanting to grind up a bankroll this is a great site to do it on, especially given how generous the poker bonus is.
