Lock Poker Modifies Player-to-Player Transfer Policy in Face of User Uproar

Questions regarding Lock's solvency have remained unaddressed.

Lock Poker, co-owner of the Revolution Gaming Network, has announced a revision and clarification of its P2P (player-to-player) real-money cash transfer policy, in the face of an intense customer backlash on poker discussion forums over the site’s existing policy.

Lock PR representative Shane Bridges posted the revised policy with a brief statement on the dedicated “Lock Poker” area of the 2+2 forums. Bridges confirms that Lock will adopt a 15% GGR (Gross Gambling Revenue) cutoff on all transferred amounts.
