Re: IS ANYONE HAPPY WITH LOCK POKER ?

Everything seems good on Lock. Rackback, customer support, point redemption etc.. But withdraws waits are ****ing horrid. Talk about a panic attack.

Re: IS ANYONE HAPPY WITH LOCK POKER ?

Withdraw waits suck, but I expect that.

The software is slow, so it makes it hard to multitable, at least on a Mac. Apparently, the software is better on a Windows. Debating getting a cheap laptop after Christmas to play on. Before, I liked the software better. For a Mac right now, it's pretty bad.

My feeling: beggars can't be choosers. I can't remember had any blatant errors in the system. Can't complain about that.

But I can play poker online in the US. Can't do that on other sites.

My problem is I used to like to multi-table 4-8 tournaments at once, and all would have several hundred people in them. Here, multi-tabling more than 3-4 at once is annoying, and if I do that, there's very limited tournament selection due to lack of players. But I can't complain about that given the circumstances of poker in this country.

Overall, I've been fairly happy with it, at least enough where I keep playing. At least that is when the software is working (which it isn't for Macs right now, which is VERY annoying)...

I'm a Mac user, too, which is one of the reasons I started playing on Lock to begin with. When they were on Merge their Mac platform was excellent; now it's not a true Mac platform at all.

Like you, I thought about buying a laptop PC, but I opted instead to buy Parallels so I could run Windows on all my Macs. It's cheaper than buying a whole new laptop and it's not so bad. In fact, one nice thing about running Lock on a Windows platform is that you can use the latest tracking/HUD software like PT4.

The software is pretty resource intensive so a cheap laptop might not be able to handle it. I'm not familiar with macs but the other poster's suggestion about parallels or something might be better than a cheap laptop. Lock runs great on my new windows laptop but not as great on my old one.

Re: IS ANYONE HAPPY WITH LOCK POKER ?

Hi all, I have decided I want to start playing on Lock (mainly because the games that I play on always seem to be running and I like the software)I want to get $1000 on the site (not my whole bankroll ofc) , and I was wondering if someone could guide me into getting the best deal possible.

1) Deposit through an affiliate, get a decent RB deal plus promotions, bonuses and possible free rolls.
2) Buy funds from someone through P2p transfer with decent vig.

What do ou guys recommend?

Sorry to be posting here, but I didn't want to start a new thread and get it deleted.

Edit: What's the average withdrawal period? I wouldn't mind it if it was 3-6 weeks and I don't need to be cashing out that often.

^ Because Lock has always been horrible at paying people. Even if WU comes back it will take 8 weeks before you get the mtcn.

But yea there are a lot of games going on there all day from Russians and rest of world players also playing there. Just don't deposit anything you couldn't tolerate vanishing forever overnight.

The software is so tilting if you're playing more than 4 tables. I definitely play less because the software makes play uncomfortable. I guess there plans to upgrade the software fell through.

Yeah, really. Why would it be so hard to upgrade their software I wonder. It really is annoying

Re: IS ANYONE HAPPY WITH LOCK POKER ?

Love playing on the site, hate waiting for dough and getting the runaround from Customer Service. Wish they would be a little more forthcoming on wait times, I think most of us would be a little more patient and understanding if they would just tell us like it really is.
