You don't think he feels bad about his name being associated with Lock? Do you honestly think he had any control over your money? He never had any operational control of funds or anything like that. Honestly what a sad pussy-rant by the op, man up and accept your losses, you took the risk.
he kept promoting AFTER it came to light they were not paying out. Do one.

Wow don't agree at all at bashing the guy behind the video at all. F lynch. Should be shamed every time he takes a seat. If that makes the people doing it jerks so be it. It has to be done.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cake_Network

As you can see Cake Network (which is now wincake) clearly states that it purchased and owned by Lock Poker since June 2012.

"In June 2012 Lock Poker purchased the Cake Poker network, renaming it the Revolution Gaming Network"

Like many Wikipedia articles, this one is inaccurate. Lock Poker did not purchase Cake Poker. Lock left Revolution long before both crashed and burned.

There were stories claiming this narrative in the days after the Lock move from Merge but it turned out to not be true. Lock Poker left Revolution and the network tried to pick off Lock's players on the way out through a network-related skin called Pure Poker.

Also, Cake Poker is not Wincake. Wincake doesn't exist anymore. Its skeletal remains are known as Horizon and is controlled by Intertops or a company with a close relationship to it.

They were getting preferential treatment until Lock stopped paying those 6 figure advertising fees. The special treatment ended when the calculus of incoming deposits did not match up with those huge monthly fees. 2000 depositors a month be damned. That was really the beginning of the end for them because without that huge spigot of deposits, it quickly crumbled.

Also, judging by the CC threads, many were stiffed.

No one is claiming a recent cashout. No one. As alluded to, you might want to check the dates of the posts you're reading and/or replying to.

I'd say you are a bit behind. Lock was a scam and nobody got any money. This is why we need regulated sites in the USA.

If embedded video isn't working try this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TNLv0CquRHg
I would say this video doesn't serve much of a purpose.

Eric was a "Poker Room Manager" for Lock.

Do you really think he would've taken such a petty position if he knew what would come of it? Do you really think he was compensated enough to want to deal with this sort of backlash?

He likely knows more about the situation than he is letting on.. This also probably has to do with the fact you are basically interrogating him. I truly don't think he knows where any money or Larson is at.

In the end, sites like Lock Poker have bruised the reputation of online poker and legitimate offshore gambling sites alike. 95% of the US are playing on unregulated poker sites right now and some of these sites such as WPN are legitimately trying to bring back that trust of the common person. Continuously bringing up and reviving threads like this just gives that common person a reason not to give things another chance.
