The troubled Lock Poker has been offline since April 17, the content and the website link is still up and running but the software does not connect to the poker server.
At first US Poker reported that while both the LockPoker.eu and LockCasino.eu websites are still up and running, anyone trying to access either software is unable to connect. USPoker emailed Lock Poker and Lock Casino to inquire if the sites were permanently shuttered. They did not receive a response to either of our requests.
In online poker Lock Poker is one of the most troubled stories since Black Friday occurred over four years ago. Payouts were known to be slow to American-based customers playing on the site, however, alarm bells began to ring when players outside the US were also being paid slowly or not at all.
Concerns about Lock Poker began in 2010 when the site appeared on Casinomeister’s rogue list for slow payments.
Liquidity concerns at Lock Poker began to heat up from the last few years when many players reporting they have not been paid since 2012. Many players on the site still waiting for withdrawals to be processed.
