Lock Poker Player Traffic Drops Another 18%

The cash tables at Lock Poker continue to lose action, as the latest PokerScout tally finds 18% less players competing in ring games than last month.

PokerScout reports a seven-day average of 28 players on Lock Poker tables, down from 34 in October. While the decrease may seem negligible to some, it comes as tremendous good news to around 400 players who have been waiting months for their cashout requests to be processed and would like nothing better than to see Lock Poker receive its comeuppance in the form of empty poker tables.

Lock customer service has repeatedly told inquiring players that their withdrawal requests are being tended to, but those promises have by and large been empty. Almost $1 million is owed to players, according to a list compiled by 2 + 2 poster ‘IHasTehNutz.’

Unpaid player list dog-eared and yellow

The list began taking shape in May of 2013, now a year and a half in the making. The smart money is on the likelihood that ‘IHasTehNutz’ will not be changing his moniker to ‘IHasTehMoney.’

A letter sent to Lock management by the Poker Players Alliance some seven months ago asking for answers regarding the forlorn cashouts has seemingly been ignored, prompting the PPA to warn players that their funds may be at risk should they deposit and play at Lock Poker. The hundreds of players waiting for their funds – the majority of whom have been left hanging for over a year – can certainly attest to the extreme risk at depositing at Lock.

The latest decrease in player traffic follows a 15% decline last month that saw the average ring game traffic go from 40 to 34. Word is seemingly spreading to players to stay away from Lock Poker, yet the poker room continues to advertise promos such as a 200% up to $1,000 Welcome Bonus.
