Superwins.eu Poker Room Gets Red Flag From Poker CommunityMarch 13, 2014 3:51 pm
Back in October 2013, troubled online poker site Lock Poker left the Revolution Gaming Network citing “numerous and ongoing breaches of contract by the current network operator.” Since then, Lock Poker has continued to remain one of internet poker’s most notable disasters, with $921,850 in outstanding cashout requests stretching back 12 months still owed to more than 350 of its beleaguered customers. In addition there are rumors it still owes an eight figure sum to its previous network host.
Until recently, Lock Poker had then been the only poker room available on its own independent software platform, but now a new online site called Superwins.EU has launched sharing the same liquidity as Lock. However, the branding of the two sites are so similar as to arouse strong suspicions amongst poker players that the new skin is merely a means for Lock Poker to evade its badly damaged reputation for processing cashouts,
Adding to suspicions is a plethora of details linking the two organizations together, as well as the fact no clear thinking poker room would want to be affiliated with a network where the only other poker site has attracted such damaging ponzi scheme type allegations.
Not surprisingly, the launch of Superwins.EU has raised red flags amongst wary poker players, as the specter of yet another online poker disaster rears its head. Already, 2+2 poster’s have been having a field day warding other community members away from falling into the possible trap, with one poster called The Woodsman, stating:
“Is the Poker Players’ Alliance aware of what is going on with Lock? Are they trying to do anything about it? I mean what is the point of having an organization like that if a scam like this can go on in plain sight?”
Needless to say, many internet sleuths believe the launch of Superwins.eu is purely a cynical attempt by Lock Poker to trick new players into depositing money on the site, which they will likely never see again.
