INTERVIEW WITH LOCK POKER INSIDER
PokerFuse exclusive details the impending demise of online poker room
Respected independent online poker news portal PokerFuse has published an interview with Shane Bridges, Lock Poker’s former director of social media and affiliate marketing which talks about an imminent collapse of the business along with the loss of player funds estimated to be in the tens of millions.
According to Bridges, although he has never had access to any real financials he believes that: “with no significant movement on cashouts and promises of the big turnaround now being 12 months old it would be my assumption that player balances won't be honoured now.”
He reports chief executive officer Jen Larson and Brendan Young, who Bridges says is the programmer behind Lock Poker, aided the depletion of the company coffers by living the high-life, sipping expensive wine and champagne, overtipping, frequenting boutique 5-star establishments and flying first class while the company struggled due to constant network changes and payment processor restrictions.
Bridges notes that he is owed back pay by Lock Poker and has come forward “in an attempt to provide information to the poker community.”
Despite Bridges’ claims, Lock Poker is still seemingly up, running and open for business.
