Revolution Gaming Network

You might recognize Revolution under its former moniker - Cake - and there's no doubt the network is launching something of a 'revolution' in online poker.

Revolution poker sites launched in summer, 2012, when the much-maligned Lock Poker bought up and rebranded the existing Cake network. Lock left the Merge network to complete the transition, and Merge's loss was Revolution's gain.

With the new network, Lock's loyal Hold'em players migrated over to make the baby of the online poker world one of the strongest brands in the US-facing industry.

However, that all ended in 2013 when Lock terminated its contract with Revolution to develop its own platform.

This page includes vital information on why Revolution Poker is so popular, like:

  • Security is TRUSTe verified
  • Accepts a huge selection of banking methods
  • Known for awarding regular promotional prizes

Major Skins

What's been left behind on the Revolution Poker Network is some solid skins without the taint of Lock. There are well over 30 skins currently operating, and although not all are that big, a few gems shine through.

Juicy Stakes, for example, while perhaps not the most well-known site overseas, is a good US-facing skin with lots of good features and bonuses.

Meanwhile, Intertops Poker (who own Juicy Stakes and who have moved across various networks since its inception in 1996) runs a solid website that has just re-opened for US players. Rakeback across the network for grinders and pros runs at a healthy 36 percent too.

Revolution offers great rakeback and amazing bonuses and promos across the network.

Benefits of the Network

As some of the bigger skins have moved over to the new Revolution network, it has meant that some sites have been allowed to operate independently of each other.

While in general that hasn't affected the games on offer, it means that cash-out times can vary from skin to skin. But, as mentioned, rakeback figures are pretty healthy across skins, hovering around the 36 percent mark.

In terms of bonuses, Gold Chips and Gold Cards are a common feature across the network which gives Revolution players the chance to win free cash and prizes just for playing on the site. This promo is available network-wide and isn't just confined to one or two skins.

As well as poker software, the Revolution network recently opened a revamped sportsbook online across its skins.

Games Highlights

An overspill of the old Cake Network, the Revolution network is blessed with plenty of good variants, with modest cash games running in Texas Hold'em, Omaha, and 7-card Stud / Stud Hi-Lo.

Double-or-Nothing, Heads-up SNG and regular SNG action is good across all skins too, with some wallet-friendly , and games perfect for casual players.

A plus for cash game players is that the Revolution Gaming Network sites allow the use of HUD software like PokerTracker.

Big Poker Tournaments

While big poker series on the Revolution network are in short supply (particularly at time of writing), the bigger skins run plenty of daily and weekly GTD tourneys where players can buy-in using cash or Gold Chips.

Conclusion

Revolution Conclusion

A reputable network with good software and some big skins that have been around since the dawn of online gambling, Revolution continues to prove that you can exist in the US and globally and still compete on the same level as the major players. And with 34 separate skins currently operation on the RPN in 2016, there are always games on offer.

The departure of Lock (finally) is probably the catalyst that will see this network push on with their next big revolution. Time will tell if they can fully capitalize on their business with a move into the regulated US market. Until then, the network will continue to offer games to European and US players via its Curacao-based HQ.
