Things change a lot over time. Once Lock finally left the Revolution Network, the honest members of that network breathed a big sigh of relief and confusion finally started to lift. The number one honest member of that network (in my opinion) seems to be Intertops
. They have been in business forever and have always had a great reputation for paying out quickly. They probably lost a great deal of money from the dishonest member (or members) of the Revolution Network because monthly reconciliations were not being paid.
When Lock suddenly left the network, Intertops and Juicy Stakes
combined their player pools and shut everyone else out.
It was really looking like Juicy Stakes was another of the dishonest members of that network because the payouts were non-existent or taking forever, just like with Lock, but when Intertops accepted Juicy as a player pool partner while shutting everyone else on the network out, I thought "wow, maybe Juicy was more of a victim than a perpetrator"....and sure enough, I got paid my $473 (net $373 after the $100 fee) via WU within a week of request...it's a shame I had to pay a ridiculous fee but considering I had already written that cash off as lost to another dishonest poker site, I was pleased to get 3/4 of it. Others on other forums also were posting that JS was cashing people out finally. I hope it's still true today one month later, but not sure.
I'm very thankful that I can play on Intertops because today they no longer accept U.S. players without some sort of special invitation, but if you were a member years ago, you're still allowed to play there.
It is very apparent to me that Lock was the ultimate crook here. Dakota shouldn't have to go through what she does to help CC members who are still waiting, she should be winning bracelets and stuff like that. The fact that Lock still advertises fast cashouts and everything while only cashing out those who apply pressure with real clout involved tells
me that we as a poker community need to fight this corruption every chance we get but then again we don't have time for that....
Everything I just said was my opinion only...it's based on a lot of research and some of my own experiences.
