Once you have installed the software, open it up. You will be presented with their log-in page. If you are a new user, click the "Create Account" button near the top right side of the screen shown here:
If you click on the "Create Account" button, you will be shown a page to fill in your personal information as well as log-in name and password. Please fill everything out as carefully as possible.
If you have an account already, make sure to log-in with your e-mail address and password. You will now see the lobby if everything was typed in correctly, shown here:
At the top of the lobby on the right you can click the "Cashier" button which lets users not only deposit but type in bonus codes. Here is what one method of depositing looks like. Keep in mind that the bonus field is available last but is very important!
Of course once you have had the chance to download Lock Poker and deposited you can enjoy all the games the lobby has to offer! The lobby immediately starts in the "Ring Games" tab. With this tab, players can choose between various card games such as Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Stud as well as Draw and Other. Under the Texas Hold'em tab, players can choose between Limit, Pot Limit, and No limit. In the Omaha tab players can select between the same options as well as Omaha Hi/Lo. The Stud tab brings a lot of options. Players can choose between various betting rules with games of 7 Card stud, 7 Card Hi/Lo, Razz and 5 Card Stud. Finally, the Draw and Other tab lets you choose between 5 Card Draw, Triple Draw, Badugi and Mixed.
Underneath the Ring Games tab is the "Tournaments" tab. By clicking this, players have the option of choosing a regular tournament, a satellite, a special or a private tournament. Helpful icons display what type each tournament is exactly and each tournament displays the amount of players participating.
Moving along to the "Sit N Go" tab, players can see the available options there. They can choose between either limit, pot limit or no limit tournaments. Players can also choose if they want to play in a regular Sit N Go, Heads-Up or a Satellite. It is really simple to figure what game to play exactly with their great use of these tabs.
Finally, there is a "Casino" button that, when clicked, directs players to their casino account. Players have the option of playing in casino games such as blackjack, roulette or Caribbean Stud. If you'd rather play video poker, Lock Poker gives that option too! Choose between Joker Poker, Deuces Wild and Jacks or Better.
At the top left of the page players can review their statistics by clicking on “Lobby” and selecting “Player Statistics.” Players can also review their transaction history, meaning all of their deposits and withdrawals, by visiting Lock Poker’s Cashier. Players can review their hand histories under “Options,” and customize their playing experience as well.
Overall, the software is very easy to use. It has a variety of tabs that help players find exactly the games they want to be a part of. The only downside is that a majority of the buttons take you to their website as opposed to just being included in the software which is just a little inconvenient.
