Lock Poker – Knights battling for iPads, iPhones and More

By RTR Dennis

Grab your broadsword and head out onto the Lock Poker cyber battlefields in search of huge rewards this September! Lock is running two “Battle of the Knights” leaderboard races and giving out an additional 17,000 cash prizes (worth $2 million collectively). If you’re interested in winning some of these prizes – which range from iPads to 2012 Aussie Millions packages – keep reading to find out all the details.

Cash Rewards
As players generate rake in poker tournaments and cash games, they’ll move closer towards the different cash prizes that are available in Battle of the Knights. There are 58 different prize levels, and players advance up a level every time they meet the rake requirement. For example, Level 1 requires that players rake $10 in order to win the $2 payout. Likewise, the top prize of $5,000 is paid when a player generates $8,000 in rake. Any player who completes all 58 prize levels will have collected $45,244 in total payouts.

One very important thing to note is that there are only so many prizes available on each level, so you need to hurry and meet the rake requirements. Payouts are made very hour, which means you won’t be waiting for prizes long after earning them.

Leaderboards
Besides the cash rewards, there’ll be two leaderboards running throughout September called the “Knights of Ring Game” and “Knights of Tourneys.” These are both pretty unique boards because points are given out based on a formula that includes rate of return (ROI). Here is a look at both formulas for the ring game and tournament leaderboards:

Knights of Ring Game = (ROI x square root of rake hands) + (profit/100)
Knights of Tourneys = [ROI x (tournaments/5)] x 10

At the end of September, there’ll be two tournaments for all ranking players from each leaderboard, and the winner of each tourney receives a 2012 Aussie Millions prize package ($15k value). Additionally, the top 10 points earners from both leaderboards will collect the following prizes:


  1. iPad 3 64GB WIFI/3G ($829 value)

  2. iPad 3 32GB WIFI/3G ($729)

  3. iPad 3 32GB WIFI ($599)

  4. iPad 3 16GB WIFI ($499)

  5. iPad 3 16GB WIFI ($499)

  6. iPhone 4S ($199)
