The Revolution Gaming Network is undergoing a bit of a shakeup as Cake Poker has announced all US players at the site will be migrated to the Juicy Stakes Poker skin on the network. The decision will not impact players as both sites share the same network, but the move does hint towards a possible change at Revolution Gaming and could signal that the Lock Poker led US-friendly poker network is trying to insulate itself from potential Department of Justice intervention.
All player balances, VIP Points, and other awards and promotions will remain in the players’ accounts, and will stay the same going forward. Players will also still have access to the same poker tables and games at Revolution Gaming and traffic will remain the same at network –which is currently the largest US-facing poker network and ranked #11 overall by pokerscout.com.
The story that Cake Poker would be migrating US players first appeared on CalvinAyre.com and was later verified by PokerEagles.com who stated that several other Revolution Gaming Network rooms would be following Cake Poker’s lead and migrate their US players to Juicy Stakes Poker: Colt Poker, Fugu Poker and Hilife Poker.
Revolution Gaming was created just a few months ago when Lock Poker decided to leave the Merge Gaming Network, taking the bold step of purchasing the entire Cake Poker Network and rebranding it as Revolution Gaming. With Lock Poker’s player base, and a marketing push centered around the launch of the network, Revolution Gaming shot past Merge Gaming as the largest US-friendly online poker network.
The entire online poker industry has been undergoing a makeup since Black Friday, and recently sever iPoker Network skins have migrated their players to larger skins like Titan Poker in a preemptive move before the network switched to their two-tier system that rewards their best producing skins with exclusive tables. We’ve also seen the IGT Poker Network (formerly known as the Entraction Poker Network) preparing to cease operations, and several of their largest skins migrate to the Microgaming Network.
Rumors also have bWin preparing to migrate their player base to Party Poker as the bwin.party Corporation has bWin’s current home, the OnGame Network, on the market. OnGame is also losing Betfair to iPoker, as the site has signed an agreement to join that network.
One thing is for certain, it doesn’t appear that these migrations and consolidations are going to end anytime soon, especially as PokerStars prepares to relaunch Full Tilt Poker in early November, about the same time as the first Nevada online poker rooms will be coming online.
