• Bryan Micon Offered to Purchase Problem Site Lock Poker

    18 May 2015


    In a very interesting piece of information that's come out of his federal investigation, it was found that Micon offered to buy Lock Poker.

    There has been an investigation going on into Bryan Micon. The Nevada Attorney General has been looking into his involvement with the site Seals With Clubs as he is allegedly the founder of the site. However, this investigation found something very interesting that was previously unknown: Bryan Micon offered to buy Lock Poker from Jennifer Larson, the CEO of the notoriously-defunct US-facing poker brand.

    Agent Ricardo Lopez was the one to give testimony that led to the general public finding out about this. He was involved with checking out the contents of a computer of Bryan Micon's that was seized, and he found a message on the popular instant messaging platform Skype that was directed to Larson. In that message, he offered to buy all of the software assets of Lock Poker and the brand itself. He also mentioned intentions of paying back all of their players and turning the brand around as a whole. Micon went so far as to compare Lock Poker to the Chrysler automobile brand in the early 1990s when it focused on changing its image.

    Another interesting development about this is that Larson never messaged Micon back, or at least there is no record of it. So far, there is no evidence that they talked further on the issue, though that's not conclusive by any means.

    In the Skype message he left for the Lock Poker CEO, he mentioned starting Seals With Clubs in 2011 and that he gained a large amount of wealth as bitcoin prices fluctuated wildly. This doesn't bode well for him in the investigation that's still ongoing at this time.

    More about Lock Poker

    Lock Poker and Lock casino originally launched in 2011 on the Merge Gaming Network. After some disagreements about over-the-top promotions that they were offering, they left this network and moved to Cake, which was renamed into the Revolution Gaming Network in 2012. The Cake Network as a whole wasn't the most reputable place to be in the first place at the time with many players taking as long as six months to receive cash outs. They eventually moved to their own network in 2013. Unfortunately, they're now known for taking as long as two years to pay some of their players with several people reporting waiting times of more than a year. They eventually shut down operations in April 2015.
