As of June 1, 2012, the Cake Poker Network re-established itself under a new brand: Revolution Gaming Network. In a May 7th press release Cake Network announced that it was in the process of selling certain assets to Lock Poker, indicating that the maneuver would allow Lock to rebrand Cake Network, and it would provide all Network partners, poker rooms, and online poker players the chance to participate in the growing Revolution Gaming Network.
The change is now in place at member poker rooms.
The Revolution Gaming Network is US-facing, US-friendly poker network that has experienced a surge of membership after burning of Black Friday. Available for PC or Mac, this online poker software gets online poker players where they want to be–in the thick of one of the most active poker networks available.
What this means for Intertops Poker and Cake Network poker players:
- More power means quicker play and higher volume of players
- Increased player rewards
- Increased variability in tournament schedule
- More guaranteed poker tournaments.
- Tabbed lobby and filtered search options will streamline a players game selection experience.
- Sortable tournament details and schedules.
- Customizable player avatars.
- Unique player statistic tracking
- Very little change by way of a player’s online poker playing experience–Cake Network poker rooms, like Intertops, will continue to operate their own stand-alone cashier, so deposits and withdrawals will be unaffected by the re-branding.
- Usernames and passwords will remain the same.
It seems the biggest advantage to the switch is the available player pool; more players means more monied tournaments, more game selection, varied competition, a lively atmosphere nearly every hour of the day, and more available money and prizes to win.
We have a healthy dose of what you can expect at Intertops as it rolls over to the Revolution Gaming Network. While it may not sound as delicious as the Cake Network, you’ll have plenty of action to whet your poker appetite.
