Superwins Poker

Owned by Lock Poker, one of the biggest scam poker sites in history. Superwins was a fraud from day one.

Superwins launched in March 2014.  It was the first skin of Lock Poker on its new platform.  This immediately aroused suspicion in the online poker world.  The Superwins and Lock Poker websites were identical. Someone even forgot to change some of the terms and conditions.  Support departments were the same between the sites.
 
It was clear that this was some sort of rebranding attempt by Lock Poker.  That failed because it was so clear that Lock Poker was involved.  Superwins Poker folded with Lock Poker in 2015.  While Lock Poker players lost millions, there probably wasn’t much in the way of losses for Superwins players because it is unlikely there were many depositors.  No marketing effort appeared and Google results made it clear players should stay away.

History of Superwins Poker

Superwins opened as a Lock Poker skin in March 2014.  It was clear that it was owned and operated by Lock Poker, a scam deposit-only poker site.  Posters at the Two Plus Two forum uncovered the connection instantly.  This poker skin was an attempt at a rebrand that was quickly because Google results related to the site were all warnings to players not to deposit there.

Lock Poker was already in no-pay mode when Superwins Poker launched.  The scam site closed in April 2015 and Superwins quietly closed with it.  No players ever got paid by either site.

Lessons Learned from the Failure of Superwins

Skins on failing platforms are always trouble.  It is rare that a skin can survive when the network is not paying players.  Superwins Poker was also clearly involved with Lock Poker.  Always search Google and poker forums for information on new sites.  There are great detectives that will research the background of these sites.

Superwins Poker was licensed in Curacao.  That is home to many online gambling failures.  Curacao is nothing more than an internet service provider.  The gaming regulators there will do nothing if there are complaints.  It is the same as not being licensed at all.  Use caution when playing on any site licensed in Curacao.

What Superwins Poker Was Like

Superwins was a skin of Lock Poker.  It had about 150 peak players when it first launched.  Most or all of these accessed the tables through Lock Poker.  Traffic declined slowly as players realized they would never get paid by the scam network.  The games at Lock Poker were juicy.  That is because players knew the chips had no real cash value.  Multiple all ins on hands were common.  High limit games played like penny ones.

There were tournaments with massive overlays at Superwins Poker.  That is because Lock Poker did not adjust the tournament guarantees as traffic collapsed.  The network did not care.  They knew that money would never get paid out anyway.

Where Are Superwins Components Today?

There is no sign of Superwins these days.  The website disappeared and the software is not used by any poker sites.  The same goes for Lock Poker.

Scandals Related to Superwins

The biggest scandal related to Superwins Poker was Lock Poker.  They were owned by Lock Poker.  That site stole about $15 million from its players before folding in 2015.  Lock Poker was a known scam by the time it launched Superwins Poker.  It did not pay players for the last 18 months of its operation.

Superwins was licensed in Curacao.  There have been many other online poker failures licensed there.  The Cake Poker/Win Cake debacle happened there.  It required a bailout by Juicy Stakes to give players a chance to get paid.  Full Flush Poker was a member of the Equity Poker Network that was licensed in Curacao.  Like Lock Poker, Full Flush Poker operated for more than a year when it was obvious the site was broke.
