PKR.com is a UK based online Poker site that was launched in 2006. PKR has an ace up its sleeve in comparison to other poker sites with its visuals. It offers a realistic poker experience by means of realistic 3D graphics which give you the feeling of sitting in an actual poker room. Individual characters can be customised to suit your preference and realistic visual cues such as hand actions and tell tale signs are all present, giving the players a live gaming experience right in their living rooms.
PKR offer Multi Table Tournaments which are like satellite tournaments that offer a passport to live poker games that PKR Poker is associated with. So if playing poker in a real casino is your dream, the Multi-Table Tournaments should be where one starts. In addition, for those who just want to play a quick game or two, the Sit and Go games are ideal. They offer tables with two, six or ten players and set against a standard clock or a faster turbo version for more intensive gaming experiences.
With its interactive game play, excellent graphics and competitive games, PKR has picked up several awards including ‘Hotshot operator of the year’ in 2008 and ‘The Sunday Times Tech Track Top Technology’ in 2010 and continues to bring in quality players and host excellent games. PKR even hosted a live tournament in London in 2008 which attracted 150 players and has even made it an annual affair hosted at Aspers Stratford in London, right next to the Olympic Village.
Software and Security
PKR.com’s ace up its sleeve is the software which delivers spectacular visuals. With a new upgrade in 2012, some of the previous complaints such as the lack of tile-ability have been resolved, allowing the players to switch between up to nine different game tables. In addition, realistic characterisation allows each player to customise his ‘avatar’ which includes facial features, gender and clothing. Additional features such as the multiples modes for the camera only add to the experience. Given its quality software setup, security is just as easy and safe. PKR develops its own software and is encrypted to very high levels.
For someone who is just joining the site, PKR offers three different bonus options. The starter option gives a player an additional USD 5 credit when they deposit USD 10 or more and earn one PRK point. The intermediate option is much more gracious with a 100% bonus on offer for up to a USD 150 deposit. Additional gifts and PKR points are also awarded. The cherry on top however is the advanced bonus offer which promises a 125% bonus on deposits up to USD 500. Additional PKR points and other freebies are also included. These freebies include, a free ticket to the $20,000 GTD Mini Masters, automatic upgrades to Club PKR, entry to a USD 2500 depositors Free roll held on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month and other free roll tickets.
Deposit and Withdrawal techniques
PKR offers a wide variety of cash deposit methods. The common modes of credit and debits cards are the most popular whereas the alternatives include wire transfers, Paypal, Neteller, Moneybooker Entropay, UKash and Click2pay. Withdrawals can also be done using the same portals and modes as preferred with free courier offered for withdrawals above USD 1,000.
PKR is one of the few poker rooms to offer a live chat service for support in addition to email.
