PKR Poker


PKR Poker is the biggest revolution in poker, ever since the game became part of the online scene. The online company that powers the poker site of PKR has given the players a whole new world of game play along with an impressive poker community. The games are based around excellent 3D graphics and the player can move between playing poker, roulette and black jack in the virtual PKR world. PKR Poker makes their poker room feel like a real poker room or casino, in the way that it is easier for the players to communicate and share experiences through the software but also in the PKR community on the PKR Poker website.

The graphics constitute a full 3D environment and the impression to actually sit at the poker tables in a casino or poker room. The players can create their own personal profile and make the poker avatar look exactly like the player in the real world. It is also possible to tell the online poker avatar how to act at the table, either if the player wants the avatar to act the way the player does or adopt a whole new style. When earning PKR Poker points the player can use them to unlock character features and clothing that the avatar can use.

A disadvantage of the program is that the PKR Poker Client is huge in size and that it takes a lot of time to download. Next, it is hard to play more than 4 tables at the time due to the heavy graphics that need to be rendered all the time. If a player has slow internet connectivity and has a hard time to down load the client it is possible to order a software CD from the PKR website enabling all people to play online poker or casino games at PKR. The software is ‘slow’ which suits beginning players extremely well. It is easy to find hand history to review the game play of the player.

Currency:

All game play in the poker client uses one currency and PKR Poker has decided not to equip the online accounts on the website with more currencies. The decision to not offer more currencies on the website other than US dollars is based on the assumption that no players should have their money subjected to any exchange rate or costs when one transfers money between the main wallet and the poker client. However, when one makes a deposit into the PKR online poker site from another currency, the transfer converted against daily exchanges rates.

The following currencies are accepted at PKR Poker: US Dollar.

Bonus:

PKR Poker offers their players a nice first deposit bonus, where the player actually receives more than one bonus. When one makes the deposit, the players receive a regular match bonus of 100% ranging from $10 to $800. This is apart from the match bonus: the new depositor will get 5 tickets to PP freerolls and a ticket to the $1 thousand premium freeroll that is played every week. The player also gets 1500 player points to be used to accessorize the 3D poker player’s avatar with clothing, shoes, and accessories and to determine the way the avatar moves on the tables.

PKR Poker has never offered their players a rakeback program. Instead the poker player can earn PKR points when they play on the real money part of the client. The PKR Poker points can be used to buy in to several of premium freerolls that offered by PKR. The points can also be used to accessorize the poker avatar and within the PKR Poker VIP shop where the players can find clothing, poker items and tickets to live poker events.

There are some demands in order to be able to claim the total 100% bonus up to $800. These demands are developed to keep the player and the casino secured from frauds. The bonus terms states that the player has to collect 225 PKR points for every $1 that is deposited. When the total amount of PKR Poker points is reached for the bonus, it will be released in one big lump sum. For a bonus of $800 the player needs to collect 180.000 PKR points before the bonus is released to the player.

PKR Online Poker Games:

PKR’s highly graphical 3D client does offer great game play but not a wide range of different poker variants for the player to participate in. The two possible poker games that the PKR player can participate in are flanked by both a roulette game in true 3D graphic and blackjack in the same manor.  When a player is looking to get seated in a cash game, a multi table tournament or a Sit and Go, it is always possible to find good action in the poker room on all different levels of money.
