PKR Review

It’s amazing to think that PKR was not even around when the online poker revolution was taking place during 2000-2005. However, in a no time at all, this online poker room has grown to over 2 million registered players and is one of the most recognisable brands in the internet gaming arena. PKR’s unique selling point is that it was the first and probably the best 3D poker platform on the web. This novel approach to creating a poker room has won the company several awards and created a real buzz amongst the player community. PKR have managed to form a bridge between gamers and poker, that has not been seen before.

PKR is licensed in the gaming jurisdiction of Alderney, which is on the UK White list and maintains very strict standards for online gaming sites. PKR does not currently accept US players, due to restrictions in that country.

Gameplay - 9/10

PKR offers a unique poker gaming experience combining extremely visual 3D graphics with exciting table action. Players can choose their very own realistic character that can be customised to your particular tastes. You can even teach your avatar to perform certain actions, tricks and personality traits. The gaming experience at PKR is second to none, with the option of playing up to four tables at once. You can navigate between the tables using a unique mini-view system that allows you to view all tables simultaneously, with one in main view and the other three minimised. For all these playing treats there is a price – the software is close to 600MB to download. If you don’t have broadband you may as well forget it, and you will need to make sure your PC is up to scratch even if you do. Mac users will not be able to download the software, so they will need to access a PC or use windows software if they want to play at PKR.

Tournament play at PKR is fast and furious, with plenty available starting at $1 buy-ins and going up to $250. Freerolls at PKR are regular and well attended, with lots of table action to be had. There are regular freeroll satellites and qualifiers to play in, including a $10,000 tournament on the last Sunday of each month.


Promos - 8.5/10

PKR has some of the best bonuses online, designed to pay whatever level you play at. Up to $500 is up for grabs, which can be claimed through sign up, PKR players points and loyalty bonuses. The bonus is tiered based on your initial deposit, with the larger your initial deposit, the bigger your reward.

You can collect PKR points when you play, which can be redeemed for cash prizes, bonus money, tournement entry and items of PKR branded merchandise.


Transactions - 7.5/10

A good variety of payment options are available at PKR including NETeller, Click2Pay, Visa, MasterCard, Switch, Solo, Moneybookers and Bank transfer. Depositing is straightforward and more importantly safe, as PKR use state of the art SSL encrypted technology to process financial transactions.

Withdrawals can be made using a variety of options Visa, Mastercard, NETeller, Click2Pay, Moneybookers and cheque. Payment time varies, depending on your method, but it is generally swift and painless.


Customer Service - 7.5/10

PKR offers two main methods of support, Livechat and email. Both of which is friendly, useful and quick. After sending a number of emails to PKR customer service, the average response time was approximately 30 minutes day and night. Live Chat is also useful, although it can take a while to get through at busy times. There is a very comprehensive F.A.Q. section, if you prefer to find the answers yourself. The lack of phone support is always a bit of a downer, but the PKR team do make up for it in other areas.
