PKR Review

PKR is a poker site specializing in 3D poker. They have a specially developed software that offers a detailed 3D experience. You can watch the table and your fellow players from various “camera” angles and use your personalized avatar to project various emotions and mood sets.

While playing poker here, you can also play side games. There are five different side games to chose among: Deal or No Deal, Caribbean Stud Poker, Mini Casino Hold'em, Mini Blackjack and Mini Roulette. All side games are available for real money and play money gaming.

PKR has been online since 2006 and has two gambling licenses; one from Alderney and one from the UK.

Welcome bonus

PKR has a rather high first deposit bonus. Just like most other poker sites they offer a 100% match on your first deposit, but the ceiling is $800 which is fairly high. In order to get any welcome bonus at all, you need to deposit a minimum of $10.

When you have made your first deposit, you will receive four tickets to Premium Freerolls + 1,500 PKR points to give you a good start.

In order to release your 100% match bonus, you need to play poker for real money at PKR. When you play you get points, and 225 PKR points is enough to release $1 of your bonus. You will not get the bonus until you have enough PKR points to release the entire bonus. If you for instance make a $100 first deposit you will get a $100 bonus and need to gather 22,500 PKR points to release it. You must do this within 60 days, otherwise you will lose the bonus.

Software

PKR have its own unique software and playing here is a bit similar to playing a modern video game. You have to download and install a poker client before you can start playing; playing directly in your browser is not possible. A reasonably fast internet connection is recommended and you should make sure that you have at least 1 GB free disc space on your hard drive before you download the client. The client will work together with both Windows and Mac OS.

There are a lot of different environments to chose among once you open the poker client, and you can for instance elect to play poker in a cruise ship setting, in the sunken city of Atlantis or in the gambling capital of the world – Las Vegas. You also get to build your own avatar by selecting sex, hair style, eye color, clothes, etc. At the table, you will be able to enrich the gaming experience by showing emotions, using body language, playing with your chips, and more. Several camera angles are available, including first person and birds-eye view.

Game selection

PKR has focused heavily on the 3D experience to attract players, and only offers three different poker variants:

The most expensive tables are the $25/$50 tables.

Omaha and Omaha 8 is available as fixed limit and pot limit, while Texas Hold'em is available as fixed limit, pot limit and no limit.

Tournaments
