PKR.com is a completely unique experience in online poker – stunning graphics create an immersive 3D environment that combines online poker with live aspects of the game, such as the ability to perform chip tricks and berate your opponents. With a host of fully-customisable colourful characters and environments to choose from, the emphasis is on fun – for instance, the more you play the more chips tricks you can unlock – and it’s this element that attracts beginners to the game. This means it’s a great place to seek out softer players and to start learning the game. Stakes range from $0.01/$0.02 to $100/$200 in limit games and $0.01/$0.02 to $5/$10 in no limit games. PKR also offers a wide variety of tournaments, from six and ten-handed SnGs, to big-money guaranteed prize pool tournaments, not to mention plenty of freerolls.
If you’re a serious pro who wants action dealt thick and fast on 24 tables at once, PKR.com probably isn’t the place for you. Speed is sacrificed in favour of offering a “realistic” live experience, but you will still find plenty of good regulars at the higher limits, many of whom are attracted by the strong sense of community nurtured by the site. PKR.com is not just an online poker room, it’s a social networking hub, with a buzzing forum, as well as “My PKR”, a tool that allows you to message friends and follow their progress. In fact, PKR prides itself on being the world’s friendliest poker community, and that’s reinforced not just by social media but with a print magazine for its members, as well as PKR Live a hugely popular annual live tournament hosted exclusively for PKR players and supported by a fantastic party.
PKR is licensed by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, a jurisdiction white-listed and fully trusted by the UK government.
