PKR Poker Review

Review last updated on May 31, 2020

PKR Poker is one of the online poker world's greatest success stories. Since its launch in 2006, the poker room has attracted over 2 million poker players who visit it to play No Limit/Limit Texas Holdem Poker, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, No-Limit Stakes poker games ($0.01/$0.02 - $5-$10) and Limit Stakes poker games ($0.01/$0.02 - $100/$200) - all in 3D graphics. It is often referred to as "stunning."

3D Graphics tops the PKR Poker Room features. This means players can choose and customize their characters as real web avatars, their sex, clothes, emotions and more. Other highlights include a variety of playing modes and views and an active Freerolls & Tournaments schedule.

While the advanced graphics used to be a problem for slow computers, the minimum system requirements are easily reached by any computer and laptop today.

The mass popularity of the 3D poker room has the effect of drawing beginner poker players. Hence the level of competition is where it is - and the opportunities for the experienced player advantageous.

Players will find many flexible deposit and withdrawal methods at their disposal including credit cards and checks, Neteller and other online payment solutions.

24/7 customer service is excellent and will help inquires about games, deposits, and the software too.

Launched in 2006 and owned by PKR Ltd, PKR is a good source for poker action, as far as its auditor, GA, and Alderney, where it is licensed, are concerned PKR welcomes poker players with credentials, games and promotions.

What's Hot & What's Not

The hottest features of PKR Poker certainly include:

  • Innovative 3D poker unbeaten by any other poker room
  • Juicy sign up bonus
  • Mac compatible
  • Plenty of traffic to find a game at your level - from micro stakes up to high rollers

PKR loses points for the following:

  • Limit of four tables simultaneously
  • No bad beat bonus
  • Guaranteed tournaments smaller than other poker rooms

Bonuses, Promotions & Wagering Requirements

There is an exceedingly generous first deposit bonus which PKR will match dollar for dollar. You have 60 days in which to clear the bonus which is automatically credited to your account. PKR will also give you $50 free simply for referring a friend to the site ... and your friend will also land an additional $50 in their account. The only condition is that your friend must make a first deposit of $50 or more. Besides bonuses, there are also a variety of satellites for big PKR money guaranteed tournaments, PKR festivals and the global live poker events such as the World Series of Poker and the Asian Poker Tour for just a fraction of the buy in. Plus, there are a number of other ongoing promotions that are updated on a regular basis to keep things fresh and lively for their player base but to give you a taste such promos might include Porsches, road trips to Las Vegas or memberships to Nuts magazine.

Software Features & Graphics

In terms of software and graphics, PKR has left its rivals for dead. PKR has certainly gone that extra measure to make sure that your online poker experience is as close to real life as is absolutely possible. What makes PKR so unique is that it offers it entire game selection in 3D. This really is a whole new way to play poker online. While every computer in today's world should be able to cope with the system, a speedy internet connection will certainly help. You will also need a graphics card with at least 32MB of RAM. There are regular software updates. What you can do with the software seems almost limitless. Using the 'Heads Up Display', you can choose the angle of view, control your emotes (to laugh or clap for example) and select a mood to change your character's body language at the table. There is also even the option to create an avatar that looks just like you or any other person you may want to be. The number of options you have is almost insane! You have control over your voice, facial features, hair style, hats, sunglasses, clothes, shoes, football shirts, tattoos and piercing! And if you are more concerned about your game than your appearance, thankfully it is also easy to recall your hand history and to tag and write notes about other players. The site is available seven languages including English, French, Spanish, Dutch and German. On the downside, you are only allowed to play up to four tables simultaneously at PKR. The other games will appear conveniently as mini tables on the side of your screen.

Loyalty Points and VIP Clubs

There are five PKR loyalty levels ranging from Bronze up to Diamond. Members of the Club PKR will receive regular reload bonuses, entry into a $1,000 freeroll held on the third Sunday of every month, access to satellite tournaments and free entry into monthly prize draws. You will received 100 PKR Points for every $1 you spend in entry fees. Points are also awarded on raked hands at real money tables. The unique perk about this particular loyalty club, is that once you have achieved a certain level, it is yours for life. With other sites, unless you earn a certain number of points, you lose your loyalty status and have to begin all over again. Every player who plays for real money is automatically joined as a member to PKR Club as some of the lower levels of the club are certainly realistic to achieve for many players.

Games, Tournaments & Table Limits

PKR offers a good (but not the best) range of poker variants including the ever popular Texas Hold'em, Omaha and Omaha Hi-Low and offered in limit, pot limit and no limit. No matter your playing level, you will find the right table for your experience and bankroll as there is plenty of action at the micro levels all the way up to the high stakes for much more skilled players. There are also numerous ring games, sit n gos and scheduled tournaments throughout the day. The guaranteed tournaments are not as huge as you will find at some other poker rooms but are still a lot of fun. Every other Saturday there is the PKR Masters Champion with a guaranteed prize pool of $100,000. There is a direct buy in of $250 or you can try to qualify through one of the many satellites starting at just 60 cents. There is also a Bounty Tournament every Wednesday with a guaranteed $10,0000 prize pool. You will find that the sit and go's roll around the clock so you won't have to wait long and there are 12 daily freerolls for a chance to win prizes.

Real Poker Club - Fox Poker Club

In 2010 PKR became a sponsor of London's Fox Poker Club and has now taken the relationship a stage further with the launch of the Fox Poker Club Online. This new venture merges land based and online poker by taking a real poker club into the homes of its online players. This ground-breaking initiative recreates the entire 6,500 sq foot venue online and that includes the bar! Players can virtually visit the Fox Poker Club and choose from 20 poker tables to play at. This virtual poker feature takes the 3D poker operator onto another reality level and keeps it at the forefront of the online industry.

Customer Service & Support

If you cannot find the answer you are searching for on the FAQ page, there is a dedicated and responsive customer service team available 24/7 via both live chat or email. PKR promises to answer all email inquires within 24 hours. The response period to live chats has on occasion drawn criticism from a small handful of players. You will also find a User Guide on the support page and lots of tips and videos to help improve your poker skills and strategies on 'Raise Your Game'.

Banking & Payment Options

There are a wide range of deposit options, including all major debit and credit cards, wire transfers, NETeller, PayPal, Moneybookers, Paysafecard, Paypoint Paycash, Click2Pay, Ukash and Click and Buy. All your personal banking details such as your password and credit card number should be as secure as Fort Knox when you are transferring money to PKR as they use the industry standard SSL/https encryption process. There is also a minimum deposit of $10 and players should note that there is a deposit fee of $1 for every deposit under $25.
