PKR.com is a UK-based online poker site that launched in 2006 and has become a popular site, boasting over 2.5 million players due to its flashy and unique 3D, virtual reality-style game presentation with fully customisable online avatars.
This emphasis on creating a virtual 'live poker' experience online, means that those who want to play multiple, fast games and maximise their potential winnings should probably look elsewhere. Those looking to emulate the buzz of a real poker match, on the other hand, may enjoy the unique experience on offer at PKR.com.
Making a Deposit
PKR offers players a number of secure and speedy methods of loading funds into their gaming accounts including Visa, MasterCard and Maestro debit and credit cards, Paypal, Skrill, PayPoint, UKash, Click2Pay, EntroPay, Fast Bank Transfer, Paysafe and more.
Website Design and Usability
PKR.com's 3D game presentation is rather resource-heavy - so you'll need a reasonably proficient machine and a stable internet connection to get the most out of it. Having said that, as long as your equipment is up to the task, PKR is in a class of its own when it comes to immersive design and user experience.
As previously mentioned, accessibility and speed take a back seat to the graphics when it comes to poker tables at PKR, and a limit of just four tables in simultaneous play may put off players who are looking for quantity over quality.
Withdrawals are secure and speedy and can be carried out via the same wide range of methods that are permitted for deposits.
Though nothing particularly noteworthy, PKR's customer care is solid and accessible. The site contains comprehensive information about the games and the software, and should players need further assistance they offer live chat and an online email form which receives prompt replies. However, no telephone support is currently offered.
Hardcore online poker players may find the 3D graphics somewhat gimmicky and distracting, and the limitations imposed by the software too much of an obstacle to serious poker playing. Those looking for a visually interesting, customisable online poker experience, however, may find they enjoy tinkering with their endlessly modifiable avatar and soaking up the atmosphere of PKR's unique approximation of a live poker game.
