PKR Upgrade to Version 2.08
In July, 2012, PKR upgraded their state-of-the-art software to version 2.08 and with that upgrade came a whole host of new and exciting features to make playing on PKR even more enjoyable.
The update makes it possible to open up to nine separate 3D real money table windows, meaning you can now tile, cascade, or arrange them to suit your mood and they can even be moved alongside casino games and mini-game windows too.
Another major upgrade was the introduction of virtual drinks which increases the social aspect of this unique online poker site. You can now buy - and have bought for you - pints of lager, mojitos, tequila shots and much more; pay for them right out of your PKR Points!
Other improvements included in the 2.08 update include:
- A new Luxury Yacht setting
- Improved table chat panel
- Revamped emote controls making it easier than ever before to express yourself at the table
- A new "My Seat" camera angle

Launched in 2006, PKR was developed from the ground up as a fully immersive 3D online poker experience. PKR delivers the speed and intensity of online poker with the added emotions and expressions found in a live game. PKR's unique “Emote Control” technology allows players to engage and interact in more personal, entertaining, and immersive ways.
Each player can fully customize their avatar, allowing their personality to shine through. Through facial expressions and gestures PKR presents an online experience that delivers a unique blend of online and live poker traits.
PKR also hosts an impressive line-up of daily, weekly, and monthly guaranteed tournaments, making PKR a highly lucrative place to play. Needless to say, both beginners and advanced players will find a lot to like about PKR.
Winner of Top Technology Award
In 2010 PKR was ranked number one on the Sunday Times Tech Track Top Technology list. The company was awarded the coveted top spot because of its unique playing software, dedication to customer support, community focus, and fantastic growth. PKR continues that strong tradition still today.
Limits and Rake
No Limit Texas Holdem begins at a modest $0.02/$0.04 and increases steadily to a maximum of $5/$10. You will also find Pot Limit Texas Holdem starting at $0.05/$0.10 and going all the way up to $2/$4, while Limit Holdem begins at $0.05/$0.10 and ends at $10/$20.
If you’re looking for games other than Holdem, you will also find both Limit and Pot Limit Omaha, beginning at $0.02/$0.04 and going up to $2/$4, while a limit variation can be found as low as $0.05/$0.10 and moves in steady increments to $3/$6. Obviously the stakes offered on PKR are designed for beginners and/or low limit players, so it’s a great choice if you fit into either one of those categories.
PKR generally keeps its rake at around 5% of the pot size. A maximum of $3 can be taken as rake, although at the lower limits the maximum rake can be as low as $0.25. The number of players and the limit level determine the maximum possible rake and rake-percentage rate.
PKR is an independent network; however, the online site still attracts a large user base. With so many players looking for great action, finding a game at the right limit level shouldn't be a problem. PKR's generous daily, weekly, and monthly guaranteed tournaments also provide an ample platform to increase player traffic. With all that said, keep in mind that PKR is geared toward offering 3D games, which is a niche all on its own.
PKR is a fantastic achievement in software programming. It is polished, well designed, and fantastic piece of software. The customizable options allow a level of personalization not seen in other online poker rooms. The file size is large when compared to other poker rooms and PKR is fairly resource intensive. Furthermore, the finished product is chock full of eye candy.
Players are greeted with PKR Pal, a program that downloads PKR updates in the background, so there will be no wait time when you are ready to play. PKR Pal will also notify you of upcoming tournaments, without the need for the actual PKR program to be running.
The tables are incredibly immersive, as each player has emotional control over their avatar. Through the PKR software players can celebrate a win, berate an opponent, taunt, smile, clap, and even perform a number of chip tricks. Players can incorporate all of these functions into their game, just like in real life. There is an animation for every single move, whether it’s calling, checking, folding, or even moving all-in.
While the aforementioned options are entertaining, it does make multi-tabling somewhat difficult. In order to take full advantage of PKR, players will need a computer that is fairly fast and up to date; however, PKR does offer its poker software in a “min spec” edition which is better suited for older and less powerful machines.
Due to all of its special features, PKR does not offer an instant play version, meaning you will have to download the software.
Software and Extra Features
The software has a professional polish and is complemented with an array of game features and options. Among these features are:
- PKR Pal – Download updates as they happen; no wait time, plus receive timely reminders when tournaments begin.
- Dynamic Camera – The camera switches position around the table, giving the impression of a televised broadcast.
- Unique Poker Environments – Immersing graphics allow you to play in unique detailed 3D poker room environments.
- Customizable Avatar – You can customize hairstyle, shirt color, body type, and even vocal accent.
- Full Screen – A welcome option for those of you who like bigger graphics.
- My Friends – Keep track of all your poker pals through this option.
- PKR Points – Use PKR Points to buy virtual clothing, extra chip tricks, and more.
A range of international, Canadian, and U.K. toll-free phone numbers are available. The customer service at PKR is accurate and easy to comprehend. They are helpful and aim to solve queries as soon as possible. Several emails are available, depending on the specific query being addressed. Live, online chat is also available 24/7.
