PKR Poker is celebrating. Join in the fun and check out eight years of PKR's 3D poker journey with even more innovation coming to the game in a new mobile apps and a software upgrade launch.
In an interview with CalvinAyre, PKR Poker founder Jez San said, "We started from nothing. We were one of the last poker companies to launch and we came up with something that was different and that allowed us to survive in a very competitive world."
"When I first started PKR, the goal was to try and get as close to real life poker as we could," San added. "Online [poker] was all about cards and numbers, while when you play with your friends, it is all about making fun of each other, having a laugh and being more sociable. So I tried to come up with an idea that would be more about the fun aspect of the game."
And so PKR Poker began bringing the best social aspect available to the game of online poker.
"Eight years ago today, we opened our virtual doors for the first time. Much water has passed under the bridge since then," a representative of the company added in a note to celebrate the room's eighth birthday.
"We have seen millions of avatars in action at the felt, enjoyed eight PKR Live events, celebrated the victories of 78 PKR Masters champions and seen both online qualifiers, Team Pros and staff bring home the bacon in major live tournaments," the rep continued. "As our 3D poker journey continues, we look forward to many more great moments."
PKR isn't celebrating its great history of online poker and customer satisfaction, the celebration is about the future and what's in store for the players that frequent the room.
"Our development team will be busy in the coming months, with multi-table tournaments for Android following this week's launch of multi-table tournaments on iOS," the rep said. The launch of PKR 3D Poker is on the way in a brand new app available for iPhone, iPad, and soon to be available Android.
All PKR Poker players living in the UK, Ireland, Sweden, Denmark or the Netherlands will be able to access the whole PKR Poker experience as they play on their favorite tablet or smartphone. The new PKR 3D Poker app can be downloaded free from Apple's AppStore.
PKR's award winning 3D graphics and animation has been designed to be played on the small screen with new apps which allow players to access Texas Hold'em SNGs, multi-table tournaments, and the regularly scheduled events and ring games that are available now on a PC both for play and real money.
"PKR is about having fun and being sociable," San said. "Everybody is now using their mobile phones and tablets to play games. Some of them are even second screening – they watch TV and at the same time they have their iPad or iPhone on their lap," San continued. San believes the poker room had to give players the opportunity to enjoy the full PKR 3D experience on their mobile devices and build a larger player field by giving everyone the chance to join the action and fun on mobile devices.
PKR has more in store for their players — join in and enjoy all the benefits.
"A new forum is on its way, packed with new features and designed to be used on the go," the room rep continued. "The most eagerly awaited change comes this autumn, with the biggest update to our desktop software since this day eight years ago, when the original poker software was born."
No specific information has been released by PKR about the room's upgraded software launch which is the first major upgrade since the launch in 2007. In September a sneak preview of the software is expected.
