Limits & Rake
PKR offers 2c/4c NL Holdem, and 5c/10c for pot limit and fixed limit varieties of the game. Because of the aim at social players PKR's "nose-bleed" stakes game is $5/$10 No-Limit Hold-Em. The pot limit and fix limit games max out at $10/$20. Games are easily available in the smaller stakes, but get scarce as they jump a notch. The rake is pretty standard for the online poker industry. A maximum of 5% up to $3 can be taken from a pot, but the rake is also capped smaller for smaller games.
The player base is flushing at the micro and small stakes levels. But players may need to look elsewhere if they want to play high or medium stakes. The player base just isn't there. For a new site they've already developed quite an impressive amount of traffic with an average of 800 players sitting at cash game tables at any given time. This spikes during peak time which are early in the Australian morning, coinciding with peak European times.
PKR provides phone numbers to contact their customer service department from anywhere in the world. If you're having any trouble, help is only a phone call or email away. PKR also offers a "Live Chat" option accessible 24 hours a day, that will have you chatting to a customer service rep very quickly. PKR has a lot of happy customers willing to attest to the excellent customer service they provide.
Player Rewards Program
PKR offers a rewards program titled PKR Points. These can be used to give your avatar custom enhancements and can also be used to buy into special tournaments.
PKR is the first 3D poker software client to enter the online poker market and features some amazing graphics and gameplay designed to create a more realistic experience for the player. Things like needing to squeeze your hole cards when action is on you and being able to give off tells and reverse tells to confuse your opponents. Remember all the action is replicated by your 3D avatar.
The play is slow for the most part and hands per hour are closer to those that one would experience in a real card room, as opposed to the traditional 100's of hands an hour players can be dealt mutli-tabling at other sites.
The recent PKR 2.0 software upgrade brings more poker focused graphics, faster user interface and improved multi-tabling options for those who want to speed things up. PKR remains a great online poker site for the social player.
