SOFTWARE – 9/10 In the world of online gambling, PKR stands out ahead of the competition when it comes to software.
Miller’s Guide has given the innovative company one of the highest ratings for the category with a very strong 9/10.
Even if you don’t like playing online poker with all the bells and whistles that PKR offer, you can simply choose to play the online poker sites games in a more traditional SIMPLE VIEW which offers a very similar online poker playing experience to other competitors online poker software.
The software at PKR is revolutionary for many reasons, but the main one is the full 3D virtual animation experience that the custom software platform provides.
When you create an account at PKR, you are empowered to choose your own personal avatar.
While other online poker sites may also allow for their users to create personal avatars, no other site offers the level of detail that PKR does. WIth an seemingly endless amount of customisable features, users have a virtually limitless number of variations and adjustments that they can make in order to make their character their own.
PKR allows users to customise their character from the basic body parts right down to the clothes and jewellery that they wear at the virtual tables.
The poker experience at PKR is more of a video game than a software platform, but don’t let that fool you.
In 2009 PKR had a total user base of 2.4 Million customers making it one of the top online poker sites in the world.
All in all, if it’s poker software that floats your boat, Miller’s Guide suggests that you simply cannot go past PKR and the playing experience that they offer.
LIQUIDITY – 6/10 Liquidity at PKR is low, due in part to the fact that they do not take US based customers and also due to the fact that they are a stand alone company and not part of one of the larger networks.
Although the overall users at PKR are low, don’t let this distract you from the fact that there is still a very large number of people playing online at PKR at any one time.
The site regularly hosts over 2,000 players at the same time and as such there are always games of most limits available to players.
PKR regularly runs quite a lot of Pot Limit Omaha, and because the software tends to attract players of a lower skill level than some sites, the games are often very soft and easy to win at.
