1PKR site update brings even more realism to online poker

PKR has long been the ‘go to’ site for those who want to try to replicate the live experience while sitting down at their computer. However, now things have just become a bit more lifelike with the introduction of a new patch.

What does the new introduction bring to the table?

The new patch is purely graphical, and features include; being able to order food to the table, a fresh range of card protectors, and a whole new set of chip tricks to add to the ones that are already available.

PKR says that these updates allow the brand to ‘reach the next level of immersion’, but is this really the case? Unfortunately, in the eyes of many, once the novelty of the unique selling point of PKR wore off the site wasn’t left with much.

PKR currently sits outside the top 20 for traffic with a seven day average player count of about 500, which is 46 times less than Pokerstars. The site is even behind the French specific version of Party Poker and Pokerstars.

With this in mind, play at the site is often quite poor as there are a lot of players who choose to play the site as beginners. Furthermore, as grinding is almost impossible unless you have a super computer, the standard of the players on cash, sit n go’s and MTTs has to be described as casual at best.

What else has been happening with PKR?

While the traffic may not be the best among the sites currently online, PKR has had some really good news recently as it took down 3rd place for the site with the finest customer service site behind Pokerstars and PartyPoker. This study looked as response times, professionalism, going the extra mile and product knowledge among other points.
