PKR announces imminent move to Microgaming Network

Posted on

Online poker PKR’s switch to the Microgaming Poker Network should be completed by the end of February, though no exact date has yet been publicised. After some ten years operating as a standalone online poker room, 3D site PKR announced last Friday that it will be moving to the Microgaming Poker Network at the end of this month (February). “PKR has survived (and sometimes thrived) for 10 years as a standalone poker room, but neither our staff, investors nor players are content with survival, and we have ambitious plans”, said PKR’s Chris Welch via the brand’s online forums. “We want to give you the best poker experience possible but with the biggest tournaments, and games available every minute of the day”, he continued. “This move allows us to remain true to our video game roots while simultaneously giving you more choice, more opponents and more prize money – the best of both worlds”. “We are still totally committed to our 3D world, and to our community, as these are the two things that have got us this far. Being able to tap into a bigger player pool just makes sense.” The post also details PKR’s intentions where switching its primary currency to the Euro is concerned, as well as a completely revamped loyalty scheme – the PKR Poker VIP Club – which should result in all the site’s players benefitting from more rewards than ever before. Additionally, as has become custom practice for Microgaming’s sites over the past few months, PKR players will now be able to choose a different poker alias and change that tag every 30 days or 1,000 hands. PKR, which has slumped to 38th place in the industry recently where regular traffic is concerned, will be the second online poker brand to join the Microgaming Poker Network in February, after Grosvenor Casino announced a similar switch this past fortnight.
