LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 26, 2013) - PKR greeted its five-millionth member in November 2012 and with even more recruits over the Christmas period, the poker room is already gearing up for a busy 2013.
The London-based operators have gone from strength to strength in recent years - firmly establishing PKR as the best 3D poker website on the planet. By launching a real money poker app for the iPad in January and for the iPhone this month, PKR's plans for 2013 seem to be already well underway.
Introducing even more interactive elements to PKR was part of the final improvement phase for 2012; features such as in-game drinks, snacks and chip-guards were brought to the table - quite literally. Now, the gaming site is looking to roll out even more enhancements for their five-million+ members in 2013…but nobody is letting their poker face slip on the details yet.
A spokesperson for PKR commented:
"Every element of PKR's success in the UK and across the world is down to our members - they are the ones that spread the word, tell us what we're doing right and tell us what we're doing wrong. To reach five-million before the end of last year was crazy and we've got plenty of online ideas to keep the recruitment drive going in 2013.
"Meanwhile, PKR Live is back at Easter time which we're really excited about and if the WPT Dublin is anything to go by, we're going to have another blast with our members from all over the world."
PKR Live is one of the poker calendar events of the year - hosted at Britain's first 'supercasino', Aspers Stratford in London. The Easter Weekend tournament will be played over three days, with a buy-in of $500. Entry can be gained through satellite poker games on PKR right now - prizes include standard buy-ins and $800 packages.
Since its introduction to the online poker world in 2004, PKR has averaged over half a million new members per year. If 2013 lives up to the excitement already surrounding PKR, that average could dramatically increase, particularly with the growing demand for poker on mobile devices.
