PKR Launch 'Refer a Friend' Bonuses

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Aug. 10, 2012) - Britain's largest 3D poker room is giving away cash and free tournament tickets to players who successfully encourage their friends to sign up to the site.

For each referral, PKR are rewarding players with three tournament tickets. These tournaments pay out a total of $2000 in real cash - quality value for a free poker entry. Members receive personalised prizes, tailored to match their playing level.

On top of that, PKR are adding an extra bonus for account holders who have already deposited cash onto the site. These players are entitled to real cash for referring a friend. A reward of up to $150 is divided between the player and the friend they refer. Members who are yet to deposit can unlock these cash rewards by depositing as little as $10 into their account.

PKR are promoting the scheme via Facebook and Twitter, amongst their regular special offer activity. The deal is expected to bring an influx of new faces to the various poker games on the site, raising the average amount of entrants per tournament and thus raising the average prize pool.

Meanwhile, in the spring issue of the PKR magazine, Stacked, one high-roller has described how he never deposited a penny and went on to play in the PKR Masters - the most prestigious tournament on the PKR calendar. PKR are hoping for similar success stories this summer and this referral scheme is the beginning.

A spokesperson for PKR commented:

"PKR is all about playing online poker as if you're right there at the felt in a live tournament. So, we want as many players as possible to join in our big games and pack the virtual seats out completely. The more people that enter, the more money is up for grabs and we love the idea that dreams can be made on the back of a free ticket.

"Never has our tagline been more appropriate - just say to your friends 'Let's Play' and get them to sign up - you both receive a reward so it's a win-win really."
