LONDON--(CCNMatthews - Jan 26, 2006) -

Developed by some of the brightest stars in the video games industry, PKR ( is set to revolutionize the world of online poker by offering poker players and video gamers the most complete online poker experience yet seen.

Featuring stunning graphics together with a uniquely engaging and immersive gaming system, PKR brings an unparalleled sense of realism to online poker and promises to put the player at the heart of the action like never before.

PKR's proprietary system features high-resolution, real time 3D technology and realistic character animations to deliver visually stunning environments and realistic gameplay. Whether it's using emotes and body language to express feelings, reading and giving off poker tells or trying to intimidate opponents by showing off a range of chip tricks, PKR breathes life into the online game.

PKR also gives all players complete control of their in-game character, both in terms of appearance and behaviour; just as in real life, no two PKR characters will be the same. From setting facial features to choosing from a wide range of clothing, PKR allows players to invest their time and imagination into developing well-rounded and credible online personas.

Players will be able to trade loyalty points for additional clothing and chip tricks, rewarding them for long term participation. Certain tournaments will also award special bracelets to the winner, allowing successful players to further customise their characters and demonstrate their poker prowess.

Fans of online poker will also be pleased to learn that speed of play has not been sacrificed, with PKR offering a hands-per-hour rate comparable with any other leading poker room. And despite its high-end look, the first release of PKR will be configured to work on practically any PC made within the past 4 to 5 years, although a broadband internet connection is strongly recommended.

PKR will be free to download from the website this spring, and CD-ROMs containing the software and other resources will be available on request.
