London’s only dedicated live poker venue, the Fox Poker Club in association with PKR.com, has been transformed into a real-life 3D replica for online users of PKR.com – the first time a true live environment has been accurately mapped for the site.
Players of 3D online poker site PKR.com can now virtually visit the full 6,500 square feet of the Fox Poker Club and play on any of its 20 tables, exploring every aspect and intricate detail of the famous venue, all the way from the bar to the ‘Fox Poker Club’ inscribed playing chips and tables.
The club, which is situated on Shaftesbury Avenue has been painstakingly recreated by PKR.com’s developers, giving poker fans a chance to see what it’s all about before coming down for a taste of the real-life action.
The presentation is supported by promotional offers for players who sign up for a new PKR account and deposit using the ‘FOX’ bonus code. Giveaways include different levels of live tournament vouchers, private dealer dealt tables for the evening at the Fox Poker Club and discounts on all Fox Poker Club merchandise.
Chris North, managing director of Fox Poker Club, said this week:
“I’m absolutely thrilled with how the 3D poker room looks and just how similar it is to the real thing. The whole team at the Fox Poker Club sees it as a flattering addition – our members can now ‘visit’ the club without leaving their computer screen, and we’re hoping that a few more players on PKR.com are impressed with what they see and pop down for a game very soon.”
