Thursday August 18,2011 : 3D ONLINE POKER SITE CELEBRATES FIVE YEARS OF OPERATIONS
PKR has made impressive progress
Five years on from its launch on 17 August, 2006 with bold new graphics and online poker software, PKR.com has made impressive progress as a stand-alone internet poker operation, thanks to good marketing and a sound reputation.
Not even the untimely announcement of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, a move that kept PKR completely out of the US market on the eve of its launch, could slow PKR down as it attracted more players and delivered a stream of innovations to keep them happy.
Over the last five years the company has been given a number of independent awards, including EGR's ‘Poker Operator of the Year’ in 2010 and the International Gaming Awards ‘Online Poker Operator of the Year’ in both 2010 and 2011. Alongside these industry accolades, PKR was also recognised as the fastest growing technology company in the UK by the 2010 Sunday Times Tech Track 100.
The company has achieved some remarkable milestones along the way:
* PKR.com has received 18.454 million visits from January 2011 to August 2011.
* Its website has received 10.5 million unique visitors from January 2011 to August 2011.
* Nearly 4.5 million Players have registered on PKR.
* Almost $1 billion in bets have been placed on its site
* 64,289,442 real money Sit & Go’s have been played so far.
* 20,636,477 real money multi-table tournaments have been played.
* $634,631,939 has been won in tournament play on PKR
* A total of 1,805,873,149 real and play money hands have been dealt.
* 582,475 Posts have been made on the PKR.com player's forum.
