PKR.fr opens its virtual doors.
 
Poker players throughout France can now enjoy the excitement of online poker in the 3D ambience of Brit firm PKR.com following the opening of its French virtual doors this week.
 
PKR was awarded its French licence recently after it met all the requirements of the Authorité de Régulation des Jeux en Ligne (ARJEL), and its dedicated French site will offer a range of real money cash games, sit and go’s and tournaments and a full play money version where new users can learn the game without risk.
 
Jean-Pierre Houareau, President, PKR France SAS said; “We’re delighted to be able to welcome French players to PKR.fr where they can enjoy playing on our unique software. Our French community is of great importance to us, and we look forward to welcoming them back to PKR with a great range of promotions and tournaments.”
 
Special offers for launch include a generous first deposit bonus for all players, a cash bonus for verified accounts together with a range of freerolls and satellites to PKR Live V in London.
 
Two of the hottest young players in French poker – Adrien ‘zlatan35’ Allain and Marc ‘waswini’ Bariller – will act as brand ambassadors for the PKR.fr site. Allain has already won an APT event for over  Euro 391,000 and recently finished second in BPT Deauville for Euro 46,500. Bariller turned a $5 freeroll win into a six figure bankroll in the space of two years. Both players recently cashed in the World Series of Poker Main Event in Las Vegas.
