Online gambling site scoops 1 million users.
The ever-popular online poker room PKR reached a pinnacle when it signed up its one-millionth user. This signing comes after a year of growth for the website, which has come out of nowhere to quickly establish itself as a major player in the online gambling market.
PKR's state of the art 3D graphics and immersive game system, which allow players to customise characters and interact with opponents using a range of body language and emotes, has proven irresistible to players around the world who have flocked to the site in record numbers since its August 2006 launch.
As a stand-alone operator, PKR.com has been able to demonstrate capability to generate a critical mass of players. Their product, which boasts a unique interactive feel, works successfully alongside an innovative marketing campaign that has drawn a new generation of players to the game.
Now, in its second year PKR.com is ready to bring in record numbers to build a platform that will challenge the industry and place it in a favourable market position. Licensed in Alderney, PKR.com is regulated by a jurisdiction recently 'white listed' by the Department for Culture Media and Sport in the UK. This will allow PKR.com to expand advertising efforts in one of its key markets while many rivals are frozen out.
The site has also avoided the US, and having never accepted any cash bets from US players, which boded well for the site in the light of the October passing of the UIGEA that effectively outlawed online gambling.
