PKR Poker has added a host of new multi-table tournaments to its schedule and introduced a new welcome bonus program which allows players to choose one that best suits them. The new tournaments will be offered via the same 3D software PKR uses for its cash games and events. The formats in which some of the tournaments can be played are – deep stack, 8 seated, 6-max, re-buys and 7-handed. Triple chance, speed and bounty are a few other formats. Based on buy-ins, there are three levels of tournaments at the site – low stakes (between $1 and $5), mid-stakes (between $6 and $19), and high-stakes (between $20 and $100). NOTE: PKR is NOT US friendly
PKR Low-Stakes Tournaments
In this category, PKR Poker offers tournaments with blinds that change at least every 12 minutes. The highest amount of chips you can get to start a game is 3,000. This is offered in Mini PKR Open, which follows the regular tournament format. The player field in the events can range between 150 and 500. All tournaments come with a guaranteed prize pool. The highest amount guaranteed is $4,000, which is offered in Gold Rush Re-buy, a 6-handed event requiring a $2.10 buy-in.
PKR Mid-Stakes Tournaments
There are two types of mid-stakes tournaments based on buy-ins – those requiring $6 and $12. The guaranteed prize pool ranges between $1,000 (in most 6-max events) and $2,000. PKR Poker expects a field in the range of 90 and 330 at most events in this category.
PKR High-Stakes Tournaments
The greatest number of multi-table tournaments PKR Poker added to its schedule are in the high-roller category. There are deep stacks, regular, add-on and 6-, 7- and 8- max events. Most events have a starting chip stack of 5,000 and others have 3,000. The highest guaranteed prize pool of $7,500 is offered with 6-Max Deep Stack. The lowest, of $1,250, accompanies Deep Stack Extended Levels. In most events the blinds go up every 15 minutes. The fields in the events are likely to max-out at 150 or 160, but in PKR Open it can hit 350.
PKR Poker Freerolls and Money-Added Events
In addition to multi-table tournaments, the online poker room hosts several money-added tournaments and freerolls for players who are part of its VIP program. There are four levels in the program – member, bronze, silver and gold. Those in the first level get freerolls worth $1,000 every month and money-added tournaments requiring a buy-in of $2.35, capable of bringing in $500.
At the Bronze level players get freerolls worth $2,000 per month, and $1,000 added to $8.80 buy-in tournaments. Players at the Silver level get $3,000 freerolls monthly and $16.50 buy-in events with $2,500 added. Those at the highest level – Gold – get $5,000 monthly in freerolls and money-added events, which have a buy-in requirement of $33.
Choice of Three Welcome Bonuses at PKR
PKR Poker has added three lucrative bonuses to its welcome offers. Players can select one based on their skill level in poker. The bonuses are for beginner, intermediate and advanced poker players. Beginners can avail a bonus of $5, which will be credited instantly to their account at PKR Poker. To get the bonus amount, they have to get one PKR Point. To inform the site that you want the bonus, you have to use a code – welcome5.
The bonus for players at the Intermediate level is a 100% match offer which gives money as they play. They can get up to 5% each time they meet the criteria set by the site. The maximum amount that can be earned through the offer is $150. The bonus code to be used is – welcome150. The Advanced bonus is also a match offer, which gives 125% of the deposit amount. Players can get as much as $500 through the offer. Like the Intermediate welcome bonus, the offer allows them to earn money as they play. The site credits the amount to the qualifying player’s account when they meet targets set by PKR Poker.
As the offers are first deposit bonuses, you have to make a payment to your online poker account to qualify for them. The beginner’s bonus requires $10; the intermediate, $25; and advanced, $150, as first deposit amounts.
That said, for the exclusive promotions and bonuses moving forward, you might want to use our bonus code BOCORP.
Besides the bonus, the offer comes with additional free gifts which players get when they make their first deposit at the site. Some of the rewards are – a ticket to play in a Mini Masters event with a $10,000 GTD prize pool, 1,000 PKR Points, and several entries to top-level freerolls in which $3,000 will be up for grabs. Players automatically get upgraded to the site’s Club PKR, which offers a host of benefits that can make the time and money spent at the site worth it.
