The rakeback payments are automatically made, by PKR Poker to your PKR Poker account on or around the 5th of the month, definitely no later than the 10th of the month for the previous month's play. In addition to cash game rake, tournament fees are included in rakeback as well. Bonuses are the only deduction from MGR at PKR.

PKR does not accept players from the following countries: Belgium, Cuba, Greece, Hong Kong, Iran, Israel, North Korea, Puerto Rico, Spain, South Africa, South Korea, Syrian Arab Republic, Turkey, United States, and Vietnam. PKR Poker offers some of the most original graphics available for an online poker room. This can be a bit resource intensive, but, most fairly new computers should be able to play up to four tables (their maximum) without too many problems.

PKR Review

Summary:

PKR is a European-licensed, standalone room known for their videogame-like 3D software. Players can play their robust software via a PC or Mac download. PKR puts a heavy emphasis on player community, as the site offers both a forum and a Facebook-like social networking.

Games at PKR are almost exclusively run at No Limit Hold’em with some limited PL Omaha action. Daily guaranteed tournaments abound, highlighted by the monthly $125,000 Masters, with the final table broadcast to over 35 million homes across the globe. Beginner players will also be attracted to the wide variety of daily freerolls, points tournaments and micro buy-in tournaments.

PKR offers rakeback up to 32% and a 100% up to $150 bonus. PKR also offers a VIP Program that awards players with special freeroll entries and tournament tickets. A PKR Points store allows players to exchange their PKR Point for merchandise such as iPods and tournament tickets that add to a player’s total return.

Games

PKR offers games at all versions of Texas Hold’em including No Limit, Fixed Limit and Pot Limit. Most of the running games are available at No Limit Hold’em up to $25/$50. Games are available as low as $0.02/$0.04 for beginners and small stakes players. At Fixed Limit and Pot Limit, it is a different story with most of the action only available at the smallest stakes even though games are available from $0.01/$0.02 up to $2/$4 at Pot Limit Hold’em and $0.05/$0.10 to $30/$60 at Fixed Limit. Tables are available with 2, 6 or 10 seats.

At the other games, Pot Limit Omaha is the only other game with notable participation, although PL Omaha Hi/Lo, Limit Omaha and Limit Omaha Hi/Lo are also offered. For Pot Limit Omaha, players should be able to locate games up to $1/$2 during peak times with tables available up to $10/$20.

Most of the cash game tables at PKR are what we would call “Standard” tables that do not have any special style to them such as Turbo or Speed tables. Beginner tables are offered to new players at the very lowest limits. Players can play the games in a standard or 3D version.

SNGs

PKR has mostly No Limit Hold’em SNGs available, but they also offer Pot Limit Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo. Buy-ins for the No Limit Hold’em SNGs range from $0.10+$0.02 all the way up to $1000+$50. Most of the running action is up to $100+$9. Also, while tables are available in 6, 10, 12 or 24 seats, the overwhelming majority of action is at the 6 and 10 seat tables. Most of the multi-table action is at $2+$0.35.

The only other non-NL Hold’em tables that can be seen are $0.10 Giveways for Pot Limit Hold’em. These are essentially SNG freerolls that pay $0.06 to 1st and $0.04 to 2nd.

SNG game styles come in three varieties --- Turbo, Speed and Double or Nothing. Also, at the low buy-in tables, Beginner tables are also run. In Turbo games, players are given 5000 chips and the blinds increase every hand whereas at Speed tables they increase every four minutes. Standard tables start players with 2000 chips and 10 minute blind levels.

Double or Nothing tournaments award the top half of the participants with double their original buy-in. Also available at the low buy-in levels ($5+$0.50 and below) are Terminator Xtreme SNGs, which are Bounty SNGs where the entire buy-in goes to Bounty payouts for knocking out other players. In Phase SNGs, are PKR version of Steps tournaments.

Example: At a $1/$2 fixed limit Hold'em game with 6 players seated and dealt cards, $0.25 in rake would be taken for each $5 in the pot up to a total of $1 in rake. Once the pot reaches $20, no further rake is taken. "5%" represents the % of the pot that is raked from the table at the time the rake is taken. Because many pots do not end up being raked (i.e. if no flop is seen) or if the pot is in between rake levels, effective rake levels are lower.

RakeTracker | The Rakeback Pioneer.

Believe it or not, there was a time in online poker’s history that there was no such thing as rakeback. When the seeds of Rake Tracker were first planted in 2003 almost all poker rewards came in the form of bonuses. Soon players wanted more. The RakeTracker business first started small, offering rakeback to players on a one-on-one basis and through referrals.

As the business grew, RakeTracker.com was launched as one of the first full-scale rakeback providers on the internet providing players with additional perks that they could receive in addition to bonuses – payout out rakeback since 2004. Now many years later, players still flock to RakeTracker for industry leading rakeback deals, monthly poker promotions in the hundreds of thousands of dollars and top quality customer support.

What is Rakeback?

All live and online card rooms take “rake” and “tournament fees” to run and operate their games. The amount of rake or fees taken will vary by game type and stake levels, but will generally be 5% of each pot for ring games and around 10% of the buy-in for tournaments.

With rakeback, players are returned a percentage of the rake that is attributed to them, usually 27%-40%. Simply put: Receiving rakeback and other promotions help winning poker players win more and losing poker players lose less. There is no reason not to get rakeback!

Getting rakeback is easy through RakeTracker: simply , then using our referral links download the poker site’s software, add the tracker to your account and you are ready to go! Detailed instructions are available on each site’s review page.

Why Should I Join RakeTracker?

Joining RakeTracker is FREE and easy. Creating a FREE account will give you instant access to rakeback from two dozen rooms on all major networks. RakeTracker members will also receive access to over $300,000 in monthly promotions including: Rake Races, Rake Chases, Freerolls and free poker coaching. Refer your friends to RakeTracker and earn $40 per friend and up to 4% of the rake they generate – income for life!
