PKRPKR a British online poker website recently announced that it has decided to make significant enhancements to its flagship products as it looks to enhance its customer service offerings. PKR is one of the biggest 3D poker sites in the world and wants to offer customers an advanced gaming experience.

The main product from PKR is Club PKR which acts as a key arm for the brand as it focuses on bridging the gap between live play and online gaming. From the beginning of August, the club is rolling out changes and will continue to do so till all upgrades have been completed.

The most significant enhancement that PKR members will be confronted with is the change from Club PKR Lotteries to a new weekly $5k Freeroll.

In a release, a PKR official said that

Club PKR has always been an exciting project for our members and our developers. These changes are all about improving on the model we all love already, so our members get even better rewards for their loyalty with us. It’s a nice way for us to build relationships with our long-term players and make sure there is enough innovation on the site to keep them excited. For new members, the levelling system is the ideal measure of progress – it’s surprising how quickly some ‘fresh fish’ can zip up the ranks

The new Freeroll will be played every Sunday around 16:00pm (GMT) and will be open to those players who have a ‘Member level’ or above. Those players who have a high level membership will get bigger starting stacks, which is in line with the original loyalty bonus scheme of Club PKR. Those players who are interested in getting a higher ranking, will have to play more games on PKR and earn points as they play along. The membership point ranking rule is simple as the more points a player earns, the more benefits they can avail from Club PKR.

The PKR official went on to say that

When we’ve talked about Club PKR in the past, we have put an emphasis on bridging that online / offline gap and nothings changed here. This new format is just another way for us to recognize and reward our valued members – just like a bricks & mortar casino manager would do with his or her regular players.

Those who are interested to know more about PKR or how they can avail Club PKR membership, can go to the official PKR website.
