PKR Casino is de casino-arm van de vertrouwde pokerroom, PKR. Als u zich afvraagt waar PKR voor staat, dan staat het nergens voor – het is gewoon ‘poker’ geschreven in hoofdletters en vervolgens ‘omringd door medeklinkers’. PKR is een bedrijf in eigen handen, en is gevestigd in Alderney in de Britse Kanaaleilanden. Het draait onder de licenties van Alderney en het Verenigd Koninkrijk.
PKR zelf werd opgericht door Jez San in de zomer van 2006. Het doel was om een realistische, 3D-achtige omgeving te scheppen waarin de spelers kunnen spelen met behulp van avatars. Dit aspect van de site werd afgedaan als een beetje ‘gimmicky’ en de software kan een beetje onhandig en onbetrouwbaar zijn, dus PKR bood vervolgens ook ‘normale’ software aan. In 2016 kondigde PKR de migratie van het huidige, standalone poker platform aan naar het Microgaming Poker Network (MPN).
Dus is het PKR Casino een MZNG ervaring, of een hoop CRP? Lees verder om erachter te komen…
Hold onto your hats – PKR Casino has a very generous welcome offer of a maximum of £1,200 (or €1,200), split over your first four deposits at the casino, with fifty free spins added on for good measure.
Your bonus bonanza is split as follows:
To claim your bonus all you need to do is open an account at PKR Casino, choose your deposit method and your currency, and make a deposit of at least £/€10 within seven days of the completion of your registration. Your fifty free spins must be played on the desktop (not mobile) version of the online slot Ariana. Your free spins must be used within three days, and your welcome bonus within fourteen days.
Your bonus and any free spins winnings must be wagered forty (40) times, which is about standard for such offers. Not all games contribute equally – here are the differing wagering contributions:
All your wagering expectations are explained very clearly in the site’s T&Cs.
Other promos were a little scant when we visited PKR Casino. The only other offer we could find was ‘Free Games Frenzy’ which earns you free games on slots every day.
The site does offer a VIP scheme, though. This is on a six-tier basis, from ‘Red’ to ‘Ruby Elite’. You begin on ‘Red’ level as soon as you sign up with the casino, and you earn one VIP point for every £/€10 you spend at the casino (or PKR’s poker site). You need to earn 100,000 VIP points a month to make it to ‘Ruby Elite’ level. Naturally, the higher you climb up the scheme, the better the benefits including bonus credits and personalised offers. You can also redeem every 1,000 VIP points you earn for £/€10.
PKR Casino is actually split two ways: PKR Casino and PKR Vegas. PKR Casino has software from Microgaming, whereas PKR Vegas just has software from Microgaming … no, we’re not sure why this is split either!
The content is slots-heavy, as you might expect. PKR Casino has well over three hundred slots, and most of them are also available at PKR Vegas too. There are some really nice ones too, such as Hot as Hades and Jurassic Park.
There are eight versions of roulette and twenty-nine versions of blackjack, plus baccarat, craps, casino poker and sic bo. Video Poker fans should be more than satisfied with twenty-three versions of their favourite gambling pastime.
PKR Casino earns a ‘down vote’ for not having a live casino.
All software here is provided by Microgaming. PKR Casino used to be powered by Playtech, but we think the switch to Microgaming is in line with PKR Poker’s switch to the Microgaming Poker Network. Microgaming has many very decent games, including plenty of top-notch table games.
The site has a mobile version. There are not as many games as on the desktop site, but there’s more than enough.
There is no live casino here, but there is live support available 24/7 … although when we tried it we were ‘1 in a queue of 1’ and the waiting time was ‘3 seconds’ … but no one responded to us at all! Must have been on a coffee break!
There are plenty of ways to fund your gambling activities at PKR Casino. The site accepts debit and credit cards (including the virtual credit card Entropay), PayPal, Neteller, Skrill, Paysafecard (which now incorporates Ukash) and wire transfers.
The minimum you can deposit is £/€10, and there are no fees. Deposits are more or less instantaneous.
You are allowed one, fee-free withdrawal every seven days up to a maximum of £/€2,000 per month. Other withdrawals incur a two percent fee. The minimum withdrawal you can make is £/€20. Withdrawals take twenty-four to forty-eight hours for PayPal, Skrill, Neteller and Paysafecard, and three to five days for credit and debit cards. Wire transfers can take up to seven days.
Most of this info is available in PKR Casino’s very detailed FAQ section.

Aside from the curiously shy live support, we like what we find at PKR Casino a lot. If we were being picky, we might moan at the lack of a live casino (given that Microgaming does have its own live casino operation), and the fact that there’s only one software provider, although at least with Microgaming it’s a very good one.
We like the design of the site, the transparency of the welcome bonus offer, the VIP scheme and the clear and concise FAQ section. In fact, we are of the opinion that PKR Casino is a bit of a WNNR!
