PKR launches real-money Apple iPad poker app

PKR members can play for real money on their Apple tablets, with apps for iPhone and Android coming soon…

“You can now play at the world’s most advanced poker site on your iPad!” shouts a PKR announcement that the company has created a real-money app.

“And don’t worry if you haven’t got an iPad, PKR for iPhone and Android is coming soon!” it continues.

The PKR iPad app is free to download from the App Store – just remember that the money you gamble at the table is real.

However, players cannot currently deposit money into their PKR accounts using the iPad app, so have to deposit using a web based cashier instead.

The software allows poker players to access ring games (where each hand starts with a new bet) and Sit & Gos (tournaments with a set number of players and a fixed buy-in). Multi-table tourneys will be added soon, PKR promises.

PKR promises that players will be able to use “all the great features which make PKR unique”. The game is played using 3D characters similar to those found in computer games, with the opportunity to show off signature moves at the table.

The iPad app connects with other players who connect using PCs and Macs, so you won’t lose touch with the regular crowd you play against online.
