PKR Poker adds new Gaming Options for Recreational Players

PKR PokerOnline poker sites add new gaming options on a regular basis to ensure their members are happy with their selection of poker gaming. At PKR Poker, players have a unique gaming option as the 3D poker site provides a variety of cash gaming and tournament selections. Members of PKR see constant updates to software as well as additions to gaming selection for an overall enjoyable experience online.

A recent trend in online poker gaming involves lottery style games taking on the style of poker sit and go’s. PKR Poker has gotten in on the trend by offering a new gaming option titled Jackpot Sit & Gos. This new feature will offer players a different gaming option while visiting PKR but is not necessarily something new to the online poker industry.

The new Jackpot Sit & Go’s will take place just as the quick lottery style games found online. Three players will be online taking part in a competition for random prizes that are determined during game play. The hyper-turbo gaming format will include just 500 chips and players will simply have an added way to earn money while playing poker online. The prize will be given at random but will be from 2x the buy-in to 1,000 times the buy-in. The majority of the prizes will be double the buy-in, which is a great way to double your money during game play, on top of what you win while playing cash games.

As you log on to PKR Poker, you can take part in the Jackpot Sit & Go’s with a variety of buy-ins. The games will include low stakes such as $0.30 and $1.50. Players can also log on to play in games with stakes of $6 and $12. The trend for this lottery style gaming has become quite popular especially in the lower stakes. Players want to have the opportunity to enjoy real money gaming and have additional prizes up for grabs.

At PKR, the lower buy-in games of $0.30 and $1.50 will have a rake of 7.15% and the higher stakes will have a rake of 6.2%. Each rake of these games is considered an implied rake which means the probability of the player playing for a certain prizes is put over an infinite number of games. This number is then compared to the overall buy-ins earned.

The prizes in the higher stakes will be much larger and will pay out to three places as the numbers of players taking part increases. Games with a prize pool multiplier of 2 will have a prize pool of $24 and will pay out to one place. A ten prize pool multiplier will have a prize pool of $120 and will pay out to 1 place. Going on the high end, a prize pool multiplier of $1,000 will create a prize pool of $12,000 which will pay 3 places. The probability of this taking place is 1 in 20,000.

Players have shifted to the lottery style games so the number of players competing in the Jackpot Sit & Go’s continues to increase. The ring game traffic has declined based on these new games, but players who want to take part in the new offering can easily find a way to compete and hopefully earn a nice prize.

It is interesting to see PKR begin to offer these gaming options, especially since many other sites have begun to offer the lottery style games. PokerStars is the last site before PKR to launch the lottery style games which can be found in the lobby under Spin & Go’s. These games were added to PokerStars under the Spanish and French sites.
