    Fans of 3-Dimensional poker will be glad to hear that PKR have finally releaed a real-money poker app for the iPad and iPad Mini. The bad news is it is only available to players in the United Kingdom for now. The new PKR iPad app supports both ring games and sit-n-go tournaments with mult-table tournaments in the pipeline.

    PKR offer new players an instant $5 bonus so you can try out their unique 3D poker client for free without risking any of your own wedge.

    I'd really like to try this app. Any idea when it will be released outside the United Kingdom?

    I've only tried the play money tables but the graphics are awesome. You do need a newer iPhone or iPad though. My son has one of the early iPads and the app doesn't run quiet as smoothly.

    Unfortunately the app is still only available in the UK. We haven't heard yet when it will be released in other countries but they've obviously invested a huge amount of money in this 3D app so you can be sure they are working hard to get it released in a bunch of other countries.

    Great news. Any idea when the PKR app will be available in Australia?

    Why only 4 new countries? Surely they've tested it enough at this stage and can launch it in Canada, Australia, Germany etc?

    Unfortunately Apple will only allow real money gambling apps into the App Store of countries that have very progressive and open laws when it comes to mobile and online gambling. If there is any grey areas in terms of legality, Apple tend to err on the side of caution. This is bad news for many bookmakers, casinos and poker rooms who have trouble getting their app into the App Store outside of countries like the United Kingdom and Ireland.

    They have released a 2D version now for Android that's only 50Mb which is a tenth of the size of the 3D version. Does anyone know if they'll be releasing this for iPhone and iPad also? I don't really care about the 3d graphics, I just want to be able to play their Sit & Go tournaments on my iOS devices.

    Yes, PKR have already released a 2D iOS version that offers the same features but without the 3 dimensional avatars and playing environments. Visit PKR for full information on how to install both the Android and iPhone 2D app.

    Is there a PKR web app that you can play from the Safari browser of an iPhone or iPad in any country? The PKR iTunes App Store version is only available in Europe :-(

    No, at present only native versions of the PKR app are available for iOS and Android devices. Due to the complexity of the 3D graphics, it would be impossible to offer the 3D version as a browser based app at present. However, they may be able to develop a HTML5 version of the 2D PKR app since it requires far less bandwidth.

    is there a html5 powered version for iphone? i'd love to try the pkr app but it's only available in about 5 european countries.

    Sadly not yet, although we suspect part of the reason the development of a 2D version of the app was the first step in creating a PKR web app for iOS.

    the 3d graphics look awesome on my iphone 6l but i recently switched to the 2d version because it doesn't drain the battery quiet as quickly.

    Why is the PKR android app available everywhere, while the iPhone and iPad is only available in a handful of european countries.

    The problem is PKR have not yet released a version that is web based. This means that iPhone and iPad owners can only download the PKR app for the App Store on iTunes. Unfortunately, Apple only permit real money gambling apps in a very limited number of countries. Android users on the other hand can download the PKR apk install file directly from the PKR website.
