They have been around along time. I remember way back in the day playing some poker there and I thought it was really neat how it was all 3D and you could chip shuffle etc. But I recall quite clearly support was about the rudest, short tempered non caring of any group ever and thats why I left...well that and the high quality graphics used to over heat my computer :cool:

I guess MG being involved means they switched from their 3D graphics to MG? I didnt know that.

Maybe the rudeness finally caught up with them and I dont feel sorry for them one bit because how they treated people

Vortran just issued a warning here:


I'm glad MGS made an announcement. They are one of the few software providers that do this.

Really great job by MG being the ones coming out with all this info as a warning. They may make crappy slots these days but they sure seem like a company that thrives off of having good morals too.

No surprise really, PKR went down the pan when they switched to MG last year. Long wait for verification, withdrawls took weeks and their forums were full of players who had enough of poor support.

MG will always be quick at press nowadays after the delays with Purple Lounge.

Here we go again. Hopefully players see at least some of their money. Wonder how many MG skins actually have went bust? And how many millions players have lost, its over 10 for sure.

And PKR joining MPN must have been one of the worst business decisions in online gambling ever.

Couldn't agree more - the ONLY selling point for PRK was the amazing graphics, which I LOVED!
(Same with True Poker before them)
But it seems that for some reason players prefer boring 2D poker with no atmosphere - I just don't get it :what:

Oh well - online Poker's dead now anyway - too many professionals & bots... :(

Sure - absolutely MUCH worse than the decisions of the owners of UB / Absolute software implementing a 'god mode' in their code so they could cheat their own customers (

:confused: Actually meant from their part (PKR). They had a lot of mainly British recreational players that liked the social aspect of old PKR. They would hardly want to play at a bot infested network with basically no banter etc.

And I know you work (or at least worked) for MG, the same company that for example hired EurolinxLydia as Head of Poker after Eurolinx/BoB bust among other shady stuff.

And everyone knows about FTP and UB/AP/Cereus so its hardly any breaking news.
