PKR operates a 3D poker website designed to give players the feeling they are at a real poker table. The firm is the brainchild of Jez San, who set up the games developer Argonaut aged 16. PKR was founded to offer global online gaming but the industry changed just as it launched and new regulations excluded it from the American market. The firm boasts almost 5m players in the Netherlands, France, Germany, Sweden and Canada. Revenue is generated by charging fees per hand and entry fees to tournaments. International sales rose by 82% a year, from £7m in 2007 to £23.2m in 2009, under Malcolm Graham, chief executive.
