The meaning of P.K. (price kantera) has changed over the years. Today, when a bookie offers you odds of 1.5 on a game at 10 p.m., what he really means is that the game is currently +120 p.K. (or -180 p.K.). To make a long story short, people used to bet on P.K. when betting had regulations (Prices Must Stabilise), but now they will go all in on D.R. (Dog Racing).
An Overview of PK and Its Regulation
Let’s start with some general background on P.K. This is one of the oldest and most popular betting exchanges, with thousands of clients around the world. It was originally founded in the UK in the 1970s, and then launched in Germany and the Netherlands in the 1980s. Since then, it has expanded to other countries including France, Spain, and Italy.
Like many other online betting exchanges, PK offers clients the ability to bet on a variety of sports and sports events, including NFL (National Football League), NBA (National Basketball Association), MLB (Major League Baseball), NHL (National Hockey League), and UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship).
However, unlike some other exchanges, PK does not offer D.R. (Dog Racing) or A.C. (Archery). For those games, you will need to register on a different betting exchange that does offer them.
What Is D.R.?
D.R., short for Dog Racing, is a sport similar to horse racing but using dogs instead of horses. Over 300 dogs from around the world are entered in each race, which usually takes place at two p.m. local time, and runs for three quarters of an hour. The dogs are generally divided into groups called races, with each group comprising four or five dogs. The dogs compete for money (mostly fees paid by the public) and trophies. There are typically four races per day, with the final race generally being the most exciting one. It is traditionally held at the Leisure Day Racetrack in Handel (a city in the Netherlands) on Sunday afternoons. If you want to place a bet on D.R., you will need to visit Bookmaker’s D.R. website or use one of their apps.
What Is A.C.?
A.C., or Archery, is another sport similar to cross bow competition but with one major difference; archers use long-range weapons (usually crossbows or long-bores) to shoot at an imaginary target (called the bull’s-eye) that hangs from the ceiling. As in D.R., there are usually four archers in each team, and they shoot at the bull’s-eye multiple times per round, with the best score counting for the team. The competition lasts for three quarters of an hour and is primarily focused on fun and entertainment.
The Evolution of P.K.
As you can see above, P.K. has gone through a number of evolutions during its 70+ years. When it first launched, people used to bet on P.K. by spelling out their p.k. and then waiting for the p.k. to settle before placing a bet. In the 1980s, P.K. introduced the quick-bet option, which became very popular. The quick-bet option allowed clients to place a quick one-dollar (or five-dollar in some countries) bet without having to wait for the p.k. prices to settle. Back in those days, P.K. was mainly used for parimutuel (totalisator or scratch cards) wagers, and it generally accepted D.R. as a legitimate betting option. But over the years, P.K. has evolved to include more and more legitimate sports betting, with the most popular games including NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB. It also added A.C. in 2013, allowing it to accept archery bets (which it already offered at pari-mutuel races).
Using P.K. To Place A Bet
Let’s take a look at how to use P.K. to place a bet. As with many other online gambling platforms, you first need to sign up for an account on P.K.. Then, you will be taken to a dashboard where you can see all of your account’s various stats. From here, you can click on the Activate button to start trading. Now, you can either select D.R. (Dog Racing) or A.C. (Archery) from the list of available sports, or you can click on the plus sign in front of a game to see a dropdown with all of its varieties. You can place a single bet, or you can use the featured betting strategy known as accumulator to make money from multiple bets. When a bet is placed, the status line at the top of the dashboard will show the current status of the bet. For example, if the status shows “Pending,” this means that the bet has not yet been settled. But don’t worry, P.K. will notify you by email when a bet is settled. In most cases, this will happen within 24 hours. You can also click on the email icon in the top right corner of the dashboard to get an instant email notification when a bet is settled.
