Chat

At paddypowerpoker.com we want to build a community so why not try and talk to people from around the world using our chat facilities.

Don’t be shy and get involved as it helps create a great atmosphere for games. paddypowerpoker.com offers two methods to chat to other players, Table Chat and Lobby Chat.

Table Chat

To chat to other players when seated at a table:

  • Type what you'd like to say in the box in the game chat window
  • Press ‘Chat’ when you're done
  • Your chat will now appear in the Game Chat box for everyone to see

Lobby Chat

You can now take a break from the tables and chat with fellow paddypowerpoker.com players in our Poker Lobby. Here you can get the low down on how everyone is doing, vent that you’re Aces were cracked for the third time in a row, brag about that massive pot you've just taken down or see if any of your buddies are on-line chatting or playing. All you have to do to get in on the action is type your message into the text box and click the 'Send' button.

To access Lobby Chat simply:

  • Click the button in the main poker window, or main navigation link as shown below
  • When you are not chatting you can simply minimise the window and check back on it later.

From time to time our friendly poker hosts will join in the fun with pop-quizzes and promo’s so be sure to check back regularly for your chance to win some prizes!

Please Note: Bear in mind that in both Table Chat and Lobby Chat everyone can see what you're saying, so please refrain from saying anything nasty, offensive or rude. If you do so, one of our hosts will intervene and remove your chat facility for a period or time or indefinitely if it is deemed necessary. So please be polite.
