Let’s be honest – table talk is a big part of poker, and while yelling and cursing or giving someone googly eyes doesn’t exactly have the same effect in a text box, we try at iHoldem to put a little of that animation back in your game.
While you are typing several words into your chat box, your words can be magically transformed to animated Smilies. For example, if you type fish, you’ll see a shark swim through for a quick meal. Alternatively, type donkey and see a donkey kicking up his heels in ardent protest.
There loads of available smilies you can use, but we’re always working on new ones, some of which have yet to be used!
