Do you join in Online chat or not?

Just wondering if, when playing at a casino that provides an online chat facility, e.g. 3Dice/JackpotParty, do you join in or ignore?

I play for entertainment and relaxation, but all my energy is focused on playing, thinking about what game to switch to, bet size, etc. I really don't have the inclination to join in idle chat with other players. I find it too distracting.

Ditto when I used to play at B&M casinos in the UK. I would get resentful when other players would come and watch my game play, and strike up conversations. I would respond, while privately wishing they were on the dark side of the moon. :oops:

Perhaps I am the Player from Hell, even though I try always to be courteous and polite. But whatever, online chat sessions drive me scatty.

Disclaimer: I don't have an account at 3Dice, but I know they have the online chat facility.

So...any comments?

You aren't alone juiceyfruit ;), I too find the chat much too distracting, unless it's on bingo of course

Nice to here that there are more boring people like me:p
I'm so scared of chatting. I don't even talk to live-chat in a casino if I don't have to. Someone asked me the other day if I have MSN:eek:
I'm really a social creature in normal life. Never afraid of talking to people.
So why am I so afraid of writing talking to people directly? I have no idea;)

I don't like live chat as you play.
I am playing to win something.
If I want to chat with someone I would go to some sort of chat room.
And I am not in that chit-chat anyways as you go.
But I will talk on the phone for hours :lolup:

I think sometimes, that it's harder to get emotions across through typing ;)

I don't play at online casinos that have chat, for the most part anyway. When I play it's to try and double or triple my deposit as fast as I can and get out!

This is about the only place I have ever done any chatting at online because this is the best place to chat anywhere on the internet! IMHO :thumbsup:

I use the chat available at 3Dice quite a bit.

I think its a great idea, it gives you direct contact with the CS team, and you also get to know the CS reps a lot better as most of the time they interact with players and show they are still human, whilst still being professional.

While playing I don't find it too distracting. When playing for real I am more concentrated on my spins than anything but still pop in to say something every now and then, when playing tournaments I am in there more and set tournament spins to auto play, so it does take out the boring factor of the spins.

I have met some great people via being on 3Dice chat also which is a bonus. I guess its each to there own but I find it unique and enjoy it alot.

I cannot comment on Jackpot Party as I cannot play there.

Hey everyone. I have chatted very little in 3dice chat. I have tried to include myself in the conversations but I have gotten ignored. I dont feel included so I stopped chatting. One time I thanked a player for starting a tourney and I got laughed at. I felt so small, so I dont chat. It seems to me that there are a small handful of the veteran players that only include them that chat, they dont seem to want to get to know the newer players, and again this is why I have decided to stop chatting. :(

I'm with Matt on this one. I love the chat feature on 3dice. It makes playing tourneys more pleasurable and I have met some awesome people on there, and of course some not so pleasant ones as well. I participate in all chat games (added benefit) and if I am winning in real I do tons of extras for the peeps in chat. If you need help from support they are there to help. Sometimes I do find it a little distracting when I am playing, but it comes with the territory I guess :p

Hi Carly, sorry to hear about your experience in chat. I believe I helped you with one of the tourneys one night that you won, Hobo I think it was. Just start chatting that is what I did when I first joined, was ignored at first and I pushed my way through and now I can't stop chatting lol. Hope to see you chatting soon ;)

i'm with blonde and matt at 3 dice i think there chat is very valuable as a tool about your game play as a player can inquire directly to the casino manager and owener and staff about any mattert of money or tech stuff

the social aspect is a great thing all casinos should have IMHO, and all poker rooms on line have chat in real time at the tables with observer's able to chime in

and chat isen't mandatory so what prompted this thread :confused:


:) im prolly the shyest guy there and i love it :)

Yeah you did, and yes I read chat all the time. I am a bit shy so that could be it too lol. I do have some mental issues LOL and I isolate myself from the world, so online stuff works for me. I will try to involve myself more. I didnt mean to bash anyone in 3dice chat, and I am sorry if I did, I was just explaining how i felt. You all seem like really good people. And I also feel 3dice is the best casino :) I am happy to have found it. :)

Sorry for the slight derail, I have noticed an alarming trend in people I speak to here in PM`s etc that have isolated themselves from the world and obviously take up gambling as a form of escapism, as you are a psychology student you may have some insight in this?:).

And nope, I never use chat when playing slots etc, i`m way to shy :oops:.

Ha! Me too. I think my record so far has been 6 hours on the phone to my sister in Oz. Also, the day job means that I am in conf calls and IM chats all day long, so that might be why I avoid this type of thing when I am 'off-duty'.

I use the chat available at 3Dice quite a bit.

That sounds like one of the greatest benefits of online chatting. However the sheer banality of some of the conversations is a turn off, but this could be because I don't ever seem to get past discussing the weather...:D And yet, in the day job, I am brilliant at building virtual relationships. Strange,eh.

Oh Carly, I really feel for you. I think to join in online chat you need a very thick skin at the beginning, then just keep pushing your way in until eventually you become one of the 'veteran players'.

However, having said that, sometimes the cliques are so strong there is no room for outsiders. And the members of the cliques can have such an arrogant attitude that to even to attempt to join in incurs their wrath and scorn.

But there are plenty of good people out there, so please don't stop trying.

What casinos actually have real time chat, other than 3Dice and JackpotParty? Anyone know?

And do casino managers interract with players during real time chats? I have only seen players involved in the chat, with a very rare interruption by the casino host. In fact, exactly who does take part in these realtime chats?

Perhaps I am weird, but in all the time I have been playing online, I have only ever needed to contact CS to ensure no bonuses are ever added to my account. So all comments about wonderful support, great managers, etc, simply pass me by.

:( Huh? Is there some sort of limitation as to what can be discussed on this forum?

The main reason was curiosity as to what people get out of real time chat.

And I also thought it was quite an interesting subject, so there!! :rolleyes:

I am not a particularly 'social ' gambler. I don't like people chatting with me while I'm at a B&M playing, nor do I want to chit chat with strangers in online casino chat. For those that like it, fine. I don't. But I hate things like Facetwit, etc., too.

I also hated live online BJ due to the fact that people were always trying to talk/chat with me while I was trying to play.

When I'm playing, I need what few brain cells I have left to be fully functional and focused. I don't drink, I don't chit chat. I'm busy. :)

I dont like to engage in live chat either but at a B&M casino ,especially at Paigow all the players at the table chat about almost anything. I have met celebrities there and loved talking with them. We also talk a lot whilst playing mahjong as its a form of social activity. Actually, I do much better when I am allowed to chat during live games though not online chat.

I love the chat feature at 3Dice. Talk is generally superficial, and that's probably how it should be. There's a lot of humour usually, and we can all use a laugh.

I've gotten to "know" a few people in more depth through private messages over there, and I've had the pleasure of meeting up with a few members in real life as well. I hope to meet a few more in the future.

I was quite ill and housebound when I began gambling online, and that human interaction kept me sane I think. Well, not entirely, but you can't blame 3Dice for that, lol. There's been a lot of people lend me an ear when I needed one, and for that I am truly grateful.

I will sometimes not chat, and particularly if I am playing in real. I usually do if I am in tourney mode though. I am guilty of walking away from the computer to tend to real life and leaving chat open, so if you ever speak to me and I don't answer, I'm AWOL, not deliberately rude.

If anyone is a little shy, please feel free to message me over there, I'll do my best to help if you need it.

:lolup: Yeah me too. :p
I don't use the chat much at 3Dice, occasionally I'll PM Anna or Ellen and once in a blue moon I'll pop in when I'm playing a tourney and yak a bit - depends on who's there and what they're talking about. I never use it when I'm playing for real though.

I close live chat as soon as it pops up at 3Dice in the free tourneys - it's irritating to look at even if it's off to the side. Not that I'm antisocial but when I want to play, that's all I want to do.

Plus I got burned out on chatting years ago. Hell, I hate to live chat with casinos (except 3Dice support) because it's usually so slow that you have to wonder if the person on the other end slipped into a coma.

I'm with All4Greed.

I don't want to chat with anybody but the voices in my head when I am playing. They are good company and don't aggravate me.

I don't like people visiting with me while I am playing B&M slots either. I want to lose my money in peace and quiet.

I'm not a chatty online person but I DO miss the now defunct UB playing BJ and I miss so many of the players there. We had so much fun in chat. I was thinking about that today!

I love the chat room at 3dice, have met some great people through talking. It is surprising how much you can have in common. Carly, I am so sorry that chat went that way for you. I remember when I first started chat I felt odd like the odd girl out however I am a talker so I just started talking. I am butterflyboogie there too so if you see me just hollar at me. If for some reason I don't answer its because I am paying a lot of attention to the game. I keep chat open and drop in and out so I'll try and see you. Iluvslots is usually in the chat room and she is super friendly, as jasmine, chocmartin and a while lot of others are. Just start talking...we all like to talk :D Hope to see you soon!
