Get Started

Using the Sky Poker Lobby

In the Lobby you will find a variety of game types - Cash Games, Sit & Gos and Tournaments available in No Limit Hold'em, Omaha and Omaha Hi-Lo. You can start to hone your poker skills at our Free Poker tables (found in the Cash Games section), then, when you are ready, you can try your hand at a real money game.

When you have found a table that takes your fancy, just double-click to open it. Double-clicking a table in the cash game lobby will take you straight to the tables, while double-clicking a Sit & Go or Tournament table will send you to that tournament's lobby where you can review the structure, see who else has registered and of course register.

On your first visit to any of our tables you will be prompted to select a unique poker alias - it will only take a second and this will be the name by which you will be known in our poker community.

Please note Sky Poker reserves the right to change any aliases that are deemed to be inappropriate. Our Customer Care Team will contact you if any changes are made.


Choosing an Avatar


You will then be asked to select an avatar. You can update your avatar whenever you like by either accessing your preferences within 'My Account' or, if you are seated at a table: just click the 'Options' tab and 'Change Avatar'. 

The Sky Poker Lobby is your first call when looking for a poker game. It contains a list of all the active cash games, the current and up-coming tournaments as well as Sit & Gos which are are close to kicking off. The Lobby enables you to select and choose what you want to see in order to find your preferred game.
