Hotkeys are customizable keyboard shortcuts that help you streamline your play. Rather than fumbling with your mouse, you can quickly use programmable keyboard combinations or hotkeys for commonly used actions like folding, checking, calling, betting, raising, arranging tables and more.

How it works

Hotkeys give you the power to assign keyboard shortcuts for common actions. For example, you can use F1 to fold, F2 to check/call, and Control+B to bet/raise. When it’s your turn at the table, simply press the dedicated hotkey or combination on your keyboard. You’ll find this is faster than dragging your mouse cursor and clicking on the desired action, especially when you play at multiple tables. If you’re a fan of multi-tabling, you can even use hotkeys to instantly cascade and tile your tables.

Enabling Hotkeys

You can enable and customize your hotkeys by clicking on the Settings menu. You’ll find the Hotkeys option beneath Playing Tools. To ensure your Hotkeys are active, make sure the Use Hotkey slider is set to on.

Here is the complete list of hotkey-configurable actions:

  1. Fold
  2. Check/Call
  3. Bet/Raise
  4. Blitz Poker: Fold and Stay
  5. Bet Slider Move Left
  6. Bet Slider Move Right
  7. Bet-size Button 1
  8. Bet-size Button 2
  9. Bet-size Button 3
  10. Bet-size Button 4

  14. Sit Out Next Hand
  15. Sit Out Next Blind
  16. View Last Hand History
  17. Show Hotkeys (will open settings and launch the Hotkeys menu)
  18. Leave Table

To customize a Hotkey, find the desired action on the Hotkey list and click on the current Hotkey (or the text that reads Enter Shortcut Key if no Hotkey has been assigned).  Next, enter your Hotkey or Hotkey combination.

After customizing your Hotkeys, press OK or Apply to save any changes you made.

Hotkey considerations

When choosing hotkeys, you should avoid using commonly used keys such as letters or numbers by themselves.  You don’t want to accidentally press one of your hotkeys when you are chatting at the tables and end up placing a huge bet in error. We highly recommend taking advantage of your available function keys or using combinations of letters in conjunction with the control key.

Please note there are some rules for assigning Hotkeys.  Only the alphabet and function keys can be assigned as a hotkey by itself (e.g. A, B, C, Z, F1, F2, F3). Both upper and lower case letters can be assigned as a hotkey. Number keys can be assigned as a hotkey only in combination with Alt, Ctrl, Shift. Hotkeys take up to 2 combination of keystrokes when combined with ctrl, alt, or shift (e.g. Ctrl + A~Z, Ctrl + 1~0, Ctrl + F1~F12). Alt + F4 is not allowed as a hotkey.

Americas Cardroom and WPN are not responsible for the misuse of hotkeys or malfunctioning hardware.
