Customer Help and Site Support
Although Pacific Poker proves itself to be a reliable room to play poker at, there may be some queries that customers may have. Pacific Poker’s main site actually provides very little in the way of player help or support. For customers who are having any problems they will most likely have to refer to 888.com’s site where they will more than likely find their answer. There is no live chat available, this is disappointing as many sites are now employing this mode of customer help as it is proving more and more popular with customers. Phone numbers and e-mail support guidance are both available through the 888 site.
