Hollywood Poker combines the glitz and glamour of Hollywood celebrities with the excitement of poker, and the resulting online poker room is well worth checking out.
You may have seen the television shows of the same name which feature the likes of James Woods and Vince Van Patten playing Texas Hold’em, and this site allows you to actually play such celebrities from the comfort of your own home. Even better, it pays handsome bounties should you be lucky (or skilful) enough to knock a celebrity out of an event.
To play here you will need to sign up for an account and decide whether you want to play in your Java-powered web browser or whether you want to download a dedicated software application. The latter option – which most serious players will prefer – takes just a minute or two, and once you’re up and running you can log in and start playing.
Although Hollywood Poker is most commonly perceived as Texas Hold’em, the site also offers Omaha, 5 Card, and 7 Card games. You can play in cash games, sit and go tournaments or MTT’s and there is a wide range of stakes ($0.05/0.10 to $50/100) so that every possible bankroll size is catered for. Got no bankroll? Then enter one of the daily freeroll tournaments to give yourself a chance of winning cash with no money down. All of these games are easy to find thanks to a very well organised lobby that uses tabs to categorise tables and events.
As you would expect from a poker room with celebrity players and Hollywood in the title, this place is smooth running and looks great too. No matter what kind of game you play, you are represented at a red-baize table by what looks like a 3D character. You can’t amend how these characters look, and they don’t move, but they are an improvement on the bland name tags used at some other sites. The cards are clear and easy on the eyes, and audio effects accompany the action without being overpowering.
With a host of promotional events taking place on a regular basis, you are never going to get bored playing here. And when you start playing with real money, you automatically become a member of Club Hollywood Poker, which enables you to earn points whenever you play. Collect as many points as you can and then redeem them for merchandise, benefits and rewards, including entry into exclusive freeroll tournaments.
We didn’t happen to spot any celebrities when we visited this site to see what it had to offer, but we are sure to head back soon when we hope to have more luck. Even when the A-List players are absent, Hollywood Poker is a great site that is well worth checking out.
