Hollywood Poker is a very popular poker room endorsed by many big name celebrities – including James Woods, who can be spotted at the tables frequently. It is ‘where the stars come to play’. They use the celebrity angle to endorse the site so it can make it popular with women. Sexist I know but James Woods is a draw.
There is a good sign up bonus which is quite easy to clear. There are lots of unusual promotions. Top Set and Quad Aces payouts on Wednesdays, AAAA-JJJJ with one pocket card: pays out 25x the big blind. The weekly Celebrity Classic Bounty Tournament is always a favorite with a bounty on the heads of all the celebrities you knock out. (Although sometimes the word celebrity is a stretch)
The variations offered at Hollywood Poker include Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven-Card Stud, Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo and Five-Card Draw. All variations and limits are represented. You can also play casino games if you fancy a flutter. The competition is relatively soft at the lower limits.
Hollywood Poker uses the OnGame network platform and draws its traffic from the network’s shared player base. The Hollywood Poker software has a unique design and good functionality and there is both a download version and a Java client; the downloaded version is always better, but the Java client allows you to play away from home. It is also a good choice for Mac users, who can play the Java version without any special installs.
