Company Background

The world of poker has a glamorous and exciting history. There have been hundreds of celebrities associated with the game, and today that has expanded into the online world of poker play. Hollywood Poker is an online poker site that adds the chance of playing against a famous celebrity to the additional thrill of play.

Started by Vince Van Patten, a celebrity poker host himself, the site strives to be technologically advanced, offer huge regular tournament pools and prizes, and the online poker industry’s best customer service, gaming experiences and community interaction.

Software Usability

Hollywood Poker offers the “slow” version and the download version of their gaming software. Both versions provide identical features and options, it is the download version however that operates a bit more quickly, and has the availability of saving any settings.

Like most other online poker programs, Hollywood Poker opens with a “lobby” screen that allows the player to see all of the current active games, or “tables” and the kinds of poker being played. It also allows players to decide if they will be playing for “real” money or in practice sessions.

The Hollywood Poker software has a great “Quick Seat” function that places a player at the most appropriate table for their personal options and preferences. From that point on the game is played with the extremely easy to use controls across a well designed and active poker game screen.

New Player Bonuses

Hollywood Poker grants bonuses on first deposits. These are determined by a pre-selected experience level that the player designates to him or herself. They range from a “green horn” bonus all the way up to a “professional player” bonus. Generally, the player has a set amount of time to “release” the bonus they have signed up for.

The site also makes world class tournaments available to all enrolled members, and updates the registration opportunities regularly. Game Varieties

The Hollywood Poker site makes the most popular styles of poker available for their members to play. Currently they offer:

Players can take advantage of complete tutorial information on every variety of poker available, including bluffing, betting and style of play tactics and suggestions.

One of the really excellent features of the site is the animated tutorial option that is a brief film illustrating the accurate methods and tactics for each style of poker play.
