Celeb Poker Review
Most aspects of our Celeb Poker review (except promotions) will also be applicable to other members of the Boss Poker Network. Since their site shares players with other sites in the network, their player base is growing very quickly. Celeb Poker's claim to fame (besides having soft competition) is that you can play against quite a few celebrities including actors, sports stars, and other famous personalities (and even rogue trader Nick Leeson, hmmmm. . .). If you are from the US, you will probably only notice some of the names (like Lou Diamond Phillips), but they do have a good range of celebs from many different countries (mostly Europe) and backgrounds (TV, film, radio, and various sports).

Celeb Poker Ratings
Overall Celeb Poker ratings based on our poker review are (out of 10):
Celeb Poker Games and Table Limits
At the moment, Celeb Poker's game are limited to Texas Hold'em, Seven Card Stud, and Five Card Draw. However, they have a decent range of low and high stakes table limits, ranging from $0.05/$0.10 to $50/$100. They also have a casino with more games like Blackjack, Roulette, Stud Poker, Sic Bo, Baccarat, and Slot Machines.
Celeb Poker Tournaments
Celeb Poker has decent tournament traffic. They have satellite tournaments where you can win a seat to the WSOP being held at The Binions Horseshoe in Las Vegas, and weekly freerolls ($50, $100, and $500). They also now have Heads-Up Tournaments.
Review of Boss Poker Network Software
Celeb Poker has very basic graphics, but the software works well and it is pretty straightforward. Installation and registration are fast and easy. Unlike at some online poker rooms, it is VERY easy to see when a player has folded (you'll see what I mean). You can see the % of players viewing the flop, the number of hands per hour, and the average pot in the lobby and when at the table. Their software now supports multi-table play - up to FIVE tables at the same time! Another new addition is that they have multi-language and multi-currency tables, which should lead to more international competition.
CelebPoker Bonus and Promotions
CelebPoker's bonuses seem to change every couple of weeks, so they are hard to keep track of. The bonuses are usually released rather slowly (you earn $5 of the bonus for every $25 of rake generated), but they are decent nonetheless. They do offer the chance to win a seat at the WSOP and E-WSOP with packages worth up to $12,500, and the chance to play their celebrities live at the Palm Beach CelebPoker Classic. See the CelebPoker site for full details.
