Hollywood Poker Review
IMPORTANT: Hollywood Poker has stopped accepting players from the United States, therefore U.S. citizens may NOT open a real money account at Hollywood.
Our Hollywood Poker review is very similar to that of PokerRoom.com because both use software from PokerNetwork and share the same player base. The main differences are their promotions, special tournaments, and that Hollywood Poker is backed by actors James Woods and Vince Van Patten. Other celebrities do show up and play on their site - celebrity sightings include Merv Griffin, Scott Baio, Mimi Rogers, Jeff Fahey, French Stewart, Mena Suvari (wow), Willie Garson - but don't expect to play at a table with a celebrity every time you log on. Besides the opportunity to play with the stars, Hollywood Poker has one of the best poker room software, good tournament action, and excellent support.
