Software

The software has some nice features including note taking, hand histories and statistics. The room is also available as both Java applet and as standard Windows download. The lite version allows people with slower connections to also play online.

Playability

Takes a little while to adjust when using for the first time but generally intuitive and easy to use. The lobby can feel a bit tricky as you need to click on each table to get the full statistics.

Traffic

Usually plenty of traffic at all limits from tournaments to cash games. Even the lesser known formats such as Omaha and Stud fair well, especially at peak hours.

Support

Response time is very good and of excellent quality. One downside is that you although you can deposit by credit card, you cannot withdrawal directly to your bank account. Cash out time is average.

Summary

Hollywood Poker is endorsed and fronted by poker fanatics and actors James Woods and Vincent Van Pattern who also play regularly at the site. As part of the Ongame network, they share a good sized player pool and offer MTT tournaments and Sit N Go’s for most poker formats.

There is a Celebrity Classic Bounty Tournament held every week which adds a touch of glamour to proceedings and has naturally proved very popular with their online players.
