Hollywood Poker's Rake (6):
Hollywood Poker's rake is on par with the other poker sites. Hollywood Poker will only rake when there is a flop, and at most $0.20 in the low limit games and $3 in the high limit games.
HollywoodPoker's software has its pros and cons. It allows players to play without downloading their software. You can play a light version of it, which is pretty similar to the one offered by the download software. The only bad thing is that it is a little slow and laggy at times. When testing the download version, we found that if you tried to sit in on table without enough money, it would kick you right out without telling you why.
Each table offers the same character graphics for each seat. Not surprising, the last seat taken is usually the one with the granny graphic (see screenshots below). The game table offers a chance for players on the table to vote off a player from the table. Right clicking on a player will allow you to easily mark the players with a little symbol next to their name.
