Hollywood poker is one of the fastest growing poker rooms today. For those looking to play with relatively well-known celebrities in a wide variety of games Hollywood Poker is the place to be. Since merging with the OnGame Network Hollywood Poker has picked up traffic, making the site even more enticing to play.
For those looking for a form of rakeback or VIP loyalty program, Hollywood has you covered. Their “Value Back Player Program” is a simple system which rewards those who play a lot of poker on their site. There are six levels: bronze, silver, gold, platinum, titanium, and walk of fame, all of which give players different levels of cash back (rakeback) and other bonuses.
The site uses “Player Points” to move players up and down their VIP ladder. These points are earned by playing real money cash, tournament, and SNGs. To view your Player Points click on the “My Account” page. Players accumulate 5 points for every paid dollar in entry fees (therefore a $20+$2 tournament is worth 10 points) and cash game players are rewarded up to 3 points per raked pot.
The six levels all have different benefits, the higher the level the better the prizes/bonuses:
Those newest to the site will start as a Bronze Medalist and immediately gain access to the clubHOLLYWOODpoker Freeroll Series which runs every weekday. New players are also given access to the Red Carpe weekly Freeroll every Monday night. Also, players have the option to exchange their player points (at an 8-10% rate) for cash once a month (up to $50). Players can also exchange their points for tournament entries or merchandise.
In order to move up the ladder to Silver Medalist players must earn at least 501 points in a month.
After a player earns 501 points in any given month he/she will become a Silver Medalist. These players have all the same benefits of Bronze Medalists but they can redeem their Player Points (at a 10-12% rate) for up to $100. Also, these players will gain access to lucrative No-Load Bonuses and endless Reload Bonuses.
In order to move up to Gold Medalist players must earn at least 1001 points in a month.
After a player earns 1001 or more points in any given month he/she will become a Gold Medalist.

The Gold Medalist is also eligible to take advantage of No-Load Bonuses and endless Reload Bonuses.
