Ongame skin Hollywood Poker abruptly closed today, updating its website to state only that it had stopped offering online poker and players would be migrated to fellow Ongame poker room RedKings.
The Malta-based online poker room provided no additional information for the reason behind its closure.
No advanced notice was given to either players or affiliates; many top-tier affiliates, including 2+2, are still currently promoting the poker room. PokerNews.com pulled the affiliate page earlier today. Their official twitter account was updated as recently as this morning with promotional material.
Hollywood Poker dubbed itself as a “celebrity-filled poker room” with the strapline “where the stars come to play.” Despite its promise, it did not have a roster of pro players or any celebrity endorsements.
Its sister casino, Club Hollywood, is apparently undergoing construction.
