Las Vegas, Nevada-World Series of Poker Comes to Hollywood - New Hollywood Motion Picture "Lucky You" Scheduled for Casting and Filming in Hollywood and Las Vegas, Soon
Drew Barrymore and Eric Bana are set to star in "Lucky You" at Warner Bros. Story revolves around struggling singer (Drew Barrymore) who hooks up with professional poker player (Eric Bana) as he collides with his estranged father at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. The casting company for the movie is currently seeking poker players and dealers for the film. Details and application forms are available on the front page of

(PRWEB) February 15, 2005 -- Hollywood movies the likes of "Cincinatti Kid", "Rounders", "Maverick", and even "The Sting" have solidly impacted poker over the years. Now the World Series of Poker, which has always been the "real deal" and the long time pinnacle of poker, makes it's debut in Hollywood! The World "Series" has always been exactly what it's name depicts it to be, that is, a daily series of poker tournaments all month long, leading up to and culminating with the no limit holdem, final, main championship event, the "World Championship" as we know it. The main event has grown in leaps and bounds from a mere 312 players in 1999, needing only 3 days to complete, with a first place prize of a mere 1 million U.S. dollars, now up and skyward bound to a staggering attendance of 2,576 players in 2004, requiring a full week to complete and accompanied by a $5 million dollar first place prize, with even $1.1 million going to a distant 5th place finish. This year in July 2005, over 7,000 players are anticipated to ante up the $10,000 each and compete for an estimated first prize of a whopping $10 million U.S. dollars!

This feeding frenzy has been mainly attributed to the onslaught of online poker players coming on stream at enormous epidemic rates and fueling what appears to be "Poker Mania". Both online qualifiers, Chris Moneymaker (2003) and Greg Raymer (2004) went on to win the title, affirming the logo I noticed printed on some player's baseball cap, who was on my table at the series a couple of years ago... "The World Series of Poker"... "Anyone can win".

"Lucky You" is destined to be a surefire hit at the box office as hoards of eager beaver home town gamblers, who have never even been to "head office"(Las Vegas) anticipate their first inside look at winning the big one!

The casting company for the movie is currently seeking poker players and dealers to star in the film.

I have friends that own a site and another friend that is starting one but I prefer to play at Absolute. You have a wonderful site and the promotions are superb. Thanks again." Larry S

"I'm just your average grandmother that enjoys a good poker game. You have a site that allows me to do that. You are generous people. You make it easy to deposit, easy to withdraw, easy to claim any bonus, and just plain easy!! (That's a compliment). There are a few new sites that came online offered a good bonus, but then made it impossible to claim the bonus. I as well as others got suckered into it. NEVER AGAIN. (They have no players either). I just want to say THANK YOU for making a good fun clean poker site. As a member of the Women's Poker Club, I will tell you that you are fast becoming our favorite site. GOOD WORK EVERYONE!!"


"I enjoy my time on Absolute Poker very much. It is the best poker site I have found. Very easy to use. Great customer service." LADIPENGUIN

Review: Pacific Poker

Emerald green poker tables await you, with little or no additional unnecessary decor to clutter your visual powers of concentration. The tables are levelled on a backdrop of lightly patterned blue plush carpet, and surrounded by ordinary brown leather player seats. There are no simulated players draped "like stiffs" in the seats to distract you from the real business at hand here. There is only YOU and your bankroll........ sweet and simple. Just the way we like it.

The playing cards and poker chips are authentically duplicated and the sound of cards dealing and poker chips moving in and out of the center pot are perfectly generated and like music to your ears. The action is consistently smooth and "steady as she goes" and flows with an ideal rhythm, not too fast and not too slow! That is why we experienced very few outages or disconnects! If and when they do occur, the "all-in" failsafe takes good care of it, and the book-keeping system is totally reliable and perfectly flawless, providing complete back-up.

Speaking of flawless, we are most impressed with Pacific Poker's table change software. It is undoubtably the best we've seen on the net, in any poker room. A player can leave a table, and resume play at a new table, and his bankroll and poker chips follow him immediately, no delay, no fuss, no double clicking, no "where are my chips" and absolutely no waiting. It's just bingo!

The software does not allow players on an existing table, to sign up for another table, until they finish the table they are on, and leave that table. Only then, can they sign up for a waiting list to a new table. The purpose of this, to eliminate players wandering aimlessly from table to table,playing "musical chairs", which causes software glitches, confusion, and mucho delays. All the prone wanderers are virtually eliminated, and it's business as usual for the serious players. What a work of art, could qualify as one of the "Seven Wonders" of the poker world!

New players can do a very simple download of the poker room or play a no download version. They can take advantage of a generous 25% / $100.00 bonus offer, which is up front and right on! Deposits can be made in various, different ways. All are completely protected by a secure state of the art encryption process (RSA Public/Private Key Encryption Technology). Withdrawals are as easy as deposits (and so they should be) and are for the most part free of cost to the player. They are very well documented and referenced, quickly approved, and expedited in a very timely fashion with emphasis on total privacy to the client.

Pacific Poker is a medium size poker room operation, with usually 2 - 4 thousand players online, at any given time. There is non-stop round the clock action... (and lots of it) from "loose cannons", who never seem to run out! Games of Texas Holdem, Omaha and 7/Stud, Omaha Hi/Lo, Stud Hi/Lo range from 5 cents / 10 cents all the way to $20 / $40. Tournaments are multi-player and sit and go. These are recent additions, but growing, growing, growing!

There are constant and continual bonus incentives for the regular Pacific Poker players. Sometimes extra money is deposited to their poker account or bankroll at random, sometimes there are lucky draws for cash, a large screen plasma T.V, etc, etc. Free roll bonus tournaments are held on a frequent basis and are easy money. There are also steady, everyday, anytime bonus comps for every dollar wagered and accounted for. The friendly people at Pacific definitely seem to value their steady players, and leave no stone unturned to accommodate them, reward them, and very much cater to them. They definitely want them pampered and "taken care of", just like they do in Las Vegas. They even made available a VIP/Poker Club Membership!

Pacific Poker is a subsidiary or Cassava Enterprises Ltd, which owns and operates Casino-On-Net, which is one of the oldest and biggest online casinos, operating since 1996, thus being very well established. (a very large backer with "deep pockets") Intersafe Global Europe Ltd. Gibraltar, the E-Cash subsidiary of Pacific Poker, is the provider of all E-Cash and credit card processing to Pacific Poker players.

By the way, it is not unusual to find a new player anywhere for that matter, testing the withdrawal system immediately after opening a new account with any poker room, and rightfully so. They want to verify it and satisfy themselves of it's reliability right away as soon as possible before risking more money or before more money accumulates in their deposit account for winnings. They need to establish that they "will be paid" and in a timely and private fashion, aggravation free.

We have witnessed online bankrolls at Pacific Poker as high as $40,000 (forty thousand dollars) U.S. We are also constantly viewing people maintaining bankrolls of over $10,000 (ten thousand dollars) U.S. consistently, and for prolonged periods of time. That signals us, that these players are not afraid to leave large sums of money on deposit, because obviously they have tested the withdrawal system and found it to be "tried and true".

The Pacific Poker site has a very unique feature called "hand history". Their software has the full capability to recount each poker hand, frame by frame on demand. (motion pictures) This lets you personally review each and every hand you played in full detail, until you're satisfied. Should you find any discrepancy and wish to contact Pacific Poker, their support line is available to you 24/7, every day of the year.

Merit where merit is due, the folks at Pacific Poker have obviously done their homework and made use of their many years of experience with Casino-on-Net and have therefore put together a pretty nice poker room, to follow in the footsteps of a great online casino. It's all you really need. Sweet and simple, trusted and reliable, and you can smoke if you want to! We give it a big "Two Thumbs Up"!
