Celeb Poker, as its name suggests, makes you feel like a real celebrity when you’re at the table, which says quite a bit about the app.

Sharing your achievements on Facebook and Twitter are integrated, and the game gives you bonuses when you bring your friends in to join.  Celeb Poker also lets you create avatars for yourself, which can be further customized at any point. You have the opton of liking a particular player, add someone as a friend, and even gifting something to a friend. You can even buy somebody a drink at the poker table. Can’t get more sociable than that now, can it?

Since the game is made up of a real poker community, which comprises of people who love their poker, more often than not you would notice that people actually care about their hands and play a serious game, even though it is only play-money at stake This makes the game a lot more interesting as well as challenging, considering its real players out there that you are pitted against.

Every time you win a game you are awarded with a bunch of titles and achievements which you can share with you friends. The realism in the app is evidence that the developers have really put their heart and soul into designing every small part of the app to perfection. Even the card shuffle seems so realistic that for a moment you think you are actually sitting at a real poker table. The game offers special deals on chips and there are several competitions that you can participate in. And yes, you can also take part in international competitions and pit your poker skills against the best in the world.

And then there is the customization that the game offers. You can customize and select a poker table based on your preferences, as well as create your own unique avatar and profile that other players will know you by.
