Here’s how it works:
Celebrity World offers all your favorite casino games and entertainment that you would find in Las Vegas, here are just a few to start: Poker, Video Poker, Slots, Sports Betting, Bingo, Fringo, Solitaire. And social areas and venues such as restaurants, night clubs to meet people, retail stores for shopping, private partiesand even romantic encounters can be possible in CelebrityWorld.com
Blackjack — Black Tie Blackjack tables, Hula style Blackjack tables, or even a skill-game version called pixie panic. All tables are multiplayer but if you prefer you can choose to play heads-up with the dealer.
Poker — Our poker room host is the WSOP Main Event Champion Jamie Gold. Players will be able to play a No limit hold’em with a variety of limits. Whether you are new to the game or a seasoned veteran, everyone can learn something new from a Poker Champion. Jamie will be providing free tips and even training sessions to help players know when to hold’em and when to fold’em.
Video Poker — If you enjoy video poker instead of playing against others, we have a variety of video poker games you can play. Even while playing video poker, you can see a list of other players that are playing at the same time. Get to know someone or buy them a drink, if you do, everyone that is playing at the same game gets a drink too!!
Slots — Dozens of slots games to choose from. We have tournaments and regular play. You can pick your limits and chat with you friends that are playing the same game. New games are released all the time and VIP members get exclusive play before the games are opened up to everyone.
Sports Betting — A complete Sportsbook with odds on games from NBA to Premier League Soccer. You can also bet on Pop Culture events when they arise, like the Oscars or the Grammy Music Awards.
Daily Fantasy Sports — The game replicates traditional DFS mechanics including individual tournaments, 50-50 contests and high-low betting options. It has gone live with contests based around the National Basketball Association (NBA), allowing players to select a full team based on a salary cap, winning points based on the players’ performance. Great fun for the experienced basketball fan or it’s a great way to get to learn the game and key players.
5-card Draft — A great multiplayer football draft game where you put together a team based on past season statistics of real players. Another great way to learn the game or test your experience against the best.
Bingo — A fun multi-player game with a virtual dauber. You can play multiple cards at once and see if you can get BINGO before the other competitors.
Fringo — Fringo is a combination of Bingo with Fruit instead of numbers. You are playing against other players for the top prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. This is a very fast and addicting game where many players work their way through the various limits and earn achievement bonuses. There are also special games for each of the major calendar holidays.
Solitaire — The classic version of the game that you play by yourself, but not alone, as other players are always visible on the sidebar. Earn points and get on the leaderboard. There is also a version that has a bit of a spin to it. Try them both and see which one gets you more coins.
Gaming Experience Snap-Shot — When you go to the casino lobby you have your choice of games. A couple things to remember 1) When you have charms, your luck is better and you will win more, so be sure to buy some or go to charm parties. 2) When you are playing a game and a drink or charm just shows up, that means that someone bought drinks or charms for everyone playing that game or at the table. In a friendly game if you buy one drink the whole table gets a round. 3) There is a leaderboard for each game which tracks who has won the most today or for the week. This can be game-wide, or you can just track your friends.
Celebrity World never sleeps… There are parties going on 24/7 and all you have to do is go to the parties tab and it lists them out. You decide what theme you’d like to go to and what types of charms you want to get as gifts for attending. The parties are mini mixers that really kick-off once 25 people are in the room. Enjoy dancing and meeting people while charms are gifted and given out. It takes less than 30 seconds to set-up your own party which shows on the party board. You can invite your friends or just meet new people. Either way, you always get a bonus for being the host.
Club Scene — The biggest attraction in this section is the Fantasy Suites. You get to move up floors in the hotel as you earn more coins through the game. You can throw parties or hang out with friends in your suite. You can also see the Celebrity suites and work your way up to “Celebrity Status.”
Many of the parties are held at a private suite but you can also use the club venues. Poolside parties with music playing or go to the dance club where you can meet new people. There is also a VIP lounge and a Love Hotel for couples. Remember to dress appropriately and swimsuits are required at the pool. Be sure to do a cannonball off the diving board, the sunbathers love it.
Shopping — For men and women the shopping is phenomenal. Most items are only on the shelf for a limited time and then they are gone. Several of the celebrities have some articles from their own clothing line in the shop. Show your love by wearing your favorite celebrity’s gear to intermix with your own style. We will have fashion shows for the ladies and there is a section on everyone’s profile where they can put clothes on a wish list. Many members enjoy getting their friends new outfits that come out or something special for a night out. The store is organized where you can go directly to the pool section or the black tie. There is a special section for VIP members where they will have exclusive clothing that can really make a statement.
