There is no shortage of poker sites to choose from if you're looking to play online. One site is promising to add a touch of extra glamour to its poker room experience and showed it with a spectacular red carpet opening party.

A host of top players and Hollywood celebrities gathered at the Las Vegas Vanity Nightclub to officially toast the launch of

The site is aiming to become the coolest poker room around and showed its party credentials by hosting a spectacular bash that featured a free bar, 30lbs of assorted confectionery plus an impromptu strip from Playboy Playmate Sara Underwood.

It wasn't all Bacchanalian merry making though. Victory also managed to show its charitable side by raising $30,000 for the Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Programe via its “Trash Talk” fundraising No Limit Hold'em tournament. US reality TV star and NAPT Celebrity Invitational finalist Trishelle Cannatella won the event and in the spirit of the occasion donated most of the cash to the charity.

Dan Fleyshman, CEO of VictoryPoker said, “I believe Victory brings the true essence of the game to the player and through our A-list poker team I hope to achieve this. Our Team Victory include celebs, Playmates and UFC Fighters and they will not only be playing on the site regularly, they will be getting involved with a lot of cool mainstream events.”

Antonio Esfandiari added, “Its an amazing feeling to be a part of a project from its inception and to share those experiences with your closest friends is in itself something that cannot be explained. Never in my life have I been so excited for any project until VictoryPoker.”

In addition to "The Magician", Team Victory also features "Rodeo King" turned poker pro Lee Markholt, Dan "Blitz" Bilzerian, High Stakes Poker guest Andrew Robl, young cash games specialist Keith Gipson, "Who's Your Daddy" CEO Dan Fleyshman, WSOP Champion Paul Wasicka, professional backgammon and poker player Sander Lyloff, "The Maven VT" David Chicotsky, Brian Rast, Alec Torelli, and "Chinese Poker Wizard" Danny Wong.
