Robbie Williams Poker will be a play money site that actively discourages real-money gambling

Robbie Williams has announced he is to launch his own poker website.

The Take That star, 37, plans to make RobbieWilliamsPoker.com live later this year.

The news immediately sparked some controversy, with some MPs claiming a 'former drug addict' should know better.

Lib Dem MP Tessa Munt said: "I’m outraged by this. It directly targets his fans, including children.

"The money he makes should go to addiction charities.”

She went on: "If he wanted to be generous with his time and merchandise surely, with all his enormous wealth, he could visit his fans in his home town and sign posters for them?"

But the site itself appears to actively discourage gambling.

A beta version states: "Our online poker room is the place where poker players and Robbie Williams fans play each other to score great prizes and create the craziest avatars!

"So get your poker face on for free online poker tournaments and perfect your Holdem Poker skills.

"This is NOT a Gambling Offer. You play in all games with virtual game money with no value."

The play money site, which has more in common with Zynga than PokerStars, won't even require a download - Hold'em fans can just play on their browsers.
