  1. Visual representation of an online poker player.


PokerStars allows its players to choose a customized avatar from any area of pop culture (movies, music, homemade designs) for use in the circular space that represents the player.

On Full Tilt Poker, most players have to choose from a set of pre-drawn avatars (i.e., elephant, penguin, ninja) while each of their Red Pros gets a custom-made avatar that usually represent the player's physical image. Other custom avatars are awarded to winners of various contests.
