What attracts poker players to GG Poker network poker rooms?
To begin, we'll mention some general aspects of GG Poker network that allowed it to reach its current position and the title of one of the largest poker networks in the world:
- High traffic in several cash games formats and an excellent tournament grid;
- Regular and monthly promotions providing good bonuses and focused on all kind of players (amateurs and regs);
- Balanced lineups at the tables.
Of course, each of these points compliments itself; for example, for having a large number of games, the network received a lot of rake, and that allows to roll out several promotions with good money added, thanks to which the poker ecology is maintained.
This ecosystem is crucial to attracting new players, and as long as the promotions remain aimed at all players, the grow indicators should be positive.
Another key success criterion of GGNetwork has been a localized and aggressive marketing policy, focusing the skins on working with players from certain regions:
- Asian skins - Natural8, GGpoker;
- Western European skins - Bestpoker, BetKings Poker;
- Eastern European Skins - PokerOK.
Note: some GGNetwork skins have been granted with licenses for restricted markets such as the British, Swedish, Estonian, Irish, and Latvian.

GG Poker network skins rakeback comparison
Worldpokerdeals offers exclusive rakeback deals in all the leading poker rooms of GGNetwork. Each has different features (GG Poker network uses its own rake structure called PVI, which is short diversifies how rake is accounted):
- PokerOK — is the most transparent rakeback system. During the month, players receive the Fish Buffet rewards plus some in-house promotions like first deposit bonus, tickets, etc. If at the end of the month the sum of these payments is less than 50% of PVI rake, then the player will receive from us what is missing to achieve it. If the VIP program of the room awarded more than 50%, the player keeps the actual payment;
- Bestpoker —exactly like PokerOK;
- Natural8 — our players will receive an additional payment of 25% PVI rake minus all funds received through Fish Buffet and other promotions;
- GGPoker — our players get a 30% PVI rakeback minus all promotions received by the room (Fish Buffet, etc.)
- BetKings Poker — each month our players receive 20% PVI rakeback minus all the site's promotions.
In short, all poker rooms use the same scheme, except PokerOK and Bestpoker.
Why do we consider PokeOK as the best rakeback deal in GG Poker network?
Fish Buffet prizes are released at random, but according to players experience, on average it represents about 20%-30% PVI rakeback. For example, if you rake $1,000 during the month, Fish Buffet will reward you with approximately $250. And from $750, you will get another 20% to 30%, depending on the skin ($150 at BetKings Poker and $225 at GGPoker).
As a result, considering a 25% rakeback from Fish Buffet:
- BetKings Poker - 40%;
- Natural8 - 43.8%;
- GGpoker - 47.5%.
Of course, this is average numbers as it cannot be said for sure how much rakeback would Fish Buffet give, it could be more or less each month. In PokerOK you are protected with a fixed payment each month; therefore, if Fish Buffest gives you only 10% rakeback, this won't reduce the total amount of money you receive in return.
In short, each month you'll receive 50% monthly rakeback no matter what happens in the room, and even some months you can get more than 50% thanks to a good luck stretch, and that's why PokerOK is the best rakeback deal in GG Poker network.
It's worth noting that these calculations apply only for regular cash games tables and All-in or Fold. If you play fast poker (Rush&Cash), you'll also get an amazing rakeback deal, but the percentages are different.
Rush&Cash has its own VIP program — Cash Drops. The player pays 1/6 of rake in ante from each hand. Of this, 65% goes to Cash Dops prize pool, which is randomly awarded at the tables. Fast poker players in GGNetwork received a rakeback deal from us based on the 35% missing from Cash Drops payments. In total the rakeback is between 30%-35%.
First deposit bonus comparison for GG Poker network skins
In two poker rooms — PokerOK and BetKings Poker, the FDB is called welcome bonus, it is activated in the client, has a fixed size, and does not depend on the amount of the first deposit.
|Skin||Bonus amount||Payout||Wagering time|
|PokerOK||fixed to $1,000||$5||180 days|
|Bestpoker||100% up to $ 2,000||$1||90 days|
|Natural8||100% up to $1,688||$10||NA|
|GGpoker||200% up to $1,000||$10||90 days|
|BetKings Poker||fixed to $1,000||$5||180 days|
Also, at all rooms except Natural8, players receive a bonus payment each time they make ten times the amount in rake, which in short means 10% rakeback. Natural8 is more flexible and to get a payment is only needed 5X rake (20% rakeback), which in the absence of a wagering time makes this first deposit bonus the best in the network.
