Overview

GGPoker is part of GGNetwork, which was only established in 2014, but has since rapidly become one of the world’s biggest online poker networks. GGPoker offers its games on both a downloadable and instant-play basis for desktop as well as mobile users, with its specialities including the likes of Texas hold’em, pot-limit Omaha and a wide range of tournaments.

Take advantage of GGPoker's promotions

Promotions

Naturally, the exact promos that you will come across at GGPoker are liable to change over time. Nonetheless, you can generally expect to see some or all of the following:

  • A hefty first-deposit bonus

  • 30-day challenges

  • Weekly free-rolls

  • Juicy jackpots

  • Regular missions

  • Highly competitive tournaments

Games

Two of the biggest areas of focus at GGPoker as far as the games are concerned are Texas hold’em and pot-limit Omaha, and it’s not difficult to see why. Both these forms of poker don’t take much time to learn, but do require years of practice to master.

Complementing these evergreen favourites at GGPoker, however, are various other rewarding variants of poker. These include All-In or Fold, which is exclusive to GGPoker and with only eight big blinds, requires you to choose between moving All-In or folding on every hand.

Rush & Cash, meanwhile, is as fast-paced as its name implies, operating much like the site’s standard cash game tables, except that you won’t have to wait for hands to finish after you’ve folded.

Play a variety of poker tournaments at GGPoker

Tournaments

The tournaments that a given poker site offers will always be central to its level of appeal. Sure enough, GGPoker has shown plenty of imagination with its own complement of tournaments, which typically begin with all players having the same number of chips, and conclude when one player – the winner – finally acquires all of the chips in play.

Especially popular are the site’s Daily Guarantees, which enable successful players to scoop winnings of at least $100,000 each day, rising to $200,000 on Sundays.

Bounty Hunters tournaments also run on a daily basis, and as well as playing for your share of the regular prize money, enable you to earn a bounty for each player you take out. Or why not take a look at the site’s Phoenix Rebuy tournaments, which feature a unique double rebuy period in which you can rebuy for 300% of the starting chip stack?

These are just a few of the most intriguing tournaments being showcased at any one time at GGPoker, with other options including:

  • Daily Main Events

  • Blade Tournaments

  • $25K Sunday High Roller

  • Mini-Mega Series

  • Omaholic

  • MBP Tournaments

  • T$ Builder Tournaments

Deposits/Withdrawal options

GGPoker gives you a good range of accepted payment methods from which to take your pick when you wish to add money to your account. These include the ever-ubiquitous MasterCard and Visa credit cards, but also the likes of Skrill, Neteller, Paysafecard, ecoPayz and Neosurf.

The site won’t charge you anything for using these services, although minimum and maximum limits do apply, so we would advise you to note these when you come to deposit.

Payout Policy

You won’t be able to withdraw any funds from your account until you have become ‘KYC verified’. This ‘KYC’ is, of course, a reference to ‘Know Your Customer’, as it’s important for sites like GGPoker to know that you are the person you claim yourself to be.

You can therefore expect to be asked to provide a suitable document, such as a driving licence, utility bill or passport, to verify your identity.

Software & Graphics

Whether you play poker here on an ‘instant play’ basis directly through your web browser or instead by downloading the associated desktop software or smartphone app, you will be presented with a smart-looking and intuitive interface, as well as games themselves that exude sophistication and realism.

If we were tempted to be picky with our criticism, we’d perhaps suggest that the main GGPoker site isn’t exactly the most graphically stunning one we’ve ever seen. However, it’s unlikely that you will care about this more than the games themselves.

Support

You can access an informative database of support resources by clicking the ‘Help’ option from the navigational menu on the main GGPoker site. This part of the site provides a handy education in relation to such things as the table features here, the different tournament types, the rules of Texas hold’em, Omaha and much more.

As for if you need to get in touch with the site team directly, GGPoker gives you various options for this, including a support email address and even a number for WhatsApp.

General info

GGPoker is fairly straightforward to use on both desktop and mobile, as well as being continuously rewarding.

A particular standout feature as far as the latter is concerned is the site’s unusually named loyalty scheme, Fish Buffet, which works on the basis of a ladder system that grants you greater rewards as you climb the ‘food chain’. The various levels of the scheme are given suitably fishy names, starting at Plankton and continuing through to the likes of Shrimp, Goldfish, Octopus... and finally, Shark.

Bottom line

With GGNetwork having only really started to spread its tentacles into the European online poker market in 2017, it’s fair to say that GGPoker has some work to do on the name-recognition side of things. However, the unspectacular-but-functional site, the impressively realistic games, the vast range of tournaments and promos and the option to play via downloadable software or directly within one’s web browser are all factors that will help to make GGPoker deservedly well-known.

Why not sign up today to discover why GGPoker has been frequently claimed to be one of the better places to play poker online?
