Bonus/player benefits:

Criteria HighStakes GGPoker
Weekly Flat Rakeback Yes No
Deposit Bonus $10,000 $600

After making a qualifying deposit on GGPoker, you will be eligible to get a 100% matched bonus up to $600. It is paid in $5 chunks for every $20 net rake ( based on the PVI rake), 90 days wagering time. For the Rakeback, GGPoker offers a Rakeback program called Fish Buffet. Players can get 100 Fish Buffet Points(FP) for every $1 paid in rake(based on PVI rake). The more FP you get, the higher rank you can get into and get a higher Rakeback(20%~ 60%). However, it’s not Gross Rakeback, and the rake is calculated based on the PVI rake system, which GGPoker does not reveal. Thus, you will never know how much you will receive from it, even in the flat cashback ranks. It’s not transparent.

On HighStakes, users can get a 100% first deposit bonus up to $2000 (Release every 25 dollars) and an $11 ticket after making the first deposit. For the Rakeback, users can get a 27% Weekly Rakeback every Monday. It pays out based on the Gross Rake the users generate so players can calculate the Rakeback by themselves, which is totally transparent.
