Changes to the Fish Buffet Rakeback program of the GG Poker (GG) Network on February 26th, 2021
The GGNetwork changes the in-house Fish Buffet Rakeback system, which of course affects all skins of the network, as every skin automatically participates in it. The changes will come into effect for GGPoker and all other skins on the network on February 26th.
New flat cashback “Platinum” ranks! More flat cashback ranks added! Shorter and easier-to-climb Whale ranks added! Whale spins up to 100%! Long, tedious Shark ranks removed!
Good to know:
– Players will receive cashback according to the average cashback % of their current rank.
– Bronze Shark and Black Whale players will have their Fish Points carried over.
– Diamond Shark players will start with 750,000 accumulated Fish Points.
– Whale players will move to one of three new ranks based on their current Fish Points.
– FP breakpoints are 120,000 and 240,000 FP.
Fish Buffet system is renewed to reduce the FPs to earn and the time limit of the top ranks.
– ‘Black’ rank is renamed to ‘Platinum’ rank
– ‘Black Shark’ rank is changed to ‘The Platinum’ rank
– Shark ranks are unified to ‘Platinum Shark’ rank
– Whale ranks are further subdivided into sub-ranks
For Whale & Shark ranks
– FB rank has been changed to a new rank
– Time limit has been reset and will be activated when FPs are newly acquired
– Unspun wheels rewards have been determined, and those rewards plus any uncollected black rewards have been credited to the player balance automatically
The PVI is the decisive factor in the fish buffet
A player can have a PVI between 0 and 2 and this will depend on how much rake is counted and how quickly you collect points for the fish buffet.
On average, players will be rewarded 100 Fish Buffet points for every $1 paid in rake and fees. This value may vary based on a variety of factors, such as but not limited to, game type or tournament played, player behavior at tables, and deposit history.
New Fish Buffet Program Levels and Probabilities
The levels of expected cashback / rakeback have also been slightly adjusted and changed.
Probabilities of the individual fish buffet limits
Extreme adjustments have been made here in terms of levels and cash prizes.
What is new, however are the Platinum Ranks, with which you no longer have to turn the fish buffet wheel. Receive rewards every week at a fixed rate – No more spins and time limits. Platinum ranks are maintained for a year and require certain points for renewal
Every Monday, you will receive a reward for the FPs you have collected as a Platinum Rank for the previous week
You have to click on the “Collect” button within the Platinum tab for your rewards to be credited to your wallet
Uncollected rewards will continue to accumulate each week
You can switch to a Platinum Rank of a lower level/rank.
-All Octopus, Crab, Shrimps can switch to Platinum Fish
-All Whales can switch to Platinum Octopus
You need to clear Platinum Whale to become Platinum Shark, and clear Platinum Shark to become The Platinum.
YourPokerDream’s comment on the adjustments to the Fish Buffet
Difficult to say, because not that much has changed at first glance. The basic idea has remained the same and the PVI continues to play a major role. The idea with the Platinum Ranks is a good thing, and it gives more players to receive a fixed percentage back every week. It’s definitely a lot nicer than before. Players on the lower limits receive now a bit more than before because GG adjusted the Fish Buffet ranks a bit.
Well, you have to generate a good amount of rake in order to the big Black Shark or Diamond Shark Status, nothing has changed here. But it is also justified since this is of course status for absolute frequent players and high rollers.
What GG wants to make clear to us with the changes is that you want to keep the players at the tables and you have to accelerate. You can see that very clearly in the introduction of the Platinum Ranks and of course in the different levels and cash prices.
In short: The changes are acceptable and definitely interesting, especially for regular players but also for casual players. Players can still earn up to 60% Weekly Cashback and even players who can not generate so much rake, have the possibility to reach a Flat Cashback Status.
