$150 Million Guaranteed in Huge GG Spring Festival This April

The biggest festival in online poker history is coming right here to Natural8!

From April 4 until April 25, the GGPoker Network will be hosting the GG Spring Festival (GGSF) with an astonishing $150 million in guarantees. What’s more, players on Natural8 will also get access to exclusive promotions that will massively boost their winnings.

This incredible amount will be up for grabs across 330 multi-tier tournaments and headliner events. For the first time, “Low”, “Medium”, and “High” tiers will be introduced for one of the GGPN’s major festivals. This gives players a chance to take part in the action, no matter what their bankroll is.

Plenty of satellites will be available to provide players with the opportunity to earn potentially life-changing prizes for a fraction of the cost. And it all kicks off with an incredible $100,000 Freeroll on April 3!

$100,000 Houseparty Freeroll with Deadmau5

World-famous DJ “deadmau5” will officially kick off the record-setting festival on April 3. The Canadian superstar and producer will spin a set on, to celebrate the $100,000 Houseparty Freeroll.

Players can win tickets for this freeroll in $1 Flipout tournaments, which will run every hour on the hour. The prize pool will be paid to the top 25% of finishers, and the top 50 will receive freeroll tickets. Each of the Flipouts will be limited to a maximum of 500 entries.

Tickets will also be given away on Natural8’s social media channels: Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

For the Houseparty Freeroll itself, 2,000 players will earn GGSF tickets valued at a minimum of $25 each. The top four players will win a ticket to the $1,500 GGSF Main Event-H.

The legendary DJ will also take part in a special $10,000 GG Legends Bounty tournament on April 10. It comes with a price tag of $5 and there will be a special bounty on the one and only “deadmau5” himself.

Millions in Prize Pools Throughout the Festival

The $1,500 GGSF Main Event-H will certainly be one of the biggest highlights, with the multi-flight flagship tournament offering an astonishing $10 million guarantee. An event of this magnitude was last seen during 2020’s WSOP Winter Online Circuit, which managed to cover its huge eight-figure guarantee.

Starting days will commence on April 18, while Day 2 is scheduled for April 25. The same also applies for the GGSF Main Event-H: $1,500 PLO-NL, which will pay out at least $2 million in prizes.

The other tournament with a $10 million guarantee is the special edition of the $10,300 Super MILLION$. Featuring a total of five starting days, this weekly high-stakes showdown will see all Day 1 survivors return on April 18 and play down to the money.

April 18 will also feature Day 2 of the Headliner-M $400 Events, which come in both the NLHE and PLO-NL formats. The Hold’em edition comes with a guarantee of $2.5 million, while the Omaha edition guarantees at least $1 million.

Another two $10,300 Super MILLION$ events will take place on April 4 and April 25 respectively. Both come with a $3 million guarantee and will play down to a winner the following Tuesday.

High stakes players can look forward to nine editions of the $25,500 Super High Roller, which are certain to attract some of the biggest names in the international poker circuit. Each Sunday of the festival will feature a $25,500 Sunday Five Million with a cool $5 million guaranteed.

Not only the high stakes crushers will be playing for seven-figure prize pools. In total, the entire festival includes 39 – yes, thirty nine - tournaments with $1 million or more in prizes up for grabs!

The opening weekend also includes first flights for two bargain events, with a price tag of just $80. You can already find the Opening Act-L tournaments in the Natural8 lobby; just pick your preferred starting day. All those that make it through their respective Day 1s will return for Day 2 on April 11. Both NLHE ($1,000,000 GTD) and PLO-NL ($500,000 GTD) formats are available.

Festival Highlights:

  • Week 1 – Opening Act $80 NLHE ($1M GTD) - April 11

  • Week 1 – Opening Act $80 PLO-NL ($500K GTD) - April 11

Weekly Leaderboards With $1M in Prizes

Each of the three weeks will also feature a leaderboard for each tier. A total of $1 million in prizes will be awarded, and the most successful players in each “Low”, “Medium”, and “High” tier will boost their bankroll further.

In the first two weeks, $300,000 in leaderboard prizes will be awarded. The “High” tier will see a total of $150,000 in prizes, while the “Medium” and “Low” tiers will pay out $100,000 and $50,000 respectively.

In the third week, leaderboard prizes will be boosted to $400,000 in total. The “High” tier will receive $200,000 in prizes, while the “Medium” and “Low” tiers will pay out $125,000 and $75,000 respectively to the most successful grinders.

New “Low” and “Medium” Stakes Events

Thanks to the new three-tier system which has proven to be highly popular, players with a smaller bankroll can also take a shot at glory in their favorite events. GGSF tournaments start for as little as $5, with the most expensive “Low” tier tournament being the $250 Mini High Roller.

“Medium” tier GGSF tournaments will commence for as little as $50, for example in the Forty Stack. Depending on the price range, this can go all the way up to $2,625 in High Roller Events.

For all those attempting to take a shot at buy-ins out of their usual range, there will be plenty of satellites as well. Qualifiers to “Low” tier events will take place for as little as $1, while step satellites are listed from just $3.

Head on over to the GGSF tab in the Natural8 client and set your filters to “GGSF” in order to see your preferred events.

Natural8-Exclusive GGSF Promotions

As is customary for all major GGPN tournaments, Natural8 will be offering its players exclusive promotions for this record-setting GG Spring Festival.

If a Natural8 player wins the GGSF Main Event-H $1,500 NLHE, they will be rewarded with a 12-month LiveX Sponsorship.

This sponsorship will be worth $50,000 in total, as the package includes $15,000 for a trip to Las Vegas ($10,000 for buy-ins + $5,000 for expenses) and $35,000 for live event sponsorships over 12 months. The winner will also represent Natural8 as a LiveX Crew member!

3) Natural8 GGSF Flipouts (worth $50,000)

Tournament grinders on Natural8 will also have a chance to win an extra $50,000 in prizes. For every entry a player makes into a GGSF event, they will receive one entry into a Natural8-exclusive GGSF Flipout.

These flipouts will take place every Saturday at 2pm (UTC+0) and each of the three tiers will have their own separate Flipout.

  • “High” Tier: $10,000 Flipout
  • “Medium” Tier: $5,000 Flipout
  • “Low” Tier: $2,000 Flipout

Players will receive chips for each entry they gain and can multiply their stacks. Re-entries into GGSF events will also count towards the chip stack multiplier. The starting stack for each tier is different, and the cut-off time for each weekly flipout will be midnight on Fridays. This promotion will run for three weeks and take place on April 10, 17 and 24.

The first satellites for the record-setting GGSF are already underway! Don’t miss out on $150 million in prize pools up for grabs over the next three weeks.
