I play more freerolls, so 888 is better in this case, but GG has bounty tournaments with a total prize pool of up to $15000, with buy-ins as low as $2.16.

Good afternoon! Definitely GG. One of the best rooms right now with their promotions.

Hi,
until now I play only at pokerstars. But I think I will sign in at one other room. Is anyone playing at GG and 888? What are the favours of both sides? Where are more easy players at the mikro-stakes?
Thanks!
Create accounts on both of these sites. Both 888 and GG are great, reliable sites, and each has its pros and cons. But these are reliable sites where you can quickly build a bankroll, including by playing in our daily freerolls.

Regarding GG Poker, a question for German players. Is there rakeback also for Germans?

Hi,

I play on both rooms. It very much depends on which game formats you are looking for.

Some comments from my side:
  • Classic SnGs are not available on GG. On 888 they are but the rake is higher than on PS.
  • 888 has not the best MTT schedule but I made a few good results there.
  • GG has a great new member program with free tickets and also the honeymoon promotion. You can opt-in during the first week and get 30 tasks, one each day for the next month. If you complete all, you can win up to $300, I think. But it's a little unrealistic but I think the realistic goal is still around 150$. 888 has no real new member program (the bonus is ridiculous.).
  • On GG, you have to pay the German gambling taxes of 3% yourself. It is deducted from every payout.
  • you get a daily freebie at GG and can play some games risk-free.
  • if you decide to sign-up at GG, make sure to do it with the cardschat link, so you can also play the CC freerolls (for all members). Although the timing is pretty inconvenient for Germany. 888 offers better timed freerolls for German players.
I've been told GG is soft but I never made it
deep into a tournament, so far. But I also
played only few games there. 🙃

Some say 888 is also soft in the micros. Indeed my ROI is better there than on PokerStars.

If you have the time and commitment, you could easily sign up at GG, use the new members bonus, play the honeymoon and hopefully raise your BR. (I made €100 out of my €25 deposit just by the promotions.)
Play a few games and see how you like it.

If you don't, take a part or all of that BR to 888. 😉
Great overview, one point to add: gg has additional new joiner promo to honey moon where they match your deposit up to 100€ which is contigent on the rake you pay. Its pretty unrealistic to achieve the whole sum but you can still earn some additional money.

Also there's the daily flip out tournament ggcare or thanksgg for big pots you won. I qualified for it about 6 times in the last month and received 20€ once ;)

for me, 888 is better than years old is also good with its large prize pools at tournaments
