I’ve performed a bit on GG Poker. I just like the UI and it’s a fairly easy expertise general. I hate the “All-In insurance coverage” because it slows every little thing down however superb, let the home add some methods to cash-in.
Some time again on a special discussion board I requested a query concerning the randomness and reputation of GG Poker. The response I received again was one thing alongside the traces of, “LOL Daniel Negreanu is a part of it no approach it might be a fraud/non-random/and so forth.“. Among the causes I ask once more, moreover Daniel Negreanu outing himself as a roided-up maniac are three issues:
There have been some fairly unhealthy opinions previously and I’ve seen much more not too long ago. Supposedly issues have been cleaned up for the reason that addition of huge names reminiscent of Daniel Negreanu.
GG Poker doesn’t give entry handy historical past. PokerStars, then again, does.
One among my first a number of palms on the positioning I flopped quads. Superb, not complaining there. However there was a “massive hand jackpot” or some shit about the way you win cash you probably have a superb and or one thing. This felt very “slot machine-eqsue” to me and presumably non-random to lure in new clients with a rush of dopamine the identical approach slot machines do (or any cellphone app a la Sweet Crush, and so forth., IDK by no means performed). I notice that is fully anecdotal, simply flagging this as much as see if different gamers have seen one thing comparable.
Additionally, this glowing (most likely not impartial) evaluate, in so many phrases, says “Extra rake is healthier”:
GGPoker is worth it not solely due to the quantity of promotions, but additionally since you play towards reasonably weak gamers. In return, the rake at GGPoker is slightly greater than at most opponents.
For individuals who do not keep in mind the story of Chris Ferguson et. al:
In 2004, Ferguson was one of many founders of the web poker website Full Tilt Poker. On September 20, 2011, the USA Division of Justice amended an present civil criticism towards Full Tilt Poker, a web-based poker firm of which Chris Ferguson was a director. The amended criticism alleged that Chris Ferguson, Howard Lederer, and Rafe Furst “lined their very own pockets with funds picked from the pockets of their most loyal clients whereas blithely mendacity to each gamers and the general public alike concerning the security and safety of the cash deposited.” A lawyer for Ferguson denied the allegations, suggesting that the problems could have been the results of mismanagement not malice. The case was dismissed February 19, 2013 yielding insofar that cash be paid out by Ferguson and limitations positioned on his web site and the legality of on-line poker.
