Fish Buffet is a rewards program. It’s a dynamic loyalty scheme where you can play your way up the food chain from Plankton to Shark level for greater cash rewards.
How do I participate in Fish Buffet?

- 1. Select ‘My Bonus’ in the GGPoker app.

- 3. Hit ‘Opt In’
And that’s it – you’re good to go and all your play will be tracked going forward.
How does Fish Buffet work?
You’ll earn Fish Buffet Points (FP) for every real-money game you play at GGPoker. Fish Buffet Points are earned at a rate of 1 FP for every $0.01 generated in fees/rake. You’ll always be working towards one of the Fish Buffet levels as you earn FP to move up the ranks and earn more cash.
Are there different levels to each tier of Fish Buffet?
Yes. There are 25 levels in total to unlock across the tiers. Each level has different time and FP requirements. Once you’ve achieved the FP milestone, you’ll get a chance to spin the wheel for that level. For instance, you could have reached Crab status, but it’s better to be a Gold Crab than a Brass Crab, and the rewards keep going up with each higher level.
How does the spinning the wheel fit into this? How does it work?
When you complete the requirements for a Fish Buffet level, you’ll get to spin a wheel which determines your prize for completing that level. The prize you win as a result of spinning the wheel is influenced by a number of factors, including the total reward amounts received in the past. You can see the cash rewards available on the different wheels on the main Fish Buffet page.
Do I have an equal chance of winning each of the prizes list on the wheel?
No, you may not have an equal chance of winning each prize on the wheel; the likelihood of winning each individual prize is influenced by a variety of factors, including the total reward amounts received in the past.
Do I have to spin the wheel when the prompt appears?
No. You can choose to spin the wheel at another time that suits you instead. You can spin the wheel at any time from the ‘My Bonus’ section in the GGPoker app, and you’ll have the option whenever you level up to delay it.
Unopened wheel spins will be automatically opened in 30 days and credited into your account.
What happens if I don’t reach the next level in time?
The amount of time you’ll have to earn the required FP to hit the next level changes depending on the level you’re trying to reach. In Fish Buffet, you move down levels as well as moving up. If you don’t reach the required FP in time, you’ll drop down one level.
Do I lose the value of my points when I don’t complete a level?
Should a player earn Fish Buffet points but fail to accumulate the points required to unlock or maintain a level by the end of any given qualification period, that player will receive 10% of the cash value of the points accumulated towards the level at that time. Any points earned during an unsuccessful qualification period are disregarded for the purposes of calculating any subsequent level changes.
How will I know when I’ve reached the next level?
You’ll be visibly informed with a prompt and you’ll have the option to spin the wheel right there and then.
Will I receive a prompt when my active Fish Buffet Points are close to expiring?
Yes, you will receive a prompt in the poker client when you’re close to being demoted.
If I accumulate no Fish Buffet Points in a certain timeframe, Will I be removed from the promotion?
No, you will be demoted the bottom level of Plankton but you’ll still be part of Fish Buffet, and can start earning FP again any time you play.
