The biggest festival in online poker history just arrived on Natural8. From 4 April until 25 April, Natural8 will be hosting the GG Spring Festival (GGSF) with a massive USD 150 Million in guarantees. The last time an event of this magnitude was held was during 2020’s WSOP Winter Online Circuit.
There will be 330 multi-tier tournaments and headliner events, separated into low, medium, and high tiers. This will give players a chance to take part no matter the size of their bankroll. Plenty of satellites will be available, and the tournament will kick off with a USD 1,00,000 Houseparty Freeroll hosted by legendary DJ Deadmau5.
As a leading operator on the GGPoker Network, Natural8 will also be hosting promotions exclusively for their players.
As is customary for all major GGPN tournaments, Natural8 will be offering its players exclusive promotions that will not be found on any other skins.
All the existing freerolls on Natural8 will now offer GGSF tickets in their prize pool. Players can look forward to four different freerolls:
GGSF First Depositors Freeroll
Natural8 Hourly Freerolls
Natural8 GG Spring Festival Freeroll
GGSF N8 VIP Deposit Freeroll
Any Natural8 player who wins the GGSF Main Event-H USD 1,500 NLHE will be rewarded with a LiveX Sponsorship worth USD 50,000.
This package includes:
Natural8 players will receive one entry into a Natural8-exclusive GGSF Flipout, for every entry they make into a GGSF event. They will receive chips for every entry and can multiply their stacks. Re-entries into GGSF events will also count towards the chip stack multiplier. The starting stack for each tier begins at 1,000 chips and players can multiply their chip stacks by participating in more GGSF tournaments within the same tier. Cut-off time for each weekly flipout will be midnight on Fridays.
The flipouts will take place every Saturday (10 April, 17 April, 24 April) at 2 PM (UTC+0). Each of the three tiers will have their own separate flipout.
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 GGPoker.tv, to celebrate the USD 1,00,000 Houseparty Freeroll.
Players can win tickets for this freeroll in USD 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.
For the Houseparty Freeroll itself, 2,000 players will earn GGSF tickets valued at a minimum of USD 25 each. The top four players will win a ticket to the USD 1,500 GGSF Main Event-H.
The legendary DJ will also take part in a special USD 10,000 GG Legends Bounty tournament on April 10. It comes with a price tag of $5 and there will be a special bounty on the one and only ‘deadmau5’ himself.
The USD 1,500 GGSF Main Event-H will certainly be one of the biggest highlights, with the multi-flight flagship tournament offering a massive USD 10 million guarantee. Starting days will commence on 18 April, while Day 2 is scheduled for 25 April. The same also applies for the GGSF Main Event-H: USD 1,500 PLO-NL, which will pay out at least USD 2 Million in prizes.
The other tournament with a USD 10 million guarantee is the special edition of the USD 10,300 Super MILLION$. Featuring a total of five starting days, this weekly high-stakes showdown will see all Day 1 survivors return on 18 April and play down to the money.
18 April will also feature Day 2 of the Headliner-M USD 400 Events, which come in both the NLHE and PLO-NL formats. The Hold’em edition comes with a guarantee of USD 2.5 Million, while the Omaha edition guarantees at least USD 1 Million. Another two USD 10,300 Super MILLION$ events will take place on 4 April and 25 April respectively. Both come with a USD 3 Million guarantee and will play down to a winner the following Tuesday.
High stakes players can look forward to nine editions of the USD 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 USD 25,500 Sunday Five Million with a cool USD 5 Million guaranteed.
Not only the high stakes crushers will be playing for seven-figure prize pools. In total, the entire festival includes 39 tournaments with USD 1 Million or more in prizes up for grabs.

In the first two weeks, USD 3,00,000 in leaderboard prizes will be awarded. The high tier will see a total of USD 150,000 in prizes, while the medium and low tiers will pay out USD 1,00,000 and USD 50,000 respectively. In the third week, leaderboard prizes will be boosted to USD 4,00,000 in total. The high tier will receive USD 2,00,000 in prizes, while the medium and low tiers will pay out USD 125,000 and USD 75,000 respectively to the most successful grinders.
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 favourite events. GGSF tournaments start for as little as USD 5, with the most expensive low tier tournament being the USD 250 Mini High Roller.
Medium tier GGSF tournaments will commence for as little as USD 50, for example in the Forty Stack. Depending on the price range, this can go all the way up to USD 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 USD 1, while step satellites are listed from just USD 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.
