Rake is the fee online poker rooms charge real money games or the added fee for tournaments.
This is because players wager money against each other and not against the house. So rake is effectively the poker rooms’ commission for hosting the games.
The industry standard proportion of rake taken is roughly 5% of pot. The exact amount of rake charged will be found on the rake schedule at each room.
Once you have created a rakeback poker tracker we can keep track of all rake you pay to the poker room then credit your poker account with rakeback payments of your rake.
Rakeback Example: If you receive 35% rakeback, and rake $1000 one month, you will get $350 back.
It doesn’t matter if you win or lose; the more you rake, the more you get back. That is basically what rakeback is about.
Please try the Rakeback Calculator tool to see an estimate of how much rake you are currently paying, and how much you can earn using rakeback and substantially increase your bankroll!
Rakeback: Noun, “A promotional offer in which a percentage of the payments taken by a casino or cardroom are refunded to the player.”
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Rakeback offers are generally only available in online poker rooms as land based casinos find it difficult to track individual rake. The policies and restrictions of these offers vary widely from network to network, so a player wanting to join a rakeback program should always carefully read the details of an offer before signing up.
EXAMPLE: “I prefer to look around for websites that have a low rake to begin with rather than ones that have a rakeback program, but the ideal combination would be a low rake and a rakeback. In any case, I play online a lot so a low rake or a good rakeback offer is much more beneficial to me in the long run than a one-time sign-up bonus.”
