What is rakeback? Rakeback explained
Rakeback is where a poker player gets paid for playing at an online poker room. The poker website returns some of the ‘rake’ that the player has contributed. For instance Intertops will give 36% of the rake a player contributes back to that person.
‘Rake’ is what the poker site takes from each real-money, cash (also known as ring game) pot. Poker tournament fees are also ‘rake’.
In cash games the rake is usually around five percent of the money in the pot with a maximum rake taken by the house of perhaps three dollars per pot. When you, as a player, get involved in that hand then a portion of that rake (say a quarter of it if four players are involved in the hand) is effectively contributed by you. It may not sound a lot but actually if you play regularly your contribution will mount to a sizeable sum over the course of a month.
If you are the sort of player that plays more than one table at a time imagine the money you can save by being refunded 36% of the rake. It really is a no-brainer for all regular USA players.
