What is rake?
Rake is the sum of money that the game provider takes, also known as the “house fee”. These fees vary from site to site (usually from 3-6% of the pot) and can affect your win rate crucially. You should never play a game without the best rakeback deal possible.
What is rakeback?
Rakeback is the sum you get from your generated rake. In example: if you rake 100 dollars in a given game room and have a 50% rakeback deal from us, your Beasts Of Poker account would be credited 50 dollars. Game providers also may give extra rakeback in form of bonuses, rake races and so on. Even if you have a rakeback deal you’re eligible for these, so be sure to check the best bonuses from time to time.
There are few different ways the game provider usually collects rake and the most common are:
Contributed rakeback: Means that you’re entitled for your money’s share in any given pot. For example: you go put 10 dollars in the pot of 20 dollars, the rake is 1 dollar and you have 30% rakeback deal – you get 10/20*1*0.3= 15 cents back.
Dealt rakeback: The biggest difference between contributed and dealt rakeback is that you don’t have to put any money in the pot for you to get the rakeback. The rake is dealt equally between players in any given pot as long as you’ve been dealt cards.
Shared rakeback: Is a mix between the two above. You have to play the hand but everyone gets equal share of the rakeback.
