Jeffrey | Poker Rakeback

This article is a part of the Poker Rakeback series.

As an online poker player you constantly get different bonus offers and often you sign up for a bonus without really making sure how much rake you have to pay before you clear the bonus. We want you to choose a rakeback deal with a poker bonus included, so you get the best of everything!

Today, almost every poker sites offer deposit bonuses and they usually include a percentage and a certain amount, for example, 100% up to $500. This means, that you have to deposit a certain amount and it will be matched with the same amount, not exceeding $500. Remember, if you deposit $200 you will receive a bonus of $200, and if you deposit $1,000 you will get a maximum bonus of $500. So make you sure deposit the right amount in the first place!

Every bonus has a time limit
The time limit is important if your bonus is paid in a onetime cash out, because you can lose the entire bonus if you do not pass it within the time limit. It is important that you check the requirements for the bonus in order to clear the bonus.

Check the bonus requirement

Sites like Party Poker use the points system based on how much you pay in rake. These points are often used as a bonus requirement; you have to play and collect a special amount of points in order to clear the bonus.

Rakeback or Bonus?

If you want to take full advantage of rakeback and bonuses, make sure you don’t choose one over the other. Find a way to make bonuses and rakeback work together. There are poker rooms out there that will not deduct your bonuses from your monthly gross revenue (the total amount you pay in rake), hence you will receive both rakeback and poker bonus. Signing up for a rakeback plan is a must for every online poker player. Signing for a rakeback deal that gives you credit for tourney fees and leaves your bonus money out of your rakeback calculations is the best way to go.

Poker VIP Programs gives you an easy overview of the poker rakeback deals out there.

I’m not sure I understand the part about poker rooms deducting your bonus from your monthly gross revenue. What exactly do you mean? Can you elaborate on this?
