Rakeback is an old phenomenon that in the beginning was meant to be for the most loyal players in the poker room. In recent time it has become more common and it's no longer necessary that you are playing for big amount of money.

Rakeback means as the word implies that a part of the rake that going to the poker room are returning to the player. In figures can it be around 25 to 50%, but the offers can shift even more. How can it be that the poker rooms giving the player this generous offer? The first part of the answer is that the competition among the poker sites is very hard, and every poker room wants as many players as possible.

Is there no catch in this you may ask? Rakeback online is constructed with partners to the poker room that are connected to the room and offer you rakeback. That means, for example, that you not can get a rakeback in a poker room you already are registered in. You must register via a rakeback partner before you start an account in a poker room. As you maybe understand by now, this is how the rakeback partner gets its own money. Theirs function is to deliver you to a poker room.

The drawback is, however, that the eventual bonus that is given by the poker room to you as a player will be reduced. By that said rakeback isn't a bad thing, but you should look up what you will win in returning rake and what you eventually lose in bonus and after that decide if to try the rakeback or not.
