Rake Back facts - are they worthrepparttar trouble?

Rake Back is a rebate given to poker players. The rake isrepparttar 140369 small table fee charged torepparttar 140370 players for each hand of poker. Rakes add up over time ifrepparttar 140371 player plays frequently and/or for high stakes games.

Online poker rooms, in general, do not offer rake back. They offer sign up bonuses instead. There are a lot of bonuses offered out there but there is only one poker room that sanctions rake back themselves.

So whyrepparttar 140372 buzz on poker forums and elsewhere about rake back offers? These offers for rake back are coming from affiliates that work forrepparttar 140373 poker rooms. Party Poker,repparttar 140374 world's largest online poker room, does not allow their affiliates to offer rake backs. They've started to enforce a long standing no rake back policy that can lead to these affiliates being shut out of their program. Atrepparttar 140375 very least, Party Poker will make it impossible for them to track, and hence pay, rake back torepparttar 140376 players. So if a player is thinking of a good offer that's been made to them for rake back at Party Poker, they might want to think again.

Ifrepparttar 140377 affiliate is caught doing this they will be shut down andrepparttar 140378 rake back payments will stop. The affiliate will still keep getting paid commission onrepparttar 140379 already signed up players though.

There are other risks involving rake backs. They have limits on them. It is really not worthrepparttar 140380 affiliate's time to offer them torepparttar 140381 casual poker player as they are seen as never accumulating enough rake to be profitable, so they will go afterrepparttar 140382 frequent player instead. The limits involverepparttar 140383 player having to contribute so much rake per month before becoming eligible for a certain percentage of it back. Another risk is thatrepparttar 140384 affiliate will getrepparttar 140385 player to sign up then stop paying. Most affiliates get paid commission forrepparttar 140386 life time ofrepparttar 140387 player so if they conveniently decide they will no longer payrepparttar 140388 rake backrepparttar 140389 player has no recourse other than not playing at their favorite poker room.

Is it possible in these deals to get rakeback plusrepparttar 140390 sign up bonuses? The poker rooms that do allow certain affiliates to offer these are not as likely to offerrepparttar 140391 rake back playersrepparttar 140392 generous re-load bonuses. If you don't believe this, when wasrepparttar 140393 last time that you saw even a sign up bonus link that was associated with a rakeback offer? Well, most have never seen one. In 99% ofrepparttar 140394 deals they won't offer both. These rake back affiliates are, in essence, replacingrepparttar 140395 sign up bonus with a rake back deal instead. The just want to sign up players and it does not matter how they get them.
