Rake Poker

How much Rake/Fees you pay at each online poker site in 2018

As you may know, all online poker sites earn their money by rake/fees. At each tournament or cash game pot, a small percentage of the pot is withheld from the poker room, which can also be understood as a service fee to use the operators platform.

Even though the rake you pay in the short term looks very little, in the long run it adds up, and that’s exactly why the poker sites do not care who wins, because their winnings are made by the rake and don’t depend on which player wins or loses.

As a normal hobby player you can ignore the aspect of rake/fees completely, but if you play more regularly then you should definitely address this topic as may save you a large sum in the long run. With the help of YourPokerDream, you can receive very exclusive rakeback deals when you create a new player account with one of our partners through our sign up links.

This article is not about rakeback but about how much rake and tournament fees you pay at each poker site/ntework.

Multi Table Tournaments

PartyPoker/Bwin: 4-5% of the Buy In *Best Multi Table Schedule of all sites.
BreakoutPoker(GGPoker): 5% of the Buy In
iPoker Network: 7-10% of the Buy In
Microgaming(MPN): 10% of the Buy In
Winning Poker Network(WPN): 10% of the Buy In

Our recommendation here is clearly PartyPoker and BreakoutPoker. First, the tournament fees are much smaller than at all other poker sites and they offer some fantastic rakeback deals.

Cash Game No Limit Holdem

At cash games, the poker rooms are all quite similar- they all generally take 5% rake. As a result,  the right rakeback deal plays an increasingly important role in the selection of the poker room.

Our top two cash choices are also PartyPoker and BreakoutPoker. PokerKing from the Winning Poker WPN Network and Nordicbet, Betsafe and Betsson from the Microgaming (MPN) Network are also offer interesting advantages. An important factor here is what limits you play. The number of players in the Microgaming network is limited and real big action is only available on the low and mid-stakes or during peak times if you play at the higher limits. At all other sites you have almost 24/7 traffic.

Pot Limit Omaha Cash Game

Like the cash games, all sites take 5% rake at all Pot Limit Omaha (PLO) tables. Only the CAP may varies from on poker room to the next. One poker site stands out clearly- Breakout Poker takes only 3% rake at all Pot Limit Omaha Tables.

That’s why BreakoutPoker is the perfect poker room for PLO players. And not only because of the low rake, they also boast a ]high number of players on all limits, great promotions and a fantastic rakeback deal.

Sit&Go Tournaments

Most rooms have similar offers for Sit and Go games. Depending on the format, buy in, and speed, sites take between 5-10%. BreakoutPoker does not offer Sit & Go tournaments at all and at Micro Gaming Network the number of players at SNG is quite low, so these poker rooms aren’t great choices.

We recommend Party/Bwin and all skins under the iPoker Network. The iPoker network is known to have the strongest traffic when it comes to Sit & Go tournaments. For players from Austria, we clearly recommend Coral Poker.

Spin&Go/Jackpot SNG Tournaments

The spin&go/jackpot tournaments have taken the poker world by storm. No other variant attracts as many hobby players as the Spin & Go tournaments. These tournaments are played in Super Turbo format and have between 5-8% rake.

PartyPoker/Bwin: 6-8%
iPoker network: 7%
Microgaming Network: 6%

The Microgaming network stands out because of the 6% rake. For Micro Grinder who are playing buy ins of $1-5 it is clearly the best choice. It is well trafficked and YourPokerDream can offer an exclusive rakeback deal.

For players who are on the limits $10+, we recommend our partners from the iPoker network or PartyPoker. iPoker is even more profitable in this case as all buy-ins have only 7% rake and the Twister SNG (that’s the name iPoker uses for Spin & Go tournaments) has players 24/7 on all limits and offers bonus Twister Promotions. PartyPoker/Bwin is a great option for higher buy-ins as the rake can drop as low as 6%!
