Rake Poker

How much Rake/Fees you pay at each online poker site in 2020

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 operator’s 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 it 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/network.

Sign up at one of our recommended poker rooms and benefit from an exclusive rakeback deal, access to our exclusive promotions/rake races/chases and freeroll tournaments. Signing up with us brings you many benefits over what poker rooms generally offer.

Note: If you already have an old existing and inactive player account, please contact our support team that we can check if we are able to link your existing account with YPD, that you can enjoy our exclusive promotions and Rakeback Deals.

At the cash games texas holdem tables, the poker rooms are all quite similar- they all generally take 5-6% rake. As a result, the right rakeback deal plays an increasingly important role in the selection of the poker room.

Our recommendation goes to here to our two GG Network skins GGPoker or Natural8. A soft player field and 24/7 action at all limits and a very lovely rakeback deal! PartyPoker of course is always an option as well with enough traffic and a nice rakeback deal.

Also, Unibet is a good choice because of the soft player field and the low rake, especially on the micro limits. Unfortunately, the big action is only available on the low and mid-stakes or during peak times if you play at the higher limits.

If you like to play Short Deck Holdem, we definitely would recommend the gg network because you will find there many fish from Asia and every month some nice short deck promotions.

Like the cash games, all sites take 5-6% rake at all Pot Limit Omaha (PLO) tables. Only the CAP may vary from one poker room to the next. Two poker sites stand out clearly because the gg network is the perfect place if you want to play profitable Pot Limit Omaha tables.

That’s why our gg partner sites are the perfect poker rooms 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.

Recommendation MTT

Multi Table Tournamen(MTT)
Site/Network Rake/Fees
Party Network 5% – 10%
GG Network 5% – 8%
iPoker Network 4% – 10%
Unibet 10%
WPN 10%
Chico 10%
Pokerstars 10% – 12.24% (micros)

If you are looking for interesting multi table tournaments with high guaranteed price pools you have to play definitely in the gg network or the PartyPoker network. Both offer every day a lot of different tournaments and many times during the year some special tournament series with many millions guaranteed.

Party/Bwin for example runs their flagship ” Powerfest” and the GG Network as partner of the WSOP runs different WSOP tournament series like the WSOP Circuit Series or the WSOP 2020 Online and many others not connected to the WSOP.

Also at the iPoker network you can find every day some nice MTTs and especially on the weekends, but they offer is not comparable with Party/GG.

Recommendation Sit&Go and Spin&Go tournaments

Sit&Go Spin&Go
Site/Network Rake/Fees Rake/Fees
Party Network 5% – 10% 4% – 8%
GG Network*  No SNGs 7%
iPoker Network 4% – 10% 7%
Unibet  3% – 5% 6,85%
WPN 4% – 10% 6%
Chico 5% – 10% 7,70%
Pokerstars 5% – 10% 5% – 8%

Most rooms have similar offers for Sit and Go games. Depending on the format, buy in, and speed, sites take between 5-10%.We recommend Party/Bwin because you pay here only 5-6% fees at all 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.

If you like to play spins you have many opportunities and find almost everywhere action. Like almost always our gg network partner sites are an good option as well  as our iPoker partner sites. Of course also Party/Bwin has some nice spins traffic but the player field is especially at the higher limits very tough in compared to other sites.

Unibet is also a good choice if you play not higher than 10$ Buy Ins. At all other sites the traffic is very low and only during the peak time or at the lower buy ins you get some action.
