Poker Table Rake

The rake is defined below for each game which we spread. We do not charge rake if the hand ends on the first betting round (before the flop in Hold’em or Omaha, before Fourth Street in Stud variants, or before the Draw in Draw variants).

The HORSE mixed game includes only Limit games in the rotation, and therefore will be raked according to the Fixed Limit structures.

Some mixed games have parts of the game rotation which are Fixed Limit, and other parts which are No Limit and/or Pot Limit. Examples include 8-Game, Round of Each (Hold’em / Omaha), Mixed Hold'em and Mixed Omaha Hi/Lo. Hands played at these tables are raked according to the type of game dealt in that particular hand.

‘Number of players’ in the tables below refers to the players who were dealt into that particular hand, not the number seated at the table.

The tables below also represent the rake for both regular ring game and Zoom tables.

True Percentage Rake

Ring game rake is calculated as a true percentage using the ‘round half to even’ method of rounding.

Non-USD Currency Rake

The caps for non-USD games are subject to quarterly review and may be changed due to fluctuations in the exchange rates.
