Rake

As compensation for hosting online Poker games, we take what’s known as ‘rake’ from each pot. We have a “no flop, no drop” policy. The rake is defined in the following chart:

The house charges a commission or “rake” as a percentage of the total pot won at the end of each hand. The “rake” is calculated based on the number of players in the hand, and the size of the pot. The commission (rake) is 5% and capped at a maximum of $3.
