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).

‘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.
