For poker players the rake is the commission fee taken by the casino where poker is played and usually is 5-10% of the pot in each poker hand taken by the dealer.

Because only players bet, the casino must collect this sum otherwise it won’t earn any revenue from the game. This is a rule respected in all casinos where poker game is played.

Also poker can be played on the internet. In this case there are two types of rake, collected when you subscribe on the site. They are applied depending on the type of poker game.

One type of rake is time collection or table charge. In casino player pays a predetermined fee after every half hour. For online site it could be monthly subscription.

The other type of rake is player pays while entering a poker competition. Generally the rake is much used in online poker game. It’s very simple to play poker on the internet. You don’t have to leave your house. You only need an internet connection.

If you want to feel the sensation of the poker played with other people, to see their reaction you have to go to a casino. There are a lot of sites who provides poker game. One way of attracting people used by the web sites is schemes as rake back.

Another advantage for players and also for web sites is that poker rooms pay affiliates to get them members. So many of players become 'rake back affiliates'.

They only have to give incentives to others players to sign up with poker rooms through their sites. The affiliate promises to give back some of the money paid for entrance. This means the player gets 25-35% money back via the affiliate.

The amount of money the player generates, his rake back is the percentage of that accumulated money. For affiliates the commission is between 20-40%. In a casino, players don’t have the option of making money through incentives.

The web sites offer to the players the opportunity to play poker or other games without betting with money. They teach a novice how to play until the player feels that he or she can play with money. And then there's the rake back. The sum depends on the rake contributed.

The player can get the money directly in his or her account, by check or by Bank transfer. In order to increase his earnings a player can play on line for more than one table.
