Tournament rake

In PartyPoker tournaments, the commission (fee) is highly dependent on the buy-in. The size of the tournament rake ranges from 0% to 25%.

For instance:

  • In popular tournaments for $215, rake is usually $15, which is about 7%. Less often – $9 (4.4%).
  • In tournaments for $109 – either $5 (5%) or $9 (9%).
  • In tournaments for $2.20, $5.5, $22, $33, rake is $0.20, $0.50, $2 and $3 respectively, i.e. 10%.

The tournament fee for each event is shown in the buy-in window. It is displayed through a plus sign. So if the buy-in is indicated as $200 + $15, this means that $200 goes into the game and becomes part of the prize pool, and $15 is a commission fee.

This applies to both multi-table tournaments (MTT) and sit-and-go games (Sit&Go).

Rake in Spins at PartyPoker

In PartyPoker Spins rake depends on the buy-in and ranges from 4% to 8%:

  • In Spins for $0.25, $1, $3, $5, rake is 8%.
  • In Spins for $10, $20 rake is 6%.
  • In Spins for $50 and $100 – 5%, and in the most expensive Party spins for $250 – 4%.

PartyPoker rakeback

At PartyPoker, rakeback is calculated according to the partypoker Cashback loyalty program. According to this system, players receive from 20% to 40% rakeback in the poker room.

PartyPoker Cashback is a weekly reward program in which players earn 1 point for every dollar of rake generated by them and depending on the number of points accumulated during the week, players receive a cashback bonus.

How to get rakeback at PartyPoker? Step-by-step instruction.

Step 1. First of all, you need to register at the poker room and make a deposit. Only after that you will become a member of the Cashback reward program and will be able to start earning points and receive cashback.

Step 2. Register in the "Rewards" section. At the same time, keep in mind that cashback is credited for a week, which lasts from 00:01 Monday to 23:59 Sunday CET.

You can check the current status of the points earned and the cashback received in the "Promotions" – "Cashback" tab in the lobby of the poker room.

Step 3. Play real money games so that the rake you generated will bring you the points you need.

The amount of rake you earned is proportional to the percentage that you contributed to the bank. In this case, you must receive cards, invest money in the pot and generate at least $0.01 rake in the hand.

Step 4. Accumulate at least 25 points to start getting PartyPoker cashback. The more points you earn, the higher the percentage and amount of rakeback you will receive.

💸 How is rake charged? Can I not pay rake?

The rake in the poker room is automatically charged, you do not need to do anything extra for this. And since rake is a mandatory poker room commission, players cannot avoid paying it. Instead, some rooms (including PartyPoker) offer active players a refund of part of the rake in the form of a cashback.

🎰 Can I get cashback at PartyPoker for playing in a casino or making bets?

Not. Rakeback is credited only for playing real money poker.

🕝 What if I sign up for a cashback program in the middle of the week?

Week of partypoker Cashback is not considered from the moment you register in the program, but according to the calendar from the first minute of Monday to the last minute of Sunday CET. However, you can register in the middle of the week and earn points.

📊 What if the points balance I have accumulated is between levels?

In this case, you will receive a cashback of the last achieved level, and the remaining points will be reset. For example, if you accumulate 315 points, then you will receive $75 for 300 points. And the remaining 15 points will simply be written off.
