|With competition fierce as ever between online poker rooms, poker operators are throwing just about everything at gamblers to entice them to play, and more importantly stay, with them. GoldenRivieraPoker.com has announced a ‘rakeback’ promotion that it hopes will do exactly that. |
The new promotion offers GoldenRivieraPoker’s players an impressive 30% of their ‘rake’ back each month.
The ‘rake’ is a small maintenance fee that is taken from each and every pot, and ranges from as little as 1c to $3 – it’s how online poker rooms make their profits. The promotion by GoldenRivieraPoker refers to ‘rakeback’, which is a percentage of the rake that is paid back to players.
Regular poker players – those who play thousands of hands a month – will be refunded a 30% ‘rakeback’ from the hundreds of dollars of rake per month they would generate and otherwise forfeit to the casino.
