About Rakeback Providers

Rakeback providers have been around for quite some time now. The first ones opened up in 2003-2004 when there were enough Poker rooms out there to dial up the competition over who would attract the most poker players. In essence, a rakeback provider brings in new players to poker rooms in exchange for part of the rake that the room collects from this player. Then, to incite new players to sign up through them, rakeback providers offer a large part of this rake back to the player and keeps a small part of it as a commission. The reason they are so popular is because it is somewhat of a wining situation for all parties involved. The poker room gets more players, the rakeback provider makes a commission from the rake the player is paying when he plays in the poker room and the player gets part of the rake he is paying back in his pocket.

This is why no poker online player today should be playing without a rakeback deal. Rakebacks allow online poker players to get back part of their money regardless of if they win or lose and for frequent players, the amount of rakebacks he gets can represent large sums.

These days, Rakeback sites are popping up left and right because larger rakeback sites have found a way to allow members to easily create their own rakeback site. RakeTheRake, which has now emerged as the largest rakeback provider with over 40 poker rooms in which they offer special promotions has such a program called “Rakeback Partners”. They have pre-made websites which offer the same exact deals they offer and all someone has to do is register a domain name and sign-up with their program. There is no maintenance or support required because RakeTheRake takes care of all that on behalf of the affiliate member. You can check out RakebackChoices.com which is an example of such a website but you may have never guessed that.

This phenomenon has made our lives a little more difficult. There are too many Rakeback sites out there now to review and compare because 95% of them are affiliated to one of the larger ones. This is why we have done all the grunt work for you and the table above represents all different and independant rakeback providers that we compare and contrast to help you get the most of your rake back. Please do not hesitate to click in the “more details” column for a more in-depth analysis and breakdown of which poker rooms are covered by which providers. However, if you want the “short” answer to which one will most likely be the best for you and will likely cover most if not all the rooms you play in so that you can have all your rakeback in one place, we recommend you go with RakeTheRake.

Good luck!
