Rakeback is one of the most important indicators of any poker room, because the size of the player’s potential profit directly depends on it. Therefore, when looking for a place for a permanent game, you need to choose only those rooms that offer the most favourable conditions for rakeback. In this article, we have collected the TOP 5 rooms with the highest rakeback.
What is rakeback and how it impacts on overall winnings
Rakeback is the return to the player of a part of the commission (called rake) charged by the room from distributions in cash games or from buy-ins in tournaments. Beginners often underestimate the importance of rake and rakeback, considering these sums of money to be insignificant. Of course, at first glance it may seem that 3-5% of the commission from the pot is not that much. However, when you play hundreds and thousands of pots, the amount of rake is quite impressive. The percentage of rakeback may completely depend on whether you will make a profit, or play in the red.
Rakeback can either be fixed or it can depend on various factors, such as the generated rake for a certain period, the number and size of deposits, the overall profitability of the game etc. Some rooms pay an increased percentage of rakeback to players who regularly generate a large rake. Other aimed at amateurs rooms are better at rewarding players who are constantly making deposits and withdrawing money. Rakeback can be presented in the form of cash-back – a way to return the commission in the form of special points that can be exchanged for tournament tickets, cash, goods from the online store of the room etc.
The rakeback percentage can also be influenced by the affiliate through which you registered in the room. Our site is also an affiliate and provides its users with more favourable conditions for playing and receiving rakeback in partner rooms than with direct registration. In addition, our specialists are ready to provide free technical and informational support.
PPPoker is a popular mobile application that brings together weak American and Asian players.

To comply with the law, the game is played here for play money, which are then can be converted into real money. Registration at PPPoker and financial transactions are carried out through special agents. Our site also provides intermediary services and offers favourable conditions for rakeback.
The main advantage of PPPoker is its weak field represented mainly by Americans and Asians.

Basically, they play cash here with the rules of no-limit Hold’em at the tables with limits from $ 20 to $ 200.
The rake size in different PPPoker clubs can vary greatly and can be in the range from 2% to 5%. Caps, depending on the limit, are 0.5 – 3 BB. It should be noted that for Asian rooms this is a very low rake. It is noteworthy that in PPPoker the rakeback is fixed, so you can return the same commission percentage, regardless of the activity of the game. When registering through our website, you will receive a constant rakeback of up to 40%.
Another mobile application with weak American players is PokerBros. This room will be of interest to low and mid stakes cash players. However, during peak times, late night and early morning in Moscow, you can find play at limits up to NL1000 and PLO1000. The room also hosts tournaments with guarantees of several tens of thousands of dollars. In a small number, you can find such disciplines as Chinese poker Pineapple, Hold’em 6+, five-card Omaha.

When playing Chinese poker, you will be charged a 3% commission. The amount of rakeback depends on a specific club, contact our managers for details.

Most games can be found at low limits, however, at the NL100 and NL200 limits, there are also quite a lot of tables – about 10-15 at each. The tables are formed at the highest rates, up to NL5000. Pot-Limit Omaha is not as popular as Hold’em, but at the peak of traffic you can also find an expensive game, up to PLO2500 limits. You can also play fast poker in the room, the choice of tables is small – only 4 limits, but the attendance is high (on average 100-150 players at each limit).
