    Referral commission on net rake

    Hi all, firstly great site and excellent customer service. So glad I signed up my new accounts through you!

    I was so pleased that I referred a friend and this is where I have a question. Apologies if I'm not understanding this well.

    Referral 4% commission is based on net rake of the referred player. So far so good.

    It appears net rake (for this particular poker room) is calculated by deducting 4% of the player's previous month rakeback.

    So am I right in assuming if I refer a player who rakes the same amount each month, I would only earn 4% on the first month, and nothing thereafter (as net rake is 0)? I don't believe there are any other bonuses/factors affecting the net rake figure.

    Obviously would have loved it if it were based on gross rake (any sites do this?!) but can't have it all I guess!

    Thanks!

    Hey KT

    Yes referrals are almost always based on Net revenue
    There is a room (or 2) where referrals are based on "Rake minus rakeback" but that will mean you still always get paid.

    Let's say 1st month rake is $1000
    and you get 4% or $40

    Then the next month rake is $1000 and rakeback from the previous month is $500

    so you get 4% or $20

    Then the next month rake is $1000 again and rakeback from the previous month is $500 (from the $1000 above)...you get $20 again

    So you always get paid unless in the next month the player only rakes exactly $500, then once the previous month's rakeback is deducted you would get 0. But then the following month you would get paid again.

    Hope that makes sense
    Best wishes

    Ah of course, silly me. You clear off the rolled over negative rakeback with gross rake, not rakeback. Thanks v much!
