Firstly, let us explain what a rake race is in case you are unsure.
A rake race is a competition between poker players to see who can rake the most in a certain amount of time, e.g. a week or month. The players to rake the most will receive a prize depending on their position in the leaderboard. There can also be races with the incentive to rake a certain amount in a given period. In order to find the best race there are 5 factors to consider:
What sort of money/prizes are being offered in total?
How many positions are being paid?
What is the length of the race?
How many other affiliate sites are involved?
What is the percentage return?
Currently on our website, the best race to participate in is our exclusive $15,000 rake race with PartyPoker and Optibet for RTR players only with the top 150 rakes winning a share of the $15,000.
We also offer a $8,000 RakeTheRake only rake race that includes a larger variety of rooms so more of our players have an opportunity to win some money. The race now includes the following rooms: BetKings, Betsafe, Betsson, NordicBet, Intertops, Bwin, GG Poker, Natural 8, Sky Poker, Tiger Gaming, William Hill Poker and Ya Poker. The top 50 players will win a share of the $8,000 prize.
UK players can also get involved in the Betfair €15,000 bi-weekly races, this is a great race as you have two chances in a month to win a share of the money and all you need to do is finish in the top 250 rakers, meaning a large amount of players would win a share of the money. However, you do have to compete against players from other affiliates.
What is a Rake Chase? A rake chase is offered by poker rooms or affiliates that provide rakeback deals for their customers. A rake race pits you against yourself rather than other players, the idea is to rake as much as you can within a set limit but it is not compared to other players. How much you win will depend on how much you rake, usually around 10% of what you have raked.
On our website we currently offer an exclusive monthly $3,500 10% rake chase for our Partypoker, Optibet and Bwin players only. Together we are giving our players the opportunity to get a percentage of the $3,500 extra cash.
