Cake Poker rakeback summary.
|Bonus:||110% up to $600|
Cake is one of the more popular rakeback poker rooms due to the fact that it offers a higher than average rakeback deal and accepts US players. The room is also larger than most (it's on the Cake Network), which means that there is a strong volume of traffic at the tables throughout the day.
The poker room software is good, and it is perfectly possible to win money across all of the NL Hold'em stakes at Cake if you have a solid strategy. This makes Cake Poker a great all-round room for rakeback players.
More Cake Poker rakeback information.
- Rakeback deal.
Cake Poker offers a flat rakeback deal to all players. This is the maximum rakeback amount at this room and across the whole Cake Network.
- Cake rakeback calculation.
Cake uses the dealt rakeback calculation method, which means that the total rake is shared equally between all of the players at the table, regardless of how much each player has put in to the pot (or if they have even entered a pot).
So for example, let's say you are playing in a $400 NL game with 4 other players at the table at Cake and the final pot reaches $200. Regardless of the amount of money you had put in to the pot, the $20 rake (5% of the $400 pot) will be shared equally between all 4 players, which means that you will have effectively paid $5 in rake. This will result in $1.65 rakeback (33% of $5) from this one pot alone.
The dealt rakeback calculation is less common than the contributed method and it means that you are able to generate rakeback from pots that you haven't played in.
- CakePoker rakeback payments.
Cake Poker rakeback is paid weekly within 48 hours of the start of Wednesday, so you should receive your rakeback payments by midnight on Thursday at the latest. The rakeback week start from 00:00 on Wednesday right up to 11:59 on the following Tuesday.
- Cake Poker bonus and rakeback.
Cake Poker does not deduct bonus money from any rakeback calculations. This means that you will receive the maximum rakeback amount in addition to the new player bonus whilst it clears.
So for example, lets say that you accumulate around 350 FPPs, which should release $20 worth of bonus money. This will result in you having generated about $50 in MGR. Instead of Cake deducting this $20 bonus money from your $50 before calculating rakeback, you will receive rakeback on the full $50 ($16.5 rakeback) in addition to the $20 bonus money.
Can I get rakeback at Cake if I already have an account?
It is not possible to switch your current Cake Poker account to rakeback if you already have one. However, the good news is that there are a number of other rooms on the same network that offer the same rakeback deal.
Please contact me to see if I can help you find another rakeback deal just as good as this one if you already have an account at CakePoker.
