What is a rake race?
A rake race is a competition that rewards players for making more rake than the villains during a specific period. Usually, a rake race defines a guaranteed prize pool (for example, $10,000), a time frame (15 days, a month), and a set of conditions (number of points awarded for $1 in rake, number of players who receive a prize, included and excluded games, etc.). Every month Worldpokerdeals hosts several rake races at different poker rooms, which increases the EV of the players that get a reward.
Rakeback or rake race?
Giving rakeback to the players and creating loyalty are the main reasons to host a rake race, and it adds fun because players compete against each other. The good news is that all our rake races are paid ON TOP of our rakeback deals. Therefore, the players who get a reward from a race will increase their rakeback deals during that period.
