If you have read up on how rakeback works then the next logical question would be how can you get a good rakeback deal. Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as finding and online poker room that promotes Rakeback payments.

There are plenty of poker rooms that pay Rakeback, including Full Tilt Poker, Cake Poker, UltimateBet and others, but none of them actually promote it. You can visit Full Tilt Poker, search every page of the site from top to bottom, email customer support, whatever makes you feel better, but you won’t be able to get online poker Rakeback through them.

To get online poker rakeback you have to register with a poker room via a 3rd party affiliate site that advertises rakeback. It’s not just because these sites are so special that they get to promote online poker Rakeback, they have signed a contract with their listed poker rooms.

What happens is, the 3rd party site proves itself to be good suppliers of new players for a poker sites. The poker site then grants them the opportunity to promote Rakeback. Each time a player signs up for an online poker room through the 3rd party site, the player receives Rakeback. In turn, the 3rd party site receives a much smaller percentage of the player’s contributed rake. This payment does not affect the player’s rakeback so it’s beneficial for all parties.

How to Earn Rakeback through 3rd Party Sites

When you find a 3rd party rakeback site they will most likely have a list of rakeback deals on offer on their home page. Select the one you’d like to learn more about. You should be given comprehensive details on the Rakeback program, including the Rakeback type, Rakeback percentage, how payments are received and the frequency of those payments.

If you like the online poker Rakeback deal, keep reading to find out how to take advantage of it. There are generally two ways to join an online poker room and earn Rakeback.

The first way is to enter a specific Rakeback promotion code, as provided by the 3rd party site. You will be instructed to enter this code, exactly as it appears, either during the sign-up phase, or the deposit phase. If entering the code during the deposit phase, it should also grant the standard welcome bonus offered by the online poker room.

The second way is to simply click on the link provided by the 3rd party site. This will lead you to the online poker room, where you can sign up your account as usual. The link will contain an affiliate ID, so it is crucial to click the link so that the poker room knows where you came from, and that you will be earning Rakeback via that 3rd party site.

Two best options currently on the market that 3rd party sites offer are 888 poker rakeback and poker heaven rakeback. This is not purely based on the rakeback percentage but also on the amount of total players in those poker rooms vs the amount of low-skilled players. It is better to play with easier opponents and the above two have a good ratio.
