Rake Rebate

I finally got into a Rake Rebate situation I have been looking for. Those of you who play at Party would do well to copy me.

PokerSourceOnline recently started offering PokerNow as a Frequent Flopper affilliate. PokerNow is a Party Skin, so same games, same players, same FISH!!! I signed up with PokerNow through PokerSource Online's new page,

The difference between this and most other rake rebate programs is that it counts even if you don't contribute to the rake. As long as you were at the table and received cards, you get a portion of your share of the rake back. If there are 10 people at the table, your share is a tenth.

PSO also upped the rake rebate from 20% to 27.5%. For example, every hand that is raked $3 at a full table will give me $.30 share of the rake, of which I will get 27.5%. This counts even if you folded pre-flop and watched two maniacs go all in against each other. Whenever there is rake taken at your table, you get a piece.

Now this rebate doesn't come in cash, it comes in PSO points which you have to spend that the PSO store. But the stuff at the PSO store is pretty great, and they are adding stuff all the time. And you can get Amazon, eBay or even American Express gift cards/certificates, which are basically as good as cash. If you get $50 in rebates, you can get a $50 gift card, straight up.

People have been getting $100-$200 worth of rebates per 2-week period. If I can get $25-$50 per month I will be ecstatic. Some people got more than 100,000 points in a 2-week period after raising the percentage to 27.5%. That's over $1000 in rake rebate, people. For TWO WEEKS!

If that's not enough for you, they just started giving 100% deposit bonus up to $100. It might even be higher than $100, but I know of at least one person that got the $100 for his $100, 1000 raked hands required. If you're like me, you can get 1000 raked hands in a few days. Unless I multi-table, then I can get it in less.

If you decide to give it a try, please think of putting me as a referral on your PSO account. I will only get $5 for the referral, but if I get any more referrals from your for other PSO promotions (which are great and you will want to try) I will split them 50% with you.

Also, you will not be able to create a PokerNow account if you already have Party installed on your computer. There are ways around this. I can send them to you via email if you post a comment requesting it. If enough people ask, I can just post them here.

If anyone is interested or has any questions, just post them in the comments.

I've been looking to do this for quite a while now. Just never got around to it. From what I've read, they've made it harder to sign up on different skins, so if you wouldn't mind I'd like the info you have on it. My email is r.chamberlin at turn1media dot com.

This sounds like a great deal. I have both Party and Empire installed though. I'd still be very interested in signing up. My email is scall77 at hotmail dot com. If you could let me know how everything works, that'd be great.

Hi Dr Bogey.

Do you know if the rebate % is higher at Pokernow than through a standard PSO rake rebate directly with Party. With Party doing it's own Player Points system, if the percentages are the same I'm probably best sticking with Party/PSO rather than Pokernow/PSO.

Any ideas?

The rebates are the same at PokerNow and PartyPoker. And Ultimate Bet and Aztec Riches too. Just remember you can't have a Rake Rebate with Party if you have already had a real money account at Party. They are pretty unwavering about this. That's why I was so happy about the PokerNow thing.

Thanks Dr. B. I'm lucky enough to be probably the only person who originally signed up to Party via PSO, so if the rebate is the same I don't need to switch to PokerNow.

I don't have an Empire account, but am already set up on Party Poker. Does this mean I can sign up for the rebate? Can you email me at I'd surely list you as the referrer. Thanks!

You know this sounds cool, but I recently was recommended to a site that alleviates much of my rake concerns - CardCrusade.
It is a rake free site a (while they are in beta) and will take a subscription when it goes fully live. They are short on players so help them out they would appreciate it and it could help produce the webs first rake free poker site!
