We want to make sure your online poker experience is fair. That doesn’t just mean the best security and the fastest cashouts. It also means calculating rake the right way. So rather than relying on one poker rake calculation, we use the Weighted Contributed Rake Method to calculate the release of bonuses and to calculate the Rank Points you earn as part of our Elite Benefits Program.
With the Weighted Contributed Rake Calculation, players earn more credit based on how much rake they contribute to a pot. So a player who sticks it out until the end of the hand and contributes $2 in rake to a pot will earn more credit towards their bonus release than a player who only contributed $0.25, players who fold without putting even the blinds share no credit at all as they didn’t contribute to the rake.
The big advantage of the Weighted Contributed Rake Method is that players earn bonuses faster at Black Chip Poker. That’s because when a customer plays more hands and contribute more to each pot, he’ll earn more points.
