What is "Total Rake" or "Net Revenue"?
Each poker room may have a different term for "Total Rake" or "Net Revenue", but it is essentially the total rake paid by you as calculated by the poker room. When Rakeback Rolls pays your rakeback, it is always a percentage of your Net Revenue.

Almost all of your rakeback stats are updated daily. If a site does not update daily there will be a note of this. There can sometimes be delays with the rakeback stats updating, but these delays are usually out of our control and are usually not more than a couple of days.
Can I Still Get Bonuses at a Poker Room if I Receive Rakeback?
Yes! You will still be able to receive bonuses offered by the poker room and any other promotions offered by the poker room or Rakeback Rolls if you receive rakeback from Rakeback Rolls. Bonuses are often deducted from your Total Rake, but it is much better to receive both bonuses and rakeback than either by themselves.
When are Rake Back Payments Made to Me?
Most poker rooms pay rakeback automatically to your poker room account. Some pay weekly, twice a month or monthly. For poker rooms that do not pay rakeback the payment is made here under our Payments section at 12:01am CT on the 10th of every month for the previous month's play.
Note: If your payment is made here you must have a rake back balance of $20 or more from the previous month in order to receive your rake back payment. If you are owed less than that, it will be carried over to the following month and will paid once your total has reached $20.
