Microgaming Rake

MPN Rake

What is rake?

Rake is the amount of money the network operator deducts from every pot as a fee for hosting their poker games. Rake is very important in the poker industry. Without rake, poker rooms and poker networks would not be able to provide software updates, offer support or even host servers to run the games.

It is obvious that rake has to be payed by someone. Of course, you want to pay as little as possible. With a good bonus or rakeback offer, your actual payed rake will be minimized. Others can pay the full amount, right?

MPN Rake Structure

The rake taken at a microgaming poker room depends on the currency that is used at the tables of that poker room. There is one rule that applies to all poker rooms:

  • No rake is taken from the pot if there is no flop.
