Poker rooms use different methods to calculate rake. According to BetOnline, rake is calculated using the weighted contributed rake method.
Way less-known in the online poker world than it probably should be, BetOnline poker is one of the more interesting operations out there, on account of the fact that it is one of the still-undiscovered nooks of the poker industry. It is untainted by pro grinders and as such, the games it features are still loose and attractive. It also accepts traffic from countries like the US, a feature which - in this day and age - is a truly outstanding one indeed.
The site is Mac compatible, but despite all its pluses, the traffic it currently draws is relatively modest. The sign-up bonus on the other hand is huge and there are all sorts of attractive promotions running at the site all the time. The match percentage is a massive 200% and the maximum on the bonus is a stunning $2.5K. The minimum required deposit at the site is $50.
The tournament action at BetOnline Poker is good, although that doesn't really hold true for the middle-to-higher stakes. In fact, throughout the site, the action is concentrated at the micro stakes, so for those looking to high-roll, it might not be the right destination.
The BetOnline software is good. It doesn't stand out in any way, but it doesn't have to, as long as the games running on it are juicy-enough. Features-wise it covers everything it may possibly have to cover and more.
One of the most attractive features of BetOnline Poker is that they run freerolls every hour, allowing beginners to build up their bankrolls through skill. They hand out some $20K in monthly rake races and once a month, they do in fact offer a $100K guaranteed MTT.
BetOnline accepts players from all countries except the following: Albania, Algeria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Estonia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Vietnam, UAE, Turkey, Tunisia and Oman.
