A lot of poker sites out there are against rakeback for various reasons. However, every poker room online is into player retention and loyalty. For this reason many of them offer a ‘points’ system which rewards players for their loyalty and for feeding the house with rake day in and day out. Most recent to integrate this system is Bodoglife.com and the details are pretty clear.
Players will receive $1 for every 100 points they accumulate. The minimum conversion is 2000 points ($20). The maximum amount a player can convert each month is 25000 points ($2500).
Points are accumulated in both ring games and tournament entries. For tournaments, points are awarded in increments of 3 points per $1 in fees paid. For ring games the points awarded are broke down according to the rake contributed to each pot.
â€¢ $1.00-$3.00: 1.00 points earned
â€¢ $0.50-$0.95: 0.50 points earned
â€¢ $0.25-$0.45: 0.25 points earned
â€¢ $0.05-$0.20: 0.10 points earned
Presenting this information on a poker portal can be a nice addition to the standard room reviews used by most affiliates. When trying to send players to Bodog let them know that on top of the instant deposit bonus they will also receive cash back each month. This is pretty much the equivalent of 30% rakeback offered by a majority of poker rooms.
