Rake Free Poker Site Bucks the Trend
12th of April 2014
When it comes to making money, online poker sites have to use something called a rake, which is where the site takes a percentage of each pot that is played in a cash poker game. As for tournament poker games, each player pays an entry fee. One poker site is threatening to upturn the apple cart when it comes to "the way things are done."
World Sports Exchange is a highly successful and profitable online business, and they owned a poker site called World Poker Exchange. Because the parent business is so successful the poker site does not need to make any money. As such World Poker Exchange is now entry fee and rake free. This may cause a ripple among all of the other for-profit online poker rooms.
