Rake refers to the amount taken out of the pot for a hand played or the fee charged for a poker tournament. 

The more rake a user pays, the more HighStakes Coins a user earns and these coins can be redeemed in the Store for items like Cash Game Tickets, HighStakes merchandise and more.

No Flop, No Drop & Rake Attribution

  • No rake is charged if action finishes before the flop.
  • Pot-Limit Omaha and No-Limit Hold’em cash games are raked at 5% after the flop.
  • For each pot, the rake is calculated in function of each player’s contribution to the pot

Cash Game Rake Example:

The below example will show how the rake attribution method functions on HighStakes

  • Player A puts €2 to the pot, 
  • Player B puts €3 to the pot. 
  • The total pot is €5
  • 5% rake from this pot is €0.25
  • Player A pays 40% rake - €0.10 
  • Player B pays 60% rake - €0.15.
Note: In reality if Player A won the pot, the user would be rewarded with €4.75, however the above example shows how this €0.25 of rake would be attributed for the purpose of the HighStakes VIP Program.

Tournament Fees

Fees charged on MTTs at HighStakes are typically between 5-10% of the buy-in amount

We anticipate tournaments to have overlays and a significant amount of the fees are used to guard against this and of course the HighStakes VIP Program is applicable to all tournaments played on the site.
