      certain rooms offer it. or certain websites will offer rakeback for using their bonus codes

      I get 33% rakeback weekly, so if I rake $100 in a week(which I haven't yet lol) I'll get $33 credited to my account, as is with my limit and time of play I get $10-$15 a week free from rakeback

      Basicaly IMO it is a must to get

      Hi Atown

      First welcome to our forums :)

      When you play online poker (or live poker in a casino) you pay rake for cash game or an entry fee for tournaments to the poker room. That is how they make their money. Some poker rooms give you some of the money back (that's rakeback). Some other rooms do not offer rakeback per say, but they offer a VIP program that gives you money back in terms of bonuses.

      Have a look at the different offers and make your choice. Most rooms have different advantages and sometimes they are not in terms of bonuses but in weakness of opposition and traffic.

      here is a list of the rooms and what they offer.

      Let us know how it goes :)

      Regards

      Thazar

      You'll have to open an account somewhere you've not played before as multiple accounts will be sniffed out and the second one you opened will be closed down. Multiple accounts are prohibited.
