      Ok so at william hill there is no rakeback, but they have a VIP system, wondering how this system works and the VIP perks. Is it based on rake produced? Because ive played ~15k hands and im still 1 star.

      Hi keoghh,

      You get $5 bonus for every 350 WH points, so do 350/5=70 <-- this is how many points you need to get $1 of bonus. For every $1 of rake you get the base rate of 30 WH points. Based on tournament fees though, so could be 10% either way depending on play styles.

      You need to make 70 points to get $1, so how much rake do you need to make (bear in mind that $1 rake = 30 points)

      so if $2 is 60 points, then it must be $2.33 to get 70 points which means you need to rake $2.33 to get $1 bonus. which gives you:

      1/2.33= 1.4291845493562232*100=43% rakeback

      I get a whopping 8 WH for every $1 raked on cash games. So if I want to earn that FDB of 200% up to $2000 I'm getting a whopping 11% rakeback?!?!?

      350 each $5
      to earn 350 wh I need to rake $43.75 (350/8)

      5/43.75= 11%

      Is this a joke?

      Hi ragney,

      I've asked David to come by and help you with the calculation.

      Edit: He will answer to your other post here: Choosing the right Poker Room for you!

      Ok just seen ur post further up ingrid, and i aint best at maths so can u simple it down, lol.

      So im VIP level 1 i think, do you know how i can increase my VIP status, played about 16.5k hands on WH, mainly 2NL and still only status 1.

      Also how do i know when i receive this rakeback, for example i had HEM trial installed, and when i clicked to view the graph, and clicked include rackeback and bonuses, the graph didnt change, hence y i didnt think i got rakeback on WH. How often is the rakeback paid?

      Sorry, lots of questions, hope you have the answers :D

      There is no rakeback on ipoker (which includes William Hill). However their VIP scheme allows you to spend your points to 'buy' cash.

      The more points you have the better the rakeback equivalent %. At the lowest levels I think this is about 20% rakeback.

      Ok thanks for your reply, how do i find out how many points i have and how do i spend them?

      Also how much rake or how many hands does it take to move up the VIP levels?

      EDIT: Ok found out where i spend them, on the website, but how do i find out how many points i have?

      Your VIP level changes on a monthly basis based on your points earned in the previous calendar month. It is at this time you will get your bonus WH points from your VIP level multiplier (based on the level you achieved for the month)

      I can't remember exactly where your WH point total is but it is in the cashier somewhere; under bonuses I think. Have a new computer and so don't have WH installed anymore to look it up.

      Actually, there are some accounts that get a % rakeback on some ipoker skins, but do not recieve the vip scheme.

      so basicly there is no rakeback on iPoker network(rakeback = getting % of your generated rake )
      I saw a lot of posts and i still don't know how you get money. Can someone make a simple post?

      Not sure about all the ipoker networks, but for william hill, wen you generate rake you get points, then when you collect enough points, you can trade these points for money directly.

      Smallest one is something like 3500 points for $2.50 which goes into your account, so this $2.50 will be a % of the rake you produced. (Say you had to generate $10 of rake to get these 3500 points, then you get $2.50 back, so that would be 25% rakeback, just an example)

      Hope this helped :)
