      What does this mean in terms of effective rakeback? I have been looking to join a site on the ipoker network and since you guys have a number of sites that are affiliates, I was wondering which one was best

      Translation of the example calculation from the German forum for the link in this news:

      Original by havox
      So, a general calculation:

      For each $1 rake, you get about 20 MCP's (yes, it can be different in the limits).

      We calculate each month:

      Rake * 20 = MCP's
      (The rake you can get from the known software tools or StrategyPoints/4).

      Take a look at the Level Chart to figure out which status this gets you for the month.

      Pre-Boost Points + Boost (Status-Percentage) = Boost Points of the month

      We do this every month. If we hold a status over a longer period of time, then we can use the

      Loyalty Boost after 3 OR after 6 months. Done.

      It's true that the system only really pays off if you hold a level for 3 or 6 months.


      Here's another example with real numbers:

      Elite Club - as of about $1,000 rake
      Quite a lot of active players should reach this level.

      $1,000 Rake * 20 = 20,000 MCP's

      After the Boost: 70,000 MCP's

      3 months Elite:
      3 * 70,000 MCP's = 210,000 MCP's
      + 105,000 MCP's = 315,000 MCP's
      -> about $600 bonus at $3,000 rake.

      6 months Elite:
      6 * 70,000 MCP's = 420,000 MCP's
      + 440,000 MCP's = 860,000 MCP's
      -> $1,000 Bonus + $500 Bonus + 2 * $100 Bonus -> $1,700 at $6,000 rake


      Club Diamond 1 - as of about $5,000 rake
      This level isn't as over the top as Club 2 and 3, and certainly achievable for many grinders.

      $5,000 Rake * 20 = 100,000 MCP's

      After the Boost: 550,000 MCP's

      3 months Diamond 1:
      3 * 550,000 MCP's = 1,650,000 MCP's
      + 760,000 MCP's = 2,410,000 MCP's
      -> 2 * $3,000 Bonus = $6,000 at $15,000 rake
      -> At 3* $6,060 = $18,180 even $7,500 bonus

      6 months Diamond 1:
      6 * 550,000 MCP's = 3,300,000 MCP's
      + 2,070,000 MCP's = 5,370,000 MCP's
      -> Almost 2* $7,500 = $15,000 bonus at just above $30,000 rake

      I am not sure i understand this bonus system. I am playing in FTP right now. For the last month i generated 8754FTP points and every point equals to 1 dollar rake. So if i generate the same ammount of rake in Mansion for 6 months what would by my bonus? The bonus for the diamond player?

      Hi silent,

      $8754 is the equivalent of approximately 175,000 points, which would make you a diamond club member.

      As a diamond club member, your points get an additional monthly boost of 450%, or 787,500. So for one month, you would have 962,500 points.

      If you were to maintain that level for 3 months, you would have 2,887,500 points (962500*3), and would be eligible for an additional booster of 760,000 points, for a total of 3,647,500 points. With this, you could buy $7500, and with a little more work, could buy an additional $3000.

      If you could keep it up for 6 months, you would be close to getting 25k.

      Hope that helps...

      I hope so, it doesn't make sense if you loose your club level and months of work.
