      whenever a pot is played the house takes a % of that pot (usually 5%) as fee for using the room, this is the rake.

      Rakeback is when you get some of that cash back in your pocket, so if you play a lot you can earn some hefty bonus $$.

      theyre paid out to your account on a regular basis automatically, and the payout is ofc. varied by the amount you have paid in rake during that interval from payout to payout.

      I know this might seem a very silly question, but I thought I'd ask anyway...

      My mate has signed up to Full Tilt without using any rakeback links or anything, is there any way he could be eligible for rakeback from any site ?
