hey nefarious26;

i'm sorry for late reply. Here's how I see it after checking their webpage:

Iron: 1.5% rakeback
Bronze: 13% rakeback
Silver: 16% rakeback
Gold: 23% rakeback
Platinum: 27% rakeback
Diamond: 39% rakeback

All those numbers are based on single month of playing assuming you start and finish at the same VIP level. Cashing points into cash & monthly bonus were counted in (i'm not aware about anything else).
It's close to impossible to count rb for cash games players because it depends on your plying style, so this summary is based on sngs/mtts. If you're CG player, take it as an example, but there's no reason why should anyone's numbers differ significantly.

+ you get more while clearing FDB

Good luck at the tables!

10 000 points @ Silver level = 10 000 * 0.0065 = \$65
10 000 points cashout = 10 000 / 5 000 * 5 = \$10

rakeback / month = \$75 => 52.08 gbp => 52.08/510 = 10.2% rakeback

I think it was 500 points for every 5\$ instead of the 5000 you used there, so that would acount for 165\$, so 114.5 gbp. When you put this in the equation compared to paid rake you get about 22.5%

All players with a minimum VIP Level of Bronze (Level 2) have the option to cash in their VIP Club Points at a rate of \$5 for every 5,000 points.

That's what is written on BetFred page
