Online Poker Rake & Tournament Fees

WHAT IS A POKER RAKE?

When playing online poker cash games (also known as ring games), you are charged a minimum percentage of the pot, known as rake, which Borgata does rather than charge you a membership fee.  For every dollar in rake collected, you also earn iRewards Points, which can be redeemed in BorgataPoker.com loyalty store for items such as tournament dollars, tournament entries, cash, and other exciting items. 

HOW DO WE WORK IT OUT?

Borgata calculates our poker rake fees based on the type of game and the pot limit. The table below details the rake amount for each game type and limit:

The poker rake generated is proportional to the percentage contributed to the pot. To get rake on a hand you must have been dealt cards, contributed to the pot and the game must generate at least $0.01 in rake for you.

For example, in a $0.05/$0.10 No Limit game with 8 players the rake is $0.01 per $0.18 pot, with a maximum rake of $1.00.

ONLINE TOURNAMENT ENTRY FEES

When registering for an online poker tournament, there is a fee charged as part of the total buy-in.  The fee ranges based upon tournament buy-in amount (typically ranges from $0 for a freeroll tournament up to a maximum of 20% of the buy-in)

All tourney fees are shown on the buy-in screen.  All transactions, including poker rake, are in US dollars.
