MicroGaming Poker Network alters rakeback calculation method

Posted by Gerry Poltorak on Jan 06, 2010 Posted in Poker Industry News | No Comments »

The Microgaming Poker Network confirmed yesterday that it would be moving away from their “Contributed Rakeback” method to a “Weighted Contributed Rakeback” method. In order to be eligible for rakeback from the weighted method, a player must contribute to the pot in some way: AND the more they contribute, the higher their rakeback will be.

Microgaming is a major player in the online poker world –the network is currently ranked 9th in terms of traffic by PokerScout.com–  with its confederation of dozens of small online poker sites, including Poker Rewards, Poker Share, and Mansion Poker.

The shift in rakeback calculations seems to be an effort to discourage the low-limit grinders, who play super-tight and rely solely on their rakeback earnings as profit. The practice can be the kiss of death for sites with low and mid-level traffic who are trying to bring in players. Since new players tend to get frustrated when only two or three people are seeing the flop, the weighted contributed rakeback method encourages players to loosen-up.
