Rakeback is given per account holder and duplicate accounts are prohibited.
Poker rooms use several different methods to calculate rake. It is essential to be familiar with the method used because it has an effect on your player MGR and rakeback.
According to Fatbetpoker, the method used to calculate rake/rakeback is the contributed rake method.
Fatbetpoker is trying to set a new standard for online poker promotions. They claim to focus on players from the European region and cater to their needs.
Fatbetpoker is looking for professional players to represent their brand in land based events so you can expect to see a lot of promotions involving those types of opportunities.
Part of the Poker Nexus network and currently the only site that offers rakeback from that network.
NOTE: Does not accept players from USA, Canada, Singapore, Turkey and Australia.
Fatbetpoker understands the importance of providing players with a safe and secure environment in which they can play their favorite game. After all, the future of online poker greatly depends on how well companies manage to keep their rooms fraud and collusion free. The measures taken against people caught cheating one way or the other are radical. Unfair players will have their accounts terminated at once with all their winnings confiscated. Fatbetpoker may later decide to follow criminal prosecution of the player in question.
Bottom line: Don't cheat at Fatbet, you won't like the consequences.
Targeting the European market, Fatbet has completely turned its back on the good old U.S. of A. No American player is accepted here though players from just about any other country are accepted.
The signup bonus though reasonable, is not where Fatbetpoker shines. They do shine at rakeback though (which is, let's face it, the most important thing when choosing a poker room) as they offer a whooping 40%, more than most other poker rooms.
The promotions system they have is another major attraction, besides the above mentioned Fatbet rakeback. As you play at their room, you generate FPPs (Frequent Player Points). These FPPs can be traded in for Fatbet tournament buy-ins.
