Raking In Your Betsafe Bonus


The rake is the fee that the house charges for each hand of poker. It is a percentage of the pot that is taken after each betting round. Players can start raking in their bonus by playing in any of the excellent Betsafe real-money cash games and tournaments. A percentage of your bonus will be released once you reach your chosen bonus threshold. Users can check the progress of their bonus in the Poker Client under ‘My Account’, followed by ‘My Bonuses’. Users will also earn loyalty points in the process of unlocking the bonus. 10 loyalty points are awarded for every $1 (or cash equivalent) paid in rake/tournament fees.
