2. Why some poker rooms do not have direct cashier available?

    There are 2 ways to make a deposit or a withdrawal:

    1. direct cashier - the player deposits / withdraws himself, using his personal ewallet, credit card or bank account

    2. via ItalyPokerDeals - we intermediate the transactions


   Sometimes, withdrawing money from a poker room takes more than we wish, from a few days up to several weeks or even months, because some poker rooms are working very slowly. In order to avoid such situations, we intermediate these transactions, and we guarantee we make the payments in a few days time.



Poker Generalities FAQ


1. What is rake / rakeback?

    Rake is the scaled commission fee taken by a cardroom operating a poker game. It is generally 2.5% up to 7% of the pot in each poker hand, up to a predetermined maximum amount.

    Rakeback is a percentage of the rake, that goes back to the player.


2. How is rake calculated?

Rake calculation methods:

    Dealt Cards - If you are dealt cards in a hand then you are deemed to have contributed to the pot and therefore you are allocated an equal share of the rake taken. This is regardless of whether you fold straight away or not. Rooms: Cake.    

    Average Contributed - Is similar to the dealt cards method in terms of its calculation, but you must contribute to the pot. If you fold without contributing to the pot, then your rake consideration is zero. Rooms: PlanetWin365.

    Weighted Contributed - You get allocated the weighted proportion of the pot that you contributed. Rooms: Unibet, Poker Heaven, Fortune, InterPoker, Carbon, Poker Stars, Party Poker.

  In addition OnGame have developed their own take calculation method, called Essence model, which attributes rake to players based on a secret formula which takes into account their winnings/losses.


3. What is AAMS?

AAMS (Amministrazione Autonoma dei Monopoli di Stato – Autonomous Administration of State Monopolies) is the Italian gaming authority that issues licenses. Since March 2010 when the new law came into power, foreign gambling operators have been able to launch online real money games. Before offering their services to Italian citizens, they should get an Italian license.
