Rakeback is money that players get paid back for playing at a poker site. It is a percentage of the rake, and is usually somewhere between 20% and 50%. It is not unusual that a player pays $1000 in rake every month, and with a 30% rakeback deal, he would therefore get $300 back. Sometimes rake back is offered by the poker room but most of the times players have to sign up through an affiliate.
