Poker rake

  • As a host, CristalPoker applies a Commission Charge ("Rake") to each poker game. At the cash game tables every hand is raked in Euros.
  • Rake is calculated from the amount in the pot at the end of each hand.
  • No rake is charged if action finishes before the flop.
  • Pot-Limit Omaha and No-Limit Hold’em cash games are raked at 5% after the flop.
  • For each pot, the rake is calculated in function of each player’s contribution to the po

Example: Player A puts €2 to the pot, Player B puts €3 to the pot. The total pot is €5. 5% rake from this pot is €0.25. Player A pays 40% rake - €0.1 and player B pays 60% rake - €0.15.

CristalPoker reserves the right to change the rake on certain tables.

CristalPoker caps the rake at €4 on all limits.
