What are “deductions”?

Reductions are costs that poker rooms charge against your generated rake. For example, if you generate $1,000 in rake one month but you also earn a $100 bonus, your calculated rakeback amount would be XX% of $900.

Even though your rakeback payment will be affected by this, it’s still worth clearing bonuses when they are offered. You’ll get the entire bonus plus whatever leftover rakeback you have earned.

Don’t worry – you will rarely go negative due to deductions. Even if you do, that negative amount will be wiped clear the next month. You will never “owe” money to anyone due to deductions.
