Table Rake

www.pokerking.com generates revenues for the services they provide to the poker players. Unlike with casino games the house does not have mathematical advantage on the game instead we charge a small fee from every winning pot to cover expenses for providing our customers with quality services. The fee is 5% or of the pot with various caps depending on the game or table limit and blinds. The lowest rake cap starts with $0.01 cents and goes up to $3 on high end tables. The house uses this revenue to run the business and large portions of the revenues are channeled back to loyal PokerKing customers with our Royal club (loyalty program), guaranteed tournaments, freerolls, sponsorship of live events, King and Queen promotion and many other promotions that benefit www.pokerking.com players.

Fixed Limit (FL)

At www.pokerking.com we do not charge house service fees in Holdem games on blinds or before the flop.
Number of Players on the table refers to number of players that received cards (dealt-in players).
We listed the tables by “Blinds” rather than by table limit as most new players find it difficult to understand the difference.
