Rake break: PartyPoker slashes entry fees on satellites
- slashed satellite tournament fees
- reduced rake - only 4.55% on low stakes satellites
There’s no doubt about it: poker has gotten tougher these days. It isn’t like the 2000s, where you could stack off with top pair and get paid by worse. As a result, those who play the game seriously have relied upon rakeback more as time has gone by.
These players have tolerated rake increases by PokerStars, as it is one of the softest sites on the web. However, they recently made a move that started an exodus to competitor PartyPoker. Stars management devalued MTT chests by 55% in a bid to reduce the number of regulars.
This move has made it impossible for most regs to make a living while reducing winnings for all players. PartyPoker has capitalized on this news, making their site far more attractive to those who take the game seriously.
In addition to beefing up their VIP program, they have also decided to give some MTT regs a rake break. Learn all about it below.
What has PartyPoker done this time?
Starting on March 3rd, PartyPoker has reduced the rake on turbo and hyper-turbo satellites indefinitely. Anyone who grinds these will be happy to know that they will now pay 50% rake on these contests.
You can now expect to only pay 4.55% rake on low stakes satellites, and as little as 2.86% on high stakes satties.
Paired that with 20-40% weekly rakeback, and you have a site serious about appealing to poker players. Give this site a shot this weekend – put $50 on and see how far you can get!
