Monday May 28, 2012 : MERGE GAMING BACK ON THE RAKEBACK TRAIL
Network skins to be permitted to offer rakeback effective June 1.
The online poker information site Rake Tracker reports that a Merge Gaming poker network spokesman has confirmed that the network is to allow its skins to offer rakeback to new players again effective June 1. Get your rakeback now.
"The announcement comes almost one year to the day [since] the top U.S. facing poker network halted rakeback for new players in the wake of Black Friday," Rake Tracker notes. "Merge Gaming will allow the same 35 percent contributed rakeback through rakeback providers that was offered prior to June 1st.”
Rake Tracker says the move follows Lock Poker's purchase of the Cake Poker Network and the subsequent increase of rakeback to 36 percent effective June 1st.
Although the position of all Merge skins on the issue is not presently known, apparently flagship Carbon Poker, along with Aced and PDC Poker will be among those offering rakeback to players.
Player accounts will be credited daily by Merge.
