Play65 rake structure changed – rake only 6.5%
Play65 recently changed their rake structure. It makes sense – Play65 pay only 6.5% rake. According to the information on their site the rake structure is changed as follows:
- Commission is taken from the final winning sum (the winner pays for both players)
- $0.1 up to $0.49 : ¢3
Only when playing backgammon online for less than $0.5, the commission is fixed on only ¢3 for each player.
- $0.5 and above : 6.5%
Example: Player A and Player B play a game with an initial sum involved of $10 and Alex wins.
$8.7 will be added to Player A’s balance and $10 will be deducted from Player B’s balance (the commission is ¢65 x 2 = $1.3).
- Rating based rake is removed. Before when a game was played by players with different skill levels the winner had to pay almost double the rake. Now this has been removed.
* The same rules apply for all types of games : Single game, Series or games played in the Dark Room.
