At 9stacks, we have developed a rake structure keeping our users’ best interests in mind. Our rake structures are the simplest and most intuitive amongst all our competitors – and possibly the lowest as well, though we don’t benchmark this all the time.

What is rake? Simply put, rake is the service fee charged by 9stacks for the poker games you play. This is automatically calculated as a % of the winnings in each hand and deducted from the pot before it is transferred to the winner. We pay GST on the rake but that is included in the figures below. For higher value tables, there is a cap on the maximum rake that we charge on one hand. Rakes/caps online are usually lower than offline (e.g., at casinos or licensed poker clubs).

How much is the rake we charge?

For tournaments, we charge a flat 10% one-time rake (Inclusive of 18% GST) (e.g., a buy-in of Rs 1000 + Rs 100 fee)

For private tables, we charge a flat 4% rake (Inclusive of 18% GST)

For heads-up tables (i.e., 2 -player tables), we charge a flat 3% rake (Inclusive of 18% GST)

For other cash tables,

  • For Big Blinds < Rs. 5, we charge a flat 5% rake (Inclusive of 18% GST)
  • For Rs 10 and Rs 20 Big Blinds, we charge 5% rake (Inclusive of 18% GST) and a cap of 10 BB.
  • For Rs 50 Big Blind, we charge 5% rake (Inclusive of 18% GST) and a cap of 8 BB.
  • For Rs 100 Big Blind, we charge 5% rake (Inclusive of 18% GST) and a cap of 5 BB.
  • For Rs 200 Big Blind, we charge 4% rake (Inclusive of 18% GST) and a cap of 3.5 BB.
  • For Rs 400 Big Blind, we charge 4% rake (Inclusive of 18% GST) and a cap of 2.5 BB.
  • For Rs 600 Big Blind, we charge 4% rake (Inclusive of 18% GST) and a cap of 2 BB.
  • For Rs 1000 Big Blind, we charge 4% rake (Inclusive of 18% GST) and a cap of 2 BB.

PS: no flop no drop - no rake is deducted from the pot if a hand ends pre-flop & in all other conditions, the aforesaid rake structure is applicable.
