As a followup to my post about rakeback options, I want to make everyone aware, that, if you do sign up for a Cake Poker network rakeback account, do NOT do it at CardSpike. CardSpike is a rogue skin on the Cake Poker network that has been delaying making payouts for months now. You can read more about it here and here.
If you’re going to sign up for rakeback on the Cake Network, do it either at Cake Poker or at Players Only. There are many reputable rakeback operators who run rakeback on these networks. For instance, I just linked to This Is The Nuts, which offers both sites (along with big rake races and freerolls). PocketFives Rakeback offers both rooms. In my previous post I linked to RakeBrain, which is another reputable operator. And there are others as well that will always pay you your money on time. Of course, TITN’s rake races ($15,000 monthly at Cake, $10,000 monthly at Players Only) are much bigger than the small rake races at a place like rakebrain ($3000 monthly at Cake, $0 on Players Only from what I can see), so you should take that into account. Because, even if reputable rakeback sites will pay you, some others will pay you more.
But either way, do NOT open an account on CardSpike. Also, please tell you friends about the CardSpike situation so no one else gets caught up in it.
