The rake is calculated as a percentage of the pot, and is normally capped at the maximum fee. Each online poker room determines its own rake structure. In some cases, the rake is calculated as a sliding scale. In other cases, the rake is collected from the most real money ring game pots.
Some online poker sites allow side games against “the house” for real money. These games may or may not have rules, but the odds are generally in favor of the house. This can be a good source of revenue for an online poker room.
Many internet discussion forums have reported cases of non-random card dealing. While this is not a rule, it could favor “bots” or players with limited skills. It may also increase bets and discourage new players.
