The Rake During a Game

Loto-Québec generally takes a maximum rake of 5% of the total pot for Real Play poker games, up to the fixed maximum per game. This amount will vary depending on bets, number of players and the type of limits of the poker game (see table below). No rake is collected if the game ends during the first betting round.

 

The amount of the rake is shown next to the chip tray during ongoing poker games.

The rake during tournament play

You need to pay registration fees to take part in multi-table, sit & go, and satellite tournaments. The registration fees include:

  • The player’s contribution to the total tournament pot (also called the tournament purse).
  • The amount of the rake. The rake, collected as an administration fee, is fixed at a maximum of 10% of the player’s contribution to the total pot.

 

For example, if you sign up for a $10 + $1 tournament, $10 go directly into the total tournament pot and $1 is taken by Loto-Québec as the rake.
