The business model has come in for some criticism, but Zero Rake.com is proving popular with the poker fraternity, it seems. This Las Vegas From Home powered site is claimed to be the first rake-free online poker room, and charges a monthly fee of around $6 for the first month and $30 a month thereafter.
Just to show players how much they are saving, a cool "rake meter" displays what the player would have paid in rake, based on $25/$5 rake any limit. The LVFH stats recorder is reported to run efficiently, as does the actual play. If this innovative idea works out it could be the precursor to similar sites...and poker players will save substantially and probably spend it on more gambling!
