REAL DEAL POKER RAKEBACK
RealDealPoker – the start of an online poker revolution or a mere evolutionary sidetrack? That’s the question when it comes to this new online poker room, which has brought true innovation to the game since pretty much the beginnings of the online poker industry.
Believe it or not, the dealing process (the most controversial aspect of online poker to this day) is done with real poker cards at this site. They have a number of purpose-built mechanical dealing machines set up at their headquarters which use real decks to generate hole cards and community cards. The dealing process is filmed with video cameras and recorded for possible reviewing later on. All decks carry special bar codes which reviewers can use later to indentify hands.
On top of all this (how big the mechanical maintenance bill for the site will be is anyone’s guess at this point), players can cut the deck themselves, thus involving themselves directly in the outcome of each hand.
If this idea works, chances are it’ll become the norm for all online poker operations in the future. Due to the intricate nature of the entire setup though and the seemingly backward step in technology that the site has taken, the idea may yet end up bombing too.
Anyway, down to what you’re really here for: RealDealPoker offers its players a nice sign-up bonus (detailed above) and on top of that, a good rakeback deal too. At 30%, this Real Deal Poker rakeback deal may not top the industry average, but given the system at work behind the scenes and the fact that at Real Deal Poker you get the chance to play against Evander Holyfield (yeah, the Champ who’s had his ear bitten by Mike Tyson), that’s a more than reasonable package. Of course, you could sign up to play without rakeback too, but the reasoning behind such a move would elude all logic…anyway, the choice is yours. I know I’m getting aboard with this one.
From a graphical perspective, the software is no big bang. It does feature photorealistic avatars, but other than that, it’s average looking.
Bonuses won’t be deducted from your Real Deal Poker rakeback. The rake calculation method used by Read Deal Poker is the contributed rake method.
