By , Rakeback.com Staff Writer

Many of Rakeback.com's partner sites offer Fast-Fold format poker tables. These high speed poker games eliminate the need for table selection and allow players to grind many more hands/hour thanks to a 'quick fold' option. This in turn boosts rakeback earnings.

Zoom Poker by PokerStars

Zoom Games NLHE (6m & FR) PLO 6m PLO8 6m NLO8 6m LHE 6m Five Card Draw 6m
Stakes $0.01/$0.02 -$2.50/$5 $0.01/$0.02 - $1/2 $0.25/$0.50 $0.10/$0.20 $0.10/$0.20 $0.10/$0.20

How many hands/hour per Zoom table? How many tables can I play?

250 hands per hour per table. Players have reported being able to grind 1000 hands per hour 4-tabling without a loss of pace. That's over triple the hands/hr of regular tables.

You can play eight Zoom tables. Each Zoom table counts for three regular tables, so the PokerStars 24 table cap stays the same. Players are restricted to four entries per Zoom pool (e.g. 25NL FR) to prevent game slowdown, but can play in several pools. PokerStars allows players that demonstrate consistent high-speed to have their table cap raised higher.

How much rakeback can I earn playing Zoom?

Zoom plays tight (low Plrs/Flop %), and as a consequence VPP/hand drops compared to regular tables. However, the faster pace makes up for this. Your rakeback hourly depends on your playing style due to the weighted-contributed rake method (looser players earn more RB), but below are some approximate figures for 6-max NL.

Stake Level

bb/100 Rake

Rake / 100 VPP / Hand VIP Level Maintained Hands / Month Rakeback Percentage Tables Played Rakeback Hourly
2NL 7.4 $0.15 0.015 Silver 50,000 19% 4 ~$0.30
5NL 7.7 $0.38 0.033 Gold 90,000 24% 4 ~$1
10NL 8.8 $0.88 0.061 Gold 50,000 24% 4 ~$2
25NL 8.1 $2.03 0.111 Platinum 70,000 28% 4 ~$5
50NL 7.4 $3.71 0.204 Supernova 40,000 37% 4 ~$13
100NL 6.1 $6.14 0.338 Supernova 25000 37% 4 ~$20
200NL 4.6 $9.18 0.505 SNE 165000 71% 4 ~$65
500NL 2.8 $13.75 0.756 SNE 110000 71% 4 ~$100

With VIP Program rewards, a continuing (year 2+) Supernova, four-tabling Zoom $0.50/$1, earns about $20/hour in rakeback alone, before profit at the tables. A breakeven Supernova Elite can make 3x - 4x that. 


Rush Poker by Full Tilt Poker

Full Tilt Poker Fast Fold Format - Rush Poker

Rush Poker Games NLHE 6m LHE 6m PLO 6m PLO8 6m
Stakes $0.01/$0.02 - $2/$4 $0.25/$0.50- $1/$2 $0.02/$0.05- $1/$2 $0.02/$0.05

How many hands/hour per Rush Poker table? How many tables can I play?

Depending on time and game Rush Poker player can expect to see anywhere from 125 hands to over 300 hands per hour.  You may have up to 4 entries in the same Rush Poker pool making the total hands anywhere from 500 to 1,200 per hour.

How much rakeback can I earn playing Rush Poker?

Rush Poker typically has fewer players seeing flops, thus your Full Tilt Points (FTP) will be lower in a single hand comparison to that of a normal game.  This is countered by being able to play Rush Poker 3x faster than that at a regular table.  FTPs are awarded based on your contribution to the po

Adrenaline Rush Poker

Adrenaline Rush Poker Games NLHE 4m

Like Rush, Adrenaline players can expect to see anywhere from 200 – 300+ hands per hour. Once again you may have up to 4 entries in the same Adrenaline Rush Poker pool.


Fast Poker by Relax Gaming (BetsafeUnibet & Betsson)

Betsson, Unibet & Betsafe Fast Fold Format - Fast Poker

Fast Poker Games NLHE 6m PLO 6m
Stakes €0.01/€0.02 - €0.50/€1 €0.02/€0.04- €0.25/€0.50

How many hands/hour per Fast Poker table? How many tables can I play?

This isn't displayed in the lobby, however Relax Gaming states 250 hands/hr can be played. Fast Poker can be played via browser and limited to 1 table, or through a downloadable software with max 9 table limitation and 4 entries allowed per prize pool.

How much rakeback can I earn playing Fast Poker?

Relax Gaming's Fast Poker is an independent platform that advertises via several Ongame and Microgaming rooms. Despite the association Fast Poker does not share the same playerpool, nor rakeback/VIP systems. In fact, Fast Poker currently does not award any rakeback or VIP points to players.

However, the network offers rolling bonuses equivalent to 30% cashback for high volume players. Rake at Fast Poker tables is generated 4x faster than on regular tables, making each bonus easy to clear. The Ongame network is also home to a high number of recreational players.


Blaze Poker by Microgaming (Nordicbet)

Microgaming Fast Fold Format - Blaze Poker

Blaze Games NLHE 6m
Stakes €0.01/€0.02 - €0.10/€0.20

How many hands/hour per Blaze table? How many tables can I play?

The H/hr display in the lobby is currently capped at 120+, however it is possible to play up to 300 hands per hour at each Blaze table, according to Microgaming. The network's main skin claims Blaze is the fastest game client in the industry - we hope to see higher stakes being offered soon and a more detailed lobby. 

There are no restrictions on the number of entries or total Blaze tables, up to the normal 20 table cap on Microgaming rooms. Blaze Poker also includes anonymous tables.

How much rakeback can I earn playing Blaze?

Blaze Rakeback & Dealing Speed

Microgaming's figures show a 400% increase in rakeback by playing Blaze. This would tie in with the ~300 hands/hour figure being 4x the dealing speed at a regular 6-max table (70-80 hands/hr).

It should be noted however that Microgaming rake is considerably higher in bb/100 than industry leader PokerStars'. High rakeback does not compensate for the effect high rake has on your winrate. 

One advantage Microgaming has over PokerStars is looser games with a higher percentage of recreational players. Their presence is profitable and goes some way to accounting for a high bb/100 rake.


FastForward Poker by PartyGaming (PartyPoker & WPT Poker)

FastForward Poker Games NLHE 6m NLHE HU
Stakes * $0.02/$0.04 - $0.50/$1 $0.25/$0.50

* The network plans to add Pot Limit Omaha, and higher stakes up to $5/$10.

How many hands/hour per Fast Forward table? How many tables can I play?

The PartyPoker and WPT Poker lobbies sometimes display the total H/hr dealt per pool, and sometimes by table - these tend to be in the 200 hands/hour range, however your mileage may vary.

Players can join a total of 4 FastForward Poker tables, within one pool or across several.

How much rakeback can I earn playing FastForward Poker?

Players should expect to earn PartyPoints around 2-3 times faster than on regular tables. Reaching VIP levels, earning enough points to purchase Points Store bonuses, and then meeting clearing requirements, can all be achieved earlier. 

Palladium VIP status pace (~$50/day) or Palladium Elite pace (~$220/day) being easier targets make it more realistic to aim for the top tier of rewards. Palladium VIPs earn 30% rakeback from $3,000 bonuses purchased for 20,000 Points, and approximately 10% in addition from monthly promotions, reload bonuses and random bonuses.

Palladium Elite VIPs can purchase 50% rakeback equivalent bonuses, and by dominating leaderboard-based subpromos can earn cashback approaching the 70% level, from our experience - check out our PartyPoker Reg's Guide for more info on this.

Update - at the end of March 2013 Party sadly removed the Palladium Elite tier, capping rewards at 30% before promotions, which also lowered in value.
