When looking at the multitude of rakeback offers available today, it's hard not to notice just how similar most of the rakeback affiliates have become, from the rakeback percentage offered, to the poker rooms supported, even the freerolls and rake races on tap.
There are two reasons that I am aware of that are responsible for this monotony among rakeback offers. For one, most poker rooms set a limit for the rakeback percentage that can be offered by rakeback affiliates, effectively limiting the affiliates' options as far as what they can offer to distinguish themselves from the herd. The second part of the problem is the proliferation of sub-affiliate skins, which are essentially duplicate copies of the bigger rakeback affiliates.
As such, it's rare occurrence that I come across a rakeback provider that offers something truly unique. In the case of Swedish-based affiliate Rakeback Lovers
the point of distinction could be uniquely valuable to some of you: the boutique affiliate promises complimentary payments via bank transfer. That's right, reach $25 in rakeback, and Rakeback Lovers will wire you the funds instead of the usual poker room account transfer.
In addition to the free bank payments, the site also offers unique MGR bonuses that work very similarly to poker room signup bonuses, although more modest in value at just under $100.
With both of these extras combined with industry standard freerols and rake races it's easy to see that Rakeback Lovers could hold a lot of appeal for poker players. Has anybody had any experience with this affiliate? Feel free to share your experience in the comments.
