Cardrooms all over the country have rakeback type programs, why don't these sites?

They do? Like what, free sandwiches or something?

Or put money directly into your players' bank based on number of hours played at a given limit. Your choice. I took the sandwiches.

I have it set up and everything seems to be working fine. My Roomate has as well.

Nice. But I wonder if they let you change affiliates once and resign up then I guess you could do it again and again in the future and always get the top offer available. This would be great.

Yes, and that's why this Party rakeback is probably going to be short lived, if it even happens at all.

It won't take long before the affiliates start undercutting each other yet again with better rates and defrauding the system with more players signing up for duplicate accounts. This is essentially what happened before, except they were using the skins to cannibalize the Party player base. Now, they'll just be cannibalizing each other's Party players. The site won't put up with it for long. They'll either turn off individual tracking again, or possibly even shut down the blatant ones.

This is exactly what Party wants to avoid. They will be making a conscious effort to make sure it doesn't happen.

One way to avoid this I think is to limit "approved" Party rakeback to reputable, established affiliates. With a limited number signed up, there'd almost be an oligopoly of sorts so there would be no need for cut-throat pricing. I don't really know how the "affiliate economy" works but i'd think Party would be relatively tight with how things are ran? From what I remember the rakeback situation on Empire on Eurobet were falling into an equilibrium of sorts, where the system working pretty well from what I remember.

actually yes, almost exactly.

theyre called comps. i dont know if youve ever been to a casino, but theyre more than very common. casinos track how much a player wagers/bets (or how much theyre going to lose basically) and then figures out how much they can give back to him in cool free [censored]. if some guy drops 1K at blackjack theyre going to give him back 200$ worth of rooms, drinks, cabs, etc because it makes him happy as a clam.

Of course they will give Roulette, Craps, and Blackjack players pretty good comps. But from my experience most casinos don't regard poker players as the same "donators" the table game players are. Like any casino is going to give a $3/6 live rock any comp?
