Default Time/seat charges vs rake

Having only frequented casinos where they use the rake system, I was wondering if some posters here could enlighten me as to how a time or seat charge works, and what types of casinos employ them (large, small, indian, AC, etc). Is it just a flat rate? Or can someone request that instead of rake? Sorry for the generally noobish question, but I could not find it in the FAQs.

For example: Foxwoods 1/2 NL

The Time Charge is $5 per 1/2 hour:
Every time a new dealer comes, players
put up a redbird which gets dropped
once all seats have been collected from.

If you are unfortunate to have shown up
at the time it is collected, well, you owe
$5 just for sitting down! You may not
choose time or rake - it is one or the other
and is usually listed on the placard for the table,
otherwise ask the dealer or the floor.

$5/half in 1-2 NL is way too much, as the other poster alluded to. Time charge is usually used in 30/60 games and a lot of NL games, since in 30/60 games and up it's quite annoying for the dealer to have to constantly make change to drop the rake.

One of the best NL games I have seen is the 5/5 NL500 game at Casino Niagara Fallsview, which takes $12/hour in time charge with no rake. Beautiful.

I had heard Foxwoods charges a rake and time charge, too. Is this true?

The Games at Foxwoods have a rake or Time, one or the other, not both. I think all Limit games are rake and most/or all of the NL/PL games are time.
