Nordic Bet Poker Microgaming Network Rake Back
Players on the Microgaming Network can get 30% rake back paid directly into their account every 2 weeks. On top of this Nordic bet often offer sweeteners in the form of regular instant deposit bonuses, meaning the funds are available for play immediately, they also hold regular rake races that are exclusive to Nordic Bet. They also recently introduced their own version of Rush or Zoom poker called Blaze poker, it's the same principal, high octane poker!
Recently there's been some interesting developments with regards rakeback and Microgaming, the largest skins on the poker network formed a cartel and threatened to leave, tired of trying to compete with smaller rooms offering up to 50% rakeback under the table (which is against the network rakeback rules), they informed the network operators that either this issue be dealt with and erradicated from the network, or face losing their biggest customers. As a result of this affiliate earnings have now been capped to much lower figures than previously and so if you're looking for high percentage rakeback deals, don't bother wasting your time, as they simply don't exist anymore, one by one poker networks are adopting strict rules and procedures relating to rakeback. I suspect this is the general direction the industry as a whole is aiming for, harmonised flat rate VIP and rakeback systems.
Microgaming software is decent at best. It's not too flashy and serves its purpose. It features all the standard options one would look for in a poker room, but that's it. The graphics are run of the mill and the lobby works well. What it lacks in flash is made up by its ease of use. Microgaming recently launched their own version of rush poker too, only they called it fast poker. There's some great action at their fast tables, it always takes people a bit of time to adapt to new forms of poker, don't forget to bring your fishing rod.
You can now find a form of Rush or Zoom poker on Microgaming, on Nordic bet games are still somewhat quiet but stakes available and player pools are growing.
Traffic and Competition
The network traffic is above average. With an average 2,100 players online and a peak of over 8,000. This is enough to sustain multiple tables and limits for most variants of poker, holdem, Omaha, SNG and tournaments.
The competition is pretty weak making the network well worth playing on. Supporting over 8,000 players and most of them being weaker players, finding a good game is just a click away.
