Posted by GIOMi6: Rakeback is the money you get in return for playing cash games, this is a percentage of the rake taken by the pokerroom, this percentage will return to your balance on that pokerrroom.

Rakeback is a campaign some poker rooms have to reward players who earn more points by playing at their rooms. Usually this will reward the regular players, only those play enough to earn good rakeback. If you will play many hours a month, than its nice to take a look at the rakeback values of each site to opt. If its only to play every now and then, then don’t worry about it, focus on what you can win at the tables.

Posted by Serpang: So rake back just for cash game ? none for s n g and MTT ?
every kind of game is "eligible" for rakeback in the sense that whenevr you pay a commission to a pokerroom (rake in a pot of cash game or entry fee to a sng or MTT) you are generating rake and, if you have a rakeback deal, a percentage of this rake will be credited back periodically (weekly monthly etc) to your account.
