Below are the basic rules and legal stuff that go with using our site. It isn't supposed to be complicated stuff so if you have any questions about it or you are unsure of something then please contact us with your enquiry.
The EuroPokerDream Web Site is offered to you conditioned on your acceptance without modification of the terms, conditions, and notices contained herein. Your use of the EuroPokerDream Web Site constitutes your agreement to all such terms, conditions, and notices.
EuroPokerDream reserves the right to change the terms, conditions, and notices under which the EuroPokerDream Web Site is offered at any time without notice. These updates will take effect as soon as they are posted here. It is your responsibility to check back regularly for any changes. Please note that the rates of rakeback for which you qualify are determined by the Poker Rooms with whom we work. If for any reason the Poker Room decides to reduce this rate at a later date for any reason, it is not a decision that we can affect. Providing we are informed of such change as well, we will endeavour to give you notice as soon as we can. It is your responsibility when signing up to a poker room to make sure that you adhere to the terms and conditions of that room, and are not contravening any rules/laws that the poker room or the territory/state/country (in which you are resident) have governing an account such as age or legality to wager on line. If for whatever reason a poker room offering rakeback defaults on its agreement to pay rakeback to you, EuroPokerDream shall not be liable for any outstanding rakeback monies owed to any player by that room.
All Poker rooms have the right to withhold rakeback payments in the event they believe that there is reason to believe that a player is using their poker account for fraudulent purposes. In this event they can refuse to release commission to EuroPokerDream. Whilst these occurrences are few and far between, they are nonetheless possible and such player may be required by the room to pay such amounts withheld. EuroPokerDream depends on reports from the poker rooms to display the amount of rake generated and rakeback earned by players. The gross/rake numbers we receive from the poker rooms at the month end are subject to change at any time on account of extra/missing data, fraud and chargebacks. Poker software systems such as Poker Tracker and Poker Office do NOT provide accurate data. See FAQs for more information on this. The month end reports that we get from the poker rooms are final and EuroPokerDream are unable to enter into any discussion with any poker room on this issue as this would breach the poker room's player confidentiality rules. If you feel that the amount of rake you have generated in any given month is wrong, you will need to consult directly with the poker room before talking to EuroPokerDream. In order for a player to receive payments, EuroPokerDream need to access online reports from the Poker Rooms they are affiliated with. These reports in the various forms show some, or a combination, of the following information: Player Name, player email, Player ID Number, Number of raked hands played, Rake generated in a given month, Overall Rake generated. By signing up through EuroPokerDream with any poker room for rakeback or VIP program, you are granting us permission to view these reports and are also granting permission for the respective poker room to allow us access to see said reports and the information contained therein.
All rakeback payments are calculated upon net rake. On occasion this is done once player retention bonuses, any other site give-aways and transaction charges have been deducted by the Poker Rooms. Some rooms do not deduct bonuses. At some rooms negative net rakes at the end of a month are carried forward to the next month regardless of whether the associated poker room resets negative balances for EuroPokerDream to zero. This is because EuroPokerDream net rake for a poker room is calculated as a total of all players belonging to that room. Therefore a net negative rake player will offset a player with a positive rake and whilst the positive rake player qualifies for rakeback, EuroPokerDream is not allocated a corresponding commission from the poker room because of the other player's negative contribution. Therefore negative rake must be carried forward to make up for the losses incurred by EuroPokerDream. Players registered to more than one account through EuroPokerDream will have their net rakes combined and if possible negative balances will be offset against positive ones and any referral fees or rake race/chase winnings. If a player signs up for poker rakeback and also chooses to play at that Poker room's casino (if it has one) they will not be entitled to cashback on any losses they occur at the casino. A player who signs up through a EuroPokerDream poker link will only be entitled to rakeback on poker providing the room they have chosen caters for it. Some poker rooms offset a player's casino play against their rake generation. If this is the case casino winnings are offset against poker rake generated and so a player may find that they receive reduced or no rakeback at all in a given month. EuroPokerDream shall not be liable for any change of rakeback program or loyalty scheme by a poker room which results in any loss of income for any player regardless of whether or not the player was adequately informed of said change by either the room or EuroPokerDream. It is always the player's responsibility to check the precise terms of the loyalty/rakeback program with the poker room should they suspect any change in said program.
Absolute Poker - Absolute also make deductions for transaction charges (currently only for US players) - these vary between 7-10% depending on your method of deposit. Negative balances at the end of the month are carried forward to the following month.
UltimateBet Poker - Ultimate also make deductions for transaction charges (currently only for US players) - these vary between 7-10% depending on your method of deposit. Negative balances at the end of the month are carried forward to the following month.
Full Tilt - Please note that Full Tilt deduct transaction charges for deposits and some withdrawals, points used for merchandise in the stores and contributions for overlay freerolls from a player's MGR. Please also note that if your account at FT is closed due to already having a primary account you will not necessarily be entitled to any further rakeback on that account. This will be at the discretion of Full Tilt. Whatever amount you have received up until that point you can keep but you may not be able to get any balance owed transferred to another account. Duplicate real money accounts are against FT's Terms & Conditions. Negative balances at the end of each week are carried forward by FT.
Unibet - Unibet deduct 10% from the gross rake for the Microgaming network charge. This means that the net rake on which your rakeback is calculated is 90% of gross rake.
Cheques - Players requesting payments by cheque should be advised that their bank may charge them for receiving a cheque from a non US bank. Our cheques are issues in Sterling GBP. We always advise all players to select the most economical method of receiving their rakeback. This is usually via transfer to a poker account.
Paradise Poker - We advise players at Paradise NOT to exchange their FPP (Frequent Player Points) for tournament entries as this conversion is done at €0.25 per point and so each point will cost you €0.075 in rakeback. Paradise also deduct FPPS that you spend in their store from your rake before rakeback calculations are made at the same rate. So you should be sure that the item you are buying is worth the same as the amount of rake that is being deducted.
Fortune Poker - We advise players at Fortune Poker NOT to exchange their FPP (Frequent Player Points) for tournament entries as this conversion is done at €0.25 per point and so each point will cost you €0.075 in rakeback. Fortune also deduct FPPS that you spend in their store from your rake before rakeback calculations are made at the same rate. So you should be sure that the item you are buying is worth the same as the amount of rake that is being deducted.
InterPoker - We advise players at InterPoker NOT to exchange their FPP (Frequent Player Points) for tournament entries as this conversion is done at €0.25 per point and so each point will cost you €0.075 in rakeback. InterPoker also deduct FPPS that you spend in their store from your rake before rakeback calculations are made at the same rate. So you should be sure that the item you are buying is worth the same as the amount of rake that is being deducted.
Poker Heaven - All Poker Heaven players receive FPPs for their game play as a reward for their loyalty. An FPP has no value, it is simply a measure of how PokerHeaven rewards players which can be exchanged for 30% rakeback or gifts, you cannot use the same FPPs that you earn on both rakeback and in the store. If a rakeback player uses his FPPs in exchange for a gift then his rakeback will be reduced dramatically as the value of the points is removed from his rake. We advise players at PokerHeaven NOT to exchange their FPPs (Frequent Player Points) for tournament entries or anything from the store as we do not consider the exchange value for money.
Mansion Poker - Players who are signed up via the EuroPokerDream Rakeback program at Mansion will be unable to use their Mansion Points as they would normally be able to. This is the policy of Mansion poker and is the same for all players across all rakeback affiliates.
William Hill - Players must be due at least £1 in rakeback when weekly payments are made by WH in order to receive any payment. WH does not carry over amounts from week to week
Cake Poker Network Rules - Cake Poker Network does not allow multiple rakeback accounts on their network. If you open a second rakeback account the most recent one may be closed by the network and you will lose any rakeback you have accumulated on that account. However you will still be entitled to enter EuroPokerDream promotions.
