Limits are offered from as low as $0.05/$0.10 to as high as $75/$150, across a wide variety of game styles.
The rake is an industry standard 5% capped at $3, however there is terrific value at lower limits - for example, the smallest $0.05/$0.10 game has a maximum rake of 6 cents, up to the $1/$2 games which are capped at $1.25.
