There are a couple of ways online poker sites can make money. The first way would be a cut they take from a pot, which is commonly known as a rake. It can average around 5%, usually capped at $3, depends on how high or low the stakes are. Next way would be by charging fees when a poker site holds a tournament. You need to pay a fee to join. The fee structure usually amounts to 10% of the buy-in.
