WINNER: partypoker

Grinders are playing on a regular basis and are basically rake machines.
So the fact that partypoker has such a good rakeback system is a huge plus in this category.
There aren't many poker operators that offer this in 2020 - or even as much as 20-40% like Party does.
There are always mid to higher-stake tables available, and good and stable traffic round the clock.
The software also supports HUDs which makes it easier to multi-table. This aspect of the software has also
improved as of late which pushed it further up the list for the Best Operator for Grinders award.

Nominees: Best Poker Operator for Grinders


partypoker VIP club

The party network (partypoker, Coral and Ladbrokes) is arguably one of the best for grinders and professional players. The network offers 20% rakeback for all players and this can go up to 40% for players that rake at least $1.2k per week. These are excellent deals for active players and the party network has ample mid- to high stakes action to ensure, grinders always find enough tables.


PokerStars Software

PokerStars is still the biggest poker site in terms of real money players, games and variants offered. No question, the PokerStars VIP system has gone down the drain over the past years and the reward chests are rarely worthwhile. But the market leader still offers superb value with the best game selection and the most professional software for multi-tabling grinders.

William Hill

William Hill VIP Club

William Hill is one of the biggest skins of the iPoker network and the skin that offers one of the best and most accessible VIP reward programs for regular and active players. Alongside weekly twister races which pay out over €50k each month William Hill also has a players club which is worth a bit over 27% rakeback for players that accumulate €1,200 rake per month.
