A Rake Too Far: Optimal Platform Pricing Strategy

In a casino, the term äóìrakeäó refers to the commission that the house earns for operating a poker game. With each hand, a small percentage of the pot is scraped off by the dealer, which in essence becomes the äóìrevenueäó for the casino. While casinos use the term äóìrake,äó a plethora of interesting word choices exist which all describe the same thing äóñ keeping a little bit of the revenue for the company that is running the service. Examples include äóìcommission,äó äóìfee,äó äóìtoll,äó äóìtax,äó äóìvigäó or äóìvigorish,äó äóìjuice,äó äóìthe takeäó, and äóìgraftäó (although this last one is typically associated with corruption in politics).
