The first part of our analysis used results from the first 4 days of the promotion and future calculations all assumed continuous play over the final 10-day period.


By comparing the final results to our estimates above for the first four days, we can see how gameplay and competition changed towards the end of the race.


First place was secured by generating €8,025 in rake during the first 4 days of the promotion period.  Our predictions saw that if the palyer had continued playing at the same pace, calculations showed us that a total cashback of 65.5% would have been obtainable.

 

 Also, we expected that the daily amount of rake generated would have been around €2,006. In comparison to the final results, it is quite interesting to see that gameplay, dedication fell off over the next 10 days, making first place daily rake generated €1,457.

 

This €600 daily difference was not an uncommon occurence as for the whole leaderboard showed a decrease in performance. If we have a look at the 100th place, we can see that the player ended up generating €119 daily rake, compared to €151, predicted in the previous article.


Although there was a downturn in gameplay across the board, this had a positive effect on the cashback percentages, which turned out to offer a higher return for less gameplay than predicted by Rakerace.com.

 

Let’s now look at an average player to see how their performance varied in the final results.


Average Player


An average player in the first 4 days of the competition was able to achieve around €267 rake per day, but from the final results a player only managed to generate €178 per day for the €600 prize average. 

 

Taking this into consideration, if an average player would have had the stamina to maintain the same gameplay from the results of the first 4 days, the outcome would have definitely been a greater return.

Average cashback


Cashback percentages for an average player came to the results of a 5% increase. This again is an indication that the performance of the competition throughout the 10-day conclusion of the competition fell off.

 

If a player is fierce and patient enough to keep up his/her performance during the whole month, significant increases in leaderboard ranks can be expected.


Conclusion


In conclusion, from the information that has been gathered we can see that stamina play s a big part in these types of competitions.


At the kick-off of competitions of this type, it is a common occurence to see players eager and willing to play extreme to make their mark on the leaderboard.

 

But, as we can see from these results and past ones, the initial stamina and enthusiasm just seem to die off towards the middle of the month. Even though the big rakers always take the lead quickly with ridiculously large amounts of rake generated, it is only a matter of time that they get comfortable and slack off.

 

This is the premium time for an average player to make their move and significant gains can be achieved on the leaderboard for greater dedication.

 


If a player took into consideration our predictions in the first analysis and kept up his/her performance for the rest of the month, the player would have received even greater return than predicted by Rakerace.com.

 

To sum this up, by setting a goal on the amount of VIP Points to be gathered one day and keeping to this goal, a player can easily make the most out of these promotions and sometimes even win bigger than predicted.
