Reasons To Play EU Licensed Poker Rooms:
Tax Free Poker – We at Rakeback Safe are not experts in this field, but we know that most EU citizens are not taxed on money won from a Poker Room with a EU license.

Financial Security – EU licensed rooms will be much more financial secure than rooms in other areas. EU License Poker Rooms must place all Players funds in seperate bank accounts, they have high anti-money laundering standards and much more to obtain their EU Gambling License.
It has been proven before that nothing is 100% safe, not even a EU license, however it´s a good rule of thumb to play on Poker Room´s with EU License, especially for tax reasons.

We believe Arjel approves existing poker sites, if they already have another license. We don´t think Arjel look at the financial situation, since Fulltilt had a license, it looks like this is just a tax machine ! Several sites have pulled out of the french market since taxes and fees are simply to high to make a profit in the french market.
We don´t believe an Arjel license from France is worth anything regarding safety of a poker site. This is just a tax machine!
There are no requirements for companies to operate, or have servers in Italy, and as far as we know AAMS it should not be so difficult to get a license, it looks like this is also just a tax machine ! But we are told that taxes and fees are cheaper in Italy compared to France with very similar rules.
We don´t believe the Italian Gaming Authority AAMS is worth anything regarding safety of a website. This is a pure tax machine!
