Get Paid to Play Online Poker

What is online propping?

Poker Props are players who are hired by poker rooms to start and save games. Prop Teams matches rooms that need games with players who are willing to follow some basic rules in exchange for being compensated by the room. Players do not have to follow any set schedule, can play as little or as often as they like each week, and are generally paid directly into their account at the room every week.

First off, rakeback generally pays much less than propping. After that, the only difference is that props have to follow some simple rules and work with a team, whereas players on rake back generally play as they like.
