All players at Ladbrokes have a so called rating. When you win games, your rating goes up. When you lose games, your rating goes down. If you beat an opponent that has a higher rating than you do, it will have a bigger influence on your rating compared to beating a player that's rated lower than you are. Look out though: if a player with a higher rating loses against you on purpose, you will be removed from the game immediately and you can never return to Ladbrokes again.

The winner of a match pays for the rake/commission of both players. The rake structure is as follows:
At a single match:
Up to $ 50: rake is 2.5%
Between $100 and $200: rake is 1.5%
Over $200: rake is 1.25%
At a serial match, the rake is charged over the total prize money plus 0.125% for every extra point in more than 1 game. The winner pays for both players, and maxed at 11 points (1.25%).
When competing in tournaments, you don't pay a rake. Instead, you pay a small portion of the buy-in, which is usually around 10%.
Ladbrokes has some of the lowest rakes in the online backgammon industry, if not the lowest.
