How does a poker room calculate how much rake I will get back?

First, the room comes up with how much money they actually have made off of you. Usually the room calls this Monthly Gross Revenue (MGR) or Net Revenue. To get this amount most rooms subtract any bonuses earned during the month. The room then gets the MGR/Net Revenue by dividing the amount of rake taken out of all the games you were dealt cards in, and dividing it by the number of players dealt in. There are some poker rooms use that use what can be described as contributed rake, where you must participate in the pot to have rakeback credited. Please check the individual page on TakeTheRakeBack.com for the poker room you are interested in to find out more.

Can I get rakeback from a poker room where I already have an account?

No, what you can do instead is to see if any of the other skins (if there are any) offers rakeback and then sign-up for a rakeback deal via them.
