I dont know why people think the sites are rigged. there is no advantage for the company to do so, and oh yeah ITS ILLEGAL !!!!
The site might not care who wins or loss but they sure rig the cards being dealt.
As you said they make money off the rake so if everytime 3-5 players see a flop and they all catch something either a pair or a draw its an action flop triggering most players to bet or call. Then when the player with the worst hand pulls a river to win everyone thinks that the cards will come on the river so they keep calling with nothing on the following hands.
That way the trake gets bigger.
Think about it, how many action flops you get in a real game and how many you get online?
