5 Slots with the Best Return to Player Pay-out Percentages
In order to be able to come away with a profit when
playing online casino games, you'll need to select
the games you play carefully. Some say that playing
casino games, slots in particular is all about luck.
While it is true that playing slots requires no skills
and that wins and jackpots are triggered randomly,
it is not true that players can't improve their chances.
First you'll need to select a better casino. Playing
at a casino which offers lower fees, better games
and hassle free deposits and withdrawals is certainly
better for you. If you plan on playing casino games
on your mobile device, then you should be looking
for a casino with a solid mobile offer. Check
out this Australian mobile casino guide.
Importance of RTP
Another thing that is crucial is the return to player
(RTP) percentage, also called pay-out rate. The RTP
is given as a percentage and it is available both
for a casino as whole where the average for all their
games is taken and for individual games. The pay-out
rates of different slot games may vary significantly.
Some games may have RTP rates as high as 99%, or perhaps
even higher, but some games may even have percentages
lower than 90%. Take out the RTP from 100% and you
get the house edge. The house edge shows the advantage
of the house against the players, so generally it'd
be in your advantage to lower the house edge. When
playing slots, you can do so by choosing games with
higher RTPs. Here are the games which have the lowest
Eggstravaganza is a fun, Easter-themed slot game
that was developed by Rival, a company that has delivered
over 200 casino games. The game features 3 reels and
only one pay-line, which makes it quite different
from the standard 5-reel, multiple pay-line slots
we usually see these days. The symbols are, understandably,
very Easter-y, including a chocolate rabbit, eggs,
a bonnet, an Easter Bunny and a small chick. The largest
pay-out is 2500 times your stake and there's one bonus
feature. Unfortunately, this otherwise quite interesting
game has a very low RTP at 89.49%.
Next we have a progressive jackpot slot that was
developed by Microgaming. Major Millions is a very
popular progressive jackpot game that has been around
quite a while. It is a five reel game with fifteen
pay-lines and the theme is military. Some of the symbols
are medals, documents, tank, plane, warship and of
course, the major. There's a wild symbol which is
the logo of the game and a scatter symbol represented
by a large explosion. Few people have hit a progressive
jackpot higher than U$D1m, which is a clearly one
of the reasons why the game is so popular. Major Millions
has an RTP of 89.37%.
Best of Luck
Best of Luck is another Rival casino game. It features
a steam punk theme with retro graphics and interesting
patterns. The buttons are placed below the reels,
on a quite unusual pink background. Most of the icons
are items that were considered to be lucky charms
in Victorian times, such as rabbit's foot, cat, horseshoe
and gems. It can be played with as little as one cent
and up to $50 per spin. There are 20 pay-lines across
5 reels. The maximum jackpot is 100,000 coins, or
a total of $25,000 in cash. It is an interesting and
playable game, but the RTP is only 89.08%.
Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive
jackpots have lower RTPs. Players are drawn to
them anyways, and smaller pay-out rate is just a price
most people are willing to pay for the chance of participating
in the competition for a very hefty jackpot. Players
who Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive compete for the massive
Mega Moolah Mega Jackpot which can be won by players
who play this game and several other which contain
'Mega Moolah' in the title. The largest Mega Jackpot
won ever was above £13 million, so the popularity
of all the games that are part of the Mega Moolah
series is quite understandable. The Mega Moolah 5
Reel Drive though has an RTP of only 88.02%.
Win Mill is a slot game with quite an unusual theme-
windmill, as you might've guessed. It was developed
by Rival and the introductory video starts with a
man, probably Dutch, who puts the sails onto an otherwise
unfinished windmill building. The game has 3 reels
and five pay-lines. The graphics are pretty alright
and you'll see the miller's wife and the miller on
both sides of the reels. The reels spin in a quite
uncommon way. The highest jackpot that can be won
is 5000 the line bet and all the symbols have to do
with the theme, there's a tulip, clogs and Edam cheese,
among the other. The RTP is a meagre 85.88%.
