Slots with the Best Pay-out Percentages

Timothy Upton.
January 2019

The fact that online slots are very popular is undisputed. There are statistics which show that slots are the most popular category of online games and the fact that there have been hundreds of online slots that were developed so far is another testament to this. There is a large rivalry between online casinos and all operators try to attract as many new players as possible. In order to do that, online casinos employ different tactics. Since we already know that slots are very popular with players, it is not surprising that one of the most popular methods used by online casinos is offering Free Spins on all or selected available slot games. The Free Spins may be offered after the first deposit, or even before that, as a No Deposit Bonus.

RTP Matters

Since there are hundreds of different slot games from various developers, players often can't decide which slots are worth giving a try. One of the key factors that determines who good a slot game is, is the RTP, or the pay-out rate. The return to player (RTP) percentage of a game signifies the proportion of the amount wagered on that game that is returned to the players as winnings. Basically, if a game has an RTP of 95%, it means that out of every $100 wagered on that game, $95 are returned as winnings. You don't have to be an expert to realise that the higher the RTP is, the more favourable the game is for the players. Below are the top 5 games with highest RTP rates.

Wasabi San

Wasabi San is a Japanese-themed online slot developed by Microgaming. The game features 5 reels and 15 pay-lines. Each of the symbols is connected to Japanese cuisine, there's a multitude of dishes and different fish, as well as male and female characters and a little bonsai tree. The green chef is the wild symbol. The game has two bonus features - Free Spins and Fish Market Bonus. The game has some nice animations, the graphics and the sound effects are great and 100% authentic. This game has 96.56% RTP.



Dead or Alive

Dead or Alive is a NetEnt slot game, with 5 reels and 9 pay-lines. Players can win up to 29 Free Spins on this game. This game has a Wild West theme and it can be played with as little as 1 cent per pay-line, which makes the minimum bet a total of $0.09, whereas the maximum is $2 per pay-line. The list of symbols includes famous Wild West outlaws such as Jesse James and Billy the Kid. The maximum amount that can be won during the Free Spins round is $54,000. This game has a 97% pay-out.



Ooh Aah Dracula

Ooh Aah Dracula, as the name clearly suggests, is a slot game that has a Dracula theme. It was developed by Barcrest and it has a great gameplay, spiced up with a Free Spins Bonus, as well as a special Graveyard Bonus. The symbols are cartoony in order to make the game look a bit gentler and carefree. The developers did a great job with the symbols here as even the card symbols have been styled in a way that is in accordance with the theme. The 10 pay-lines aren't selectable and the minimum bet is 1c per line, so that makes a total of 10c per spin. But you can also wager as much as $500 if you feel like it. The RTP is an amazing 99%.

Mega Joker Jackpot

Mega Joker Jackpot is another game which has an impressive 99% RTP. They say that progressive jackpot games usually don't feature pay-out rates that are that high, but this NetEnt slot certainly beaks that rule. The game is pretty old school, it has only three reels and 5 pay-lines which can be played for 10c per line. The progressive jackpot amount isn't very high, but the jackpot itself is quite frequent. This game offers two things slot players really love - a progressive jackpot and a very high RTP.



Goblin's Cave

The game with the highest RTP is Playtech's Goblin's Cave. This is a pretty simple game with only 3 reels and 3 pay-lines. It doesn't have any bonus offers and special features and the maximum jackpot amount is 150 coins. That might seem a bit humble, but this game boasts a staggering pay-out rate of 99.3%. Only $7 out of a total $1,000 will not be returned as winnings. This game sets the bar pretty high when it comes to RTP.
