Return to player is an important element in slot games, and indeed in other casino games. It is usually seen as RTP and is expressed as a percentage. It determines the average return a player can expect from a game over a long period of play.
For instance, an RTP of 98% is far better than an RTP of 92%. The remaining percentage that would take the figure to 100% is the amount a casino will retain for offering the game and its services. The player RTP of 98% means the casino takes a 2% cut from all the monies received on that game. The RTP of 92% means the casino takes a bigger cut of 8%.
The idea is always to choose games with a high RTP – as high as possible. While you can never determine how much or little you might win from a spin, a game, or a deal of the cards, you can get a better idea of what you might expect. Playing over a longer period will see you get closer to the RTP displayed for that game. Of course, there is always the chance you could come away with a loss, or with a bigger prize that means you’ve profited from that game.
