What Is Return To Player?

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.
