RTP concept history
Let’s simply start with an explanation of the English expression “Return To Player”: three little words that may seem technical or complicated, but in the end they are not and that will be very useful to you, believe us! In short, the RTP will help you to select your games or online casinos intelligently. It will allow you, for example, to know what the return on investment of a specific gambling game is. A concrete example? If a game has an RTP of 96%, it simply means that if you bet 100 $, the maximum payout you can get is 96 $. So, as you can see, the higher the RTP, the higher your winnings will be.
Now, if the online casino doesn’t give you the percentage of your RTP, you can calculate it from the percentage that comes home. For example, if the casino has an advantage of 2.7%, your RTP = 1-2.7%, or 97.3%.
Online casinos often publish RTP percentages for their slots and table games. We’re going to let you in on a little confidence, but let’s keep it between us if you don’t mind. Most online casinos do this to convince players of the fairness of their software and to allow them to compare their offerings with those of other competitors. You will understand that high RTPs are synonymous with “scams” and low RTPs are indicators of difficult, if not impossible, winnings. To give you an idea, the average is between 75 and 99 for slot machines and table games. You should also be aware that the reported RTP, whether true or not, is often an average, which means that it will vary. It is important not to play blindly and to have even a small idea of the winnings you can expect when playing a particular game!
