RTP (Return to Player)
Return to Player is abbreviated as RTP. This is shown in the form of a percentage and shows how much a certain slot or game pays out over a long period of time. This percentage shows a player how much of an edge a casino has over the player. Typically most slot machines will have a RTP between 94% and 99%.
RTP is calculated by the following formula:
RTP = (Total paid to players) / (Total spent by players)
So in theory if a slot game has a RTP of 95% and the players spent a total of £1,000. This slot machine will pay out £950. Leaving the casino with £50 profit. It’s important to note that RTP is based on every player playing the same slot, and is calculated over thousands of spins and a long period of time.
This percentage does not indicate that a player will get 95% back from every session of the game. And sometimes a player will win over the RTP, meaning that they have profited from the game.
