Slot RTP: Definition of RTP – What does RTP mean?
RTP also known as the Return to Player is the phrase casinos and casino games makers use to describe the long term theoretical expected payback percentage from all wagers on a slot machine, video poker machine, video lottery terminal (VLT), pokies or any other form of gambling with a set calculated house edge.
Using a simple example, if you were to make a thousand one euro bets on a slot machine on with a theoretical Slot RTP of 96.01%, all other things being equal you would expect to get a return of €960.10 in wins from your staked €1,000.
Return To Player is therefore basically the polar opposite of House Edge. The house edge is usually used when referring to live table games and is the mathematical advantage the casino holds over the player.

Knowing your percentages is absolutely key in an online slot players strategy. Why play a slot which has a 10% house edge when you can play a slot which has a 3 or 4% house edge instead. For this reason we are going to be compiling exhaustive lists of RTPs from the leading slot designers. We will be listing these on this page. Making these lists is very time consuming so bear with us while we work our way through making new ones and keeping existing ones up to date! Everyone is always looking for loose slots so we have also listed dozens of the loosest online slots further down this page!
Massive thanks to those slot providers who have been kind enough to send us their information and/or complete lists!
Play ‘n Go controversy: One more reason to only play at a trusted casino: it has come to light that a number of casinos (mainly shoddy Curacao “licensed” casinos) are offering Book of Dead with a lower RTP than the max offered by the provider. Play ‘n Go are now offering different RTP’s for the casinos to pick out. Some casinos are offering the top RTP in the UK but lower RTP for the rest of the world and a lot of casinos are starting to hide the RTP where they can so we can assume they are offering the lowest RTP available to them.
Make sure you check the RTP at the casino of your choice before you play. If it is hidden (ie if it is not showing but other casinos do show it) then do not play this slot here. If the rtp value is significantly lower at one casino then do not play it here. We have been removing a good number of casino listings from our site where we have found them to be changing their RTP’s downwards.
A good example for you… Slots Magic, LeoVegas, Redbet, Winning Room, Play Frank, Dragonara, Cashmio for example have Book of Dead RTP at 96.21% – 96.27% whereas Rizk, Kaboo, High Roller, etc and all their white labels used to have it at 94.25% (probably still do for the UK due to certain regulations stating they must provide all rtp data) but have now removed the RTP altogether for other countries. The SoftSwiss brands have also removed the RTP altogether as well as countless Curacao only clip joints. We understand that this slot has a 89% setting so if they are hiding the RTP does this mean that they are giving you the 89% version?

Highest paying Slots with an RTP of 97.00% and above! Best RTP slots!
For this page we decided to collect together dozens and dozens of the highest paying slots (loosest online slots) which have an RTP of 97.00% or above. This has been a huge amount of work so it is likely there will be some high RTP slots that we have missed from the list. Hopefully though this list will be extensive enough to cover nearly all of your needs!
What we have excluded are slots which have more than 1 RTP setting depending on game play style, bet size or line numbers. Also excluded are slots which the individual casinos can choose from different pre-programmed RTP settings.
Take Care: Please note that there can occasionally be variance in the theoretical return to player based on the number of lines you are playing or the selections you make. The RTP percentages are also calculated over millions of spins rather than hundreds. The data tables should therefore be only taken as a guide.

Return To Player (Slot RTP) Guide
One slot machine or 500 slot machines?
We have already discussed the random number generator and based on years of experience we can take the casinos word that it doesn’t technically matter much which slot you actually play at any given moment (with regards hitting jackpots, having winning or losing runs, etc). You can also check this out yourselves by viewing your game history over a few different slots and checking the game ID’s.
The problem many rookies make is after hitting a big win on one slot, they avoid this slot but use their winnings to play bigger stakes on other slots within the same online casino. Or by using the winnings from one slot to try and chase previous losses on another slot. For all intents and purposes, all individual slots within an online casino can be viewed as one giant slot, just with various different interfaces. Online slots and casinos should never be compared to land based slots and casinos.
Not all online slots are created equally.
Despite what we have just explained, you still need to differentiate between the individual slots within any online casino. While the RNG will generate a winning or losing number for all the slots, the individual payouts can differ greatly.
You can find out the theoretical payout percentages a.k.a. “Return to player” a.k.a. RTP for most slots via one of the menu, help, question mark etc buttons within the slot games themselves.
We are fans of the Marvel Jackpot slots provided by Playtech. We know that a few casino sites are anti-Playtech and anti-Marvel (the cynic in us says this may well be because Playtech casinos generate very little revenue for affiliates) but as with any form of gambling you need to be aware of what you are doing (We have discussed the Marvel slots in more detail in a later article).
Playtech casinos all list the same RTP for a particular slot, even if they are not even part of the same casino chain. And Playtech makes these RTPs very easy to find and compare. Simply click on “help” within any Playtech slot and you will have a pop-up window where you can find details about all the slots on offer at that casino. (For Net|Ent slots, another major player in the online casino game, you click on the question mark to find the relevant information. On netent.com you can even practice pretty much all of their slots portfolio).
Progressive jackpots usually have lower RTPs to non-jackpot slots because a small percentage of every spin is set aside for the jackpot(s).
Here then are the RTPs from a few popular Playtech slots: Iron Man 2 – 25 Lines (95.98%), Iron Man 2 – 50 Lines (92.31%), Hulk – 50 Lines (91%), Everybody’s Jackpot (94.01%), Desert Treasure (97.05%). So all things being equal (if the slot pays exactly the RTP during the test), playing 5000 spins at €1.00 you could expect to lose €450 on Hulk 50 Lines but only lose €147.50 on Desert Treasure.
Another valuable note is that if there are two variants of a Playtech Marvel Jackpot machine, it appears that the 50 line version always has a far lower payout percentage than the 20 or 25 line version .
Our rule is very simple: “Always check the RTPs before playing any slot”.
Online Slots RTP Hall of Fame
Unlike land based casinos, the online casino is able to offer the punter (you and me) far better return to player percentages due to the lower overheads they face. Before we continue we will put this into perspective by showing you a little info graphic from USA land based casinos:
Give yourself the best chance of beating the slots
If you want to have the best chance of winning at online slots, you need to take a few essential steps:
First of all, you need to understand what the Return To Player (RTP) percentage is of a slot machine. The RTP is the term that online casinos use to describe the percentage of all the wagered money a slot machine will pay back to the player over time. In other words, how much of the money that is put in, is given back to player? We have covered this in detail in other articles on Yes No Casino but here’s a quick reminder:
For example, if the RTP of a slot is 94%, you can expect to get £94 back for every £100 that you put in. The RTP is always calculated over the long term so all variance (highs and lows) is evened out.
The second step is to check to RTP of the slot to find out how well it rates on the RTP scale:
- 90.99% or less = absolutely terrible RTP
- between 91.00% and 92.99% = very poor RTP
- between 93.00% and 93.99% = poor RTP
- between 94.00% and 94.99% = acceptable RTP
- between 95.00% and 96.99% = good RTP
- between 97.00% and 97.99% = very good RTP
- between 98.00% and 98.49 = superb RTP
- higher than 98.50% = truly un-frikkin-believable RTP
The higher the RTP, the more favourable the odds are for you as a player and the bigger the chance that you will actually win on that particular slot.
How can you check the RTP of slots?
Most slots have the RTP listed in their games rules or pay-tables. Sometimes you have to look for it, but most software providers are happy to provide the RTP. If you cannot find the RTP, we advise you to consider playing a different slot. We have provided you some good resources on this page as well (page opens in new window/tab): RTP data
Which slots guarantee a profit?
Unfortunately, there are no slots that will guarantee that you will always win. The RTP would have to be higher than 100% and that would mean the online casino would be bankrupt within a few days. The good news however, is that there is a number of online slots that has a RTP that is very close to 100%.
And remember: the closer the RTP comes to 100%, the better odds you have of actually beating the casino.
Using RTP to your advantage on a cashable casino bonus
Here’s a simple scenario for you. You deposit €100 and receive a 100% cashable casino bonus. Your wagering requirements are 35x Bonus (using 21 Prive Casino as an example). That means you have to play through €3,500 before you can cash out. You decide to play “Good Girl, Bad Girl” by Betsoft which has an RTP of 97.80%. You select €1.00 per spin and play for 3,500 spins. If the slot gives you exactly 97.80 back then for every 100 spins you lose €2.20. Now if we extrapolate that out over the full wagering requirements you will be left with €123 which is a profit of €23. If you had chosen to play “Mega Joker” from NetEnt you would have €65 profit but if you had decided to play “Tomb Raider II” from Microgaming you would have made a loss of €66.95.
Obviously this example is assuming everything plays exactly according to RTP and such a simple example would probably be frowned upon by some casinos but the point is valid that choosing carefully which slots to play has a serious impact on your potential fortunes.
Interesting facts about RTP
Big name or franchised slots as a rule have a low Return To Player. Game developers have to pay big sums of money to be able to use the name and images for franchised titles such as The Terminator, Jurrasic Park or The Marvel range of jackpot slots from Playtech. These fees have to come from somewhere, so in the end the player pays for them through a lower RTP.
In our top 15 list of Highest Paying Slots, you will mainly find Netent, Thunderkick and (to a lesser extent) Microgaming titles. No Nextgen, WMS, Playtech, Ballys or Yggdrasil slots had a high enough RTP to make the top 15 list.
Progressives slots generally have the lowest RTP percentages, as that percentage includes all the big progressive jackpot amounts, so the RTP on the base game is significantly lower. If you want to get some good play time, avoid progressive slots with particularly low RTP percentages. There are two exceptions to this rule: 1. when the progressive is at an all time high or 2. if you are playing with bonus money.
The future of the online slot RTP?
There are two companies who are hopefully setting a bit of a trend, and that is towards transparency, clarity and consistency in the Return To Player percentages. Both companies set all their slots to the exact same RTP. You know exactly what you are going to get. We would love all slot development companies to follow suit rather than having the confusion of a different RTP for each and every slot.
All Amatic slots have an RTP of 96.00%
All Endorphina slots have an RTP of 96.00%
In an ideal world we have worked out that our perfect RTP (fair to both developers, casinos and players) would be 96.50% for all non jackpot slots and 95.50% base game RTP for progressive jackpot slots with the missing 1% contributing towards the progressive jackpot. The 1% model is how the Playtech Marvel jackpots work and it is a tried and trusted model (though the individual slot RTP varies greatly between the Marvel slots).
If one of the really big slot studios adopts this model (we have suggested this to Playtech already) then we expect the ball to really start rolling and be adopted by the others. For Playtech it would require a huge leap of faith as a great many of their slots are tighter than a ducks
arse hind quarters. For NetEnt it would see some RTP’s being lowered whilst some are raised. For others it would require a slight raise on all slots.
Update: We have just heard that Thunderkick are now also moving towards a 96% standard RTP and are slowly moving some of their existing titles to this new RTP. If you are playing a Thunderkick slot then check the RTP before playing as there’s a good chance you are playing the older, higher paying version.
30 28 of the highest paying online slots in more detail
After comparing pay out percentages of thousands of different slots, we have compiled this list of 28 of the highest paying slots that you can play in an online casino. This list is not the be all and end all and an exact top 28 but it is pretty close!
1. Mega Joker (NetEnt): 99.00%
Mega Joker is an old school type of slot without too many of the flashy features we have come to expect from video slots, however with such a huge RTP of 99% it has to be included in this roundup. There’s not much you can do by way of strategy on this slot with only 2 stake sizes in the main base game, and this can be a really really nasty slot emptying your bank balance pretty quickly. But equally it has to go the other way and you can run into very nice winning streaks.
2. Cosmic Quest II Mystery Planets (Rival): 98.95%
Rival slots are a lot of fun and this bright and colourful slot is no exception, especially considering the mammoth RTP on offer here. This is the follow up to Cosmic Quest I Mission Control (which by the way has a much lower RTP) and while the RTP promises to be kind to you, this slot can actually be a really nasty bugger. You are looking at long streaks of getting nothing much in return, even free spins often paying nothing much. But occasionally it spins in a hefty feature win or a bunch of spaceship wilds together during base play and all suddenly feels well again in the universe!
3. Chess Mate (MultiSlot): 98.70%
MultiSlot are a very small name casino game provider with a reasonable sized portfolio of slots and casino games. The slots though are in general very basic. The graphics are fine but there’s not much by way of fancy animations or exciting bonus games. Most feature simple free spins or a sort of pick me bonus. The major thing about MultiSlot though is their enormous RTPs. What these slots lack in excitement they more than make up in value for money and there are a lot of slot connoisseurs who really seek out the highest paying MultiSlot games for their strategy sessions.
Chess Mate being the highest paying of their slots is the only one to make it into our list here but if you visit our massive RTP database you will find a whole host of MultiSlot slots that are extremely high in value. There’s at least 8 with an RTP of 98% or more!!!
4. 1429 Uncharted Seas (Thunderkick): 98.6%
In fourth place (well 5th actually but we’ve decided not to list Jackpot 6000 from NetEnt as it is along the same lines as the number 1 in this list) is a great slot from Thunderkick. This somewhat strange Swedish pokie developer makes some of the quirkiest and best slots on the UK gaming market.
1429 Uncharted Seas has a sea exploration theme and looks absolutely gorgeous. Trigger the feature and you will get free spins with expanding wilds and big pays. 1429 Uncharted Seas is a superb slot title.
5. Ragnarok (Genesis Gaming): 98.00%
Ragnarok is a Genesis Gaming slot you will find under the hood of Microgaming casinos. It has an exceptional 98% RTP so of course it is worth checking out. We are not big fans personally as it feels a bit bland and clunky and the autoplay feature only goes up to 25 spins a time. But that’s down to personal taste so don’t be put off by that, have a little play yourselves in demo mode and see what you think.
6. Blood Suckers (NetEnt): 98.00%
Blood Suckers is the second of many Netent slots in our top 25 list. Blood Suckers has a superb RTP of 98%. This 25 win line slot with a romantic vampire theme, is one of Netent’s most popular slots.
The game play is fast and fun and there are two different bonus features: a free spins bonus and a pick em bonus where you open coffins and kill vampires for big credit wins.
6. Jokerizer (Yggdrasil Gaming): 98.00%
A lot of Yggdrasil Gaming slots are very much a “cup of tea” thing. It’s not my cup of tea but I know many online casino fans love their slots. This slot does look great and plays fast and smooth so we have no complaints thee at all. With a very healthy 98% RTP this is one to try out for yourself and see if it is your cuppa or not!
7. Future Fortunes (Rival): 98.00%
Future Fortunes is a simple but very effective Rival slot with a mystic theme featuring Tarot Cards, an oracle, a magic 8 ball, the all seeing eye (the eye in the pyramid), etc. With free spins and a tarot card bonus round there’s enough entertainment here but it is the 98% rtp that is the standout feature. Especially for USA slot players this is definitely a slot to dig out and spend some time with!
Rival’s Rock On slot also shares the same outstanding RTP of 98.00%
8. Reel Crime Art Heist (Rival): 97.97%
Doo-Wop Daddy-O by Rival has an RTP of 97.99% but I decided to feature Reel Crime Art Heist as it is a brilliant example of Rivals interactive iSlots. This is a slot game which actually has a number of different slots and mini games in it and you proceed along a path doing different challenges in different areas as you go. These iSlots are hugely enjoyable whilst also being frustrating if you get caught before completing the entire mission.
I think that interactive slots are going to become more and more popular once some of the other slot makers start taking notice. I suppose something like Battlestar Galactica from Microgaming could be considered an iSlot though not on the same level of Rivals iSlots.
9. Kitty Ca$h (1×2 Gaming): 97.90%
1×2 Gaming are better known for their virtual sports than their online slots. These are sadly very basic indeed though the graphics are usually pretty nice to look at. Kitty Ca$h is worth a look however as it could be one to help you break a losing streak or try and use it to beat the casino?
10. Kings of Chicago (NetEnt): 97.80%
Kings of Chicago is a unique slot from Netent that combines video poker with a regular slot machine.
Instead of traditional slot symbols there are card symbols on the reels. Landing winning poker combinations will give players great payouts. Jokers pay out double and there is an exciting free spins feature are also exciting elements of this somewhat lesser known 5 win line game.
11. Good Girl, Bad Girl (Betsoft): 97.80%
One of the most recognisable Betsoft slots and the highest paying to boot. This is a stunning looking and sounding 3d slot which is feature packed. If you have never played it or are not a fan of Betsofts slots3 series then just give this one a chance and I am sure you will love it. It is a lot of fun and being good value for money really makes it one to add to your favourites.
12. Aladdin’s Lamp (Cryptlogic): 97.70%
Aladdin’s Lamp has an RTP of at least 97.70% and a maximum of 98.00%. Reel in the cash, also by Cryptlogic comes in two flavours, one with a 94.5% rtp and the other with a 98.00% rtp so you have to be careful which you go with. These Cryptlogic slots are very very basic indeed, very old school and hard to find these days. Worth a few spins due to their house edge if you do find them though.
13. Starmania (NextGen): 97.70%
You might be thinking Starmania is the NextGen clone of NetEnt’s classic Starburst. Yes it has 10 win lines, pays both ways, it has similarities in the look and the name. But it is a whole different ball game. There is a free spins bonus round for a start, and the house edge is much nicer on Starmania. So don’t get the two confused and give this one a chance.
14. Magicious (Thunderkick): 97.60%
Magicious is a fun and straightforward slot with 10 win lines, expanding wilds that stay sticky for one turn and frantic game play.
It is basically a faster and prettier version of Starburst with a much higher return to player: a very impressive 97.6%. A great slot for getting some fast big wins and then getting out. Quite frankly once you have found this slot I don’t think there’s any reason to go back to Starburst. This pays better but it also has so much charm too.
15. Gypsy Rose (Betsoft): 97.60%
I could have listed one of 3 slots by Betsoft at 97.60% – Who Spunit and Sugar Pop being the other two. But I’ve gone with Gypsy Rose just because I like it a lot. Awesome graphics and animations as you have come to know and love from Betsoft and with loads of wilds and bonus features. It is a whole heck of a lot of fun.
16. Devil’s Delight (Netent): 97.60%
Devil’s Delight is a blazing hot slot from Netent that features some real shady characters: monsters, the devil and the grim reaper among others. The main bonus, that can pay out monstrous amounts, is a play till you win type bonus.
The longer you play, the the closer you will get to that lucrative Sin Spins bonus. Three or more Zodiac symbols will trigger the free spins bonus and the expanding wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4 can pay out huge wins in the base game. Play Devil’s Delight now, if you dare.
17. Esqueleto Explosivo (Thunderkick): 97.60%
The totally absurd and wacky Mexican themed Esqueleto Explosivo by Thunderkick is a one of the best online slots around. Everything revolves around exploding skeleton heads, increasing multipliers and mucho, mucho fun.
The Golden Elvis symbols, complete with cool sunglasses, are wild and will help you to get those huge multipliers of up to 32x!
Without a doubt, one of our favourite slots.
18. Retro Reels Extreme Heat (Microgaming): 97.50%
Sometimes it is nice to play an old fashioned looking online slot and with such a high RTP, Retro Reels is a very good choice. It looks old school and the individual reel re-spin feature really adds to that feel and vibe.
19. Hot Ink (Microgaming): 97.50%
On the other end of the scale from Microgaming is Hot Ink also with this top rtp. Hot Ink is quite unique in that it actually has 1024 ways to win! Not just 243 but a full 5 by 4 reels with any ways pays. Definitely something to look out for.
20. Simsalabim (NetEnt): 97.50%
We just love a good magic show. It is great to be amazed and tricked into thinking things that we know are not true. Rest assured: there is no trickery involved with the RTP percentage of Simsalabim.
The Magic-themed Simsalabim has lots to offer: several great bonus features, free spins at 3x multiplier and scattered pay outs of up to 200x your bet.
The pay out percentage is just as great at 97.5%.
21. Supernova (Quickspin): 97.50%
This looks to be the first Quickspin slot on our list, with a slightly higher rtp than another Quickspin slot Big Bad Wold which comes in at 97.35%. Quickspin is a really cool and unique slot in that it has a 3 by 3 reels board with 27 ways to win (3 to the power of 3) alongside two separate multiplier reels which activate if you have won a prize on the first set of reels. This is a fun little distraction of a slot which plays and pays well and is instantly recognisable. The variance is pretty low though so ideal for beginners and casual players.
22. Bork The Berserker (Thunderkick): 97.30%
Bork the Berserker is a visually stunning slot with a very high RTP of 97,3% from those fine developers at Thunderkick.
Bork the Berzerker features expanding wilds and free spins in the bonus, beautiful graphics and a great sound track. The blood thirsty Bork the Berzerker is looking to win back his girlfriend and will not rest until all those pesky monsters are beaten and your pockets are filled. Highly recommended!
23. Birds On A Wire (Thunderkick): 97.20%
The cartoon style Birds on a wire slot by Thunderkick is full of small details and little surprises. Watch how the electricity wires slightly tremble when the birds land on them. And who or what is in those mystery bonus boxes?
With every spin new birds land on the win lines and “disappear” with every winning combination. Earn free spins with high multipliers and get the infinity spin at the end of the bonus round: spin the reels until you win!
24. Breakaway (Microgaming): 97.00%
An Ice Hockey themed slot with stacked avalanche symbols, a free spins bonus and plenty of wilds. The bonus game can be extremely profitable with this Microgaming slot. Microgaming have also released the same slot game engine in various other sports including Cricket Star, Football Star, Rugby Star and Basketball Star so you can pick and choose which version of this slot you prefer playing..
25. Fruit Warp (Thunderkick): 97.00%
Yet another Thunderkick slot with a very high RTP and unique game play. Land 5 or more fruit symbols and you will be awarded with a very exiting bonus feature with free spins, multipliers and those all important life savers! his slot is truly genius and a barrel of laughs.
26. Steam Tower (NetEnt): 97.00%
Steam Tower is one of Netent’s most popular new slots with a beautiful Steam Punk theme. The bonus game hits very frequently and will award you with lots of free spins, re-triggers, increasing multipliers and a big pay out (66.6x stake) if you reach the top and save the girl. The base game can be very tight but it has to because the free spins feature can come at you thick and fast!
27. Barber Shop (Thunderkick): 97.00%
Barber Shop by Thunderkick is a video slot that has the same mechanics as Netent’s Jack Hammer series. Whenever you get a winning combination you go into re-spin mode: winning symbols become sticky and as long as you keep getting new winning combinations, you get extra re-spins. The biggest difference between Barber Shop and Jack Hammer however is the RTP: Barber shop’s RTP of 97.0% is significantly higher.
28. Dazzle Me (NetEnt): 96.90%
Dazzle Me is a very popular Netent slot with a somewhat unorthodox 5 reel set up with 76 win lines. It features stacked symbols, identical reels and a free spins bonus. The RTP is a very respectable 96.9%
Edit. Alaxe in Zombieland (Microgaming):
Zombies are all the rage of the past years and with good reason. Zombies are hip, popular and somewhat scary.
The number one spot in this top 10 list is reserved for a Zombie themed slot called Alaxe in Zombieland. This very entertaining title from Microgaming has an extremely high RTP of 98.9%. Besides this great return to player percentage, Alaxe in Zombieland features beautiful graphics, exiting bonus games and lots of little surprises.
Edit. Nemo’s Voyage (Williams Interactive):
Nemo’s Voyage is one of WMS’ (Williams Interactive) less well known online slots, but with a RTP this high it should be one of the more popular ones. The graphics may be slightly dated by today’s standards but it plays smoothly and the game play is surprisingly refreshing. I’ll be honest, I’ve not mastered this one yet. But that’s part of its charm, getting to learn the unique game play.
EDIT: The RTP is actually 95.01% according to new sources as opposed to the 99% claimed by Video Slots Casino where we took the original data from.
