Playing online slots is arguably the most popular form of casino entertainment. Yet, even complete beginners know that not all games are equally rewarding. The magical number called RTP is the key to determining goodies from the baddies, games that are rewarding from those that are not. But how does one exactly do that? We consulted Anna Rosak (read her bio here), a digital marketing expert who built a successful career in the online gaming industry, to tell the secrets of the trade.
“To put it simply, RTP is the rate that tells you how much the slot machine will return to players over time. So, if you have a casino with an RTP of 96%, that means it will return $96 on every 100 played”, she explains and warns, “However, keep in mind that not every player gets that rate back. RTP is a general number, the average calculated on thousands, if not millions, of hands played.”
In her opinion, players should also focus on other elements within the game, such as volatility and bonus features. Rosak says that games rich in features, such as Joker Pro slot, allow players to take advantage of options that promise higher payouts. Also, gamers have to consider factors such as volatility.
“High volatility means you’ll have to play more hands to land a win, but once you do, it will be high. On the other hand, low volatility slots pay frequently, but in peanuts. It is up to you to choose”, she adds.
Considering she knows what she’s talking about, we asked her to share her favorite slot machines with high RTPs available in Poland.
Book of 99
Relax’s Gaming, blockbuster Book of 99 has an exceptionally high RTP – 99%, but if you ask Anna, that is not the only reason to play this game. She convinces us this slot is worth playing as it has the ever-popular Greek theme and spectacular graphics.
“Who doesn’t like Greek mythology and tales of ancient wars? Book of 99 is a stellar example of Greek slot done right”, she states. The game features a free spins bonus round, which players love, and a maximum win of 5,000x the stake.
“Plus, there are a bunch of special symbols that make every spin unique. You can’t beat this”, concludes Anna.
Do you like vampires? And how about vampires that pay big time? Then, Bloodsuckers by NetEnt might be the one for you! The game is played on 5 reels with 25 paylines, but what makes it special is the RTP of 98% and a high hit frequency.
“This game might seem a bit outdated, but it is worth a shot. Never judge a book by its cover, because these stylish vampires can invite you to their coffins to present you with cash prizes, and extra free spins with ginormous multipliers”, reveals Rosak, not hiding her enthusiasm.
Visually appealing, with some neat bonus games, Bloodsuckers will make even the most hesitant gaming spirits come to life!
“This one is more classic in its theme and features the ever-popular joker symbol. It is a new take on classic fruit machines we all know and love, but with a great RTP of 98%”, claims the expert.
Yggdrasil always knew how to push boundaries, and Polish players seem to be thrilled with this rewarding game. Albeit the maximum prize is not as impressive as with some other slot machines and lands at the 600x mark, Jokerizer is still worth both your time and money!
Some might say that Star Mania is nothing but a Starburst knock-off, but if you ask Rosak, it definitely added something fun and interesting to the gaming scene!
“Stars and gems are all over the place, but Star Mania is focused on a high RTP of 97.87%. Thanks to NextGens take on the galaxy gem theme, players get to enjoy payouts like never before”, says the gambling expert.
Some of the main highlights of the star-studded title are 20 free spins you can get by activating the bonus feature. Its visual appeal cannot be argued either, just like a maximum win of 1,000x the bet.
White Rabbit Megaways
“With RTP of 97.77%, White Rabbit Megaways is a game you have to give a shot. Its theme might be whacky, but the gaming experience it provides is simply superb”, Rosak is bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.
BGT’s mega-hit definitely ticks all the right boxes, at least when it comes to Polish players. “It is a real Alice in Wonderland game, with a bunch of freaky features that make gaming more fun than ever. Just think of Caterpillar Wilds, Cupcake expansions, and free spins that send you right down the rabbit hole”, concludes Anna Rosak.
