Return-to-Player (RTP)

Back to Guide

Reputable and licensed online operators are required to operate according to stringent rules and guidelines. These are in place to ensure that platforms provide Fair Gaming experiences, with games offering the same chance of winning or losing to players. Along with Random Number Generator (RNG) action in online slots, Return-to-Player rates must fall within specified margins. Read on to find out more about these margins and their impact on a games playing experience.

Getting to know RTP

In online slots and other games, the Return-To-Player or RTP value is the payout percentage, or the amount that will potentially be paid back to players over an amount of time. In table games, this is sometimes referred to as the House Edge.

Return-to-Player (RTP) is an average percentage that a game returns to the player. If a game’s RTP is 96%, this means that the game will return to the players, on average, €96 for every €100 wagered on that game. In Germany there is no statutory minimum quota. In other countries, this is often 92%, with Wildz offering an average rate of 96.5%.

The RTP is just an average and does not necessarily mean that each player will receive a 95-97% return on their wagering.

For example, Customer A may win €192 on €100 in wagers, while Customer B may lose their €100 wager. Total Wins by customers A and B are therefore €192 and wagering €200, thus the average RTP is in this case 96% (192/200=0,96)

The 95-97% figure is an average of returns among all players.

Where do I find a game’s RTP?

The RTP of a game may be displayed in different ways. On opening an online slots game, you are likely to see the information ( i ) symbol or a ? symbol on the page. When you click on these symbols they usually reveal information about the game, including the RTP, although in some cases you may need to scroll through one or two pages to find it. You will also find information about the volatility of the game. Volatility describes the risks of losing money, it also determines the amount of money you stand to eventually win, with a bit of luck and, as a concept, is linked to RTP.

Online slots are games of chance, so while the RTP and volatility rates of each game may differ, there are no tricks to influencing spins, bonus rounds or the outcomes of games.

RTP, licencing and Responsible Gaming

Players are advised to use licenced and regulated online operators. Bodies such as the Joint Gambling Authority of the Federal States (GGL) have strict rules that must be adhered to before licences are provided, with practices, including those that incorporate RNGs, being maintained at all times. These are meant to protect the player. Players should also exercise Responsible Gaming, to ensure an enjoyable online gambling experience.

You can explore all the different game titles available at Wildz via the game lobby, with the option to enjoy many for free in Demo Mode. This is a good way to play a range of games to see how RTP and volatility work in games, so you can choose which ones suit your preferred style of play.
