In online casinos there are many different technical elements involved in the development of the products such as slots and games and one of these is RTP which stands for ‘Return To Player’.

Each game is allocated an RTP which is presented as a percentage and refers to the amount that an online slot or game should in theory pay you back for every £100 that is wagered.

Most games have an RTP that is between 95 and 98 percent. This means that if a slot has a 98 percent RTP then for every £100 that you wager, you should get £98 back. Let’s take a look at how you can use this to your advantage.

Do your research

Slots with a higher RTP usually means that the house has less of an advantage and as a result, it increases your chances of winning more frequently. When you are looking for slots to play, it is worth finding the ones that appeal the most based on the RTP rate. This is usually displayed below or above each slot depending on the site.

There are quite a lot of slots that have a high RTP percentage and as a result, these are quite popular. However, it is worth getting an idea of the ones that appeal to you, before you start playing.

We reached out to online casino Fruity King who explained the importance of how doing your research can help you to use RTP to your advantage: “Quite often a lot of players are not aware of RTP or even what it is, so we definitely recommend that you make sure that you research a few slots first before you start to playing.”

Manage your bankroll

While it might be tempting to play 100 £1 spins on one slot if you haven’t received a payout after 20 spins, then it could be worth trying another slot and applying the same principle. The RTP is based on an average number, which means you could start being paid out either at the start, middle or near the end of your 100 spins. That is why it is important to manage your bankroll and make good judgement calls as to whether you think you are going to be successful or not. Also, make sure that you are comfortable with your method of making deposits such as by using an e-wallet.

Make the most of Wilds

Choosing a high RTP slot that has plenty of wilds can really help to maximise your chances of winning due to the number of free spins that you are able to unlock. As a result, this could dramatically increase your winnings. Wilds are one of the most important features that an online slot has, so by selecting wisely, you can really use the RTP to your advantage.
