What Online Slots Have the Highest RTP?

RTP, or Return to Player, simply refers to the likelihood of a particular slot machine paying out winnings to a player. It does not refer to how much it will pay out, crucially, but how often it will pay out something.

Physical slot machines have an RTP of 85%, but online slots have RTPs of anywhere from 92% to 99%. This may sound like as close to a sure thing as you can get in gambling, but as anyone who has ever played any sort of slot game can tell you, this does not mean that you come up tops virtually all of the time. 

In fact, slots offer some of the worst odds of any casino game when it comes to actually making money. You may get some money back every time you play, but you’re much, and I mean much, more likely to win $5 by playing $500 than you are to win $500 by playing $5. Also, these percentages are taken over long periods so even on a machine with a 99% RTP, you may end up playing 5 spins in a row with nothing to show for it.

    2. Rainbow Riches Pick n Mix by Barcrest. This colorful classic reaches up to a 98% RTP thanks to its trademark Big Bet bonus system, where up to three bonuses are played to in effect, triple up your bet.
