Based on everything covered in this post, you might wonder if it’s even worth bothering with RTP. My personal opinion is that payback isn’t the Holy Grail that slots players make it out to be. But you also shouldn’t completely discount slot machines’ payback. The main thing to consider is your personal goals. Are you looking for big wins in the short run, or are you going to be a long time slots player?
If you are mainly looking to win in a single session, then you should choose slot machines with low volatility. These are typically games that don’t have a big jackpot nor many bonus features. If you are a long-term slots player who’s the dreaming of winning big, then RTP becomes a more important factor. You should choose jackpot slots that offer good base payback to replenish losses.
Earlier I covered how such a game has in Mega Fortune, which offers 96.4% RTP and a jackpot that’s normally worth seven figures. Chances are that you are not going to hit a seven-figure jackpot any time soon. But the 96.4% base payback at least ensures that you can net smaller wins in the meantime. High payback comes in handy even if you are not chasing life-changing money. Games that combine low volatility with good RTP offer an excellent chance to win in any given session.
