You're completely right. That is pure speculationPure speculation but with the way the low RTP roll-out has been handled, I reckon a percentage of problem gamblers would have been left in financial ruin as a result, clicking away and wondering why the games are not playing as they did before.
Lower RTP reduces max win potential and changes the volatility of games - I have seen the stats.
Way to go MGA and UKGC! Nice protection of problem gamblers! What a con!
