Firstly thank you
for your kind words, we really appreciate the fact you know we are honest and enjoy our innovative games. Please understand that whilst we push honesty and transparency more than we believe any other game developer, we need to protect our intellectual property and cannot reveal all the secret sauce!
Now to answer a few questions 🤓
Quite a lot of casinos have chosen the gold 96% RTP
this is the default RTP for the game and casinos need to request specifically a lower RTP.
The German only RTP follows our platform's requirements and is currently 90.5%.
We are big advocates of player protection and responsible gambling. You should never
be able to play our games in the UK at a casino without a UK license. These casinos must comply with UK regulations. Bonus Buy and AutoPlay, as you all probably know, are not permitted in the UK. We will investigate further and raise it with our platform provider.
“I know a bit about the German market and the tax, and afraid I disagree that the other versions are not profitable. There are casinos that pass the tax on to the player - a much better way rather than offering 90% or lower.”
This is down to the Casino Operator's choice and is not anything that we can control. We would fully support all operators that legally allow higher RTP games in Germany!
“Lower RTP reduces max win potential and changes the volatility of games - I have seen the stats.”
Without giving away the secret sauce. The max win potential and the stats do not change. The volatility does change but is still accurate for what we publicize. Given you are an industry professional all I will say is that the bonus experience & top-end wins are left untouched as we adjust RTPs - we are very proud of this solution - as we feel it gives a fairer experience for the players.
Does using the power bet also increase the base game RTP.... I'd say the base game it's more brutal than the extreme NoLimitCity slots
60 Second Heist is a volatile game and sorry to hear you do not like the balance, it appears you got a very unlucky streak, there are certainly epic wins and extremely big wins to be had as can be seen in our stats that we publically share. We appreciate not every slot is for everyone. Glad to hear you do enjoy some of our slots though
To give details, the RTP split on 60 Second Heist on 96% RTP is 72% Base Game and 24% Bonus, so you can have great wins in the base game, like on all our games.
When you enable Power Bet or Bonus Bet (if outside the UK) the bonus average feature frequency is changed and your bet increases to cover the extra frequency. For example, 1.25x Power Bet will award 72% Base Game and 48% Bonus (given it occurs twice as often 1 in 200 spins). This works out as 96% RTP over the 1.25x bet.
