Just a heads up to everyone.

This slot when I checked the Help File and looked at the RTP I was shocked to see it at:

Shocking............... So avoid this slot like the coronavirus.. :D :D

EDIT: Forgot to mention - this was at Videoslots casino..... So not sure what the rtp is elsewhere. Not checked other casinos yet! :p

Anyone know if Just for the win provider has multiple RTP options available for casino operators to choose from?

Actually played this last night, oopsie. It seems to be a low-paying symbols game but did hit like some 20x hits to be fair in the base game. Hit free spins once and 1/4 of the spins were dead spins.

Same RTP at Novibet who run the highest settings.

So that will mean it will be the same everywhere then.

Looking at the RTP for their other slots that Just for the win do. They usually are above 95%. Wolf Howl is one I love and play all the time.

Wolf howl is 96%

I really do wonder why they made this slot have such low and bad RTP? What was they even thinking?. They was thinking "oh lets release a very low RTP slot and hope no one ever checks the RTP info in the help files!" LOL I mean seriously :p

It's 92.1% in total whiich isn't as bad as the headline figure, but still lower than usual. I imagine it will be the same everywhere unless Novibet have started adding lower RTP's to their catalogue.

Doesnt matter what the total RTP is because the missing RTP is contributed by the jackpots, that most players will never ever get to see. Getting the jackpot wheel in these games is next to impossible, and even if you do win it, it's most likely the smallest amount for a tenner.

Tried it the other night and it does like to give small returns tho, typical jackpotslot I'd say. Didn't stay long because it was very teasy on the scatters and I knew where that was going: absolutely nowhere.

Pure filth and garbage....MG has become one of the worst, straight out contracted cut rate provider crap, I turned my back long ago and I would suggest most to follow, to all here that have known the true past our time has come.....I am down to a small handful of games from a small handful of providers....the writing has been on the way for quite some time, the real challenge is coming to grips with it all.

The fewer players who can reach a withdrawable amount the better for the casinos. It is much better for them in the long run to allow the odd monster hit which may result in said player quitting (doubtful), whilst keeping most struggling. It’s pretty much how Vegas operates.

Big difference is that Vegas slots are more geared around entertainment and you get free drinks (aside from tips). You may still win but more about getting value for money.

Online slots are more around big headline wins. Downside for all this is that players will get sick and tired of it. Suspect they already are. For those who think 2, 3, 4 % won’t be that noticeable, I give it a year, 2 at most, and the industry in this country will be more like a ghost town. Players can only take so many losing sessions and these are going to ramp up with RTPs like this.

I notice SkyVegas are running a free spin bonus if you play a selection of their “must be won” JPs. These have a base non JP RTP of 89% by and large. No wonder they are enticing people to play them.

That's dreadful for a Megaways, double the normal house edge even taking progressives into account. Make sure you play MW games from developers that offer no RTP variations. The OP is right to warn people about this. Playing volatile slots at 96%+ is bad enough most of the time, but this.....

They should rename the developer JFTW, Just For The Witless

Remember tho it is not new for slots MG run to have such low RTP in base game.

Only difference this time to their normal Jackpot games is the lower contribution to Jackpot.

Even over 10 years ago when they launched Mega Moolah it only had an 85% RTP in base game. The other 10% went to Jackpots.

Guess in those days noone really checked RTP on slots so went unmentioned most just thought it was a good slot with regular jackpot wheel.

IIRC Mega Moolah used to be 88.1% in the base game with the rest to progressives, total RTP was about 96%.

The jungle themed one wasn't too bad as it was very low volatility, but the (unfortunately named) Isis one was high variance which was not a good match for an 88% RTP!

I generally don't bother with progressives, it's pretty damn close to setting fire to a large chunk of your RTP.

Yeah rarely play them myself.

Did play Mega Moolah occasionally when it came out. Only because I hit over £2000 on it on a 25p bet at Ladbrokes a day or so after it was released lol.

But like mentioned even back then the base game RTP was garbage just noone ever mentioned RTP back in those days very often.

Just shows i am getting old and played online too long lol.

JFTW is one of the microgaming contractors, remember how great mg used to be, how far they have fallen, ever since around the time they stopped making games with autoplay - coincidence? maybe..
