Surely not lower than 50% lol.

Least the game is called balloons so playing it you would expect to burst out.
You would think not, but they are constantly lowering the bar.
Miles ahead (or below i guess) of competitors

Meh, if people still want to make charitable donations to casinos such as VS that are gouging their players left right and centre, that's entirely up to them I suppose.

I'll bang the drum from time to time on my channel 'cause not everyone knows about the RTP shenanigans, so if even a handful more people get clued up it's worth it.
it's always worth it, love your videos and the fight you do for the casino community.

Never thought I’d see the day, where getting in your car and driving 100 miles to a motorway service station, pulling up a chair and loading some god awful offering whilst dining on scandalous over priced food, would represent better value than an offering from an online casino such as videoslots.

Not only that, you could then fill ur car to the brim with over priced petrol drive back home and still be better off!!!

They must literally get so wound up when they have to offer a game that they can’t nail to the floor with some of the bent provider offerings off terrible %ages.

But it’s not just them I’m afraid. It’s happening all over the shop. Giants like Hills, Gala Coral and Sky etc are churning out games on shocking RTP.

We are now at the point where a visit to a bookies or land based casino represents better value from a slots perspective. But at least at these venues you can get a free tea or coffee or get ya self a nice cold beer while you do it!! Even if both taste shit.

Shame on videoslots and shame on the others who are all following suit. Only a matter of time before the few remaining ones that have resisted the temptation so far do the same.

What boggles my mind is people still play at VS, with justifications like, 'Oh well I don't play the slots that have the gimped RTPs', and I'm just thinking that's like there's a local pub where you know the landlord is watering down the beer but you're OK with it and just make a point of finding out which beers he's watering down and not ordering those ones.

But the point is, of course, the landlord is trying to water down your beer, stop giving him your business! And people who don't know any better are getting conned paying full price for the watered down beer.

Slots on shitty RTPs and casinos running slots on shitty RTPs would cease to exist if people stopped playing them. Whilst places like Unibet, Novibet and Rizk still exist serving the UK market running all the top RTPs, playing at somewhere like VS is pretty much literally just shooting yourself in the foot as a player.

I have been doing some digging and it appears that there is no minimum RTP by law.

It’s so contradicting. They’re here to protect players, from gambling harm. Set objectives that operators have to fulfil.

Surely subjecting problem gamblers to games with such low payout percentages will increase harm as more money can be lost a lot faster.

The only people who are gaining from this situation is the operator and provider. Was it MGA who have/are imposing a minimum RTP?

I don’t think anyone is winning at those percentages. Hacksaw gaming should not be allowing an option to go as low as that. I wonder if that’s the absolute lowest or can it even go lower? LOL

I've had a look about and can't find their games in many places, but where I did, not one was running at these levels.
WHG are running it at 85.09, which is shit, but a massive 35% higher than scummyslots videoslots are

Is there a site that you can sort games by provider and RTP%?
For eg; if I wanted to find the highest RTP Quickspin slot or something.

At Videoslots you click "game payout" and you choose theoretical instead of actual and choose game provider you want to check and choose highest payout instead of popular, and it will show the list of the games from the highest RTP .

Exasctly why I stopped playing at Videoslots. Very tiring trying to find slots that have not been gimped on the RTP.

I also dont understand why people play Videoslots. The battles are all but pointless these days. And yes payouts are quick but which casino does not have quick same day payouts these days ? I also find the stock responses they give on the videoslots thread at times really patronizing.

Yesterday I joined Platin casino - no battles - but Highest rtps on all games. Account verified within an hour. Payouts to paypal within minutes. Why on earth would I play somewhere where they take a 50% further cut into my potential payouts. Pure greed by Videoslots and they wont see another deposit from me ever.

I wonder how many have raised the RTP issues with UKC? Their surveys avoided those questions.

I'm tempted to contact them and basically point out how bad RTP is for the players, and will definitely use the RTP at this game for this reason, how can they get away with this? And shame to the provider too, have they no moral standards?

But if people complained to the UKGC and the UKGC decided to act upon those complaints which to be fair I do not see happening anyway. UKGC do not care about RTP.

But anyway all what will happen is it would then just drive VS and other casinos who have started to reduce the RTP of slots and games to stop allowing players from those countries who crack down on it. If that did happen that will indeed be a sad time. I mean look I am massively against VS RTP's now. I remember years ago they strived to always run the highest RTP;s but they changed that last year.

The more people who get more into checking RTP and being vocal about it the better. But also VS will not change their RTP to highest again until perhaps the taxes or fees and outgoings are reduced and they feel they can then move back to higher RTP for the slots. But at the end of the day majority of players do not even know about RTP. So VS and other casinos obviously know this and they just do not care. I would say or guess about 10% of the playerbase know about RTP and actively check what the RTP of slots are before they play them. It might be 20% it was just a guess.

Well, I made a complaint to them asking if they were considering RTP in their review. MGA has at least a standard of 92%, not sure why UKGC should not have a set amount either tbh. (I did ask them to set it to the highest, dreaming)

If players don’t even know under which license they are playing i guess they don't also know what RTP even means. And if 95% of players are totally ignorant about this basic stuff then it's game over and casinos can do what ever they want because the big crowd is not interested.

The result of the study is totally shocking and it's a big shame that a huge majority play online casinos without any knowledge of the basics

I wonder if they handpicked players that are 80+ years old to get those numbers.
Because not knowing how to check if a site has a Swe license is basically the same as saying "i dont know how to google" or "i dont know how to access spelinspektionens website"
