Interesting stuff.

5 Lions in November and December would have upset the regulars of that slot. Do you know if that is a max, mid or low paying version of RTP?

Easy to see why 1429 Uncharted Seas is on bonus exclusion lists with that performance.

Would love to see a 6 month spread of lower RTP against higher.

Its nice to post RTP - respect.

However, it doesn't mean much without understanding the total game rounds that went through those slots.

It's a site with a fairly modest number of daily visitors on their site from what I can tell. On many of those games the number of spins will be low and any extended run of low RTP or big wins will swing it a lot. Impossible to read anything from the RTP really.

Looked at VS last 6 months for 7 Piggies.

Aug - 81.5%
Sept - 84.5%
Oct - 82.3%
Nov - 87.7%
Dec- 92.3%

Not going to prove much because we dont know the volumes and I would assume VS have many more spins going through but purely out of interest If you get a chance could you screenshot 7 Piggies RTP for last 6 months please @Kyocer777 ?

Wasnt covered in first shot and is only one that springs to mind at lower RTP on VS

Dont worry as it wont tell much. Just was going to grab the opportunity to compare and the more info i get the bigger the picture becomes for me.

Thanks anyway and yes, interesting stuff (for me anyway).

Sorry VS is an abbreviation for Videoslots Casino. They show the history of actual RTP on their slots also.

They offer whatever they can get their hands on lower/medium RTP. Nearly as bad as Trada Casino who literally bottom out on minimum RTP for pretty much everything.

Videoslots offer the 94.04% 7 Piggies whereas your one is the 95.99% version. So thought it would be interesting to compare, although the amount of spins going through will of course be a factor.

Would be a popular PlaynGo like Book Of Dead to use for a better comparison. Regardless of the site the slot is so popular there should be enough spins going through to level out the RTP's.

Hey no worries, thanks anyway. Sorry if i encouraged you to link.

We all know the lower versions make the casinos a lot more and the players a lot less. But its interesting to see the actual figures.

Also interesting is that some slots have not gone over rtp in 5 months , which either suggests there are not enough people playing them or the big wins are super rare.

At what point do casinos pull old games that have major rtp swings because of few too players ?

Maybe a rep could throw some light on it ?

Yes would be nice if somebody could answer. I asked a similar question a couple of times but no response. Hopefully you will have more luck.

As far as i am aware slots are continually monitored to ensure they are running as should be.

My guess is this is done as a provider rather than individual casinos. There is of course an argument for a casino if the actual RTP is low but they have not had the spins put through the slot.

As far as i am aware they are under no obligation to pull a slot if its running at low RTP. My guess, as i said, is its monitored from the providers end for each jurisdiction - Just a guess though.

As for what happens if a slot is under-performing i dont know if its as basic as pulling and fixing or if there are some 'on the fly' adjustments which can be made to avoid taking the slot down. Another question ive been searching for an answer for.

Can't say for each operator, but slots are generally not pulled that often by a casino due to low turnover on the specific game, it simply wont affect them financially.

RTP are monitored by providers, but of course if a RTP is way out of expected over a decent amount of spins, operators will also flag it.

In this case you are looking at the RTP from a casino with about 1000 daily unique visitors, It's highly likely that some of the above games hardly see any gameplay, and a handful of above or below average RTP sessions will have massive impacts.

The RTP is calculated(And tested) on millions/billions of rounds, and it's fair to say that in this case the casinos game round sample will not be big enough to indicate anything on a month to month basis.

Edit: obviously not commenting about VideoSlots here

I cant believe those RTP swings with what must be 1000s and 1000s of spins a month.

My RTP never deviates from 80 -115% over a month (Guestimating17000 spins a month), and ive been playing slots for years now. Normally its bang on 96% or very close to it.

Well I do have access to my companies reports, and we see fluctuations on a daily bases, and our sample size is significantly higher than 17.000 spins :) We have days with above expected RTP, and days with below expected RTP, like any other game provider.
