On some softwares it increases the odds for you to win a random jackpot.

As for gameplay I dont think so

Some games require max bet to trigger a certain feature or improve chances of hitting a progressive jackpot but they will explain this in the game instructions. Otherwise your bet will have no influence on the odds of the game.

RTG slots. The bigger bets you make, the better the chance at their jackpots.

I already read on another post that netent dracula slot if you bet 6$ and more, the rtp becomes 99%. I dont know what is the source of this info though... And I havent found it in the help file. Maybe just another legend like vampires. :eek:

Sounds like baseless rumors to be honest. No reason for NetEnt to implement this and especially then not mention it.

What i read is that the highest the bet, the higher the return percentage. So if a slot as on average a 94% return, it might be like 85% at 1c bet and 98% at 5$ bet. But i have no way to confirm or deny that.

If a slot has an RTP of say 97%..it has an RTP of 97% whether you're playing pennies, quarters, 3$ a pop etc.
After all it isn't the return to you specifically; rather the the theoretical return the machine spits out (you could walk away from your session 15% or 115%)

I know it sounds ridiculous but I read that in here more than once.... Maybe I work too much and it's just a dream...

The slot you're talking about is named "Ooh Aah Dracula" from Barcrest which provides a 99% TRTP when playing "Highroller spins" $6 each.

You're a little confused - that was on the Barcrest version: Ooh Aah Dracula!

I play this quite a lot, but it's not for the faint-hearted though - you have to bet £20 or £30 for 5 spins!
(Betting £30 gives you a CHANCE of getting £150 in the graveyard bonus at the end of free-spins, instead of the £50 max from the £20 bet)
What's more - the payouts you get are the same as betting £1/spin.
BUT... you get stacked wilds instead of the single wilds in the base game and the free-spins trigger more frequently. :thumbsup:

It's pretty low variance. I've just analysed the last 20 lots of 5 spins where I won the free-spins in the last 2 weeks:
Best win I've had from 5 spins = £380
Worst win = £64
Average win = £164
I've got free-spins roughly once in every 8 sets of 5 spins.
In those sessions I have definitely got a lot MORE than 99% RTP! :cool:
(Haven't worked out the exact profit- that would take quite a while)

This does tend to be true for land based slots, based on denominations, not bet size. So a $2 bet on a $1 machine will have a higher RTP than a $2 bet on a penny machine.

But except as mentioned for jackpots or some special features, not true online.

I agree with JasmineBed. I believe the special High Roller lounges in many Vegas casinos apply this principle but I've never heard this to be true online except, as osmeone already said, when an "extra bet" (seen on Aristocrat, NextGen and RTG slots mostly) is applied to trigger features which do improve the RTP.

Well, in my one and only experience of hi-rolling the Rhino, I'd say the opposite was true. It bent me over, whipped me, double-fisted and sodomized me then threw me in the water hole when it had finished....

My grimmest ever slotting experience. Luckily funded by Twin Spin beforehand.

Ok so I am not totally insane :) thanks for the precision guys

Your not insane at all. I believe what you are seeing is related to land based slots ( possibly even some on line). The % RTP tends to go up with the denomination of the machine.

You will also frequently see pay tables where the payout varies based on coins played. For example:
1 coin may pay 1000
2 coins pays 2000
3 coins pays 10,000

So your RTP would be higher playing max of 3 coins because of the higher jackpot amount.

This is why people say to play max coins, but with most of today's video style slots the pay tables are even across coins played so it's less of a factor then it used to be but you have to read the machine tables to see.

This is especially true for Video Poker..............love/hate that last coin left spin when you hit the RF. Arrgh..

Right here
With regard to land-based, I do not think this applies as much as some claim. If you look at the required published statistics on RTP percentages in casinos based in New Jersey or elsewhere on the US East Coast, you'll find that there is no rhyme or reason to the actual RTP's. In fact, as the bet size climbs, the RTP curves seems to resemble a bell curve, rather than an incline.

As others have said here, yes in some cases it does. As some here have pointed out, one some videopokers it can also give you a positive TRTP on the best hand, but the variance is so high you need to have unlimited of money to make use of it.

NetEnt Jackpot games

I've always wondered about the NetEnt Jackpot games. Having asked CS on several sites a couple of years ago, I got the answer saying that the more you bet, the higher chances you have at winning the Mega Jackpot. To me this makes sense, because otherwise you are just betting high stakes on a low RTP game without any increased chances of winning the Mega Jackpot. However, unless my memory falters, I recollect that a lot of the Mega Fortune winners were playing at quite low stakes.

Anyone know?

Heres a related question, if playing 1 line on say 9/15/20/25/30 liner, would the trtp again be the same as playing more lines or max lines? logic says so but there is scatters which can pay any so does it affect it at all?

Betting higher means you enter the "Jackpot Game" more frequently - but it still costs the same in the end.
e.g. A player wagering €1,000 with €10 spins will in theory get to the jackpot game the same number of times as a player wagering €1,000 with 10c spins.
Once in the Jackpot Game, the chances of winning the jackpot are the same for all players.

Disclaimer: This is how MOST Progressive Jackpot Games work - I can't say with 100% certainty that this is how all NetEnt games work.
(But I think it is!)
