Has Play'n GO removed RTP information from demo versions of their slots?

Simple question I am trying to confirm the answer to.

I don't mean when logged in, I mean when visiting a new casino and trying a demo game.

Everything I am finding has had the RTP information removed.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I can confirm that on every demo they've had on their site or that I have reviewed from, the 'info' button doesn't bring a page up and there's NO RTP info.

I'm looking at sites without joining and playing in demo. I can bring up the info page but the line mentioning RTP is missing :)

Started noticing it about a week ago, spotted a fair few sites, hence the question.

Demos used to have the RTP listed and I'm just wondering if it's been removed across the board for all demos on all sites.

That's quite likely as the information could then be compiled by affiliates or forums to tell people what RTP casinos offer without new players having to join to discover it. It would be unfavourable to many casinos offering lower RTPs therefore 'try before you buy' is not what they want.
It would also expose any casinos offering demos at 96% and real play at lower. Which should NOT happen at all, but I bet it does in places.

Exactly what I was thinking.

More completely ethical and upfront moves from the gaming giant :)

What's the betting that all demos have been set to max RTP or would that not be allowed? Would anyone even check? I doubt it, apart from me maybe :)

Quite frankly that’s tough titties. For a free market that works effectively this info should not be hidden. We need people to be signing up at the higher RTP casinos to put pressure on the others to put theirs back up. Why always a race to the bottom??

Damn! No rtp in demo versions anymore. It’s not like I would play any of them. It just shows how they influence the market towards lower rtp.
I receievd free spins on BOD at sunpura casino (n1) and for the first time ever I was in shock seeing 87% rtp. The game is funny at this % . It’s like playing over and over the same 10 dead spins with a 2 scatter tease from time to time.

About a month ago Playngo reduced their maximum RTP to 94% percent for all Curacao licensed casinos. The minimum available still stands at 84%.

No worries guys. The RTP can still be checked using a “browser method”. For example, Sofswiss casino Fastpay, slot Book of dead:

Demo version - 94%. Same slot real money version - 84%. See the attachments.

Are you sure about that? I'm playing in Curacao jurisdiction, at max RTP across the board.

Yes, I am sure. Got this information from one of the Curacao casino owners. Several Curacao casinos I play at and that had 96% rtp on Playngo slots have changed it to 94% about one month ago.

Your location says Essex, you shouldn't be able to play demo slots within the UK as you need to be verified as over 18. Pretty sure this is a violation of their UKGC license

In regards the to RTP not being available, it could possibly be down to the variable RTPs - as you are not logged in or signed up, they have no true location verification. Could be an average RTP for the demo

I am checking using a masked VPN so they have no idea where I am from.

Play'n GO used to list the RTP of a demo, it's only recently I've noticed them missing.

Possibly down to my IP, but I doubt it because they used to be listed.

All the demos I have checked on the png site are on 96% apart from reactoonz which is on 94% for some reason but yeah you cant get the help page or history up on demo play, have to use browser method.

Another thing you can check which applies to viking runecraft only, the Valhalla pot contribution on 96% is 12% on 94% its 10% (this can be verified in the pay table)
