NetEnt adjustable RTP games to watch out for

9 replies • Last post

A few months ago we reported that Net Entertainment would be rolling out adjustable RTP versions of some of their games. This means that operators are able to change the RTP of a game to a lower or even higher (yeah right, who are they kidding) setting than the default. In most cases the operator can choose from 8 different settings with a roughly 1% difference between each.

So far these are the games that you need to watch out for:

  • Butterfly Staxx: 90 - 99.1%, default 96.8%.
  • Fruit Shop: 90.1 - 99.1%, default 96.7%.
  • Guns n' Roses: 90.1 - 99.1%, default 97%.
  • Reel Rush: 90.1 - 99.1%, default 97%.
  • Starburst: 90.1 - 99.1%, default 96.1%.
  • Twin Spin: 91.1 - 99.1%, default 96.6%.

I'd be especially wary of Starburst as it is NetEnt's most popular game, so it will be ripe for exploitation by greedy casinos.

How can you tell what the current setting is? Look for the game help button, which is on the bottom left if you're playing a desktop version of the game, or in the game menu for mobile versions. This should bring up a page detailing the rules and how to play the game, and the RTP setting should be specified there. If you find the RTP has been lowered, take your money elsewhere and you might as well let the casino know why you are doing so when you do.

Oh this is very true. We know, straight from the horse's mouth... NetEnt. We have pdf documents published by NetEnt for their customers that show the payout rates at the different settings.

Here is an example.

Imagine playing 92% RTP slots 🔥💰🔥

The first thing I do whenever I play a new game is Google the RTP. Anything under 96% is an insta-quit for me (with the exception of progressives).

you are absolutely right matthew ... i go a little higher ... 96.3-96.5% is the lower limit for me.
try slotcatalog.com matthew ... the largest RTP database I could find so far

90% payout, yikes. Should be criminal for online casinos with such lower overhead to have such awful return.

At least they're being transparent by listing the RTP in the rules. I'd like to see that same transparency at physical casinos.

No more Net Ent for me. Red Tiger and clearly adjustable too. Just nonsense all this - makes a mockery of the whole 'slots aren't rigged' thing that most people believe. I won't be playing any net ent or red tiger anymore. Nor will I play at any casino I find out is using anything but default RTPs on their slots; e.g. VideoSlots.

Is there a way to go into the paytables or something to see what RTP you're playing with? Seems like something that should have to be prominently shown if you're playing with anything less than the default RTP.

Guess who didn't read all the original post?
