Push Gaming Will Offer Lower RTP Slots

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

Slot designer Push Gaming is joining the list of developer that are making the games less advantageous for players by introducing variable return to player (RTP) values beginning July 1st.

The move comes after the Malta Gaming Authority opted to allow casinos to offer lower versions of the games, with payouts available as low as 85%. This should concern players, as the games generally stand in the 95-96% range. Push is going to be offering three different choices for casino operators to decide on: Standard RTP (which has the current RTP numbers), a 95% variant, and a 90% variant.

The first games to get the changed RTP numbers will be Razor Shark, Jammin' Jars, and Jammin' Jars 2.

"In response to fast-changing markets and recent regulatory changes, we have decided to provide lower RTP versions of our games," said Push Gaming CCO Nicola Longmuir. "We have been aware of the many discussions surrounding variable RTPs for some time, however, we felt that this was the right moment for us to start implementing them."

"Variable RTPs allow operators more flexibility within the overall player experience. We have also taken every effort to ensure that players choosing to play one of our games will be aware of the RTP in play from the game loading screen, as of Thursday 1st July 2021. We are also working on introducing even more measures that go beyond mandatory requirements in the coming weeks, which we will communicate to you shortly."

Well that sucks but at least this sounds promising:


We have also taken every effort to ensure that players choosing to play one of our games will be aware of the RTP in play from the game loading screen

Assuming he speaks the truth, as soon as you see a lowered RTP on the loading screen you can at least shut it down and play something else before the game finishes loading.


Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing at a new casino.

Maybe Push is going to be getting a new marketing push: "We're announcing our new slot branding line, 'Sucker Bets'. It coincides with our lower RTP options that we've so graciously gifted to casinos. Any time you play a slot below the standard RTP, you're playing 'Sucker Bets'! Get on the action while your bankroll can handle it!"
