Oshi Casino launches Industry 1st Fair Play Features, as they call it. The idea is, that now you can see the RTP percentages in each games.
RTP means Return To Player. It describes how much percentage (%) of all the wagered money the casino game (usually a slot game) will return to the player.
In the short term, almost anything can happen, but in a long term the RTP percentage matches better. Usually the casino RTP % are somewhere between 94% to even 99% in online slots. A very good RTP rate is generally around 97.5 – 99%.
No casino slot will give you 100% (or over 100%), as the casino would lose money. And this is what no casino wants.
But back to Oshi Casino! Now they are announcing the RTP rates when you hover over each casino slot game.
But, how can the RTP in Reactoonz slot game be such low, 74.52%?? Let’s check some other game.
The slot game Kobushi should give 117.22% of the wagered bets to the players in the long run?! How is this possible?
It’s free money! Or is it…I asked the people at Oshi Casino, what this means.
Oshi Casino RTP percentages are current percentages, not calculated in the long run
So I got the answer and the Oshi Casino representative said that the RTP is the RTP of the slot at the moment.
This means that it is not calculated in the long run, but it is more of a slot history snapshot of the return to player rate from a shorter time.
A low % means that the slot game hasn’t given a lot of winnings lately. And a higher % means that the slot has been a “winning” choice recently.
So is there any real use for this?
I think not much.
The history of bets (win or lose) don’t affect the bets in the future, if the sample is from a shorter time.
If the RTP % is taken from a short time, it doesn’t tell anything how big or small the RTP % is in the long run. Because the long run is what matters for most players.
Maybe it is just a fun feature anyway. I sent a wish to Oshi Casino people, that if they could attach a real RTP rate (from the long run) to the slot game selection. They will think about it and let’s hope it is possible in the future!
However there is one nice search feature that not many casinos have.
Now you can search for casino games based on Volatility. Here’s what that means:
- A high volatility slot game will give you big winnings if you hit, but the winnings happen less often.
- A low volatility slot game gives you more wins, but the winnings are smaller
So you can choose your slot game depending what kind of excitement you want today. A nice update anyway and let’s hope Oshi Casino will continue updating and developing the game selection even further!
