MrQ Best For Slot Games? - Here's Why!

Sue Dawson

The wonderful MrQ have put a new behind-the-scenes initiative in place that makes them arguably the best place for UK players to play slot games. To understand just what it is they’ve done that’s so great, we first need to look at the increasingly problematic issue of slot game Return To Player.

Slot Game Return To Player – Why It Is An Issue

The Return To Player (RTP) of a slot game is the percentage of player stakes that is paid back out as winnings, averaged over millions of spins by hundreds of thousands of players.  The higher the RTP of the game you choose to play, the longer, on average, you’ll be able to continue to play it without running out of cash.  Or to put it another way, the lower the RTP of the game you choose to play, the bigger the house edge i.e. the more the odds are stacked against you.

Slot game Return To Player is an issue for players in 2023 in a way that it never has been in the past.  Why? – because back in the day almost all slot games had a fixed RTP which was the same regardless of which casino you played them at.  This is no longer true and lots of very popular slot games now have variable Return To Player.

What does variable Return To Player mean?  It means, in effect, that there are several slightly different versions of these slot games and the operator chooses which one to run at their casino or casinos.

For example, let’s take that well known slot game, Big Bass Bonanza.  It’s easy to check the RTP of this slot game at any online casino where you have an account – just look in the paytable.  As of October 2023, there were no fewer than 4 different levels of RTP for this super popular game at UK facing sites:

Quite the nasty surprise!

The Return To Player of slot games can change and may not be the same at all casinos. Please check the in-game documentation before playing for the correct RTP figure.

Online gambling operators do have to make the RTP of slot games available to players but there is no obligation to draw attention to it, so unless you check the game help files before you play you may not realise that you are playing one of the lower RTP versions of the game until you start to wonder why your wallet is going down so quickly!

What MrQ Are Doing About Slot Game Retunr To Player

MrQ have always been all about honesty and transparency, which is why they have never had any wagering requirements on any of their offers and promotions.  Now, that regard for players has been taken to a new level with the “RTP Impressions” initiative.  Very simply, they are doing two things to fix the issue:

  1. They periodically and systematically check on slot game RTP at other UK facing casinos and ensure the RTP they offer is always the highest available.
  2. The RTP of every slot game at MrQ is displayed in large friendly writing on the game loading screen so you can’t possibly miss it.

That’s a bit more like it!

This ensures that not only are they top dog as far as the best payout casinos go, but that players are always informed of the Return To Player of the game they are about to play, before they start to play it.  How about that for honesty and transparency?  Top marks!
