What Is The Average Slot Machine Payout?

# What Is The Average Slot Machine Payout?

The average slot machine payout is about 90%. This means that for every \$1.00 you wager, you will earn \$0.90 in return. So generally, it takes more than a minute of continuous play to make back the money you invested in playing slots. However, while this may seem bad at first glance, there are some games out there with enormous payouts that can rake in up to billions of dollars per year. Therefore, it is important to know how these payouts work inĀ rtp slot so that you can understand whether or not the game you are playing will make a good investment.

What Factors Contribute to Payout Percentage

It is important to know that payout percentages vary from game to game and also from denomination. The major factors affecting payout percentage are:

Random Number Generators (RNG)

The RNG is a computer algorithm that plays the game. The RNG uses a random number generator to determine the outcome of each spin which then randomly selects which symbol or symbol combination will appear on the reel. For example, let’s say that you want to play “Hawaii’s Pearl” for \$0.25 per line. The RNG then randomly decides which symbol combination to show on the reel. The RNG will therefore show a combination of symbols (which are usually three in number), and then award you with the corresponding payout.

Payout Table

This is a chart that is created based on the results of thousands and thousands of plays. The payout table shows how much each symbol combination pays out for each possible value of the bet you put on the game; for example, a quarter (\$0.25), fifty cents (\$0.50) and a dollar (\$1.00). This is important because the payout table is what’s used to determine what each symbol combination will pay out. The game designers will then assign a specific number in the random number generator so that each symbol combination has an equal chance of appearing on a reel.

Target Return

This is the average amount that a player will need to wager in order to receive the intended payout. For example, if a casino wants to provide gamblers with an average return of 92%, this means that, for every \$100 invested in the game, \$92 will be given back. This can be calculated by finding 100*(1-0.92) = 8% which is how much of the money bet will go towards paying out prizes and keeping the casino’s profits.
