Top 5 Microgaming Slots with the Highest RTP

Staff Writer in Casino Strategies 24 Jan 2018


Different slot players look for different things in a game, and while some value high quality of visuals and intricate animations, and others choose titles based on special features and/or win potential, we’re all obviously looking to win more than we’ve invested. Theoretical return to player (RTP) gives a good indicator as to how one might perform over a longer period of time. For example, a slot with an RTP of 90% is, theoretically, expected to pay 90 cents back on every dollar you spend while spinning its reels. Payout percentages can range from very low 75% (though such RTPs are more likely to be found in land-based casinos) to around 95-96%; anything above that is considered to be quite generous. Microgaming fans are fortunate enough to be offered quite a few titles with RTPs as high as 97% and over. If you’re looking for a game which will make your buck last longer, try these 5 Microgaming slots with RTPs well above average.

Retro Reels Extreme Heat – 97.5% RTP

Retro Reels Extreme Heat is a slot which combines the best of both worlds: it looks like a classic, with traditional symbols such as flaming 7s, BAR icons, bells, lemons and cherries, but plays with 5 reels and 30 paylines while offering several interesting extras. Wild icon does the job of a substitute, and Scatters trigger up to 20 free games with all wins doubled. Spinning on the house has the potential to deliver a very generous amount of 440,000 coins, all the more enjoyable for not having to invest a single cent to make it happen. Retro Reels Extreme Heat features an additional treat not frequently found in slot games: it offers you to re-spin any reel you choose at the end of any round, though you will have to pay the price for this rare privilege. How much? It varies and is calculated separately for each reel, clearly marked for you to consider before making the re-spin.

Hot Ink – 97.5% RTP

Hot Ink is a 1,024-ways slot featuring rarely exploited tattooing theme. Like the one above, it also comes with a re-spin feature which will let you have another go by spinning an individual reel (at a price) while others remain stationary. And you can do this as many times as you want! Scatters will pay up to 100x your total stake and award the Tattoo bonus, prompting you to pick albums, reveal a combination of tattoos, and win a prize. Find 3 matching tattoos and you’ll get to spin on the house while all payouts get doubled, ideally collecting as much as 122,500 coins. Another freespin option, triggered by Koi fish, has the potential to cash out up to 100,000 coins.

MegaSpin High 5 – 97.43% RTP

MegaSpin High 5 is an unusual affair offering you to play four, six or nine 3-reel and 1-payline slots on a single screen. Each set of reels can be spun by investing 1, 2 or 3 coins per round, and the more games you choose to play, the better are your chances to collect the jackpot worth $75,000. While you’re trying to form winning combos with classic 7s and BARs, the only help will be offered by Wild symbol depicted as the High 5 logo and multiplying the win x5 or x25 (depending on the number of contributing substitutes). Wild is also your most valuable game icon, willing to pay up to 15,000 coins for three-of-a-kind.

Couch Potato – 97.43% RTP

This is yet another high RTP slot catering to fans of classic fruities. Launch Couch Potato and you’ll get to spin 3 reels and claim wins on a single payline. On top of the traditional 7s, BAR symbols and cherries, you’ll see game logo which acts Wild and multiplies win by x5 (if only one) or x10 (for two). One can choose to bet 1, 2 or 3 coins per spin and collect up to 15,000 coins for a combo consisting of 3 Wild icons.

Machine Gun Unicorn – 97.19% RTP

Machine Gun Unicorn is a 10-payline slot developed by Genesis Gaming on Microgaming Quickfire platform. It’s a corky-looking and sounding game, contrasting colorful unicorns (which, admittedly, look kind of peeved off) with monstrous “evil” heads trapped in jars. Wild substitute, depicted as a unicorn with a machine gun where its horn should be, appears on reel 3 exclusively and will stand in for any of the other game symbols. It doesn’t show up all that often, but every time it lands, the unicorn will shoot its machine gun and make all zombie heads explode, awarding credits for each explosion. Though the game will not necessarily feel all that generous while playing, it does feature well above average RTP.
