Casino games vary hugely in quality. Games in the virtual currency sectors typically benefit from being unregulated and are able to utilise the latest and greatest gaming technologies to deliver games. Likewise even in the regulated sector popular games exist at either end of the quality sector.
When reviewing casino game content Return to Player has introduced a set of foundation guidelines to ensure that all reviews are reasonably standardised. The key areas of assessment are explained below.
The Game will have its key listings at the start including:
Each game will be assessed under the following criteria, which provides suggestions and examples of elements that are reviewed. Each of the 5 categories is assigned a range between 1-10, with 1 being the worst and 10 being the best.
Please note that the elements here are not exhaustive:
The overall rating is a mean aggregate of the 5 review categories, with the following flags:
Whilst all our articles are open and honest – after all, we want you to have the best playing experience – we do realise that they are also subjective. For example – one reviewer may dislike a particular slot theme, and it is possible that will enjoy it less and give it a lower ‘Enjoyment’ score.
Therefore, in order to introduce some element of standardisation across our reviews, we established the ‘RTP Challenge’. Will’s mathematical explantion coming soon 😉
Return to Player reviews games on the basis of our own interests, word of mouth, games gaining popularity and games that offer something unique different or compelling.
Return to Player reviews games on the above guidelines. We are as objective as is possible in applying this criteria across the board. If you don’t agree with the criteria please drop an email, use our contact form, or raise a post in the forum and let us know your thoughts.
We would only change a review score if we believe the game has received significant major update since our published review, or there is a significant change to our review criteria that would unfairly prejudice games reviewed on the legacy system. Where we do change a score we will list the legacy score and the reason for the update.
Please submit the details to our contact form. We don’t guarantee we’ll review every game because we are always limited by resources. You should know that we’ll only review games that are published and live. We will preview games that are not yet published but they should have a legitimate expectation to be published.
Not at all. The developer’s published RTP has been certified by third party ATFs and is verified in accordance with gambling regulations. The RTP Test is simply a basic snapshot to give you a rough expectation of what you could expect playing the game from fresh for 20mins or so.
