Working Out Payout Percentages
It is no fun when playing any type of slot machine if you are not getting your fair share of winning combinations spinning in, and the most important part of any slot game whether it is an online slot game or one that is found in a land based venue is the slot machines payout percentage.
On old mechanical slot machines the payout percentage was worked out by the number of possible reel positions and what symbols appeared on each reel and the payouts for each winning combination, on modern day slot games this is still the case, however random number generators are the brains behind the slot and when you through into the equation bonus rounds and features working out the expected payout percentages on slot games can be extremely hard and it is not something that casino software companies like to disclose.
Having said all that below you will find the expected payout percentages for a range of our featured online slot games and also a guide showing you how to work out your actual payout percentage, which will enable you to see just how well you are doing.Microgaming Slots RTP Payout Percentages

Feathers of Fortune
Should you wish to work out your actual RTP (Return To Player) Payout Percentages then all you need to do is to keep a complete track of both how many games you have played, the stake of each spin and how much you won on each spin (this figure should also include any bonus game winnings along with any winnings achieved from any winning gamble feature you may have made).
Next you need to do the following mathematical equation: Get your total winnings figure and divide it by the total amount you staked on that particular slot session, you will then have a figure which is either 0. something or 1. something. If it is the former then the digits after the zero is your payout percentage and this means you had a losing session, should the figure you end up be 1. something then simply move the decimal point it in between the third and fourth digit, this is then the payout percentage you achieved and this will indicate a winning slot session.
To help you get your head around these figures let us show you a couple of examples. Let's say you made 198 spins at $2 per spin that equates to a total amount staked of $396. If you won in total on the slot during these 198 spins a total of $154 then divide the second figure (total winnings) $154 by $396 (your total stakes on all these spins), the figure you will end up with is 0.38, so remove the zero and decimal point and your payout parentage is an extremely bad 38%
If on the other hand you made 434 spins at £5 per spin (434x$5 =$2170 total stakes) and you won in total $5123 (total winnings) then divide the winnings by the stakes and you will get 2.3608, move the zero to in between the third and forth digit and you end up with 236.08, this means the payout percentage you got for that particular slots session was 236.08% and was therefore a winning one as it is above 100!
As you can see from the above information all the slots available at Microgaming powered online casinos offer you some very generous returns, however if you ever are experiencing a very bad paying session then maybe the best policy is to stop playing that slot and not become too obsessed on chasing that illusive jackpot!
