Quite a few of the bigger providers are getting into the (welcomed) habit of publishing theoretical returns for their games on game rules pages. These pages are typically accessed from a help (?) button on the game interface.
Set out below are those published rates. Games/providers are absent from the list if they do not publish returns.
Theoretical returns / RTP / Return to Player/ House edge
These are all different expressions for the same concept: what proportion of total bets will the house take and what proportion will be returned to the player, assuming optimal play over a long period of time.
An RTP rate or theoretical return of 98% is the equivalent of a 2% house edge and implies that (for example) for every $100 staked the player will win $98 and the house takes $2. There’s a little more on RTP rates here, including the difference between theoretical and actual returns.
