Microgaming’s Worst Paying Slot Games
We do of course have a section of our website which will present to you the better paying slots by virtue of their higher than average payout percentages. This can be viewed by visiting or guide to Which Slots Return More to Players. But we do feel that by letting you know just which slots are set to return low RTP’s then you will be able to avoid playing those particular slots.
Progressive Slots – Whilst they come with jackpots that could change your life, we do have to point out that all of Microgaming’s progressive slot games do come with very low payout percentages! Looking through our list of them we can reveal slots such as the original Mega Moolah and the Mega Moolah Isis slot have RTP’s of 88.02% and 88% respectively.
Another progressive slot, the Major Millions slot game also has a very low and unappealing payout percentage, which for reference is set at just 89.37%! Things do not get much better if you choose to play their Cash Splash three reel slot or their Fruit Fiesta slots, for these two slots have RTP’s of just 91.51% and 90.09% respectively, which means they are slots you should avoid, unless you want a tiny chance of winning the jackpots on offer.
Treasure Nile Slot – The best progressive slot game to play if you want the chance of winning a huge jackpot but also want to play the slot with the highest RTP is the Treasure Nile slot, this is a 9 payline slot and all of those 9 paylines do need to be activated as the jackpot can only be won on the ninth payline! However, do be aware the RTP of this slot is very low though, and it has been certified as being just 92.11%
Fruit Slots – Players who enjoy playing Classic 3 reel slots would be best advised to steer well clear of the Fruit Slots game, for this slot has the lowest payout percentage found on any of Microgaming’s single line slots, and its RTP for reference is very low at 92.87%! You are going to find some Microgaming designed Classic slots boast RTP’s in the high 97% range and those are the slots you should be playing.
Belissimo - Microgaming also have a range of 3 reel slots on which you are able to play five different paylines per spin, several of these also have very low payout percentages though! In fact the Belissimo, Golden Dragon, Jackpot Express and their Roman Riches slot all have the same low payout percentage of 93.23%, so sadly you are going to have to add them to your list of slot games you avoid playing when logged into a Microgaming powered casino site.
Cool Buck Slot – Another 3 reel slot game which offers 5 paylines is Microgaming’s Cool Buck slot, this slot shares the same design as their Gold Coast, Jingle Bells and Flying Ace slots and all four of these slots also come with RTP’s of 94.95% which are low when compared with some of the other three reel slots found in plentiful supply at all Microgaming powered sites.
Reel Strike – Whilst many of Microgaming’s older bonus game awarding video slots do come with high RTP’s one of their slots, namely the Reel Strike slot which has been around for well over a decade, is a poor paying slot. For its long term expected payout percentage is just 94.96%. This is a Fishing themed slot and there are no shortages of better paying slots boasting a similar theme at Microgaming powered sites, one that is worthy of note is their Alaskan Fishing slot which has a RTP of 96.63%.
Dr Love – The Dr Love slot game from Microgaming is actually a great looking slot, and many slot players enjoy playing it. However, they would probably have second thoughts when they discover the long term payout percentage of this slot is just 95.04%. You will find that the average RTP of most slots is around the 96% range, and by playing lower paying slots such as Dr Love you will not get the same amount of play time or winning chances as you would when playing slots with a higher than average RTP.
King Tiger – The King Tiger video slot is found on the no download, instant play gaming platform offered at Microgaming powered casino sites. This is sadly another very poor paying slot game and its RTP is only slightly higher than the Dr Love slot game motioned above, and has been certified as being a rather dismal 95.05%.
Stash of the Titans – When we first discovered the Stash of the Titans slot game we liked the look and way it played, however this multi line and multi stake slot is not as attractive as it looks to play when you discover that its payout percentage is lower than average, and the RTP is just 95.07%.
Even though that RTP is way higher than most slot games found at casinos using different software providers’ games, with Microgaming having hundreds of slots on offer, and with players wanting the maximum winning opportunities, then this is yet another slot you should avoid playing.
Venetian Rose – One final slot game that you will come across when logged into a Microgaming powered casino is the 25 payline, 5 video reel slot game that goes by the name of the Venetian Rose slot. This slot has a modest 3000 coin jackpot and when playing it a set of 10 free spins on x3 multipliers can be triggered.
This slot games RTP is just 95.08% and with Microgaming having dozens and dozens of 25 payline slots available you are best advised to look for another slot to play and one that does not have such a low payout percentage.
