Top 5 RTP Slots from Microgaming in 2021
One of the top slot developers in the iGaming sphere, and the first to release an online slot way back then, is Microgaming.
With its abundance of over 500 casino game titles, there are plenty that come with an above average theoretical RTP (return-to-player). When we say above average, we mean over 96%, which is the benchmark for video slot gaming. Now before you try to guess which slots have the highest RTP, we can tell you right now that it’s not the million Euro-Dollar WowPot or Mega Moolah slots. On the contrary, jackpot slots need to take a percentage of your bet to fund those mammoth payouts, which reduces the RTP.
Therefore, from million Euro-Dollar payouts, we are left with the million-dollar question. Which Microgaming slots have the highest RTP for 2021?
And here they are…
1. Retro Reels (97.5%)
Retro Reels is a golden oldie that still holds plenty of weight as a popular online casino title even in 2021. This slot lays claim to being the first Microgaming video slot to bring the ‘optional re-spins’ feature to the reels. So how does this work? Well, its base game RTP might be a bang on average 96.02%, but with its ‘Base Game with Re-spin’ feature, that brings the theoretical RTP right up to a mega 97.5%. Pretty amazing!
The re-spin feature is optional, giving you the chance to re-spin any of the 5 reels after a single spin. You will need to pay a set price, which is much lower than the minimum spin bet, and if a win comes in as a result, you are in the money. This slot has plenty more to rave about with its 440,000-coin jackpot win potential, up to 25 free spins with re-trigger and wins doubled, plus a scatter that pays up to 100x your spin bet.
2. Retro Reels Extreme Heat (97.5%)
The sequel to Retro Reels brings to the Microgaming video slot portfolio a slot that has a game RTP of 96.66% which is already high but improves when you take advantage of the ‘Base Game with Re-spin’ bringing it up to 97.5%. That additional re-spin option sure works wonders. This is a 30-pay line slot with a red hot fire theme that uses ‘$’ signs, fruits, bells, and red 7s to bring in the wins. Like its predecessor, you can land a 440,000-coin jackpot too. But what else makes this slot special?
You can win up to 20 free spins with all wins doubled and this free spins bonus has a re-trigger. There is a wild that doubles up as a combination and a scatter that multiplies your spin bet for 2, 3, 4, or 5 anywhere on the reels.
3. Wild Orient (97.49%)
Wild Orient is, you guessed it, an oriental themed slot. It is also famous for not only one of the first 243-ways-to-win no pay line video slots to hit the iGaming arena, but it was also the first 243-ways title to use the ‘optional re-spins’ feature also used by Retro Reels slot titles above.
With that in mind, this slot has a base game only RTP of 96.52% which is high, but where things get interesting is its ‘Base Game with Re-spin’ RTP which pulls in a monstrous 97.49%. Wild Orient also includes some tasty features with scatters that multiply your spin bet, and free spins with triple wins, plus re-triggers. With all these features packed together; you can rake in up to 60,000 coins.
4. Summer Holiday (97.14%)
The Summer Holiday online slot whisks you away to a lake setting using transparent reels with 100 pay lines and symbols that represent holiday activities. It’s a good-looking slot and comes with an attractive theoretical RTP of 97.14%. Features include a wild symbol, a pick a prize bonus in which you could end up replaying your free spins round or reveal a mystery prize, win up to 750,000 via a stacked wild, and you could land 2,250,000 if the free spins game with triple wins and the stacked wild covering all reel positions.
5. Immortal Romance (96.96%)
Microgaming’s most popular slot title of all time comes so close to the 97% RTP mark. This slot’s spooky theme, story line and sublime features have made it the number 1 slot for quite some time. In fact, it is so popular, it has also been added to the Mega Moolah collection - but be warned - the RTP drops to 86.75% if you want to vie for that multi-million Euro-Dollar win on the jackpot version.
It is easy to see why Immortal Romance is so popular and why its RTP is so high. It is a 243-ways-to-win slot with 4 Chamber of Spins bonus games that unlock as you plough through this bonus. Moreover, you could wind up with your combination wins multiplier 5x. Adding to this, Immortal Romance has a mega max win of 12,000x your bet which will trigger if all 5 reels turn into wild reels, the wild doubles all winning combinations it gets involved with, and there is a ‘Vine feature’ that could land you multiple wildcard symbols at any time.
