self-auditAs you are looking around our website you are going to come across many different slot game reviews, and listed upon many of them you will find the long term expected payout percentage that each slot game is going to return to players over the life time operation of that slot machine.

However, when it comes to actually self auditing your slot play to work out the payout percentage that you have achieved during one or more sessions played on any one slot, this can be quite difficult unless of course you know how to self audit your slot play.

Below is a quick glance guide which will show you in a step by step fashion how to work out the payout percentage you have achieved when playing any online slot machine for real money, don’t worry if you are not a Grade A maths student for anyone can audit their own slot play.

Wagered Amount

You will need to record every spin you play and the stakes you are playing each spin for. You are not required to keep track on any free spins that you may have triggered just each spin of the reels you made that actually cost you something to play that spin.

Credited Winnings

You will also need to record every single winning payout that was credited to your casino account during the session you are playing. Do not count any winnings that resulted in you losing them via a gamble game, just the physical and actual amount of cash that during your session ended up in your casino account.

Working Out Your RTP

To work out your actual payout percentage for any one session you played simply divide the credited winnings by the wagered amount. There are two results that you will get once you work out this mathematical equation, you may get a result that is lower than one in value such as for example 0.7435242 or a result that is above one in value such as 1.847643.

If the result of you dividing the credited winnings by the wagered amount is lower than one then remove the zero and the decimal point and the first two digits after the decimal point is the actual payout percentage for that session, and in our example that would be 74%.

However if the result is above one in value then remove the decimal point and the first three digits then become your payout percentage for that session, and in our example above this is 184%.

If you have a slot playing session that results in your payout percentage for that session being over 100% then you have ended up in profit, however anything less than 100% will see you making a loss for that session.

Have a good look at some of our slot game reviews dotted around our website for you will find listed on many of them the long term expected payout percentages that those listed slot games are going to payout and the higher the payout percentages the more attractive those slots are to play.
