Winning isn’t everything when it comes to mobile slots – you should be looking to have fun, and find games which suit your style of play. But no one wants to put themselves at a disadvantage, which is why it’s advisable to only play slots which are unlikely to bleed you dry. One of the best ways to ensure you’re getting a good deal is to stay on the lookout for mobile slots with high return to player rates. In this post, we’ll run down some of the slots with the highest return to player rates from one of our favourite developers – Microgaming.
Wild Orient Mobile Slot – 97.5%
This 5 reel slot features an astonishing 243 ways to win, which goes some way to contextualising the abnormally high return to player rate that sticks this slot right at the top of this list. It’s not just the high chances of winning that make Wild Orient attractive, though. Firstly, you just have to look at the slot to be draw to its beautifully rendered depictions of wild and exotic animals, as it take you on a jungle safari in the bamboo forests of some unspecified Asian land.
Then we have the bonus features. On top of being able to take advantage of multipliers, extra spins, wilds and scatters, there’s a unique feature tied into the Wild Orient slot from Microgaming which allows you to respin individual reels, in the hopes of turning an unprofitable spin into a winning one. Wild Orient allows wagers ranging from 25p all the way up to £125, so despite not being ideal for the very high rollers, there’s still a broad appeal.
Retro Reels Extreme Heat Mobile Slot – 97.5%
Coming in second on our list of high return to player rate Microgaming slots is the surpringly fun Retro Reels Extreme Heat, which shares the same RTP rate as Wild Orient, but in our opinion is a slightly inferior game. This slot is part of the Retro Reels series, which as the name suggests, is a group of slots specifically designed to have a retro casino look, and appeal to players who are fan of old school gambling machine aesthetics.
Despite looking kind of old fashioned (with symbols including Lemon, Cherries, Sevens and Bars and Bells), the mechanics of Retro Reels Extreme Heat are bang up to date. The 5 reels contain 30 paylines, and despite keeping things relatively simple on the bonus feature front – presumably in order to stay true to the retro fruit machines of days gone by – Retro Reel Extreme Heat still manages to impress with wilds, extra spins and even re-spins on winning combinations.
MegaSpin High 5 Mobile Slot – 97.43%
MegaSpin High 5 is a pretty special game. Its basic game is based on the popular High 5 slot, which is a good few years old, and a Microgaming classic. It was the very first slot online which featured 5x – 25x multipliers, and gained a healthy cult following on the back of it. Later, Microgaming decided to revive the slot by mashing it up with the MegaSpin format, which took the High 5 base game, and allowed players to spin three, six or nine sets of reels at the same time, greatly increasing the chances of winning off a single spin.
The three reel setup of the basic game makes it popular with fans of the more retro style of slots, while the MegaSpin format brings a greater level of thrill and excitement to what is otherwise a relatively feature light slot. Of course, teaming the huge number of reels you could be playing with up to a 25x multiplier means there’s a winning potential of up to £15,000 on this high return to player rate Microgaming slot.
Jungle 7’s Mobile Slot – 97. 43%
You might see a kind of theme emerging when we tell you about the next slot in our countdown of the highest paying Microgaming slots. Jungle 7’s is a three reel slot with only a single payline, and is nothing if not heroically retro. The slot is set in the South American jungles, Jungle 7’s features Bars, Aztec Wheels, and of course Stone 7s. The theme is necessarily a pretty basic one, given the lack of complexity in the slot, but the game is still distinctive.
There are a couple departures from the ‘classic’ slots format in Jungle 7’s, but only in such a way as to improve the game overall. You’ll notice that – although there are no real bonus rounds or extra spins – you will find wilds and multipliers hidden among the reels, which are part of the reason there’s such a high RTP rate on this game. If you like classic slots and want one with a jungle theme, look no further.
Mad Dash Mobile Slot – 97.1%
Mad Dash is kind of a long joke with no punchline. Basically, the titular mad dash is played out onscreen by a tortoise and a hare racing, only instead of running a race as in the fable, these two characters are kitted out with quad bikes and their race is one over rough terrain. How does this all play into a slot – you may wonder – well, the characters are high paying symbols in the slot, while a trophy symbol features as a scatter.
Though Mad Dash has the lowest return to player rate of any of these Microgaming slots, there’s a strong argument to be made for it being the most exciting. The winning potential may be marginally lower than on the other games, but this one features a race mini-game, as well as the chance to land up to 25 extra spins! It’s just another one of many great high paying slots from Microgaming.
