Online fruit machines startled online casino players with huge profits!

How you ever wondered how much money an online casino makes? If you don’t know much about how online casino fruit machines work, you might assume that the casino takes a big chunk of the money being played or wagered on these games. The truth of the matter is quite the opposite. Online casinos don’t make that much money per wager (at least honest casinos don’t). An online fruit machine such as the classic 7’s and Bars has a standard pay-out rate of 95% at Superior Casino. That implies that over the long run, the casino is only making 5% of the wagers or bets placed on that fruit machine.

5% is not that much now that you see it in percentages. But that’s not the end of the story. Online casinos give out a lot of promotion money, often double what they receive in real money deposits. That produces a lot of wagers in the games that comes from this “virtual” or fictitious money (from the casino point of view, the money is not real, i.e., it’s not real profit). So, of a fruit machine is generating only 5% revenue for the casino but half of that is promotion money, then the casino only sees around 2.5% of every wager (on average). What happens when the fruit machines pays out over 100% of the bets received? Well, the casino actually loses money!

And guess what, this does happen! Superior Casino has the habit of publishing their top games of the month here on this blog. This month we discovered that quite a few casino games and fruit machines were over the 100% mark, meaning that a lot of players took out profits from our casino. That’s how it should be because other games may be below the average payout rate, and therefore it balances it out. But when a game has over 100%, that means players got quite lucky and were able to cash out winnings.

Are you interested in knowing what those games were?
