Can I determine what a casinos average payout is?

Attempting to calculate your chances of winning in an online casino can be challenging. Luckily, most online casinos these days are employing a tactic of transparency and therefore openly display their payout statistics in order to assist their customers in their gambling choices.

If a casino is reputable it will display a report somewhere on its website offering customers a chance to view their officially reported average payout as well as how they match up against their competitors.

Most licensed and certified online casinos are monitored by fair gaming auditors such as the GLI “Gaming Laboratories International” or eCOGRA, who test Casino sites and determine their average payout rates. You should be able to locate the report under the heading “Payout reviews by independent auditors,” which is usually located via a link at the bottom of the page.

Almost all online casinos advertise their payout percentage figures, whether it is on their website, in their emails, or on the TV. However, it is important to note that the average payout percentage is the payout of the casino games and not of the payout deposits the casino receives.

To put it simply, losses are based on wagering and not deposits. Payout percentage figures relate only to the money a player wagers; they do not at all relate to the money a player deposits in a game.

For example, if a casino is advertising a payout percentage of 95% they are stating that out of all of the money their players have collectively wagered, the games have therefore paid out 95% and held a 5% profit.

It is important to bear this in mind when attempting to calculate your potential winnings based on a casinos average payout.
