What do casinos mean when they say they have a 97.5 % payout?

This is the percentage which on average gets paid back to the players. It is a figure which is based on all players and games. This means, of course, that it is not an indication of how much you can expect to get back. Different games have different pay-out percentages.

In our list you can see the average payouts of all the casinos that we have reviewed. Many have a payout of 95-98%. This is comparable to the Swedish betting firm ATG, for example, which has around 80% (but has applied to raise it to 84%).
