How online casino games work - RTP, house edge & random number generators explained
When you play casino games, you may see references to the “house edge” or the “return-to-player (RTP)” rates. These are references to the probabilities that are built into the game and they are expressed as percentages. However, they are calculated slightly differently so it’s important to understand the difference.
With RTP, as the name suggests, is the rate of which a player can theoretically expect to see their wagers returned to them. For example, if a player bets €100 on a slot game with a theoretical RTP rate of 92%, it would suggest they’d have €92 left.
It’s not quite this simple though because there is variance. Some players will win more, others will win less, that’s the entire point of a slot machine and it’s why they’re so exhilarating.
The RTP rate is calculated over a very long period, often in the tens of millions of plays. On this scale, the return would average out to the expected 92% shown for the game.
Generally, you only see RTP shown for slots. For table games, we generally use the house edge to explain the probabilities. While this is also expressed as a percentage, the figure is also much smaller because it demonstrates the amount the house (the casino) will keep, on average, from bets.
This edge is usually very small. In European roulette, it is just 2.7% while in blackjack, it can go as low as 0.5% if you have the right strategy. With a house edge of 0.5%, a player would receive an average of €99.50 back from every €100 they bet, though, like with RTP this is only theoretical and some players will win more, and some will win less.
To ensure complete fairness and that the RTP rates and house edges remain consistent, we use a random number generator. This is an audited computerized algorithm that ensures complete fairness and prevents games from being manipulated.
So when you play our casino games, you can rest assured that you’re in safe hands.
Types of online casino games
Here at Wildz, we offer one of the broadest ranges of casino games you can find. We are confident that you’ll find plenty of titles that you’ll love to play. We have hundreds of different games, but they can be categorized into these different groups.
We are all familiar with slot machines. Even if you haven’t played any in person, you’ve definitely seen them in the movies and on TV. Online slots take these games to the next level by adding exciting new features, multiple paylines, and great bonuses.
You’ll find hundreds of differently-themed video slots in our catalogue, ranging from Greek mythology to popular TV shows.
Online jackpot games
Jackpot games are usually slots that add an extra level of excitement. In addition to the usual payouts that a game will offer, the jackpot is an additional prize that could payout at any point in the game. Usually, they are won by landing on a certain combination of symbols or in a bonus round.
Some jackpot games even include a progressive feature that slowly increases the size of the jackpot until it finally pays out. This is an incredibly popular option among players as it means that the jackpots can reach eye-watering sums before they hit.
Blackjack is one of the world’s most popular card games. Its popularity comes from the fact that it’s simple enough for new players to understand but allows experienced players to try out a near-infinite number of different strategies.
The goal is to make a hand of 21, or as close to it as possible without going bust (over). When you play online blackjack, you’ll notice that there are several different variants, each offering something unique, such as multiple hands, side bets, or extra decks in the shoe.
Roulette is another incredibly popular casino game. It originated in France several hundred years ago but has since become a staple around the world. As with blackjack, you’ll find multiple variants of online roulette, though they all contain the same basic mechanics.
When you play roulette, the dealer will spin a wheel and a ball in opposite directions. Your task is to predict which of the wheel’s pockets the ball will land in when they stop. You can either choose an individual number, a color, or a group of numbers, with each offering a different payout.
In addition to blackjack, there are other fun and exciting casino games that involve cards. The two most popular choices are baccarat and casino poker. These are both games that are played against the house and involve you trying to make a stronger hand than the dealer.
While in blackjack, your aim is to make 21, in baccarat it’s 9. In contrast, casino poker games don’t focus on the value of the hand but on the combination of cards that you hold.
If you’re new to playing casino games, it’s a good idea to try out the different card games to see which ones are your favourites.
Live dealer games
Another popular category among Wildz players is live dealer games. These are similar to online table games in many ways, except they replace the computer-generated depictions of cards, tables, and wheels and replace them with a video feed of a human dealer.
This dealer will spin the roulette wheel, deal the cards, and tell you when and when not to place your bets, just as they would in a land-based casino.
You’ll find a very wide range of gaming options, including many new variants of table games, as well as entirely new titles like Sweet Bonanza Candy Land and Mega Wheel.
What are online casino bonuses?

- Deposit bonus - A bonus that matches the amount you deposit to your account
- Reload bonus - A deposit bonus for existing players
