Dispersion is one of the most important indicators of a gaming machine. If you pay attention only to RTP, this will not give you complete information about what to expect payments. After all, you will not know with what periodicity and how many slots are paid. And the variance says exactly this.
Slots with high dispersion are paid rarely, but if you’re lucky, you can win big money. Slots with a low variance are paid more often, but the amount is smaller.
If you consider all the slots of this developer, then the first lines in the list of the most highly dispersive will take slot machines with a progressive jackpot. The higher the average size of the jackpot, the higher the variance. That is, the leaders will be: Mega Fortune, Mega Fortune Dreams, Arabian Nights, Hall of Gods.
But if you exclude progressive jackpots, then among the most risky slots among the leaders will definitely be listed Dead or Alive. This slot machine has already become legendary. Many people play it knowing that one day they can lose a huge prize, even in the absence of a progressive jackpot.
The standard for determining high dispersion is when the payment for five identical symbols exceeds 10 times the payment for the same four symbols. For example, four aces – 10x, and five aces – 100x. In Dead or Alive, four scatters give 25 bets, and 5 skaters – 2,500, that is, 100 times superiority.
However, in the near future, Dead or Alive may cease to be an unconditional leader in this regard. August 23 NetEnt launches the first MAX version slot. MAX slots are twins of conventional slots, but with increased dispersion. It is already known that the maximum win of the first in this series Berry Burst MAX will be 6,000 bets. Next will be other games.
This slot machine is not so popular, but it also offers one of the highest variances among the NetEnt slots. It is assumed that it is significantly inferior to Dead or Alive in terms of variance, but stably goes after it. Reel Steal was released in 2008, and Dead or Alive a year later. Therefore visually they look already obsolete. So, if you have not played them before, do not expect anything special.
Another old game with high dispersion. They released Wild Rockets in 2012, so unlike Dead or Alive and Reel Steal, there are already more advanced features. Good winnings can be obtained from the five scatterers. This combination gives a multiplication rate of 200 plus 20 free spins.
It should also be noted that this slot offers 720 possible winning combinations, which can be formed from left to right and right to left. Also help to get big winnings expanding wild symbols.
The developer released this slot in 2017. He offers 243 winning combinations, the number of which increases to 1024 during frisin. The peculiarity of Jungle Spirit is that every character except the scatter can at any moment turn into a symbol expanding into the whole drum.
Another notable feature is that by activating free spins, players can choose how risky the round will be. The less the number of frisbines is chosen, the less chance of winning something, but the larger the prizes. The maximum payout during the base game is 1,825 bets. During the frisin, the amount is increased to 7,678 bets due to a greater number of winning combinations.
