RTP of Chase the Turkey Slot
Not the greatest rtp this game has a return to player of 94%.
While we thought the concept and theme of the game was nice it could be improved in our opinion. As a medium volatility slot the rtp is just barely at the level of games we f\refer to play. Were they to raise that even by 1% we would feel better about playing it more often. Sitting at just9 4% we may play it some but we frequent slot games at 95% and above more often.
Admittedly the “chase the turkey” feature was fun and can add to your winnings bottom line so it is a game worth trying a few spins on. The game is available at any Dragon Gaming casino.
