The Non GamStop casinos community on YouTube is remarkably large. There seems to be a great demand for watching other players play the video slots. In this respect, the channels certainly have their right to exist. If you enjoy it, you should watch the videos quietly.
Of course, this begs the question, why are there so many non GamStop casinos videos on YouTube? Why is money being deliberately burned here? Certainly, several factors need to be addressed here. As mentioned in the business model section, YouTube ad revenue may not be the only source of income. The income from the affiliate links can exceed the YouTube advertising revenue many times over, so the videos only serve to attract users in the hope that they will then sign up in casinos via affiliate links, for example.
Are YouTube Non GamStop Casinos Videos Fake?
A thesis is also discussed again and again when dealing with the topic of Spielo videos: “The videos are fake!”.
At least some video producers assume (we have already touched on this above) that they are not real gamers at all but run a game library themselves.
Basically, playing risk-free on your own machines and being able to deliver particularly “spectacular” winning sequences.
We cannot conclusively judge whether this is actually the case. Still, the possibility should be kept in mind when the high stakes return to the next video.
Another conceivable variant is, of course, that the video producer is simply an enthusiastic gamer and co-finances his “hobby” with the videos or reduces the losses that his hobby inevitably entails.
Payout Ratios in Comparison – Return to Player in Land Based Casinos & Non GamStop Casinos
Since we have repeatedly referred to the payout percentages in arcades in the article, we want to give you the comparable values in online casinos so that you can classify the information correctly.
As mentioned above, there was a legal standard in Germany that stipulated the payout rate – also known as return to player (RTP) – of slots in land based casinos is at least 60%. Even after the mentioned legal change and the introduction of the value “maxloss per hour”, the RTP value in casinos not on GamStop is probably around 60%.
The comparable payout percentages in casinos not on GamStop are significantly higher. As a rule, the RTP value for slot machines is well over 90%, sometimes even up to 98%. We have already created an overview of the slots with the highest payout percentages for you.
Why Are Online Casino Payout Percentages So Much Higher?
Are you wondering why the payout percentages in non GamStop casinos can be so much higher than in the arcade? The answer is easy to find: it’s the fixed costs in relation to the size of the customer base. Of course, the online casinos do not have to pay a monthly room rent and also no personnel costs for the on-site customer care. This incurs costs for server operation, technical support and online support for customers. The fixed costs will, therefore, initially be higher in the online casino than in the individual game library.
However, the land based casinos have the problem that they have to cover their fixed costs with a spatially limited customer base. A few hundred, maybe even a few thousand customers have to cover the operating costs in order to make a profit.
The online casinos are not spatially limited, so they win their customers worldwide. So the customer base is in the hundreds of thousands, if not millions. The proportion of the fixed costs that have to be generated with each individual player is therefore negligible. Accordingly, the online casinos can pay out a larger percentage of the stakes back to the customers and still remain profitable.
We hope that with this blog post, we were able to explain to you how video games in the non GamStop casino work. This article is part of an initial three-part blog series on slots tips and tricks.
