The House Edge/RTP of the Genii slots games is sometimes listed within the paytable for the newer games in their catalogue.

As such we know that the house edge for Siren’s Song is 4.2%.

Siren’s Serenade is a slots game based on the Greek myths that tell the tales of beautiful but deadly women who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and singing voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island. These terrifying beauties are the focal point of a game that sees Genii starting to pull together some good looking work. Whilst this game could look better, it is clearly a huge improvement on some of their earlier offerings and suggests that Genii could be on their way up. The theme is great, but I feel the features included fail to fully exploit it. There is no bonus game and we could use a few more animated sequences too. The house edge is above 4%, making it a fair bit higher than we like to see. All in all, this is a solid offering, but not one you’ll want to play for too long.
