This slot looks rich in color and format, so could it offer some big chances to secure a few prizes as well? We shall see, just as we shall figure out who Ruby is, and whether she works at a casino. We guess the title reveals a little of what to expect, but is this game going to live up to our expectations?
The game is one of the more recent releases to try, so it may be a new one to you. You can expect plenty of rich colors here for sure – something we like to see in every slot game. Does it have a casino theme, though? We are going to find out.
This one comes from Microgaming, and since they already have an excellent slot game pedigree, we have positive hopes for this one as well.
No player wants to risk their cash on a game they may not like. That’s why it makes sense to try a game before playing it with your budget, especially if you’ve never seen it before. Microgaming has delivered a practice version of the game, so you’re good to go if you want to try that.
Yes, we are in casino territory, of course, and this is borne out by some of the icons you might see during play. Perhaps the most appealing element of the game is the richness of the design though.
The Ruby Casino Queen online slot is one that is small on background and big on the actual game. We rather like that, and it does work well in this case. Expect plenty of color in this one, with red, green, purple, and gold appearing all over the place.
The wilds – yes, we get more than one – are good to find in this slot game. The basic wild appears in the base game, but there are two others that can show up during free games. The first is a multiplier sticky wild – we love the sound of that – and the second is a regular sticky wild. Sticky means they remain where they are when they appear. We guess you can figure out the multiplier part. Base game wilds can be stacked, appearing either fully on a reel or partially in view.
There is a scatter too, and this is shown as a FREE SPINS message against a red background. The wilds also appear as that word,
We get five large reels appearing on the screen during play. This is good to see, especially if you’re playing on a smartphone or tablet.
There are 20 in play in this game.
You can do this quite easily using the game controls. Bets start from just 10 cents per spin and go to a maximum of $50.
We would always advise this, especially in a game with unusual rules as this one has. When you have read the paytable, you’ll understand how everything should work.
We’ve mentioned the roles of the wilds and we are about to get on to the free spins as well. Aside from those elements, and a Second Chance spin for the free games, no additional bonus is given.
As you might guess, you need three of those scattered FREE SPINS icons to do this. However, if only two appear in a spin, you get a free re-spin to see if you can trigger a third one to appear. In this case, the original two icons remain in position and everything else goes through the re-spin.
You get nine free games from this feature, with those sticky wilds involved too. The multiplier wilds start at 2x and could progress up to 6x depending on your progress. The more multiplier wilds appear, the higher the value goes, and since all wilds remain on the screen, the potential is there to scoop multiple prizes in this game.
You could also secure three free games if you manage to find wilds on every reel of the game, so that’s another way to enjoy more freebies.
This game has a generous RTP of 96.03%.
We couldn’t review this with any less than 8 out of 10 as our rating. It won’t have enough to appeal to every player, but we could say that of every slot game, right?
There are no progressives in this slot, but the Ruby Casino Queen herself has the power to grant the biggest prize. We hope to hear of someone managing to get 20x their stake for finding five queens on a live payline.
There is no risk to your budget if you decide to play this game as a demo only. We’d advise it prior to doing anything else, for sure.
Are you already a member of a Microgaming online casino? If so, you should find this recent release ready to play there. It’s appealing to most budgets, thanks to that 10-cent minimum.
Android users and those with iPads or iPhones should find everything they need when enjoying this game on the go. Ruby Casino Queen is worth a try at the very least.
