Microgaming’s Ruby Casino Queen Video Slot Review

Ruby Casino Queen is a hugely volatile game where you take a trip to a virtual brick and mortar casino. Created by Just For The Win and Microgaming, this 5 reel, 20 payline video slot comes with stacked high value symbols and stacked wilds. There’s also a bonus round that awards free spins complete with sticky wilds and multipliers that can send payouts rocketing by between 2x and 6x. Play this high variance game on your PC, tablet or mobile from between 10p and £50 per spin.

As you’d expect from a video slot with casino in its name, there’s a rather flashy look to the design here. As well as jewel-style playing card suits, you’ll see lucky 7s, diamonds and Ruby herself spinning around the reels. These latter 3 symbols can spin in stacked formation.

Ruby is the best paying symbol, awarding 1.5, 3 or 20 times your bet if you land 3, 4 or 5 on 1 of the game’s 20 paylines. Boosting your chances in the base game is the wild. This replaces all the standard symbols, can land fully stacked and offer payouts of 1.5, 3 or 20 times your stake.

The main feature is the Free Spins feature – if you get 2 Free Spins scatters, the Re-Spin feature comes into play to give you another shot of entering the main attraction. Anyway, land 3 Free Spins scatter symbols on the same spin and you’ll go on to play 9 free spins. The Free Spins symbol from the middle position of reel 3 on the triggering spin will turn into a sticky wild and lock in place for the whole of the feature.

Those free spins start with a 2x multiplier too. Joining the action during the feature are sticky wilds and multiplier sticky wilds. Each time a multiplier sticky wild appears, the multiplier increases by 1x. The maximum boost you’ll receive is 6x. Land a wild on all 5 reels and 3 extra free spins are added to your total.

Behind the glitzy façade, Ruby Casino Queen is actually a rather simple game. That’s no bad thing though. The Free Spins feature is where the big winning chances arise thanks to the extra wilds and multipliers that are in play. Be warned though, this is a high risk but potentially high reward video slot. The variance is very high with big swings in both directions possible. You can win 2,400 times your bet on each free spin with a total of 6,411 times your bet in the entire feature.

Just For The Win has made a pretty good attempt at trying to recreate the atmosphere of a high end brick and mortar casino. If you like volatile gameplay, then it’s worth arranging an audience with Ruby Casino Queen. Other Just For The Win/Microgaming collaborations worth trying include Temple of Tut and Rainbrew.
