Ruby – Casino Queen is a breath of fresh air from Microgaming and we were happy to play it. Today, there seems to be more video slots than stars in the sky and with each passing month, they seem to be getting further and further from their roots. We are happy to report that is not the case with this title. Ruby – Casino Queen takes players back the days of brick and mortar in style.

About

The theme of this slot should remind you of the casino experience but not in an old-school sense. The dark colours with bejewelled icons and 3-reel-high special symbols feel like they were taken out of a Las Vegas casino that never quite existed.

The slot features respins and free spins, sticky wilds and multiplier sticky wilds, as well as wild substitution. It also has a healthy RTP of 96.03%, and everything takes place on a fairly classic 5-reel, 3-row reel setup.

Wilds

Microgaming is loving the Wilds these days, and that is a fact that can be seen with all their newer slots. Ruby – Casino Queen is no exception. In this slot, you’ll find three different types of Wilds that have been included to enrich your game.

 The Regular Wild is the only one that you’ll see in the base game, while the other two – Sticky Wild and Multiplier Sticky Wild – are the only ones available in the Free Spins mode.

Re-Spins

Re-spins shouldn’t be confused with Free Spins. We know it sounds similar, but they are completely different things. To activate Re-spins all that is required is to land two scatters on reels 2-4 at the same time. When that happens, the reels that have the scatters are held in place and the remaining reel spins, hopefully, to bring you an additional winning combination.

Free Spins

The Free Spins in Ruby – Casino Queen are quite exciting. Triggered by at least 3 of the game’s scatter symbols, the player is granted 9 Free Spins. If there is a Scatter symbol on reel 3 when the Free Spins round is activated, it turns itself into a Sticky Wild that stays on the reels for the entire 9-spin round. In addition to that, any Wild that lands on the reels during Free Spins stays put as well. It is an exciting feature since the entire reels could, potentially, become Wilds!

Right off the bat, the player is given a 2x multiplier that adds a nice chunk of change to whatever winnings come your way as a result of the spins. Then, whenever a Multiplier Sticky Wild lands, the multiplier increases. There is, unfortunately, a cap on how the multiplier can get, and that is set at 6x.

Final Thoughts

Ruby – Casino Queen is a fun-filled slot with a lot of winning potential. We really like the nod to the brick and mortar casino culture and the classy design. Of course, the healthy RTP is also a nice touch. If you are looking for a new slot experience, Ruby – Casino Queen is a great choice.
