Join the Ruby Casino Queen for a royal reel adventure on the slot from Just For The Win, exlusively created for Microgaming’s Quickfire platform. As to be expected after the release of Rockabilly Wolves, JFTW went straight in for a clone as their next production. All of their slots come in twins. Reel Talent and Icy Gems or Reel Splitter and Shogun of Time, each pair are absolutely identical games bar the graphics and soundtrack. It surely reduces the production cost but how long will it excite players to see clone after clone?
Either way, instead of travelling back to the 1950s we are now blessed with a ruby queen plus the same features. Fun fact, there is not a single ruby gem anywhere on the game. However, respins in the base game, as well as a free spins round with sticky wilds and progressive multipliers, can lead to wins of up to 2,400x on a free spin and 6,411x your bet for an entire bonus round.
Ruby Casino Queen is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 20 fixed pay lines. Wins are paid for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Playable on any desktop or mobile device, you can bet from 0.10 to 50 credits per spin. The high variance game has an RTP of 96.03%.
Purple drapes serve as the backdrop to a simplistic game window that gives you just like on Rockabilly Wolves an impression that there might be four rows on the centre reels. There is little in the entire design that impressed us or left us with a memorable vision. The card royals were replaced with the card suits at the low end, each paying 1.5x bet for a five of a kind.
Lavish items such as diamonds, golden sevens and the ruby casino queen feature on the high level, appearing fully stacked at all times. Pays for a 5OAK range from 6x to 20x your bet. A red drape with the word itself is the wild symbol, substituting for all symbols except scatters and also paying the same win as the queen symbol. During the free spins, wilds appear as single standard and multiplier wilds, both sticky. Scatters are an intricate icon marked with the words “Free Spins”.
The double teasers from Rockabilly Wolves have been included in the base game. Land only two scatters in one spin and you will enjoy a respin for a chance to hit the third. Only that it hardly ever does, so do not get your hopes up too high.
Either way, you will trigger 9 free spins with an x2 starting win multiplier when you do get three scatters on the middle reels, which again can’t be retriggered. However, the scatter on reel three will turn into a multiplier sticky wild that will be locked in place for the bonus round.
During the feature, the stacked wilds are replaced with standard and multiplier sticky wilds. Each landing will lock as well in place for the remaining free spins while the multiplier version increases the win multiplier by x1 for each occurrence, up to a maximum of x6. Should there be at least on sticky wild on each reel by the end of the round, you’ll get to enjoy three extra free spins.
To hit the top win of 2,400 times your stake you will need a full screen of wild symbols or in combination with ruby queen symbols and the x6 multiplier. According to JFTW, the overall win potential in the free spins peaks at 6,411x your bet. Good luck hitting that.
The release of the Ruby Casino Queen slot comes as no surprise as JFTW is known for clowning its creations at least once. Well, on a positive note players can choose now whether to spin the reels to 1950s tunes with cartoon characters or a more adult version with a dashing queen but with a less enjoyable soundtrack.
