The Ruby is a classic 5 reel, 30 payline fruit machine from iSoftBet. The highlight here is the bonus wheel round where you can win cash prizes of up to 100 times your total stake, free spins or 1 of 3 jackpot prizes depending on where the pointer lands. Look out too for stacked wilds that can hit in the base game. Play on all devices from between 30p and £30 per spin.

The set up in The Ruby is pretty straightforward. On the reels you’ll see a selection of glossy looking fruity imagery. In order of value are bars, cherries, bells, sacks of coins, $ signs and lucky red 7s. The best standard symbol is the ruby which awards 2, 5 or 10 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. There’s also a wild. This replaces all other symbols bar the bonus and pays 20 times your stake for a 5 symbol combo. The wild is also central to the first feature we’ll look at.

Ruby on Fire feature – on any spin, any or all of reels 1, 3 and 5 can turn totally wild. Standard wilds can still hit on the other reels which can lead to some pretty spectacular combinations.

Bonus feature – you’ll get a spin of the wheel by landing 3 bonus symbols on the same spin. Depending on where the pointer lands, you’ll win 1 of the following prizes:

  • Ruby Jackpot – worth 833.34 times your total stake
  • Topaz Jackpot – worth 333.34 times your total stake
  • Cherry Jackpot – worth 166.67 times your total stake
  • Cash payout of up to 100 times your total stake
  • 10 free spins plus a cash payout of up to 5 times your total stake

If you land the Free Spins feature, they’re played on a new set of neon-style reels. A new symbol, The Ruby logo, joins the action here. When this special symbol hits, it can award an instant payout of up to 10 times your total stake, become a sticky wild for the rest of the feature or better still become an extended sticky wild.

We liked The Ruby – this slot certainly has its roots in an old school fruity. The design and features are nice and fresh though. The stacked wilds in the base game offer some decent potential and the bonus wheel can deliver some top action. If you like classic fruit machines that also deliver a good variety of extras, then The Ruby ticks all the right boxes. I also recommend you try some of iSoftBet’s other titles with Legend of Loki my personal favourite.
