Ruby of the Nile is a new MicroGaming slot released on February 7th, 2011. It features 20 paylines, double wild and triple wild symbols, and up to 20 free spins with all wins doubled.
When I first played this slot I kind of wrote it off and wasn’t going to bother playing it enough to write a review, but it started to grow on me after a while. It’s a fairly high variance slot, meaning decent wins don’t come very often, but when they do, they make up for all the crappy spins. What I like about it is the fact that all the highest paying symbols pay as left-to-right scatters, so they don’t have to line up on a payline.
A random number of Free Spins are awarded when the treasure chest symbol lands on the middle of the 5th reel. You are given up to 20 free spins, I’m not sure what the least amount is, but the lowest I have seen is 8. All wins during free spins are doubled, and the feature can be retriggered.
The Wild Symbols and high paying scatters are what makes this slot decent. The usual symbols of 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A all pay on the 20 paylines, but the higher paying symbols pay as left-to-right scatters. If you can get a few wilds to land with one of those symbols, the payout can be huge, and it has saved me a few times now when my balance was almost wiped out. See the screenshots below for paytable information.
