Launched in 2003, Ruby Fortune Casino is yet another casino that is part of the Palace Group who successfully operates the likes of Spin Palace and Mummy's Gold casinos. Being a player at these Microgaming powered casinos and having dealt with this group for a number of years, I have come to take for granted that any casino run by them can only be a pleasure to play at and Ruby Fortune Casino is no exception.
Ruby Fortune Casino does have a very different look and feel to the other casinos in the group and from the design and layout seems to cater as much for the table games player as the slots player. The site is well designed with the contrast of red and black color scheme being used very effectively and all the information you need at your fingertips. And as with the other casinos in the group, Ruby Fortune has some excellent promotions on offer.
Every month Ruby Fortune casino gives you the opportunity to win extra cash and even more great prizes through the competitions and promotions published in their Newsletters. I have been on the receiving end of these for some time now and they really do make playing here quite exciting and keep you checking your mailbox for more! Another great thing about Ruby Fortune Casino is there loyalty program.
Ruby Fortune Casino has a good loyalty program that rewards play with cash back bonuses. Basically, as a member of the Loyalty Club, you earn points as you play and these can be redeemed for free casino credits.
It works like this: for every $10 you wager at Ruby Fortune, you will earn 1 Loyalty Club Point. For every 1,000 Loyalty Points, you will receive $10 in free casino credits. The great thing is that as a new member you will receive 500 free points to get you started and as you go you can earn additional bonus points depending on the number of Loyalty Club Points you earn each month.
There are also exclusive monthly promotions on selected games where you can earn double, triple of more points which will earn you more rewards. Now let's look at getting started.
Download and Registration
Already having the software on my desktop there was no need to download it. However, if you've never played at Ruby Fortune you have two options, you can either play on the Instant Play Flash version of the casino or you can play on the download version which has a considerably larger selection of games.
Downloading Ruby Fortune Casino is very easy, with the user simply having to click a link on the website to activate the 3.38mb download. With the download being so small, it should take no longer than around 20 minutes, even on a dial-up connection. Thereafter all you have to do is follow the step-by-step registration guides and you'll be ready to get started in no time!
Already having an existing player account at Rugby Fortune, I logged in to it with my username and password and then headed directly to the cashier.
Financial transactions at Ruby Fortune Casino are safe, simple and secure. The casino makes use of a military grade encryption system which ensures that your money is always safe and secure and that you can enjoy your play at the casino with complete peace of mind.
Currently the casino offers the following deposit options: Credit Card, eCheck, Neteller, Click2Pay, FirePay, Instadebit, Citadel, PaySpark, Moneybookers, UseMyBank, Delta Card, ECO Card and Wire Transfer, although your place of residence may affect the options available.
As usual I opted for Neteller and deposited £50 (as they no longer accept US players), my account was credited immediately and feeling rather lucky it was off to the casino!
Ruby Fortune casino has over 186 games for you to choose from, including over 120 Slots, a large selection of Video Pokers, Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, Craps and several jackpots like Major Millions which regularly exceeds $1,000,000.
Powered by Microgaming on the Viper software you will not only enjoy outstanding graphics but features like ‘Auto Play' that allows you to select the number of hands or spins to play and then plays them for you flawlessly and ‘Expert Mode' that allows the software to automatically play the best strategy and prompt you if you've made a mathematically unsound decision.
I decided to kick my play at Ruby Fortune Casino off at the Blackjack tables of which there are many variations to choose from. I chose Atlantic City Blackjack and had some very good hands in the beginning but shortly thereafter my luck changed and I decided to move on to one of the newer Gold Series versions which are an improvement to the standard games of days gone by, with specific attention to detail and a more “real” feeling. I was luckier here and left the table to check out the other games with a smile on my face and an improved balance.
If you're a Table Games fan you're sure to find what you're looking for with everything from the usual Roulette, Craps, Baccarat and Poker tables to the more unusual variations of these as well as Sic Bo and Casino war. Personally, not being a fan of any of these games other than Roulette, I skipped over most and only had a few spins on the European Roulette wheel which is very lifelike and a lot of fun…but losing at it began to take its toll on my balance so I decided to move on to the Video Poker machines.
Once again, there are just so many versions to choose from with single hand as well as 4, 10, 50 and 100 play versions of each too! The multi-hand games are a lot of fun but you have to concentrate and they can get expensive when you're playing maximums on a 100 hands. I settled on the 10 play Deuces Wild and really had a great time finishing on a good note £100 up!
Next I moved on to the slots and as I mentioned earlier there are over 120 of these in the form of single and multi-line as well as Video Slots. I started off with the Megaspin slots and tried my luck at Flower Power, but Video Slots are definitely my favorite and so I gravitated towards these pretty quickly.
To my delight they had just added new games including 3 great new slots including Pharaoh’s Tomb, Flying Circus and Dog Father which all turned out to be loads of fun, but I have to say my favorite must be Pharaoh’s Tomb with its multiple bonus feature screens. It really is a great deal of fun and makes you feel like an Egyptologist making a phenomenal discovery!
After an entire afternoon of play my balance finally hit zero and so I had to fight the urge to refund my account and carry on. I left the casino feeling that I'd really had a good time
Ruby Fortune Casino offers 24/7 customer support via e-mail, telephone and Live Chat as well as an online feedback form. For the most part their team is quite responsive although sometimes it takes a while for them to get back to you. For anything urgent I would suggest calling them as this seems to be more effective than the other communication channels
Despite their support being slightly slow, all in all Ruby Fortune casino offers a great player experience superb games and ongoing promotional offerings available. With the attention to detail at this casino, players will find everything they need here and are sure to enjoy it just as much as I do. Two thumbs up!
