|Founder(s)||The Palace Group Casinos|
Ruby Fortune is part of the CityViews Group, owned by Bayton Limited. This well-established group operates several major sites, such as Jackpot City and Spin Palace. The site enjoys the eCOGRA seal of approval and uses a lot of personal touches to make the brand friendly and welcoming few new players. This site is known for serving Australian players, but caters to several regions.
The site design is a rich purple, with a ruby logo. The site employs a lot of welcome text to make it more inviting, billing itself as a fair, easy, safe and fun casino. Touches like a signature on the About page help to support this aesthetic. Welcome bonuses, though generous, are kept relatively modest in line with this safe approach.
Ruby Fortune’s library of games is displayed on tiles, with a layout that may be familiar to players of sister sites like Jackpot City. There are useful category buttons for game types, popular games, favourites and mobile titles. There’s also a handy search function. The slots load into a fairly large window, appearing with a matching background, which looks great.
The top strip of the site stays in place to provide links to the account area and help.
Ruby Fortune uses only Microgaming slots and table games. This does reduce variety in comparison with multi-provider sites, but also results in a very unified set of games. The Microgaming catalogue is pretty large, with over 400 games on site, covering various themes.
Adventure Palace is a fun title with a casual fantasy feel, while Jungle Jim has great 3D animations. Movie fans will enjoy the Jurassic World slot, or there’s Game of Thrones based on the major TV show. Lost Vegas is a very popular zombie-themed Microgaming title, or Mega Moolah is perhaps their most famous progressive jackpot.
For casino games, players will find blackjack, roulette, craps, red dog and a few other games. There are nine roulette options including the unusual Spingo, plus around 30 blackjack variants. Vegas Strip offers a more exciting version of the game, or there are several video poker games.
The live dealer games at Ruby Fortune are provided by Evolution. The site presents them well, with instant access to blackjack, roulette, hold ‘em, stupid poker and more.
Once a game is chosen, the Evolution lobby loads which offers even more game types and varying stakes.
The games are very smooth, with impressive studios and full integration of virtual technology into the live stream. Players can access all the usual controls of a table game, along with statistics and settings.
Ruby Fortune can be viewed on most phone and tablets, using the browser to access the site’s main address. However, there are no apps for this site.
Mobile play should prove pretty good for most players, with the site being nicely condensed for the small screen. The layout can be manipulated with easy swipes and menus are expandable to save room. The main site’s branding is still used and a good portion of the games are available, with full mobile controls.
There is a live chat link on all pages here, with the system being easy to use and the team very quick to respond. There’s also the options of phone or email, with three regional phone lines. The support team is available 24/7.
The site also has an FAQ page, which could be easier to browse, but it covers all the main issues a new player might have.
This site has the eCOGRA mark, meaning that fairness and safety are checked by an independent body. The site also has a responsible gaming page, with links to helpful groups.
Ruby Fortune uses a pop-up cashier built into a panel. The system is very straightforward, using icons for each method and even links to help new players sign up to a method. Withdrawals start at 50 USD, but this may vary for different regions.
This site accepts a fair range of payment methods, including MasterCard and Visa credit and debit cards, Eco, EntroPay, iDebit, Skrill, Neteller, PayPal, Citadel and many more, dependent on the player’s region.
