Introduction

Fair, easy, safe and fun. As its official tagline, those are some pretty hefty goals Ruby Fortune has set up for itself, and from our experience, successfully fulfils. This is done through a strong emphasis on user experience above all else, and an enforced commitment to providing you, the player, with top service every step of the way.

Bonuses and promotions

$750 the Ruby Fortune welcome bonus: GFood way to get good fortune started when you begin your journey of real money play. A comprehensive welcome package, it is divided across three separate deposits as follows:

  • 1st deposit – 100% match bonus up to $150
  • 2nd deposit – 50% match bonus up to $200
  • 3rd deposit – 25% match bonus up to $400

To qualify for the Ruby Fortune casino welcome bonus: you must make a minimum $20 deposit within 7 days of registering a real money account. Once you’ve claimed the bonus money, it must be wagered 50X before it can be withdrawn. Playthrough is 100% for all slots and casino games, 8% for table poker, roulette and most video poker games, and 0% for classic blackjack (amongst others).

The quality of the welcome bonus: When taken as a whole, is at best mediocre. True $750 is a decent total. But only one of the three deposit bonuses is for 100%, and the bulk of the bonus is awarded on the third deposit at a rate of just 25%. Plus, the playthrough requirements are fairly stringent, which makes it harder to clear than other online casino bonuses.

As for other promotions: These are not easily accessible on the site. More than that, at last check the only promotion listed under the ‘Promotions’ tab was the welcome bonus itself.

Loyalty Club: Which is the standard fare you’ll find at pretty much all online casinos these days. You know the drill. For every $10 you wager, you earn one Club Point. 1,000 Club Points can be redeemed for $10 in casino credits (note, not cash in this case). Additionally, collecting more points helps you climb the VIP tiers, for greater rewards and real-word gifts.

Games

Listed at 450+ games,: It’s not unfair to say that Ruby Fortune does not have the most expansive game offering that you’ll encounter online. In fact, for a Microgaming casino, it’s actually a bit on the low side. That being said, what it does offer is quite good, with a nice range of online slots, roulette, blackjack and video poker.

A section for live games: With just one live game listed (Live Casino Hold’em), all we can say is we’d like to see more.

Progressive jackpots, there are 12 available at any given time, which is very good in anyone’s books. Jackpot games include the Microgaming mega hit Mega Moolah slots as well as Major Millions, Treasure Nile, and King Cashalot to name but a few.

You can either download the Ruby Fortune software to your PC: Or if you prefer, log in direct to the website (an updated Flash program is required). Free games are always available, even before you create an account.

Mobile

As a web-based app: if you have an internet connection, then you have access to Ruby Fortune mobile. It’s as simple as that! iPhone, iPad, Android or Blackberry device – whatever your smartphone/tablet preference, you’re all set.

In addition to all the standard perks of Ruby Fortune play, and a long list of mobile games, you’ll also be treated to exclusive mobile promotions. Plus, with a wide range of mobile banking methods accepted (with digital encryption for super security), you’ll enjoy mobile safety and convenience in one.

Customer Support

Banking

Safety and security: Top priorities at Ruby Fortune, and this is perhaps most obvious when it comes to banking practices. In fact, on this end we’d say, thanks to cutting edge technologies and a stated commitment to your privacy, Ruby Fortune is a top choice for those who value data protection.

Canadians specifically: you’re well covered with a wide range of payment options – for both deposits and withdrawals specifically in CAD. These include major credit cards, debit cards, e-checks, and web wallet services. A minimum $20 deposit is required to get started. The maximum you can withdraw is $10,000 per day. Keep in mind, you can only make a withdrawal using the same method with which you made your deposit.

Conclusion

Truth be told, Ruby Fortune casino is a bit old-fashioned in terms of both substance and style, especially when you compare it to the competition. That being said, there’s something comforting in a taste of old-school entertainment. And while there aren’t the biggest of bonuses or most tremendous of game offerings on hand, there’s certainly enough on both fronts for a very decent overall gaming experience – especially if you’re the type of player who puts an emphasis on service.
