A considerable number of adventure-themed slots which can be found on the internet typically have Indiana Jones inspired themes. It has worked for Novomatic with their Book of Ra slot, and it has paid dividends for Play ‘n Go with their Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead slot. Now, Kalamba Games are willing to give the genre a run for its money, with their new Ruby Hunter release.
Unveiled this week casinos, Ruby Hunter is not your generic Indiana Jones rip-off, though. Instead, Kalamba Games have decided to make their central character a woman for a start. There are also more than a few unique features appearing in this game which do not surface in rival developers’ similarly themed slots.
A New Medium-High Variance Slot
Ruby Hunter is not for the faint-hearted. The newly released slot is something of a medium to high variance game and one which will cost at least 60p a spin, and possibly up to £120 a game. It does have a decent RTP (return to player) rate of at least 96.6%, but that can rise with Hyper Bonuses.
There are 6 reels to the new release, with varying numbers of symbols sitting on those reels, alongside 3,600 paylines. The Hyper Bonus which alters the RTP rate is a purchasable upgrade, and one which raises the rate to 97.5%. It spans four levels, and can see players start with 8, 12, 15 or 20 free spins, but at costs which range from 45x up to 114x your stake.
Free Spins and Three Jackpots
There is another way to trigger the free spin bonus round in Ruby Hunter. This can be done by landing between 3 and 6 scatters on a spin. Between 8 and 20 spins are offered alongside scattered cash prize payouts. Wild symbols also appear in this game, and they can replace all barring scatters and jackpot icons.
During the free spin bonus, players have a slot of landing one of three jackpot prizes. These Silver, Gold and Platinum prizes are guaranteed to be worth at least 20x, 100x and 1,000x a bet. The amount a player can win varies based on their bet. Players need to land at least three jackpot icons to trigger a re-spin. They may then add more symbols to their tally during this re-spin (with jackpot icons frozen on the reels). The more jackpot icons a player lands on this re-spin, the larger the prize they can walk away with.
Where to Play Ruby Hunter This Month
Ruby Hunter won’t be receiving a widespread launch. Only a few casinos can offer Kalamba developed games, so players may have to scan around to find a suitable venue to try their hand at the new slot this week.
