Ruby Reels is a Microgaming pokie with a retro feel, a big jackpot and some huge variance. This is a fairly new pokie, but one that goes back to the golden age of slot machines, when games like this ruled arcades up and down the country.

Ruby Reels can be found on the best Microgaming casinos, including Jackpot City, where you’ll also find a long list of other retro pokies.


There is a glittering ruby theme, with a stark red backdrop and a ruby that acts as the game’s biggest symbol. In fact, you can win the game’s jackpot by filling the game’s only payline with these rubies. There are three reels in total and there are also a limited number of symbols, so big wins are more common here than they are on bigger pokies that have a little more going on.

That’s the main reason that players are drawn to these games, and the reason retro pokies like this still exist. However, if you prefer games with grand themes, big features and generally a lot more going on, then Ruby Reels is probably not for you.


There is a minimum bet of just $0.25 on this pokie, whilst the maximum bet is $25. There is only 1 payline, so you can’t pick and choose the lines that you play, and the amount of coins that you stake per line will affect the maximum return that you can get.

Bonus Rounds

There are no bonus rounds on Ruby Reels, which is so often the case with retro 3 reel pokies like this, simply because there is no room for them or for any scatter symbols.


Ruby Reels is good, if you like this sort of thing. It will appeal to old-school and retro fans, but those who prefer the newer generation of bonus pokies will not get much from this.
