Ruby Play may not be a software provider you are familiar with just yet, but they are aiming to change that with the New Year Happiness slot. The game was unveiled in March 2020 as a celebration of Chinese New Year. The first thing you should note about New Year Happiness is that it is a medium to highly volatile game, which doesn’t make it suitable for everyone. Stakes are nonetheless affordable in this 5-reel, 50-line slot, costing anything from a base minimum of 0.20 per spin, up to a capped maximum of 30.00 a game. As mentioned, the slot leans towards being highly volatile and has an RTP of 96.4%. Prizes are valuable (as you would expect in high variance releases), are non-progressive, and sit at the 5,000x a bet mark.
Much of the imagery which appears on the reels of this Ruby Play slot is relatively straightforward to grasp. There are a few added special symbols which can bring a bit of spice to the gameplay. Wild symbols can substitute for all standard paying symbols. Moreover, there are two kinds. The first is a basic wild, but the second is a prize enhancing wild. How do they come about, though?
Wild symbols can be collected during gameplay. The number of wilds accumulated will be displayed in the Wild Collection Meter above the reels. The game contains a Super Spin, and when a Super Spin occurs, the number of wild symbols shown in the Wild Collection Meter will be redistributed across the reels in random places as prize enhancing wilds. This will naturally result in impressive prizes. When players land wins with enhanced wilds one, two or three times, they will pocket wins worth 0.5x, 1x and 5x their total bet, respectively.
Players who land wins with enhanced wilds for the fourth time will trigger the slot’s Wheel Bonus. Having a spin on this multicoloured wheel will result in Mini, Minor, Major or Grand Jackpot prizes being out. These are worth the equivalent of 25x, 50x, 200x or 5,000x the total bet made by the player. Although non-progressive, these fixed jackpot prizes are still well worth aiming for.
As you will note, there aren’t any free spins in the game. However, triggering the Super Spin feature will often result in substantial wins, sometimes arguably more than you could win via the Wheel Bonus.
