RubyPlay unveils latest slot

RubyPlay has unveiled its latest slot title with the Chinese-themed He He Yang.

The 5-reel slot transports players to China where they encounter ancient treasures such as golden Jiaoqian coins, good luck symbols and more.

Ittai Zur, RubyPlay COO, said: “Everyone knows the prominence of Greek and Norse mythology in slot themes, particularly by the European game developers, but we felt that Chinese ancient mythology was maybe a little under-represented.

“This inspiration from the Far East has culminated in He He Yang. As usual, the game has a very land-based slot feel, and we’re confident people will enjoy playing it,” he added.
