Quick and Easy rubies
How am I supposed to wait 24 hours for a voyage to be completed and I don't have a good amount of rubies to speed things up. A lot of quests require rubies to complete them but still I don't have enough. Is there some kind of easy way to get rubies? I'm only a level 4-5.
Answer from: madd
I won rubies in mermaid slots. But I lost too. Play 2 ruby slots once in a while and try ur luck. I won 56 rubies in slots. But lost all of them and came down to 6 rubies in my inventory. I played this time cautiously and now I have 34... So I guess weight win some rubies by mermaid slots

The best way I have found so far to get Rubies for free is to advance to level 6, build up your economic resources as much as possible, and then stay on that level for a long time without expanding, spending your excess coin on the mermaid. I recommend purchasing the value pack at level five as this will help greatly with the economic base for this strategy to work.
I currently have a number of merchants maxed out as far as I can go for level 6. These include the cannon maker, the emerald mine and the sapphire mine and the rare rock quarry, but not the stone quarry. Theoretically, assuming i never sleep and always collect coins on time, this gives me a daily income of 170,960 coins (excluding houses). Obviously I do sleep, and don't always check the game so the actual figure is some what less, but you get the picture.
You will have noticed that some of the merchants I have required rubies. Apart from the 25 you get from the value pack I acquired these via the below method.
Build up as many extra coins as possible and spend them at The Undersea City with the mermaid!!!! The Undersea City at level 6 is relativity affordable at 1760 coins per spin. On average you will consistently loose coins by gambling on the mermaid, but you will generate an abundance of pearls and a modest amount of rubies. For example I spend approximately 42,000 on the Mermaid earlier today. this generated 34 rubies and approximately 2,000 pearls. If this is done two or three times per day, given a week or so you will have most of the the rubies you need to do what you want in this game. It just takes a bit of patience, and self control not to cut down unnecessary trees.
This could work on other levels, but the cost of the Mermaid rises sharply, making it less effective. I haven't gambling rubies much but i assume that gambling rubies could be much the same as gambling coins - on average you will loose.

Al, your right until you get to the part of gambling rubies. Chances increase(in my Expediance) when gambling rubies. I started with 12 rubies, after gambling 6 rubies I won 12. I continued doing this, and yes at times I lost; but I ended up with 132 rubies when the day was out. All that from 12 rubies. The only downside of this method is that you dot often get pearls. However, you get gold from doing the 6 rubies spins aswell. I did it when I was on level 6. I blew all my rubies on mearchants which wasnt the best idea. It's so much harder getting rubies from the other slots. Trust me, do the 6 rubies slots and you will get an abundance of rubeis as well as a decent amount of gold.

Tried they ruby slots with 16 rubies won a few but lost as well, you may have just gotten lucky, staying with coins is the safer option, I have all available at level 6 gem bought merchants excluding the chicken farm merchant. Only money I spent was on the level 5 booster pack, currently have 230 rubies (as well as all those i spent on the merchants to increase cash pool. I make about 130 gems a day with the under water city spins. I am planning on stopping at the 1000 ruby mark.

I got bored with the 176-per-spin game very quickly. I found that if you wait a bit longer and save more money, your odds are more or less the same with the 880-per-spin game, except you don't have to play it as often. Nagasi, how did you come up with the 1000 ruby mark?
Answer from: adrian
I'm new to the game and this is my strategy after i get to a new level i upgrade evrything and then im playing at the mermaid until i get something like 5k pearls and usualy i also get 25 rubys from the sunken ship slot and now i also get that dolphin free spin when i get it i usualy play at the diamond slots and i get like 3 -4 diamonds and im also trying to do evry q that gives me diamons that i can do with spending lesser diamonds that asks. For now im looking forward to see how it will be like in the higher levels
Answer from: Ccspetersen
@Adrian: how do you get the dolphin free spin?
Answer from: Hi!!!
In the silver supper spin which costs six rubies you will usually win six rubies so save your rubies and try the 176 coins spin, 550 coins spin or the 880 coins spin. Once you get a free spin I recommend using it on the 10 ruby spin which highest winning is 999 rubies. Hope this helped!!
Answer from: Weehawken Dave
The dolphin advances accross the bar with each spin it takes about 10 - 12 paid spins to reach 1 free spin
Answer from: Weehawken Dave
If you speak with the mirmaid repeatedly without playing You can select the cost of the spins ( ie 530 vs 2000+ coins Or 2 vs 6 rubies.) Do any levels provide better odds than others, Within each category, coin and rubie ?
Answer from: Jody
The odds don't change much spinning with more coins or less. You will lose whichever asset you put up. So put up coins to win rubies and pearls. I stayed at level 6 for 24 days to accumulate pearls and rubies. When i stopped i had 80,000 pearls and 5,000 rubies. Now I'm at level 18. I ran out of pearls a long time ago upgrading merchants. I still have 2,300 rubies. Spinning works but it takes a very very very long time. I wouldn't enjoy this game without the rubies so it was necessary.

Accidently chopped trees which brought me up to lvl 7 and a whopping 2650 coins for undersea city spin.grrr. nevertheless, all merchants maxed so i still generate enough $ to win approx 120-150 gems per day. i only play undersea city because each spin is equivalent to 5 kelp city spins so you generate more "stuff" per spin. i consistently win 25 rubies at least once or twice a day because i spin so often. I plan to stay at this lvl for a month or 3000 rubies, whichever comes first.
