Ruby Slots summarizes her fast-growing slots channel in three words: “I play slots.” While this premise might seem rather boring, her gameplay videos are anything but – she mixes things up on a regular basis with personal tricks, massive jackpot handpays, and engaging commentary. 

Although “Ruby Slots” isn’t her first channel to dominate the YouTube rankings, she’s making headway at a rapid pace. Since February 2020, she’s been hard at work filming her expeditions at nearly every casino in Las Vegas: her channel has earned 38.3M+ views across 619+ videos

We’re not sure if her established online presence has anything to do with this, but she’s already accumulated 79k+ subscribers and counting. When she’s not busy filming her experiences with Sin City’s hottest slots, you can find her posting travel-related content on her other YT channel. 

Ruby Slots Quick Facts

  • Ruby Slots also goes by the nickname Travel Ruby, and her gameplay channel pales in comparison to the popularity of her main travel channel. She got her footing on YouTube in May 2015. She’s since earned 293k+ subscribers and 65M+ views across 329 videos.
  • Ruby Slots’ real name is difficult to come by, but Internet sleuths have determined that Elyse Shultz runs the popular Travel Ruby YouTube channel. She and her husband, who’s affectionately known as Mr. Ruby, relocated to Las Vegas from Milwaukee, WI.
  • Ruby Slots has a little-known merch website linked to her personal blog! She markets tank tops, T-shirts, pullover hoodies, crewneck sweatshirts, coffee mugs, and leggings with slogans like “Vegas Bound,” “Catch Flights Not Feelings,” and “Shots N’ Slots.”
  • Ruby Slots’ Patreon is free to join, but subscribing for just $5/month gives you access to exclusive updates. Becoming an official patron for $10 per month (toast, anyone?) unlocks access to unreleased video footage, IG pics, and bloopers that didn’t make it.
  • If you ever get a hankering to play the same slots featured on Ruby’s channel, she offers travel tips and mistakes to avoid when navigating the mean streets of Las Vegas. Before you decide to replicate her lifestyle and live there yourself, check out the inside scoop.

Channel Highlights 

Most Popular Video: How to TAKE ADVANTAGE of Another Player’s Slot Machine and WIN BIG! 🤫

Ruby Slots’ most popular video was published on January 15th, 2023! She’s gotten 556k+ views at the time of writing, and we’ll be back to update this piece when her view count inevitably goes through the roof. 

She shows her audience how to time huge slots bonuses by picking up where other players left off. She further explains that each bonus must be triggered after a certain number of coins have been collected! Then, she puts her mathematical prowess to the test on the Golden Beasts slot. 

Eleven minutes of exciting and informative gameplay (most of which was free) proved her point. 

SlotsFan Ranking

At the time of this publishing, Ruby Slots ranks 19th out of over 120 slots influencers in our database. To see where Ruby Slots ranks now, check out the latest version of the SlotsFan Slots Influencer Rankings. She’s topping the charts with 18,200+ subscribers since October.

Schedule: New Videos 

Ruby Slots doesn’t outline a consistent schedule, but she publishes a new video every single day. If you want to be the first to see her newest content, she tends to upload between 10 AM and 5 PM. Since her first video was published on Sep. 17th 2022, she hasn’t skipped a day.  

In fact, she’s about 119 videos ahead of schedule – when she hits a big win or has something of particular importance to share, Ruby Slots isn’t afraid to post multiple times per day. You might struggle to keep up with all her new stuff eventually, so be sure to stay on top of her Facebook. 

With a meager 36.7k+ followers by comparison, her TikTok page receives slightly less attention. Still, that’s where viewers can find her biggest wins condensed into ten-second highlight reels.

Origin Story

Ruby Slots might spend the bulk of her time at Sin City’s most popular casinos, but she’s never been a one-trick pony. She got her foot in the door and began to build her online presence with her original YouTube channel (@TravelRuby) back in 2015. 

In between dishing out travel tips, rating Vegas’ best restaurants & issuing hotel reviews, she’d occasionally film her and her husband having fun in the high-limit room. Still, she didn’t make  her gameplay content a priority until she launched her slots-focused YouTube channel in 2020. 

Crazier still, her oldest video published to @RubySlots received 82k+ views off the bat. While she’d been generating traction on her fledgling slots channel for the better part of 2 years, she didn’t get around to uploading any content until September of 2022. 

Fast-forwarding to 2024, she’s growing her presence as a slots influencer exponentially – since October of last year, a staggering 18.2k+ subscribers have begun watching Ruby’s every move. 

If she keeps up her current trajectory, it won’t be very long before she’s competing with the likes of Brian Christopher and NGSlots
