Australia – Light & Wonder’s Lightning Box launches Ritual RespinsBy Phil - 13 March 2023
Specialist slot provider Lightning Box, one of Light & Wonder’s in-house studios, has released Ritual Respins a title filled with mysticism and exciting magical mechanics.
Ritual Respins will initially be made available across Europe for two weeks exclusively with Paddy Power Betfair before being released across all partners thereafter.
This 5×3 reeled slot features symbols depicting tomes, skulls and potions emphasising the title’s supernatural aesthetic. These must form a matching combination across the slot’s 243 winning ways to award a win.
A wild symbol aids players in creating these wins substituting all symbols in the game except for the free spin awarding scatters. At least three of these scatters are needed to gain access to the Respins round and award five Respins.
However, landing two scatters in the base game can unlock a second chance respin. Here all symbols are removed from play except the scatters with a spin triggering which can grant the third bonus symbol and unlock the Respins round.
In the bonus, each scatter awards an instant cash prize with every additional scatter retriggering the five respins. A chest symbol can also land during the bonus which accumulates all instant cash prizes previously awarded, increasing the winning potential of the slot.
The game is available to customers of Light & Wonder’s industry-leading OpenGaming platform alongside popular new titles such as Blood and Gold and Chicken Fox JR.
Michael Maokhamphiou, Operations Manager at Lightning Box said: “Creating titles with a strong theme is key to acquiring new players and innovative game mechanics aid in retaining them. Ritual Respins perfectly integrates both aspects to deliver a slot that will be adored by players.
“The slot’s base game offers excitement through a second chance respin feature and the bonus builds upon this concept, integrating a respin mechanic that can be the key to unlocking the slot’s big win potential.”
Rob Procter, VP Game Development at Light & Wonder, said: “Lightning Box have delivered a magical game with strong attention to detail. The main protagonist is situated to the side of the game board conjuring a spell whilst the action itself takes place in an immersive candle-lit aesthetic boosting player engagement. These design elements in conjunction with revolutionary game mechanics create an unbeatable arcane adventure.”
