The Blood & Shadows slot machine's Ritual Bar accumulation metre is uncommon in Nolimit City slots. There are several methods to advance the Ritual bar, including when winning combinations with medium or high payouts occur. No matter the sort, winning symbols are always eliminated from the board, allowing other symbols to fill in the gaps. Here, the high-paying symbols are five spooky-looking symbols, the middle-paying symbols are five less spooky-looking symbols, and the low-paying symbols are five occult-looking symbols. A five-of-a-kind gain pays 0.15-0.6x for lows, 0.9-1.5x for mids, and 3-8 the wager for highs. Wild symbols assist in this endeavour by substituting for any standard pay symbol.
The Ritual Bar is located beside the reels, and each winning medium symbol awards 1 point, each winning high symbol awards 2 points, and each scatter symbol awards 10 points. The bar has five levels of progression and resets with each level-up. Each level eliminates the lowest-paying symbol and upgrades the medium-paying symbols to high-paying ones. The Ritual Bar is reset at the start of a new game round.
Up until level 4, attaining a new level on the Ritual Bar grants two Candle Spins. When players reach the final level of the bar, Cursed Spins, they receive six free spins. Whenever Candle Spins are active, the Ritual Bar functions identically to how it does in the basic game.
Sticky Wilds can appear on reels 2 through 5. During Candle Spins, sticky wilds descend to the bottom of the reels and stick there. Sticky wilds are eliminated whenever they contribute to a successful combination.
xSplit icons are introduced into the game during Cursed Spins. When an xSplit symbol lands, it divides either the row or the reel, duplicating all symbols it passes through. Multiple xSplits can appear in the same row, but not on the same reel.
