Low value symbols come in the form of the high end of a deck of cards, from 10 through to Ace. These symbols can offer between x0.26 and x2.66 the player’s bet, depending on the amount of matching combinations that land on a single spin. 

Potions, books, skulls and dolls depict the high value symbols, offering between x0.66 and x16.66 the player’s preferred bet. 

Wild women can also land on reels two through five, substituting for all symbols other than the scatter cauldrons and chests.

Scatter cauldrons can appear on any reel, triggering the repins feature if three appear on the same spin. Landing only two scatters on the same spin can trigger the second chance respin.

During the respins game mode, all cauldrons will appear with monetary values that range from x1 to x16.66 the player’s bet. 

Finally, scatter chests can appear in the respins game mode, awarding the cumulative value of all cauldrons on the reels. 


With the respins game mode, players are taken to an empty reel set where only the triggering cauldrons are present on the reels. These cauldrons will display a cash value that will be awarded at the end of the feature. 

Players are given five spins to land as many cauldrons on the reels as possible, with each cauldron resetting the number of spins to five. 

Landing chest symbols will collect the monetary value of all cauldrons in play, doubling the prize pot. 

When two scatters land on one base game spin, a frog will appear. This frog can randomly explode, revealing a second chance symbol. This symbol will cause a respin in which the two cauldrons stay sticky on the reels, giving the player an increased chance of activating the bonus game mode.


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, added: “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.”
