Specialist slot provider Lightning Box, one of Light & Wonder’s in-house studios, has released Blood and Gold, a title filled with exciting battles and respins.
This 5×3 slot features symbols depicting the leaders of the warring Red and Blue factions as the highest paying symbols in game, along with an array of trebuchets and war horns that must form matching combinations across the title’s 25 paylines to award a win. Players are aided in creating these combinations by the game’s wild, which substitutes all other symbols except the scatter symbol.
Blood And Gold will initially be made available across Europe for two weeks exclusively on Rank Group before being released across all partners thereafter.
Six or more scatter symbols landing during any base game spin awards the Battle rounds, with a choice of the Red or Blue kingdoms presented to the player. Initially awarding three lives and therefore three respins, cash symbols can be landed across the gameboard and collected as prizes.
However, a battle between the leaders of each kingdom at the end of every spin decides if these prizes are awarded. Picking the losing kingdom voids all wins for that spin and loses one of three lives given, whereas choosing the right kingdom collects all prizes and doesn’t reduce the number of lives gained so far. Additional lives can also be landed during the free spins round allowing for extra chances for your kingdom to win a battle and claim these prizes.
Blood And Gold is available to customers of Light & Wonder’s industry leading OpenGaming™ platform alongside popular new titles such as Chicken Fox JR and Lightning Gorilla.
Michael Maokhamphiou, Operations Manager at Lightning Box said: “Innovating within our games is something that has allowed Lightning Box to reach new customers and retain existing players and this originality can be seen throughout the gameplay of Blood And Gold.
“The Battle round hinges on player choice allowing their engagement and decision to affect all elements of the bonus game. With multiple battles on offer, additional lives and big win potential being ultimately decided by player interaction we are sure they will adore the medieval action on offer in Blood And Gold.”
Rob Procter, VP Game Development at Light & Wonder “Lightning Box’s talented team have again created a title filled with engaging and entertaining features to which players will be drawn. Making the heat of battle determine win amounts gained is a unique concept and we are excited to see how it is perceived.”
