The Blood & Shadow slot by NoLimit City lets you walk into an abandoned cathedral where you are likely to be cursed or pleased by the devil.
Blood & Shadow is a 5×4 1024 ways-to-win slot machine with avalanching wins collected at the reels’ bottom. The more you collect, the higher the levels, the fewer low-paying symbols you’ll find on the reels and the richer the wins.
It’s a simple concept that could see you win up to 6666x your bet, especially if you hit the free spins and find the xSplit symbol. This symbol will split the reels and give you up to 3125 ways to win.
It’s a popular feature by NoLimit City studios, from the xWays Hoarder xSplit slot to the recent Benji Killed in Vegas review. And it’s popular because it allows you to have lots of wins in a very quick series of spins.
That depends on how familiar you are with NoLimit City games. In many ways, this Blood & Shadow mobile slot is a simpler machine than many of the ones that have come before.
You play, and every win is collected per round. The more wins you collect, the richer the reels get. The richer the reels, the higher the level, and the more chances you have to catch the free spins or super free spins.
Normal free spins turn 3 of the low-paying symbols into one high-paying symbol. The Super free spins remove all low-paying symbols and leave only the high-paying witches and monsters on the reels.
The best version of this Blood and Shadow slot machine has an RTP of 96.13% with a wide betting range of 0.20 to 200 a spin.
Use the betting range wisely, as you’ll need a fair amount of spins to hit the Candle Free spins – never mind the Cursed Free spins.
And forget buying them – the Cursed free spins cost 500x your bet, which is more than most Buy Options. You might need to stick with your budget and patience to hit those bonus spins with sticky wilds and xSplit symbols.
If you don’t have either, maybe go with something a little easier on the wallet, like the Walk of Shame slot also by No Limit City.

Tumbling Wins: Every win is destroyed, and more symbols tumble down from above. This continues until no more wins can be found with new or old symbols.
Ritual Bar: The ritual bar is set below the reels, and every win and scatter is collected, allowing you to move up levels. The Ritual Bar resets for every paid spin.
You remove the lowest-paying symbols as you go up the levels and convert medium to high-paying symbols.
Candle and Curse spins: Every time you reach a new level of the Ritual bar, you'll win +2 Candle Spins until you hit level 4. At level 4, you'll win +6 free spins when advancing to Cursed Spins.
Sticky Wild: Sticky Wild can only land on reel 2-5 and will stay on screen for multiple spins during the Candle Spins/Cursed Spins. They drop to the bottom of the screen and stay on screen until they are part of a winning combination.
xSplit: These are activated during Cursed Spins. When this symbol lands, it will either split the row or the reel. When it splits the symbol, it increases the number of ways to win and adds an x2 multiplier to the symbols.
This increases the way to win from 1024 to 3125 ways to win.
Buy Bonus: You have several Buy Bonus slot options.
The Blood & Shadow slot is not for the faint of heart. You wouldn't tackle the devil without plenty of courage.
As with so many NoLimit City slots, this is an extremely volatile machine where you can win as much as 6,666x your bet.
Because when they commit to their slot theme, they commit even with the maths.
This is what you'll need to do if you want to survive this meeting with the witches - commit to a budget, stick to the budget, and play smart. Only experienced gamblers should walk into this church.
