Beat the Beast: Mighty Sphinx is an Egyptian themed slot. It is filled with three different Sphinx symbols, helping this one to tie in nicely with the title. The background is set in the desert with pyramids in the background. The colour scheme is a mix of purples, pinks and the colour of sand.
Wild/ Scatter – The “Sphinx Emblem” is both a Wild symbol and a Scatter, meaning it will substitute for all other symbols, it will pay out regardless of paylines and it will trigger the Free Spins if you can land 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels at once. It also happens to be the most valuable symbol in the game.
Mystery Feature – This is a random feature and if it triggers then between 1 and 3 Sphinx symbols can be added to the reels. If 3 are added then you will also trigger the Free Spins feature.
Free Spins – If you trigger the Free Spins then you will get 10 in total. At the beginning of each spin between 1 and 3 Sphinx symbols will be added to the reels and if it happens to be 3 then you will trigger an additional 5 Free Spins. Also, before the feature begins a symbol will be chosen at random to become an additional Wild symbol.
Beat the Beast: Mighty Sphinx is a decent looking slot, but one that I can’t help but feel is missing something somewhere in its design. You get Free Spins and a Wild symbol and that Wild symbol is also a Scatter. You get a mystery feature that essentially gives you a better chance to trigger the free spins. The house edge offers decent enough value for money and offers a very tiny amount more that the previous Beat the Beast slot in the series.
