This Beat the Beast Mighty Sphinx slot is as mysterious as the iconic mythical creature, so don’t be surprised if it takes a while to figure out all its secrets.
At first glance, this looks like almost any Egyptian Sphinx slot games out there. You’ve got 5 reels and 3 rows of symbols with typical Ankhs and Egyptian iconography, overlooking sandy dunes and pyramids in the vistas beyond.
With bright purple and golden hues, there’s something a little bit magical about this Beat The Beast Mighty Sphinx mobile slot. For one, the Sphinx Emblem can randomly pop onto the screen to surprise you, and you’ll be glad when it shows up.
Because with only 9 paylines, and higher volatility than most, you’ll want that mysterious sphinx to break up this dessert with just a few cooling raindrops of wins.
You basically get three features: a wild, a scatter and free spins. Except that the Sphinx Emblem is both the wild and the scatter symbols – so it pays if you get 3 or more on-screen, and even one can be used to replace another symbol on a payline. It also triggers Beat The Beast Mighty Sphinx free spins.
The payable is generous, and you are looking for a decent 4 or 5 of a kind win to take you over the edge and into the Pharaoh’s treasure room. This won’t come easy. Those ancient kings and queens can be a little tight at times, especially in the base game.
As you know, during the base game you can randomly get 1 to 3 wild/scatter symbols randomly drop at any point. During the free spins this is guaranteed to happen – you will always have at least one Sphinx wild in view.
If you are lucky you’ll get three, get an additional +5 spins AND one of the mid-level symbols gets turned into a wild for the whole bonus game. You can turn up to 4 symbols wild, giving you ample opportunity to catch some bigger win with the highest paying symbol in the paytable… another Sphinx.
Because let it not be said that this Beat The Beast Mighty Sphinx slot is not committed to the theme.
There’s something wonderful about a volatile machine that just wants to give you a good paytable and the high thrills of chasing a big win in the free spins. Just be careful, much like in the Beat The Beast Kraken’s Lair slot, these mythical creatures can easily win this fight if you don’t watch your budget or know when to walk away.
Overall a good real money slot machine with a great betting range, a wonderful top win, and a blazing free spins bonus round. Great for fans of casino games like the Book of Dead slot.

Sphinx Emblem Scatter Wild: The Sphinx Emblem is both the scatter and the wild symbol. It will pay up when you get three or more anywhere on screen, as well as replace other symbols on an active payline to create a win. Plus, it also triggers the free spins bonus.
Mystery Feature: In the base game, 1 to 3 sphinx emblem may be randomly placed onto the reels at the beginning of each spin.
Bonus Game: 3 or more Sphinx Emblems will trigger 10 free spins. On each spin, you are guaranteed to get anything from 1 to 3 extra sphinx emblems randomly placed on the reel. If you get 3 you'll trigger an additional 5 free spins, plus turn one of the mid-level symbols into a permanent wild symbol.
If we could, we would have probably given this Beat The Beast Mighty Sphinx slot review 3.5 stars instead of 4, but we had to choose one way or the other and decided it was better than average, so 4 is what you get.
Beware, however, much like the original Isis slot by Microgaming, this game is a little bit of a slow burn, especially in the base game.
The good news is that with a low minimum bet of 0.10 a spin, you can give this game a decent chance (at least 100 spins) to see if you can get to the free spins and the real heart and draw of it all.
Add a top win of 4,444x your bet, and whilst this isn't one of the Thunderkick slot games that we'll be coming back to time and time again, if it crosses our path we'd happily take a few spins.
