IGT have a knack for developing classy Ancient Egyptian themed video slots. One only must look at their Cleopatra franchise to see that. However, Sphinx Wild is quite different from that successful series. It doesn’t focus on Cleopatra for one. Instead, it focuses more generically on Ancient Egypt. Players can expect to be able to enjoy a full-on selection of Ancient Egyptian imagery in this game, and play over 5-reel and 40-line gaming platform. Sphinx Wild carries a non-progressive jackpot which is capped at 1,000 coins, and that should certainly prove appealing. As for wagers, expect to be wagering anything from 40p up to £400 a spin on this slot machine game.
A host of good special features can be found in the Sphinx Wild slot machine game. You have your wild symbol for a kick-off. These wild symbols appear as Sphinx symbols, and they are 2 symbols high and can substitute for all other icons barring scatters. It is also possible via the new Surrounding Wild feature for wild symbols to expand and occupy surrounding symbols in this slot.
Scatter symbols appear as pyramids and can trigger a free spins bonus round when 3 or more such symbols appear anywhere on the reels of the game.
The free spins bonus round allows you plenty of choice in this game. Players have 4 choices of free spins bonus round. The more scatters you locate, the better your choices are going to become. Landing 3 scatters can see you play with between 7 and 30 spins with 1x-5x multipliers. Four scatters offer between 9 and 40 spins with 1x-5x multipliers, whilst all 5 scatters can see you play with between 14 and 60 spins and a 1x-5x multiplier on your winnings.
It may not be as famous as Cleopatra, but Sphinx Wild is something new in the world of Ancient Egyptian themed slots from IGT. If you like the theme – and most casino players do – there is every chance that you will be mightily impressed with what Sphinx Wild has to offer you.
