Thunderkick returns with the second instalment of the Beat the Beast slot series, the Beat the Beast: Mighty Sphinx Slot. If you had battled the beastly Kraken in the first instalment, you will find the Mighty Sphinx even more exciting to confront.
This slot is set in the deserts of ancient Egypt with lofty sand pyramids gracing the background. Gameplay takes off on a 5×3 grid with 9 Paylines for triggering wins. While 9 Paylines might come short for a game played on 5 reels, triggering the free spins bonus feature would see them expand to a whopping 243 Paylines allowing you to trigger impressive wins of up to 4,444x your stake.
How to play
To battle the mighty Sphinx, you would need to place a stake on the reels. Bet limits start from 0.10 and cap at 100 credits per spin. On the reels are low pay and high pay symbols consisting of Sphinxes, ancient Egyptian relics, and playing cards. The latter are the low pay symbols and would require you landing at least 3 of a kind to trigger a payout.
With the high pay symbols, you would need only 2 of the same symbol type to trigger wins. You will find a scarab beetle, a crook, and a sphinx. The larger, more terrifying sphinx pays the best with 5 on the reels awarding 250x the stake.
Beat the Beast: Mighty Sphinx Slot Special Features
The game’s wild and scatter is the Sphinx Emblem symbol. It will substitute for other symbols, and trigger the bonus game feature.
During the beginning of any base game spin, up to three Sphinx Emblem symbols can appear on any reel which would trigger the bonus game.
With the presence of three or more Sphinx Emblem symbols on the reels, you get to play the free spins bonus game. This awards 10 free spins and can be retriggered by landing 3 or more Sphinx Emblem symbols. The retrigger awards 5 extra spins. Alongside the initial 10 free spins, you will receive a payout. You will be awarded 2x, 20x, and 200x the stake for 3, 4, and 5 on the reels.
During the start of every bonus free spin round, 1 to 3 Sphinx Emblem symbols will be placed randomly on any position on the reels.
Retriggering the bonus game will activate the wild upgrade feature. This will transform one mid pay symbol into a wild symbol.
Beat the Beast: Mighty Sphinx Slot does not offer a progressive jackpot, but you can still win a massive 4,444x your stake on the reels.

With a RTP of 96.16%, this slot gives players some nice chances of hitting wins.
