Sphinx Wild starts in the same way a classic slot does and it neither feels or looks original, however there is no doubt that hardcore fans of this type of genre will feel right at home. The gameplay is easy, and this coupled with a slick game screen that even beginners will be able to figure out and get the reels spinning. When it comes to the matrix used on the slot this is on the large size in comparison to competitors, and it houses five reels which contain four symbols each and there are forty pay lines. Once the reels are spinning players need to spin in winning combinations of symbols on the pay lines and they will be rewarded with a cash prize associated with the win. The side tabs allow players to select the number of pay lines they wish to play on, whereas the command bar situated at the bottom of the game screen lets players adjust all of the other settings. Once players have selected their bet, they hit play and can watch as the reels spin and hopefully come to a stop in a winning position.
The auto play function allows the player to speed up their game play as well as letting hem sit back and have a rest whilst the reels do the spinning, there is no worries though as any wins made during this feature will be transferred straight back to the players balance. All there is for players to do then is sit back whilst the Egyptian Gods seal their fate. The pay table in Sphinx Wild stays true to the Egyptian theme and there are lots of different symbols to play with. The first set of symbols include the classic playing card symbols, 10 through to Ace, there is nothing new here just the low payers that are in use and most common in the whole game. However, players will be pleased to note that things do get more interesting when it comes to the other symbols, and these include stylish Egyptian symbols such as eagles, jackals, beetles and the Eye of Horus all of which are designed to replicate expensive pieces of jewellery.
The wild in Sphinx Wild can replace all other symbols to create winning combinations as well as this it does also have a special feature which sees all symbols that surround the wild morph into additional wilds to create a spectacular chain reaction. All of the other symbols in this game also have the capability to show up in bulk to cover the entire reels and activate extra-large combinations at random. The final symbol is the scatter which awards free spins no matter where it lands, there are up to thirty free games dependent on the number of scatters that grace the reels and when the free spins do arrive they also carry multipliers to really make it worthwhile for the players.
