How to playSphinx Wild is an IGT slot with five reels, four rows and 40 paylines. The aim of this free slots game is line up matching and lucrative winning combinations of symbols that will bring you big prizes. You will want to watch for some of the special symbols, such as the Wild and the Scatter, which can lead to more wins and unlock more bonus features. When you look at the screen, you will see most of the tools you need for playing arranged along the base. The Spin button is in the centre, and you must click on this to start the game. There is a handy tab that tells you what the stake is per line, and this can easily be adjusted at the side.
Seductive sphinxThe decadently striped Sphinx is the Wild symbol, which packs twice the usual Wild action on account of being two rows high. It is also a very rewarding symbol as lining up five of them will give you a 1000x payout on your total stake. The Sphinx Wild substitutes for all other symbols except the pyramid Scatter. The Wild is also combined with a Surrounding Wild capability. The Sphinx Wild will expand and fill the reel while turning adjacent symbols wild if this means more matches line up for the player. It is visually very exciting when a Sphinx Wild - or even half a Wild - glows and expands and sets off a chain reaction that can result in some large prizes. As an added bonus, any of the game’s symbols can also multiply and cover whole reels, leading to loads of those winning combinations.
Pyramids of choiceCollect three pyramid Scatter symbols on the reels and you will launch the Free Spins Bonus round. The player will be then be given four options for combinations of multipliers and free spins. The selection will be governed by how many Scatters you gathered to trigger the feature. With four Scatters, you might be offered 15 free spins combined with a multiplier of 3x, or a 5x multiplier and nine bonus spins. If you are really lucky and gather five Scatters, you could be offered 30 bonus spins with a multiplier of 2, or 14 bonus spins with a multiplier of 5. During the bonus game, more free spins can be activated. If lady luck is on your side, a total of 600 free spins are up for grabs.
