Casumo Casino has recently added the brand new slot from Thunderkick to their casino with the full title of Beat the Beast: Mighty Sphinx with an offcial release date of April the 8th 2020, with an exlusive early release at Casumo you can play this slot right now exclusively!
This is the second release in the “Beat the Beast” series of highly volatile slots with the previous title being Beat the Beat: Kraken’s Lair, visually the Mighty Sphinx has a similar design but uses a classic Egyptian theme along with several tweaks to the gameplay mechanics that certainly seems to provide some interesting gameplay and potential.
The base game is fairly standard with just 9 fixed paylines and a special Scatter symbol which also acts as a Wild, there are some extremely high paying 5 of a kind symbols but you are essentially looking to trigger the bonus round where the special features really come into play during the free spins round.
Triggered by landing 3 or more scatters you are awarded 10 starting free spins with up to 3 added Scatter/Wilds that are overlayed onto the reels during each free spin, bonus re-triggers are possible and this can actually occur from just the overlayed wilds if you are really lucky and awards 5 extra free spins.
Given the extra scatters that are added on each free spin this slot does seem quite easy to re-trigger and this key to this slot, as along with the extra spins awarded you also convert 1 of the 4 middle paying symbols into a Wild symbol each time this re-trigger occurs.
The very highest paying symbols don’t get converted into Wilds but if you do manage to convert the maximum 4 of the other non-premium symbols this adds many extra wilds onto the reels making 5 of a kinds much easier to land!
