слоты atronic sphinx 2

Unleash the power of the mighty sphinx in with this 5-reel video slot from Gtech's Spielo game-making division.

The 9 payline game has a timeless Ancient Egyptian theme, inviting players to experience the riches and prosperity of the once great civilisation.

Plus, players might just find their own riches and prosperity with spins that include a wild symbol to complete line wins as well as a series of specially designed pick'em bonus rounds.

If you know anything about slot machines, then you will know just how popular the theme of Ancient Egypt is.

In fact, the ancient civilisation is probably up there as the most called on historical theme in the business.

And it's no surprise, really, because the Egyptians had it all – riches, culture, power, technology, mysticism and even some tropical weather.

All of this is represented by this Spielo slot machine, which reveals a variety of icons such as handheld fans and palm trees to present a sense of exoticism, the great pyramids of Giza to show the Egyptian ingenuity, a crook and flail to represent the power of the pharaohs and a set of hieroglyphics and a statue of the dog-like god Anubis to show the culture and religion of the Ancient Egyptian people.

The game also features a wild symbol - depicted as the iconic burial mask of Tutankhamun – which will fill in winning lines for all other symbols except for the golden coin that acts as the games bonus triggering icon.

There is also a scatter symbol depicted as a colourful scarab beetle pendant which will award wins in any position when three, four or five appear on the reels.

So how does this Egyptian styled slot machine compare to all the other games out there with similar themes?

Well, in truth, Sphinx isn't the most mind-blowing slot machine when it comes to the graphics on the reels, even classic titles like Egypt Sky do this better.

That is because the overall design appears rather lacklustre, with simple white backgrounds and quite generically designed icons.
