Beat The Beast: Mighty Sphinx (Thunderkick)

Beat The Beast: Mighty SphinxThis is the second slot machine that has been developed by Thunderkick under the series, Beat the Beast.  The first slot under this series was titled Kraken’s Lair.

We are now emerging from the depths of the ocean to the scorching sun of Ancient Egypt.

I’m always fascinated by games that fall under a series. That is the inspiration that drew me into trying this slot, and below is my review:

My Experience

Given its high volatility, I knew I was in for a ride as high volatility is usually accompanied by good rewards.

Mighty Sphinx is a modern slot game and so it uses the usual 5x3 reels. The slot game has a total of 9 active lines.

For the features, I will mention a few that I got to work with, and these are the free spins and Wild mystery symbols.

The reward is the most exciting area, and Mighty Sphinx can give a top payout of up to 4,444x the stake.

Betting and Prizes

Thunderkick seems to offer the same betting range for most of their slot games. For the Mighty Sphinx, betting prices are between $0.10 and $100 per spin.

RTP to player stands at 96.14% for this highly volatile game.

Beat The Beast: Mighty Sphinx Slot Features

Just like on most other modern slots, the wild symbol is the most common feature here. It comes in a simple W logo, and for it to assist you in forming winning combinations, you will need to land it on the reels.

You can also use the wild as a substitute for all other regular symbols.

Other features include Mystery features: when you manage to trigger them, you will be awarded at least three Sphinx wilds/scatters.

A slot game is not complete without the free spins. I love the potential that free spins have, and on Mighty Sphinx, 10 rounds of free spins are available for a start. The slot also allows you to retrigger the free spins.  

The wild upgrades are also present, but these are only availed to you when the feature retriggers.  At this point, the game starts to look pretty exciting.

With each free spin, Mighty Sphinx awards you up to three random wilds.

Theme & Design

Mighty Sphinx's design seems to revolve around the beast of choice. For this slot’s design, it is mostly about the Sphinx of Ancient Egypt.

The Sphinx of Ancient Egypt is present everywhere on the slot game including the symbols.

Other symbols that you can expect to work with include W logos, some Royals bronze (coloured), gold and/ or silver, scarabs, a lotus flower, and some scythes.


If you are a fan of Ancient themed-slot games, then you will find fun in playing Mighty Sphinx.

However, I’m not a fan of these types of games since the theme has already been overused, and a player almost knows exactly what to expect with such a slot game.

Nonetheless, if you enjoy high volatility games, then you can give Mighty Sphinx a hand.
