Beat The Beast slot review

beat the beast slot gameBeat The Beast slot by Thunderkick may not sound like an Egyptian-themed game but the full title adds Mighty Sphinx after those words and so that's what we see. Egyptian soft music plays while we take in the desert and pyramids behind the grid and the crisp symbols which are exactly what you would expect of this genre. Egypt is the theme used more than any other as we've seen from old land-based classics such as IGT's Cleopatra slot, through the decades to WMS' Lady of Egypt and latter-day games from more modern developers such as Netent's Pyramid Quest. We may as well just ask right now if this beast will end up beating our bankroll into submission, or not?

On The Reels...
We get 5 reels of 3 rows each and 9 pay lines on Beat the Beast slot with the Sphinx Emblem being both scatter and Wild and paying 200x stake if 5 are present as scatters. Next we have the large Lion Sphinx at 250x, small Gold Sphinx 50x, Scarab 40x, Ankh 30x, Khopesh Sword 25x with five card values paying 15 down to 10x for a full line. We also get upgraded Wilds later on and these or the Sphinx Emblem symbol will pay 1000x bet for 5-of-a-kind if on a pay line. We get one random modifier in that up to 3 Sphinx Emblem Wild-scatters can be placed on any reel at the beginning of a spin which may or may not land for you.

Free Games...
So if you have managed to avail yourself of 3 or more Sphinx Emblems via the modifier, a normal spin or both combined, you get 10 free games. During these, up to 3 Sphinx Emblem symbols are placed on a reel every spin rather than just occasionally as in the base game. Should you land 3 or more you will get 5 extra spins and one mid-paying symbol will be upgraded to a Wild. This is where you have a far better chance of getting those 1000x bet line pays too, as the Wild will substitute for every symbol, including the Sphinx Emblem. Your win is capped at 4,444x bet though, so if you reach this everything stops!

Our View...
Beat the Beast slot is colourful with great music, decent graphics and cool animations alongside a RTP of 96.14%. It's a volatile game though with the feature returns being either feast or famine in most cases! Your base game produces some good balance-maintaining wins due to the high-paying 4 or 5OAK awards and of course there's the scatter Wilds which can help too. You may not beat this beast, but you'll likely have a bit of fun trying...
