You must know that the wild symbol does not substitute for the “Scatter Symbol”, which is “The Sphinx” symbol.
As “The Sphinx” symbol is the scatter symbol in the game, it is not necessary for it to appear in any of the active pay lines, and can appear scattered anywhere in the grid. Two sphinx symbols shall give you instant reward whereas the appearance of three or more Sphinx symbols shall trigger the free spins bonus round. The bonus round shall award you with 15 free spins with a 3X multiplier. All the control buttons are disabled during the bonus round and the free spins are played automatically. Also, if you are lucky enough, and you get three or more sphinx symbols during the free spins bonus round, you are again awarded with another 15 free spins. The extra free spins awarded are added to the remaining free spins. The free spins bonus rounds shall end when you have no more free spins or you have reached a maximum of 180 free spins. The winnings from the bonus round are added to the game wins to determine the total wins.
