IGT unveiled a land based success when it introduced Sphinx 3D in 2013, the first Video Slot using GTECH's patented True3D™ technology. Playing this Slot is a unique experience for every player as it uses eye tracking to adjust the imaging based on your seated position. Sphinx 3D puts a high tech spin on an ancient theme and includes 7 stellar features.
Sphinx 3D Theme
This 30-line Video Slot combines newfangled features with an ancient time period. The game cabinet is quite grand when you approach it on a casino floor. It’s as if you’ve stepped up to a key to decode hieroglyphics and unlock riches and the very top is adorned with a golden Sphinx. Sound and vibration coming from the chair adds to game play; however these effects may be adjusted or turned off completely.
The True3D technology involved in the making of this game creates a customized session for each and every player. While the graphics remain the same, the eye tracking ensures that the 3D images are clear and sharp depending on your seated position and line of sight. With that in mind it’s not an ideal Slot for spectators to stand by and watch, which is great news for many casino goers. Images will appear blurred to anyone but the player. Symbols seem to jump off the screen in a true 3D experience without glasses.
Symbols include the sphinx, pharaoh, hawk, black cat, lion and other unique images with Egyptian drawings as a backdrop. Sphinx 3D is typically available in 1 cent and 2 cent denominations.
The features are what really make this game exciting to play. There are 7 in total with two triggered during the base game and five to choose from in the Sphinx Bonus.

Wrapping it up
If you’re betting the max, the Stars Progressive Bonus is worth a shot. Free spins are always worthwhile but selecting a bonus feature depends on your personal preference. The concept, design and special features make Sphinx 3D an awesome game and it’s often difficult to find an open seat on the casino floor. If you can catch the Sphinx in a good mood the bonuses just won’t stop coming and boosting your balance.
