Combinations are counted from left to right starting with the first reel. The combo must contain at least 2 or 3 symbols depending on the type of the symbol.
Calculation of payouts

Three Tens land on two paylines. A combo of three Tens has the multiplier of 0.50. A payout for one payline will be = 10 x 0.50 = 5. Two paylines will pay 5 + 5 = 10 credits.

Golden Sphinx features two special symbols: the Wild and the Scatter. The Wild is a picture of the Sphinx. This symbol will increase your bet size to its maximum and will substitute for any other symbols missing in a combo, except for the Scatter. This is how the Wild completes successful combinations. This symbol will also double your reward for a combo that it is a part of.
The Scatter is a symbol that will pay you a reward regardless of its position. This is a picture of a chest with the word "Scatter" on it. Three or more of these symbols will trigger a series of free spins.
Free spins and bonuses featured in Golden Sphinx
3, 4 or 5 Scatters landing on the reels will trigger a series of 15 free spins. All of the rewards that you will have earned during the free spins will be tripled. You will have a chance to relaunch the free spins once you land three chests again.
The other bonus featured in the game is the jackpot, which is accumulated by adding a certain percentage of each bet. You can monitor the size of the jackpot in the window in the upper left corner of the screen.
You have a chance to double your reward for each successful combo. Once you land any combo on the reels, the Gamble button will pop up above the Spin button. Click on it to take a risk by playing an extra round.
In the double-up game you will see a face-down card and will be required to guess its colour. Click either Red or Black right next to it. If your guess is correct, your winnings will be doubled. If not, your winnings will be forfeited and you will go back to the main game.

- Current Win — your current win in the main game
- Double To — displays your reward if you guessed correctly
If you guessed correctly and would like to continue on with the game, you have two options to choose from:
- Click ½ Take, which will let you claim half of your winnings and risk the other half to possibly have it doubled
- Click either Red or Black to risk the whole amount
If you no longer wish to take a risk, click on the Take button to claim your winnings and go back to the main game.
Golden Sphinx features a pretty advanced gameplay — it can grant you some free spins and a risk game where you can boost your winnings. To a certain extent, this product developed by Wazdan can be called a replication of the famous Book of Ra slot.
