It’s a new year, so it’s time for some new games at NJ online casinos. One of the most exciting new casino offerings is virtual sports. If you haven’t had the chance to try out this exciting and realistic game format, now is the time to do so. SugarHouse Casino has added five new virtual sports betting options:

  • Horses
  • Soccer
  • Greyhounds/Dogs
  • Moto Racing/Motorcycles
  • Speedway/Car Races

Today we’ll concentrate on their Virtual Horses game, as well as Sphinx Wild, a new slot available at three venues.

Sphinx Wild

Surrounding Wilds Provide Kingly Wins

Step into the Egyptian sand scene and spin the reels to reveal the Ankh, Eye of Horus, Anubis, royal jewels, and 10-Ace symbols. This slot has three great features. There are the Stacked Symbols, Tutankahmun’s Mask—the Wild, and the Free Spins Bonus Game. While all of these are fairly typical in and of themselves, they each provide the player with the opportunity for bigger wins.

The Stacked Symbols work in combination with the Tut Wild, which with a potential win will become a Surrounding Wild. This means that every symbol touching King Tut becomes wild. Best case scenario, three whole reels become wild, making for a monster win.

As for the Free Spins round, instead of getting the typical 10 spins, you have your choice of spins and multipliers. For example, should you get three bonus symbols, you have your choice of 30 spins/1x multiplier, 15 spins/2x multiplier, 10 spins/3x multiplier, or 7 spins/5x multiplier. Better yet, you can re-trigger the Free Spins round!


The stats

  • 5 reels/40 paylines
  • Surrounding Wilds
  • Free Spins Bonus Game with choice of spins/multipliers
