The story is set in Casinopolis (in Station Square), where Doctor Eggman turns the people gambling into robots, and brainwashes Miles "Tails" Prower and Amy Rose. Sonic must rescue his friends by winning a pinball tournament called the "Egg Cup Tournament."
- The game features three Pinball tables: one is based on the Sonic the Hedgehog series, the second is based on the Sega Saturn classic NiGHTS into Dreams..., and the third is based on the Sega Dreamcast and arcade game Samba de Amigo.
- The player must beat Eggman to move to the next area in the Sonic Board. The player moves to the next area when they collect all the Ideya and defeat the Nightmaren in the NiGHTS Board. The Samba De Amigo Board never changes, as there are no real objectives except for getting a high score.
- In the Sonic Board, going into a hidden hole three times changes your character to Tails, then Knuckles, then Amy, and back to Sonic.
The response to the game, overall, was positive.
