Scudamore’s Super Stakes Slot review
The guys from NetEnt are giving us a branded slot machine with Scudamore’s Super Stakes, and a game that’s well worth checking out if you like the horse racing theme.
Scudamore’s Super Stakes is a branded release, which NetEnt has created under collaboration with Peter Scudamore, a former jockey from UK. He is well known in this field, and so the presence of his name in the title of this slot machine is deserved. In addition to the regular high paying jockeys on racing horses, symbols that we find in all slot machines from this category, there is also one where we see Peter Scudamore himself in a photo, along with trophies, but also plenty of Royals. The graphics are good, modern and appropriate for the theme that was picked here, definitely better than a lot of older games of the same type. The slot also has a rival, in Bookie of Odds from Microgaming, which was released at the same time.
5 reels will get 20 lines in Scudamore’s Super Stakes, and through them the rewards will reach 1,000x the stake at most, while the best bonus feature can pay 5,000x. You get Bet Slip symbols, wilds, scatters, random wilds and Peter’s Classic Cup, that last one being the feature where you can win the most. RTP is also good, being mentioned at 96.11%.
You might get 20 lines active, but you only need to wager on 10 of them. The level of the bet is one way to increase the wager value, using up to 10 coins per line, or 100 coins total. Another would be through the coin value, which will reach $1. The betting range is $0.10 to $100.
Peter’s Classic Cup is the slot’s most impressive feature, as it allows the player to win as much as 5,000x the stake. He just needs to select a horse, and if it’s the winner during the following free spins, then that kind of payout is possible. To get this feature, you need 3 scattered Trophies during the main game.
Peter Scudamore is present in the role of the wild, and the symbol that will form the highest paying combinations on the reels, offering up to 1,000x.
As for the Bet Slip, this is a tracker which counts how many times a chosen symbol shows up over the course of several spins, and then pays you accordingly.
Scudamore’s Super Stakes looks interesting for a game in this particular category, which has quite a few fans, and not enough high quality releases. I’m sure it will do well, especially with that 5,000x top jackpot.
