If you’re a fan of the races, we’re talking horseracing to be specific, then Scudamore’s Super Stakes online slot is the slot game for you. In brand partnership with eight-time Champion Jockey, Peter Scudamore, NetEnt brings you authentic action with commentary from Scudamore himself, in this 3-row, 5-reel slot with 32 fixed paylines. The game comes with three in-game benefits: there’s random wilds and a Bet Slip feature where you can win up to 1242x your stake if your chosen symbol appears a certain amount of times in a set number of spins. But, it’s all about the Peter’s Classic Cup feature where, if you pick the winning horse, you could pocket up to 5,000 times your stake!
This feature can be set off any time, upon any given spin. When activated, it will provide you with 2 to 5 wild horseshoe symbols placed randomly on the reels, resulting in adjacent positions also turning wild, and more potential wins for you!
During the base game, you will be given an opportunity to purchase a bet slip. When you decide to go for it, you will be asked to choose a symbol to be collected within a decided number of spins. There are four “bets” to choose from:
The Bet Slip will track how many times a symbol appears during a selected number of spins, and will pay the multiplier times your stake value if you get that chosen symbol in the spins decided. If you select the wild symbol and the Random Wild feature applies, it will count towards the Bet Slip.
Peter's Classic Cup
This is the main feature of the slot and is triggered when you land trophy scatter symbols on reels, 1, 3 and 5. The game will then transform to an extended reel set featuring 5 reels, 4 rows and 32 paylines. Before you can proceed, you will be asked to pick 1 of 4 horses to compete for you in the race, each representing a different level of risk and volatility:
Once you have made your choice, the feature begins. All 4 horses are positioned on the track, and for every winning combo you land, your horse moves one spot on the track. The first horse to cross the finish line takes the trophy (and the winnings if yours!) and ends the feature. Note: While it may be tempting to select Diving Fortune, your chances of winning are statistically higher with Tin Foil Hat!
As mentioned, Scudamore’s Super Stakes is an obvious recommendation if you love the sport of horse racing. But even if you don’t, it’s still worth a try. NetEnt has taken an interesting concept and managed to make it work and feel authentic at the same time. The Bet Slip and Classic Cup features are innovative and adds the right amount of thrills, with decent payouts to boot.
