Beginning of November, NetEnt already announced that it signed a contract with eight-time Champion Jockey Peter Scudamore. In a bit more than 6 weeks, you’ll get the chance to experience all the excitement a day at the horse races is bringing when the Scudamore’s Super Stakes™ slot becomes available at all NetEnt Casinos.
Who is Peter Scudamore?
It will only a matter of weeks before you can start to enjoy a whole new type of slot excitement, but before I’m going to tell you all about it, you might wonder what this first sports branded slot will be based on.
I’m pretty sure that anybody into horse races knows who is Peter Scudamore, or “Scu”, but if you hardly ever see a horse running around a track, you might be in deep need of a description of this very well-known jockey.
He never won the Grand National (his best result was a 3rd place in 1985), but this now 60-year old jockey left many impressed during his 15-year career. During his career, he broke many jumps racing records while riding a total of 1,678 winners out of 7,521 mounts. It’s because of these numbers, that Peter Scudamore can be called the most successful jump jockey in history.
Of the 1,687 winners, 792 were saddled by trainer Martin Pipe which seemed to be an excellent choice of trainer. He was the first trainer to refine his methods with a scientific approach. It was mainly thanks to this partnership that “Scu” managed to become champion jockey a record eight times, with the last seven in succession between 1985 and 1992.
After his successful riding career, Peter Scudamore became a trainer and is now one of the sport’s best-known and well-respected racing experts. No wonder that NetEnt saw a perfect partner in Scudamore for its first sports branded product.
“From our first conversation, NetEnt’s commitment to innovation and passion for creating fantastic products was clear. I am delighted we are joining forces to launch a new slots game that will capture the unbeatable, exhilarating racing experience.”, said Peter Scudamore.
Scudamore’s Super Stakes™ slot
As already announced by NetEnt in November, the game includes actual racing content and themed in-game features with Scudamore’s well-known and loved voice used during the Free Spins feature.
No matter if you like horse racing or not, it seems that Scudamore’s Super Stakes™ is going to offer an exciting game with lots of racing action! And you, you get a chance to bet on your favourite horse. And if you think you don’t know any, think again!
Six weeks from now, you’ll enjoy the fun of horse betting while enjoying slot features such as the common Random Wilds, the unique Betslip feature, and Peter’s Classic Cup feature.
Playing Scudamore’s Super Stakes™, you’ll hear Scu’s loved voice which makes this game familar to those who have been to the races or watched it on television. I have to admit that I’m not among those, but it seems to be a great addition to this new slot experience.
So who is going to take home the Peter’s Classic Cup? The answer to this question will come at one point and I’m about to figure out why, watching the above YouTube preview video. While at it, I get the idea that the Scatter appearing on the middle reel has something to do with the betslip. You’ll see your bet on the slip, but it seems you have the choice to raise this bet at the last step. Step 1 is to select one of the 10 symbols whole step two asks you to select a number of spins.
Spins will then start rolling, but as far as I can see we’re not talking about free spins here. The spins are paid, but I get the idea that your special symbol is going to be responsible for higher wins. In the preview video, the Wild is selected and these Wilds seem to be more than a substitute for other symbols, It looks like the Wild was selected as some sort of Collect symbol. Every Wild appearing on the reels result in a +1 and if you collect enough of them, you win the bet!
I get the feeling that we’re all going to love this new slot experience and this feeling grows when three Scatters activate Peter’s Classic Cup! It will be during this special feature that you’ll be enjoying all the racing action from the mounting yard to the winning post! You’ll get a choice from four well-known horses linked to a certain bet. The lower the bet, the more chance this horse is about to win, I guess, but a bit of risk seems to result in a higher win!
Now, sit back, enjoy the race and hope for the best to happen for your horse. Believing the one and only Scu, the going is always good! However, to enjoy this horse racing spectacle, we have to wait another six weeks but I’m sure it’s worth the waiting!
