Scudamore’s Super Stakes is latest video slot, and the first sports-branded product, released by casino content giant NetEnt.
The latest in a range of licensed game launches, which also includes Narcos, Ozzy Osbourne and Conan, the 5-reel, 3-row, 20 bet lines video slot strives to capture the “unique trackside excitement,” ahead of this year’s Cheltenham Festival in March and Grand National at Aintree in April.
NetEnt also stresses that it is hoped the new offering is to have all year-round, worldwide appeal, with racing highlights also including Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, Dubai World Cup, Kentucky Derby, Royal Ascot, Breeders Cup and Melbourne Cup.
Scudamore’s Super Stakes’ base game features random lucky horseshoe wilds alongside its Bet Slip feature, which is designed to drive player retention.
The bet slip feature is a game within the game, where players can bet on a certain symbol landing in a certain number of spins in the game.
These bets are saved across gaming sessions so players can come back and pick up where they left off.
Furthermore, the Peter’s classic cup bonus feature, extends the base game to become a 5-reel, 4-row video slot with 32 win lines.
WHAT THEY SAY
Bryan Upton, NetEnt director of games, commented: “With Cheltenham and the Grand National just around the corner, now is the perfect time to launch Scudamore’s Super Stakes. We’re delighted to partner with Peter; he’s not just a true legend of the sport but a true personality that has imbued his knowledge, charm and character into this game.
“The bet slip feature alone we feel will be popular with players and punters throughout the year, but Peter’s presence, voice-overs and advice throughout the development process should win over most of the horse racing fans out there.”
Scudamore added: “I’ve worked closely with NetEnt to create Scudamore’s Super Stakes and help capture the fun and thrills of horse racing. I’m proud to put my name to the game, especially as it’s a first-of-its-kind for NetEnt.”
