Our Slot of the Month for March 2019 is Scudamore’s Super Stakes by Net Ent. Released shortly before one of the biggest events in the equestrian calendar, the Cheltenham Festival, it is themed on legendary jockey and pundit Peter Scudamore who won a staggering 1678 races in the course of his career. You don’t need to know anything about horse racing to enjoy Scudamore’s Super Stakes – although if you do, you may enjoy it even more!
How To Play Scudamore’s Super Stakes
Scudamore’s Super Stakes has a classic 5 x 3 reels arrangement with 20 fixed paylines, against the background of a racetrack. The symbols include four jockeys on racehorses and Peter Scudamore himself as the wild . The slot has three bonus features:
The Random Wilds feature is randomly triggered in the base game only. 2 to 5 horseshoes land anywhere on the reels and turn the symbols in those positions wild.
Bet Slip is a most unusual optional feature that enables the player to place a side bet of 80p to £80 on how often each symbol will turn up over the next 10, 20, 40 or 80 spins. The odds on offer range from evens for 20 of the J symbol in 10 spins up to 1241 to 1 for 92 wilds in 80 spins. The bet slip sits at the side of the reels while the spins take place and at the end it either pays out or is crumpled up and discarded.
Peter’s Classic Cup is a free spins bonus round which is triggered by the appearance of three gold cup symbols.
It does not have a set number of free spins. Instead, the whole thing is set up as a horse race and before the free spins start, the player must choose which of 4 horses to back. In a nice touch, the current local time is shown as the race start time on the horse selection screen. Racehorse names in the real world are frequently whimsical and so are they in this game!
The free spins then start, playing on an extended 6 x 4 array on a big screen above the racetrack. Each horse has a colour corresponding to one high paying and one low paying symbol on the reels. For example, Gonzo’s Quest is green and linked to the green racehorse symbol and the Q symbol (which is green) and Divine Fortune is red and linked to the highest paying (red) racehorse symbol and the A symbol (also red).
After each spin 0, 1 or 2 horses move forward based on the colours of the symbols in any winning combos – so Gonzo’s Quest moves forward if there is a win involving Q or green racehorse symbols. A horse can only make one move forward per spin regardless of the number of winning lines. The first horse to have made a total of 4 moves forward wins the race and the bonus round ends; if the player backed the winning horse they collect the stake multiplier as well as the winnings from the free spins themselves (and there are guaranteed to be winnings from the free spins as the horses don’t move on losing spins).
The great thing about Scudamore’s Super Stakes is that players can supercharge the variance if they want to by making use of the Bet Slip to place side bets at long odds and by picking Divine Fortune in Peter’s Classic Cup, but the game is just as enjoyable played with a short odds side bet (or none) and picking Gonzo’s Quest or Tin Foil Hat to win in the bonus round. NetEnt haven’t done a sports themed branded slot before but they seem to have got it right with Scudamore’s Super Stakes and we expect to see more of this type of slot from them in the future.
