You’ll be jumping the fences in more than one way with Scudamore’s Super Stakes, the horse-racing themed slot from high-profile developers, NetEnt. Paying tribute to the racing legend of the same name, Peter Scudamore, this five-reel slot features 20 paylines and simulates a high-octane day at the races. The Scudamore’s Super Stakes RTP is 96.11% and can be played from as little as 10p.
Visually, this a highly impressive slot. Not only is the semi-realistic art style rendered to a crisp and clean resolution, but the animations are some of the most fleshed-out you will see on the market. This is best demonstrated through the game’s crowning feature, Peter’s Classic Cup, which combines traditional slot machine gameplay with a fully-fledged virtual horse race.
As if the standard gameplay and prospective winnings wasn’t exciting enough, the simulated race adds a real feeling of excitement as you will on your horse to the finish line – it's like two games in one.
In terms of symbols, you have your standard card values, but you also have a selection of various horses and jockeys, all with different colours and each one competes in the Classic Cup mini-game mentioned above. The whole style of the game feels very authentic, complete with a leaderboard and the sounds of horses galloping away.
The music itself may be a little more over the top and cinematic in comparison, but it certainly adds to the drama and makes winning the race feel even more epic. As we’ve come to expect from NetEnt, they never horse around when it comes to making slots and this is yet another fantastic addition to their catalogue.
Like most traditional 3x5 reel slots, the aim of the game is to land three or more matching symbols in order to create a winning combination. Each symbol holds a different value and the more you match, the bigger the win.
If you read any of our other slot reviews, you’ll know we’re a big fan of NetEnt’s interfaces: they are simple and easy to use, with everything contained to one navigation bar along the bottom of the screen.
To the left, you have the controls for your bet level and total bet amount; to the right, the same is repeated only with your coin value instead. Lastly, you will find your main spin button in the centre of the screen, flanked by your max bet and autoplay function; your autoplay settings can be determined before you hit spin too, so it helps to set yourself limits.
Once you have set your total stake and feel comfortable with the rules, hit spin and you should be off to the races in no time.
There are three main bonus features in Scudamore's Super Stakes, each more substantial than the last, so here’s a quick run-through of how each works.
Pretty self-explanatory: this is a randomly occurring event that can be triggered on any spin, that sees two to five horseshoe symbols appear on the reels and then turn into wilds. The wildcard symbol for this slot is Peter Scudamore himself, so it’s fair to say your in safe hands whenever he takes over the reins.
At any point in the game, you can choose to purchase one Bet Slip, after which you must select a symbol to collect. You then must estimate the number of spins it will take you to collect a particular number of symbols and, should you succeed, you will receive a multiplied payout. If you select the wild symbol and the Random Wild feature applies, this will also count towards the Bet Slip.
This final bonus feature is a highly detailed mini-game all of its own and is triggered by landing the trophy scatter symbol on reels one, three and five. You will then be presented with a new 4x5 reel board that consists of 32 paylines, and you must pick one of four horses to win a horse race.
Each horse holds a different multiplier that corresponds with their chances of winning. Each horse has two symbols that correspond to jockey’s outfit:
When you get a winning combination, the relevant horse moves one place and, should it be the first advance four times, that horse will be the winner. Remember, the bigger the multiplier, the slimmer your chances are, so you have to be clever when it comes to backing your horse.
