Scudamore’s Super Stakes Slot Review – NetEnt
NetEnt has announced their next slot release for 2019. The slot is a branded slot. They have produced many of these branded slots before such as ‘Jumanji,’ but they are never really volatile compared to other releases. Their new one is partnered with Champion Jockey Peter Scudamore to produce their first Sports slot. The jockey received an MBE for his services to the sport of horse racing and an eight-time champion jockey. This partnered slot will be released worldwide for players “March 7th”.
NetEnt finally released a slot with some volatility recently and is a great hit in the casino community. The slot is called “Vikings,” it has some detailed graphics along with smooth gameplay, and there are many big win videos already. Some videos with wins of 2000x+ which is rare on NetEnt releases until now. So after this recent success, I am hoping Scudamore’s Super Stakes continues this sudden success for the provider. Let’s talk about the base game.
Scudamore’s Super Stakes Slot Review Base Game
The slot has a reel set of 5 reels by three rows with 20 Pay lines, which is a standard set up on most NetEnt releases. The slot has a set RTP of around 96% which is an average on the large majority of slots. There is a max win potential of 5000X which is high for NetEnt releases. The slot lacks visually with low-quality graphics, but it does run smoothly. It is a shame the graphics are lacking detail since we know NetEnt are capable of producing slots with some insane detail, makes the slot look rushed which is a disappointment.
In the base game, you will benefit from a random wild feature; this will trigger randomly on any spin in the base game and produce 2-5 wild symbols which will be placed in random positions on the reels. Very simple feature but can provide some excellent top-up wins for your balance.
There is also a bet slip feature in the base game; You can purchase a bet slip. Afterwards, you will proceed to pick a game symbol to be collected within a chosen number of spins. You will need to choose from the four bets displayed after selecting a symbol. If your chosen symbol lands on reels enough times within the number of spins you are awarded a coin value, this value will depend on your bet size of course.
– Collect 11 Wilds Or Scatter Symbols within 10 Free Spins. Pays = 5.85x
– Collect 23 Red, Green Or Purple Jockey Symbols Within 20 Free Spins. Pays = 16.4x
– Collect 46 Blue Jockey Symbols Or A And K Symbols Within 40 Free Spins. Pays = 75x
– Collect 92 Q Or J Symbols Within 80 Free Spins. Pays = 1242x
Scudamore’s Super Stakes Slot Review Symbols & Pay Table
The slot has 4 low paying symbols which are represented by A, K, Q and J which are standard symbols in slots. There are also 4 high paying symbols which are represented by 4 different coloured jockey/ horse symbols, the red jockey riding the white horse is the highest paying. There is also a wild symbol which features in a base game feature and bet slip symbol.
Scudamore’s Super Stakes Slot Review Bonus Feature
The slots bonus game is called “Peters Classic Cup Feature,” This feature is activated when scatters land on reels 1,3 and 5. This bonus feature is played on a different reel set of 5 reels and 4 rows which includes 32 pay lines instead of the original 20 pay lines. You will need to pick 1 horse out of the 4 displayed, all of these horses have different risk levels and different volatility levels also. The first is 50x potential; the second is 100x potential, the third is 500x potential and the last 5000x potential. But of course the higher the volatility, the higher the risk of your pick.
Every time you hit a win during spins, your chosen horse will move one space in the horse race, the first horse out of the 4 to reach 4 spots wins the race. If your chosen horse wins, you will be awarded the X amount for your preferred bet size. I would personally be more drawn to the mid-range choices. In my opinion, they have the better chance to win, but the high range one will bring out high rollers due to the significant potential of 5000x. Still, it’s interesting to see a range of choices.
Scudamore’s Super Stakes Slot Review Conclusion
Overall, this game is very dull when it comes to visuals which is a big disappointment, especially from such a prominent provider. The slot itself has some good potential with the max win of 5000x in the bonus game. Realistically, the odds of winning will be very slim of course. The base game has the random wild feature which can help keep your balance topped up. The game runs very smoothly and has a medium volatility. The slot will be available worldwide March 7th, and I hope NetEnt have some exciting content to come in 2019. As always, remember to check out our Twitch channel. You might just see the slot in action!
