Scudamore’s Superstakes Slot Review
Pictures from the game have drawn our attention recently, the racing horses and the horse-racing field in the background looks very exciting. Horse-racing, what is going on? Recent games have been okay but not as good as we expect NetEnt games to be. Perhaps NetEnt will do their best game in a long time we thought before trying the game! Perhaps Scudamore is a well-known name for you but we on NetEntCasinoNoDepositBonus had never heard about any Scudamore before trying this game. After some research we understood that Scudamore is a well-known name in the horse racing world. Tom Scudamore is a third generation jockey who is active today. (2019) Sign up in some of our Sportsbook casinos and place a bet on him. Tom’s father Peter Scudamore is a former jockey, he was an eight-time Champion Jockey. Peter’s father Michael (grandfather to Tom) was also a jockey and he won the Grand National when Peter was just a baby. This English horse racing family has set many records.
Scudamore’s Superstakes is a 5-reel, 3-row and 20-payline slot. The game takes place in a horse track racing field. The main color is green and the graphics look a bit old but in a good way. There are 8 main symbols, classic lower valued symbols J, Q, K and A and the higher valued symbols. The higher valued symbols are the riders (jockeys) and their horses. The wild symbol is Peter Scudamore and the scatter symbol a trophy. There are three features to look out for; Random Wild, Bet Slip and Peter’s Classic Cup.
Random Wild feature: It’s randomly triggered. You get between 2 and 5 horse shoe symbols on the game field which will turn into wilds.
Bet Slip Feature: There are four sets of different symbols. Choose one set of symbols and place a bet. Let’s say you choose symbols J and K and that those symbols will appear 30 times on the gamefield during 30 spins. If you make it, you will get a win.
Peter’s Classic Cup: Get scatter symbols (the trophy) on reels 1, 3 and 5. Once you get the three scatter symbols the fun begins. You will be able to choose 1 out of 4 horses to compete for you in the cup. The horses represent different levels of risk and winning potential. The horse that manages to move 4 spots first wins the trophy. “For every winning combination, you get your horse will move one step.” You can choose between these four horses: (Divine Fortune – 5000x potential), (Berry Max – 500x potential), (Gonzo’s Quest – 100x potential) and (Tin Foil Hat – 50x potential).
MINIMUM BET: €0.10
MAXIMUM BET: €100
MAXIMUM WIN: 10,000 coins
Other: NetEnt show us a new type of game! Wow, we wonder what will come next!
We think it’s great that NetEnt does a slot based on a family who deserves attention and that is interesting to read about. Horse racing is an entertaining theme and the betslip feature reminds us of Virtual sports, which you have to play more often! The graphics are appealing but perhaps not “super-flashy”. We like that you can choose between several different “jockeys” in the scattergame and even choose between several different types of bets in the betslipfeature. The commentator voice is good and creates a nice feeling to the game and the background music is adventurous and reminds us of some golden period of time perhaps 40 years ago. Perhaps the normal maingame is not the best and most entertaining we have seen but it’s okay since the special features can be super exciting and very different from what we have seen in other NetEnt games. We got surprised that you can bet as low as 0.1 euro for each spin, it’s something we think is good and to be honest we would love to get some No Deposit Freespins or regular Freespins in this game worth 0.1 Euro instead of Starburst. As we mentioned earlier we have been a little bit disappointed on NetEnt from their latest game releases but not this time. NetEnt has not scrimped on this game it’s a fruitful game rich on details and lots of good features. Scudamore’s Superstakes is a bit more complicated than a normal game and that is something we like. This game is NETENTERTAINMENT (NetEnt)! It’s entertainment on the net! A great odd and unique game with lovely special features that we definitely will play a lot! We give the game a 4.5-star rating!
Overall score: 4.5/5
