Scudamore's super stakes slot from NetEnt

Scudamore's super stakes slot from NetEnt
Nearly 30 years after retiring from his jockey's career the famous English Champion- Peter Scudamore is taking part in one other type of race - at NetEnt’s video slot (2019 released), named after him. During his career, this great 8 times race-winner had ridden more than 1600 horses and brought numerous awards to the UK jokey club.

The branded horse racing slot features ‘Scu’ himself during the race coverage, and the Bet Slip bonus game. It is surely one riveting and exceptional game of the Swedish developer, with the central enticement being the race itself- Peter’s Classic Cup, but featuring also Random Wilds and a Bet Slip option.

The layout of the Scudamore's super stakes slot is a twofold grid of 5x3 in the main game, and 5x4 in the bonus game. The pay lines are separated as well - 20 and 32. Same counts for the RTP - 96.11 and 96.99%. The slot has high volatility.

Review and recommendations by the testing team

  • The slot comes with excellent graphics and perfect sound as expected from NetEnt, only this time is designed with extra realism and sound verity, bringing super authenticity – just like you are physically on the racetracks, cheering for your favourites. Scudamore's super stakes slot can be seen as a real step forward for the Swedes, who not only combined a compelling arena theme of the paddock with the potential of winning 5 000x + total bets but brought a real sports bookmaker flair by including the Bet Slip function in the base game, with a win potential chance of up to 1241x bets. 
  • Like with most of the slots here too, in the usual spins you can have: empty rounds (1), or such delivering less than the current stakes (2), other rounds with winning up to 20x bets (3), and now and then rounds with better winning of 40x-100x bets (4). In fact, the slot is able to give a full-screen of winning combinations (up to 800x bets), which is surely not disappointing.
  • Furthermore, in the base game the Random Wilds feature (2 to 5 random horseshoes on fire appearing anywhere on the reels) can provide additional small or average wins.
  • Side by side with the usual spins is the Bet Slip feature, working like a bookmaker's desk, where you can select 1 symbol to collect and predict the number of spins that will appear. The betting form will appear right on the screen and will keep track of the number of times your favourite symbol drops. If you get it right you receive the corresponding payment. This is one extra gamble feature that can be used as often as you wish requiring you to apply an adequate bet (with a maximum coefficient of 1241 to 1).
  • Land 3 Scatters anywhere on the reels and you will be rewarded the Free Spins, which come here in the form of a real horseracing round named Peter’s Classic Cup. The number of Free Spins is not fixed, as they will continue until the end of the race. During the Free Spins the layout changes to 4 rows/5 reels, and 32 win pay lines. You have the chance to pick your favourite from 4 different racehorses.
  • - Each participant horse delivers a different multiplier, i.e. has different odds of winning the race. 
  • - Each colour jockey shirt makes a combination with a letter of the same colour, and this colour combination will move the related horse 1 step ahead in the race. The horse/colour, which first progresses 4 steps is the winner. Here are the contestants:
  • J Symbol - Blue Jockey pays 50x
  • Q Symbol - Green Jockey - pays 100x
  • K Symbol - Purple jockey pays 500x
  • A Symbols - Red jockey pays 5000x
  • Despite the expanded reels, the wins here are not much bigger than in the usual spins. Especially if you bet on a colour combination that it doesn’t win, you should not expect a big win. Meanwhile, the Blue jockey and his horse with the minimum value (50x bets) do not always win, so using the betting strategy as ‘only on it’ will not be very successful and will probably not compensate for the balance lost in the base game. 
  • The prospect of the least favourite horse winning - Divine Fortune with the Red jockey (worth 5000x bets), is not high of course, but NetEnt has already recorded such achievements. Our team prefers to bet periodically on 500x horse and every now and then on the 5000x. However, the general recommendations are to bet on 100x and 500x.
  • Scudamore slot is not suitable for playing with bonus money and fulfilling the wagering requirements. Regarding the game with real money you have 2 choices: A) to place minimum bets in an attempt to get series of small and average wins - so, you will go for minimum/average odds in one long session, or B) place high bets, outreaching for the top win of 5000x bets in the bonus round, or a big win in the gamble option Bet Slip - so, you will go for short sessions.

Additional testers’ opinion

We consider this slot as one of the top quality products from NetEnt’s portfolio, which is super exciting with its impressive bonus features. Sadly the existence of so many good features doesn’t promise their effectiveness or guarantee one super win. For example, in one game session playing 20 times with the Bet Slip feature, we secured win only 1 time, which barely covered the expenses for all our 20 extra gambles.

We were also not very lucky at the Peter’s Classic Cup, where the more expensive the colour combination is the less it will fall, but the rewards will be bigger, i.e. the maximum win (5000x) for the Red jockey/horse + letter A will happen only for the luckiest player. We won only 1 time out of 11 played bonus rounds, and our reward was 100x total bets. This is not your typical NetEnt slot, and regardless of some shortages, we enjoyed it immensely.

How to win at Scudamore's super stakes slot machine? (Conclusion)

  • We begin as usual, with the advice to test the game in DEMO mode before betting with real money.
  • We do not recommend this slot for playing with bonus money and fulfilling the wagering requirement.
  • You can try this game for playing with real money but not with a small bankroll - funds of around 250 bets are advisable.
  • This game is suitable for low-rollers. They can use minimum bets in pursuit of small and average win series, playing long sessions.
  • On the other hand, Scudamore's super stakes slot is also recommendable for high-rollers, who like maximum risk, aiming for the top 5000x bets win in the bonus round, or a big win in the extra Bet Slip alternative. For them we suggest short sessions: strike one super win, take your cash and move to another slot.
  • Despite the general opinion that this is one slot only for Hippodrome venue fans, the game could be appreciated by players of all ages, genders, and types: high and low rollers, beginners, and experts. 
  • If you spin the Scudamore's super stakes slot you will acknowledge the incredible competence enliven into this authentic game by NetEnt!
