Scudamores Super Stakes Slots

Horse racing is a sport which predates many of today’s favourites. And while it fails to capture the same attention as soccer or basketball, it can still capture the hearts (and wallets) of many! So combining horse racing and slots into a gambling extravaganza seems like the natural course of action. NetEnt certainly seems to agree! Scudamore’s Super Stakes is played on a 5x3 board with 20 fixed paylines. It offers several fun special features for you to try out. Wilds can randomly appear in various positions, turning other symbols Wild. A free spins round extends your playing field and lets you bet on a horse race for a massive prize! And last, but not least, there are the bet slip bonuses.

How to Play

We expected a bit better from NetEnt. The developer is usually known for mind-blowing visuals, but they slightly dropped the ball here. Don’t get us wrong, some of the charm is still there. But when you’re used to a 10/10 experience, even an 8 can look worse than it actually is. The game is played on a 5- reel board, where each reel is three symbols tall. During one of the special features, the reel can extend to become four icons tall instead. There are a total of 20 fixed paylines. To win, simply collect three or more identical icons in adjacent positions, starting with the leftmost reel.

Betting Options and Payout

By tweaking your coin value and bet level, players are able to set their total bet between $0.10 and $100 on each spin. This is a good betting spread, and quite generous considering you have 20 active paylines. We suggest experimenting with the two values to fine-tune your stake to the perfect balance of affordable and exciting. The NetEnt’s release has high volatility and a 96.99% RTP, almost a whole percentage point above the current industry average! Scudamore’s Super Stakes has a top prize worth 5,000x your total stake, which can be won during free spins. Pick the right horse, and you’ll ride it to your jackpot!

Symbols and Extra Features

Symbol designs are purposefully left a bit generic for the purposes of special features. This is something we’d usually be against, but we like the bonuses too much to rag too hard on it. So this slot is one of the few that gets a pass for using playing card royals. Which leads to the obvious question: how did it get away with such sorcery? Well, that’s what Peter’s Classic Cup free spins are for! Collect three Scatters in the reels 1, 3 and 5 to trigger it. The reels will add an extra row, increasing their size to a 5x4 playing field. And before any free spins are played, you have to pick one of four horses. From then, the horse race is on! You get an unlimited number of free spins, and each horse jockey and playing card royal pushes one of four horses forward. How is this determined? By colour, of course! Match colour icons will move the associated horse forward by one tile. And if your chosen horse wins, you get the jackpot! At random, between two and five horse shoes land on the board turning symbols beneath into Wilds. Finally, the Bet Slip serves as a long-term wager. You’re betting extra cash that you’ll be able to collect enough of a certain symbol within a certain number of spins. Not something we used too much, but we love the flavour behind this special feature.

Our Verdict

So while it lacks the glamorous graphics, it delivers on every other front. Scudamore’s Super Stakes isn’t just a slot with a horse racing theme. Through its special features, it truly feels like a combination of the two. Hats off to NetEnt – this is a well-deserved five-star game!
