Only two weeks after launching its Golden Grimoire video slot and online casino games and solutions developer, NetEnt AB, has now announced the premiere of its horseracing-themed, Scudamore’s Super Stakes counterpart.
Peter Scudamore involvement:
The Stockholm-based innovator used an official press release to reveal that its latest five-reel and 20-payline online video slot features both the image and voice of legendary British jump jockey Peter Scudamore and is sure to benefit from the growing anticipation ahead of the upcoming Grand National and Cheltenham Festival meets.
NetEnt explained that Scudamore’s Super Stakes is the first sports-branded title it has ever created and also allows aficionados to experience the exhilaration of some of the horseracing calendar’s most prestigious events such as the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, Kentucky Derby and Royal Ascot.
Bet Slip beauty:
The Swedish firm stated that its newest online video slot comes complete with lucky horseshoe wilds in its base game and is set to enjoy increased player retention courtesy of its unique Bet Slip ‘game-within-a-game’ feature. It declared that this latter innovation offers ‘a compelling mixture of short and long odds’ worth up to 1,242 times an original stake and challenges competitors to wager on the possibility of a particular symbol landing within ‘a certain number of spins.’
Bryan Upton, Games Director for NetEnt, detailed that Scudamore’s Super Stakes additionally offers the 32-payline Peter’s Classic Cup bonus game where players can bank up to 5,000 times their initial stake by successfully picking the winning horse in a virtual jump race with ‘uncapped spins.’
Upton’s statement read…
“With the Cheltenham Festival and the Grand National just around the corner, now is the perfect time to launch Scudamore’s Super Stakes. We’re delighted to partner with Peter [as] he’s not just a true legend of the sport but a true personality that has imbued his knowledge, charm and character into this game. The Bet Slip feature alone we feel will be popular with players and punters throughout the year but Peter’s presence, voiceovers and advice throughout the development process should win over most of the horseracing fans out there.”
