The name of Peter Scudamore is an unlikely one to bring into discussion of online casino gaming, since his legend was forged in the equine world of National Hunt racing. After staggering personal success as a jockey, Scu (as he was often known amongst the racing fraternity) turned his talents to training winners. So why do we mention him in our dispatches? Well, NetEnt has recently sired a thoroughbred slot with a race day theme, and made it a tribute to this famous name. Now, who’s up for a flutter on Scudamore’s Super Stakes?
And They’re Off
Traditional slot jockeys should be right at home on Super Stakes base game, but we thought we’d draw your attention in this post to a couple of cool features NetEnt has saddled up to this slot that play to the horse-racing heritage of Scu rather neatly. First, Super Stakes adds a lovely spin to its Free Spins bonus feature. This is enhanced with a four-horse race, in which symbol wins that land related to each runners and riders symbol takes that pairing closer to the finish line as free spins play out. Those free spins continue until one of the horses crosses the finish line (the first symbol to land four wins from free spins), and aside from any wins those spins generate, if you backed the winner in that race you could pocket an extra prize of 5,000 times your triggering stake too!
(Bet) Slip Into Something More Comfortable
The second feature to note is an optional long-term bet using the Bet Slip Bonus. Side bets are unusual on slots – they’re more usually found on table games like Blackjack – and this lets you wager on how many symbols several spins might collect, making it a slotty spin on an accumulator bet if you like. We like it very much, and if you’re a Neon Jackpot player who likes the sporting life we suspect Scudamore’s Super Stakes will be a shoo-in for your attention next time you’re up for some reel races with us.
