- A slot that’s based on another popular gambling sport
- The features make good use of the theme and can be quite fun
- Payouts could be a little better but it’s a good slot overall
Scudamore’s Super Stakes slot is a new game from NetEnt that is aimed at true gamblers, the people who just can’t get enough. How do they do that I hear you ask? Well, by combining slots and horse racing, a popular form of betting that many enjoy. While I’m not such a fan myself, I do understand the appeal, so just how well does it work?
Scudamore’s Super Stakes slot has a rather basic looking design, but it’s not that bad. It’s clear and the graphics are good, although I would have liked to have seen more done with the background. This is NetEnt after all. There are just 20 paylines in total with 5 reels and 3 rows, although this can be extended as you’ll see to a total of 32 paylines. To get going, you need to get a win from left to right using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Jack (lowest value)
- Blue Horse
- Green Horse
- Purple Horse
- Red Horse (highest value)
The horse symbols are the high-value symbols, while the card symbols are worth less. However, they aren’t the only symbols in the game. There’s a Wild symbol too shown simply as a jockey which will substitute for all other symbols apart from the Scatter symbols during the base game, but not for the Bet Slip symbols.

Scudamore’s Super Stakes Slot Bonuses and Features
Peter’s Classic Cup. This Bonus is triggered by 3 Scatter symbols shown by a trophy and which appear anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5 during the base game. Once it begins, a winning horse must be chosen where you can get up to 5,000x your bet. The reels will extend, giving you additional bet lines, and a win with the associated symbols will make the associated horse move forward by 1 step. Keep playing until a horse moves a total of 4 steps and wins the Peter’s Classic Cup.
Random Wilds Feature. This can occur at any time, and between 2 and 5 horseshoe symbols will be randomly placed onto the reels, turning the symbols they land on into Wild symbols.
Bet Slip. The bet slip, as you’d expect, will track how many times a chosen horse appears during a number of spins and you’ll be paid the multiplier times the bet value.
Scudamore’s Super Stakes slot from NetEnt has a really great concept behind it and surprise surprise, it’s all about gambling. If you like betting or horses, this is a great way to do it while playing a slot machine. The Bonuses work really well in that they provide very similar entertainment to horse betting. Does it work well in practice? Well, yes and no. It is pretty fun and has been done well. However, I do think the payouts could be better. 5,000x your bet isn’t a bad total payout, but we’ve seen better. Personally, I think it’s a great concept and is pretty fun, but hasn’t reached its full potential. You can also check out some of NetEnt’s other games here.
