Horse racing is a popular activity around the world, as punters are keen to watch the majestic beasts run their hearts out while putting in bets on the outcome of the races. NetEnt is playing on this for their Scudamore's Super Stakes slot, which focuses on the legendary jockey Peter Scudamore as he races around the track.
Scudamore's Super Stakes is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot that is set on a grass race track and has a mixture of classic slot symbols that interface with horse-related icons. These include J, Q, K, A, a blue racer on a horse, green racer on a horse, purple racer on a horse, and a red racer on a horse. There is also a symbol with Peter Scudamore, as well as a gold trophy.
The features in the game include wild symbols, a pick'em bonus, stacked symbols, free spins and more. The game's pick'em, combined with the free spins mode is among the best I've come across, as you're put in the middle of a horse race. You pick a pony you want to win, and if the spins play out and your horse wins, you get the huge win multiplier total. I got one with the green horse and ended up taking home a nice 100x win multiplier on my free spin total.
The combined features with the payline structure give the slot a posted return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.1%, which is a tad low for a NetEnt slot, but is likely due to the licensing agreement involved in the game.
I should note that the presentation in this game is excellent, and it looks good on both desktop and mobile devices. There isn't really any graphical drop and I think this is an excellent choice if you're playing on the go.
So saddle up your horses and get your slip ready, as Scudamore's Super Stakes is an excellent online slot.
