And we’re off! The Scudamore’s Super Stakes slot takes you right into the heart of the action with side bets, random wilds and a real-life race with huge stakes.
Now, we are going to admit that we are not huge sports betting or horse racing experts. Maybe we take a bet at Ascot or Cheltenham every year, but it’s more for fun than any real knowledge in the sport.
So we wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t know who is Peter Scudamore MBE, the eight-time Champion Jockey, riding 1,678 winning horses in his career. And to be honest, you don’t need to, but it helps to bring a little extra flavour to the game.
Scudamore’s dolce tones are there throughout the game, from the announcement of the betting slip to telling us who is going to win at the races during the bonus games.
We couldn’t help ourselves. We had to fill out a bet slip from time to time in order to make things interesting. What you are doing here is betting how many symbols you can collect in a certain number of spins.
So, for example, you can collect 40 A symbols in 20 spins you win 2.43 times your bet. If you collect 23 wilds in 20 spins, on the other hand, that wins you 16.4x your bet.
It’s not worth doing it for all spins, but every 50 to 100 spins or so, if the bonus free games haven’t been generous or come round yet, we take a little side bet to keep things interesting.
More advanced than the usual gamble feature like the Star Joker mobile slot game, which is for beginners.
Scudamores Super Stakes mobile slot is a 5×3 reel game with 20 paylines where you get wilds, scatters and free spins.
During the free spins, however, this turns into a 5×4 reel slot machine with 32 fixed bet lines. But the fun is that you get to pick from one of four horses, with the top horse possibly winning 5,000 times your bet.
The horses move along depending on the symbol wins you get in the free spins. Which is a little ironic, as they move on low paying symbols, meaning you want to get lots of little wins rather than big wins.
Which is crazy, but it works. When you get big wins, you love it, but when you get little wins, you also love it. Just bet on the bigger win horses, as that’s how you get the 5,000 times your bet max win.

Wilds: Scudamore is the wild symbol and he will substitute for all symbols except for Scatters. He will not replace symbols on the Bet Slip.
Random Wilds: A random 2 to 5 horseshoe symbols are randomly placed on the reels turning the symbols they land on into Wilds.
Peter’s Classic Cup: When this feature is activated by getting 3 scatters, the reels are extended and bet lines are added. This Scudamore's Super Stakes now becomes a 32 payline 4 row 5 reel slot, but before you do, you get to pick from one of four horses:
While you play the free spins, the horses below start racing according to your wins. If you bet on the right horse winning, you get the winning amount.
Bet Slip: In the main game, you can make a side bet to guess how many times a certain symbol will show up in a number of spins. It pays the multiplier times the bet value, and you can set up a side bet whenever you want.
For example. Collecting 92 wild symbols in 80 spins pays 1,242 times your bet. Meanwhile, betting that you can collect 20 'J' symbols in 10 spins only pays 2x your bet, because it's such a common symbol.
You don't need to know who is Peter Scudamore in order to enjoy what is a well-crafted horseracing slot machine with every element you love of the sport.
You get the side bets which add an extra thrill to the base game, as do the random extra wilds.
But it's the free spins that are really clever, thanks to the fact that you are mostly watching the horse racing below rather than the bigger reels and bigger game... which don't always bring bigger wins.
The Scudamore Super Stakes slot is a fun NetEnt game that might not make you feel like a champion but will have you craving for a great day at the races.
Scudamore's Super Stakes video slot contains 5x3 reels with 20 bet lines, wilds, scatters, side bets and free spins.
