NetEnt saddles up for Scudamore’s Super Stakes
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

NetEnt brings the races to the reels as it releases its first sports-branded product, Scudamore’s Super Stakes, featuring eight-time champion jockey Peter Scudamore MBE.

 

Launched today with NetEnt’s operator partners, the 5-reel, 3-row, 20 bet lines video slot captures the unique trackside excitement as anticipation builds ahead of the 2019 Cheltenham Festival in March and Grand National at Aintree in April.

This title is sure to have all-year-round, worldwide appeal, with racing highlights also including Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, Dubai World Cup, Kentucky Derby, Royal Ascot, Breeders Cup and Melbourne Cup.

Scudamore’s Super Stakes’ base game features Random Lucky Horseshoe Wilds and the innovative Bet Slip feature, which drives player retention. The Bet slip feature is a game within the game where players can bet on a certain symbol landing in a certain number of spins in the game. These bets are saved across gaming sessions so players can come back and pick up where they left off.  The potential bet slip pay-outs are a compelling mixture of short and long odds up to 1242x stake.

If that wasn’t enough, there’s also Peter’s Classic Cup Bonus Feature, where the base game is extended to become a 5-reel, 4-row video slot with 32 win lines. Here players back their winning horse and can win up to x5000 their stake in a true to life jump race with uncapped free spins until a horse has won.

“With Cheltenham 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; 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 horse racing fans out there,” said Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games.

Scudamore rode 1,678 winners in a 15-year riding career, before becoming a trainer and renowned media pundit.

“I’ve worked closely with NetEnt to create Scudamore’s Super Stakes and help capture the fun and thrills of horse racing. I’m proud to put my name to the game, especially as it’s a first-of-its-kind for NetEnt,” said Scudamore.

Scudamore’s Super Stakes is the first in a number of scheduled NetEnt licensed game launches, which also includes Narcos, Ozzy Osbourne and Conan.

The Premier League, in partnership with Tencent Sports, Tencent Gaming and EA SPORTS, is launching ePremier League China later this month, the first ePremier League event to be staged outside the UK.

Some of the best Chinese gamers on EA SPORTS FIFA Online 4 will represent all 20 Premier League clubs alongside hand-picked content creators and influencers. They will compete together in a group stage to determine who reaches the finals in May. The tournament will be streamed live by Tencent across China and kicks off on Wednesday 28 April.

Premier League Commercial Director Will Brass said: “The EA SPORTS FIFA Online 4 video game series is one of the key channels through which fans in Asia can engage with Premier League clubs and players. After three successful ePremier League seasons in the UK, it is exciting to now be able to take this overseas for the first time and particularly to China – a hotbed for gaming and football.

“We are looking forward to working closely with EA SPORTS and our broadcast partner Tencent Sports to showcase some of the world’s best gamers in action. I am sure it will prove popular with the loyal and passionate supporters of Premier League clubs in China.”

Matches will be played on EA SPORTS FIFA Online 4 (FO4) on PC, which has more than 10 million registered players in China. Each of the 20 Premier League clubs will be represented in the tournament by two local players – one high-ranking gamer on the FO4 leader board and one influencer.

This will include famous esports commentator Guan Zeyuan and the well-known FIFA Online influencer Shen Rongjie.

The clubs will be divided into four groups of five teams, with the winners of each group advancing to a knockout stage. Group-stage matches will be played online, whereas knockout matches will be played offline at Wisdom Bay in Shanghai.

Group matches will take place between Wednesday 28 April and Saturday 8 May. The knockout phase will be held on Friday 14 May, with the Grand Final on Saturday 15 May.

The ePremier League China tournament will further complement the Premier League’s digital offerings in the country, where it has more than eight million followers across its digital and social platforms.
