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.

In cooperation with international lawyers Leonid Shmatenko (Eversheds Sutherland) and Rodolphe Ruffié-Farrugia (Clifford Chance) as well as Esports Legal News, this inaugural event aims to set the standard for esports-focused legal conferences worldwide.

Event Overview

ESI Events and the co-organizers intend for “Play By The Rules” to provide an unparalleled platform for legal professionals (attorneys, inhouse-lawyers, academics, and students), industry stakeholders, and esports enthusiasts to delve into the complex legal landscape of the esports sector.

Sam Cooke, Co-Founder and Managing Director at Esports Insider said: “We are thrilled to launch ‘Play By The Rules’ in partnership with Leonid Shmatenko of Eversheds Sutherland and Rodolphe Ruffié-Farrugia of Clifford Chance as part of ESI Lisbon 2024. Our new esports legal forum represents a first and important step in addressing the complex legal challenges within the esports industry, providing a dedicated forum for discussion, innovation, and actionable solutions. By bringing together the brightest minds in esports law, we aim to set a new standard for legal excellence in this rapidly evolving sector.”

Leonid Shmatenko, Senior Associate at Eversheds Sutherland and Founder of Esports Legal News: “After an extensive search for a comparable event in the market, I found numerous conferences that addressed video games law but none that focused specifically on the unique legal challenges in esports. Esports is a rapidly growing field with its own set of legal considerations, and it is high time we had a dedicated platform to address these issues. I approached ESI with this concept and their enthusiasm and commitment to excellence made them the perfect partner. Together, we aim to set new standards in the esports law conference world, providing invaluable insights and fostering a deeper understanding of the legal landscape in esports.”

Rodolphe Ruffié-Farrugia, Counsel at Clifford Chance and co-founder of Esports Legal News: “For years now, esports has been a booming industry and we have witnessed the emergence of a wide variety of professional stakeholders, including the players themselves, their teams, the leagues, tournament organisers… Yet, the legal industry has not been as quick in adapting to the unique needs and high stakes at play in esports, no doubt because lawyers and gamers tend to evolve in different worlds. Knowing well these communities from within both personally and professionally, I have made it a mission years ago to build bridges between them. I feel very lucky to have found like-minded peers in Leonid and ESI to create this first-of-its-kind summit, a turning point in bringing esports and the law together.”

This certification enables clients to operate in South Africa by integrating popular games through the SOFTSWISS Game Aggregator.

The tool provides high-quality service and robust software, boasting a 99.9% uptime, which is especially crucial in regions with unstable internet connections. Additionally, the Game Aggregator team offers features to enhance casino performance, focusing on the most essential metric in the industry – player engagement.

All Game Aggregator’s clients, whose number grew to 1,087 in Q2 2024, can seamlessly and quickly integrate the SOFTSWISS Jackpot Aggregator, join the Network Jackpot, and launch branded jackpots. To boost engagement and social interaction, the Game Aggregator has also upgraded its Tournament Too by adding crash games.

The effectiveness of these engagement tools is evident in the growing Bet Count, which totalled over 42,300,000,000 in Q2 2024, a 13% increase from the previous quarter.

“Our growth over this half a year has been remarkable,” says Tatyana Kaminskaya, Head of SOFTSWISS Game Aggregator. “Reaching over 23,500 games is a milestone that establishes us as the largest content hub.
