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.

Push Gaming releases Joker Troupe online slot
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Joker Troupe, the latest blockbuster online slot release from Push Gaming, turns up the heat on traditional joker games to deliver a thrilling player experience packed with three breath-taking bonus features.

Joker Troupe boasts not one but three jokers – Blue Joker, Green Joker and Red Joker– to deliver insane action. This, combined with a generous return to player of 96.68% and a volatility that sits at the high end of the scale, makes for a chart-topping online slot.

Each Joker – Blue, Green and Red – is a Scatter Symbol and when three of each land anywhere on the reels, the respective Joker Feature is triggered and the potential for big wins increases significantly.

The Blue Joker Feature sees players collect blue hats and build them into stacks. For every three blue hat symbols stacked the player will unlock a new row and increase the multiplier of any additional hat symbols up to x25. During the feature, the reels can expand up to 10×4.

If three Red Joker symbols land during the Blue Joker Feature, the player will go straight to the Red Joker Free Spins, which can also be triggered during the base game. Once active, players receive 20 seconds of free spins.

Any additional Red Joker symbols that land will increase the pace of the free spins and begin filling the meter that sits at the top of the reels. Once the meter is full, the timer resets to 10 seconds and the meter starts over. During this time the pace of the free spins will increase dramatically.

The Green Joker feature is a classic wheel that appears and is then filled with coin wins and two large booster segments containing multipliers and Red Jokers. Wins will increase by hitting the multipliers while hitting the same booster section three times will end the wheel and trigger the Red Joker Free Spins feature to deliver potentially epic wins.

James MarshallCEO of Push Gaming, said: “With Joker Troupe we have taken the classic Joker game and given it the Push Gaming treatment. The result is a highly volatile, highly thrilling online slot that delivers tremendous big win potential via three compelling features.

“We have added additional emphasis on sounds for this game, as well as the inclusion of our new Hyper ModeTM feature, to create a highly engaging and entertaining online slot that we believe will enjoy the same success as our previous chart toppers like Jammin’ Jars and Razor Shark.”
