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.

INTRALOT pick Algosport to provide innovative Bet Builder products
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Innovative UK based sportsbetting technology company Algosport are pleased to announce that they have signed an agreement to provide Bet Builder products to industry giant INTRALOT.

Under the terms of the deal, current and future INTRALOT customers will benefit from market-leading Bet Builder products initially for pre-match football, but with the ability to expand to include In:Play betting options across a wide variety of sports, with Cashout supported as standard. Unlike some other providers, Algosports proprietary technology will be housed within INTRALOT’s current platform infrastructure, increasing accuracy and robustness, plus reducing the latency and other problems seen with some API or feed-based solutions.

Leigh Herdman, CEO at Algosport, said, “This is a really exciting deal for Algosport, and we are really pleased to be working with INTRALOT, who are one of the biggest names in betting and gaming”

Alongside traditional same game multiples for sports such as soccer and basketball, Algosport are also continually enhancing the service and recently added innovative products for handball and snooker betting markets. In addition,
Algosport recently became one of the first providers to offer Bet Builder products for eSports titles such as FIFA 2020. These innovations have proved incredibly popular with operators, as eSports betting replaced some of the revenue lost due to Covid-related reductions in the sporting calendar.

Leigh Herdman, CEO at Algosport, concluded: ‘The signing of this deal, alongside the recently announced supplier agreement with EveryMatrix, makes for a really exciting time at Algosport and we look forward to providing INTRALOT clients around the world with our innovative products. 2020 has obviously been a particularly challenging year for the gambling industry, however we have big plans for Algosport in 2021 that will see the launch of exciting new products and services for our existing customers, as well as bringing aboard numerous new clients”

Anders comments: “I am excited to get stuck into my new role in such an innovative and fast-growing media company. Adverty provides unique ad formats, and its potential is huge – despite a challenging trading environment as we start the new year.
