Special Features

Wild Symbols

The symbol substituting Wild comes in a regular version as well as in a Random Wild version. A minimum of 2 and up to 5 horse shoe symbols might appear randomly placed on the reels turning symbols into Wilds.

Scatter Symbols

The image of the trophy functions as the Scatter and can trigger the Peter’s Classic Cup’s bonus round.

Peter’s Classic Cup

This feature combines free spins and horse race betting in one. Once this feature is triggered through the appearance of at least 3 Scatters on the reels in the activating round, you get to pick one of four horses that you think will win the race. Every horse offers you a game with a different volatility. Three of these horses are called after popular games produced by the same provider.

The horses are called Divine Fortune, Berry Max, Gonzo’s Quest and Tin Foil Hat. The latter name might be a dig to those players who believe that online slot machines are rigged. When you select Divine Fortune and it wins, you get 5000 times your stake as the red jockey moves along every time you hit a win with an A. Select Berry Max as the winner and every win made with a K results in the appearance of the purple jockey and a cash prize of 500 times your bet if this horse win the race. When you choose Gonzo’s Quest and it wins, you are awarded 100 times your bet as the green jockey moves along every time you hit a winning combination with a Q. Go for a Tin Foil Hat win and when you get it right you can claim 50 times your bet as every time you hit a win with a J the blue jockey passes along.

After you have made your selection the grid and the number of pay lines are extended to 5×4 and 32 pay lines in total. You then get to play with free spins while the four horses start racing the track. Every time you hit a win, your horse moves one position along the track. The first horse to move 4 positions wins and the feature ends. If you made your bet on the winning horse you can collect the cash prize related to it.

Bet Slip

The Bet Slip feature allows you to make a side bet in the main game on how many times a certain symbol will make an appearance in a certain number of spins. If you get it right, you are awarded a multiplier. The Bet Slip offers you a choice of the following bets:

• Play 11 Wild or Scatter symbols in 10 spins and get a multiplier of 5.85 on any wins

• Play 23 red, purple or green jockey symbols in 20 spins and get a multiplier of 16.40 on any wins

• Play 46 blue jockey or A and K symbols in 40 spins and receive a multiplier of 75

• Play 92 Q or J symbols in 80 spins and collect a multiplier of 12
You can engage the Bet Slip feature at any time in the main game.

Verdict

Scudamore’s Super Stakes slot game can be considered a successful attempt to combine two betting options, as the slot game with the horse racing theme has sports betting features incorporated. Even if you are not a big fan of horse racing, the game is still likely to appeal. Although the graphics of this slot are more than decent, they are not of the top-notch quality we are used to from game producer NetEnt. Yet, as the slot is pretty engaging – you are just happy with small wins in the Peter’s Classic Cup as with the bigger wins in general – there is plenty of slot game entertainment to be had. A pretty solid win potential of x5000 your stake is just great icing on this slot gaming cake.
