NetEnt Launching a New Sports Betting Game

NetEnt are one of the biggest and most recognisable names when it comes to slot game development. They have their games places on many different new sports betting sites and their new title, due for release in 2019, is set to capture the imagination of many sports betting fans.

NetEnt have teamed up with eight-time British champion jockey Peter Scudamore to create a horse racing themed slot game named Scudamore’s Super Stakes. The aim with this title is to bring a familiar look to slot games for sports betting players, in the hope of creating more crossover gamers.

Based in Scandinavia, NetEnt will be launching their new horse racing slot game in early 2019, making sure it is available before the Cheltenham Festival. The festival takes place in March, so you can expect the new title to land anytime in the first two months of the year. Scudamore is an instantly recognisable name in the world of horse racing and is especially linked to the national hunt game. With huge races at the Cheltenham Festival and millions of pounds of bets placed, NetEnt will be hoping those customers give their new game a go and turn it into a huge success.

Scudamore’s Super Stakes will be the first time that NetEnt have gone into the sports field, so this is a very important game for them, and if successful it could lead to further sports games being developed.

Those playing will get to see real-life horse racing content inside the game, and a range of highly volatile game mechanics, which is very similar to horse racing as a betting sport. Big jackpots are on offer to players, which is something that will certainly pull punters in, whether they are big horse racing fans or not.

The game has come about thanks to the deal with Scudamore, with NetEnt wanting a recognisable face and voice to front their new game. Without Scudamore, it is likely that this game is never made and released, so he is certainly going to play an important role.

The Cheltenham Festival is an important week for punters and bookmakers, and the association with Scudamore will take players back to when he was a jockey. He had a 15-year riding career, and during that time he rode 13 Cheltenham Festival winners, as well as being champion jockey eight times. After retiring from race-riding, Scudamore was awarded an MBE for his services to racing, and he continues to be very close to the action thanks to his partner Lucinda Russell.

He is the assistant trainer in the Russell yard, offering his vast experience to her and her horses, which can only be a good thing for the yard. When Scudamore manages to get away from the yard and do media work, you will regularly hear his voice on BBC Radio, where he updates as their horse racing expert.

The new game Scudamore’s Super Stakes will be released in early 2019.
