NetEnt has recently decided to team up with highly decorated jockey legend Peter Scudamore MBE in order to make its flagship sports-related product. The title itself is using Scu’s likeness for the image and real footage from his racing days in addition to bonus in-game options. Scu’s iconic voice will be used whenever the slot’s free spin option comes up. The horse racing slot director and director of many other games, Bryan Upton, states that to have such a horse racing legend as Peter Scudamore on board with the sports title is a massive deal, given that horse racing fans and slot enthusiasts alike will be excited with the game’s 2019 launch.
As for Scu himself, he said that NetEnt’s willingness to develop fresh and exciting products makes the collaboration between him and the company quite worth it. The slots game will be one to remember and one players will enjoy that recaptures the essence of how thrilling horse racing can be.
Somewhere around the 2018/2019 National Hunt season is when the exact time of release for the horse racing slot will be revealed to the world. At the time of its release, the hope is that it takes advantage of the excitement the season and its popular attractions bring. The slot will be released alongside Vikings and Narcos slots. The three slots will become a part of NetEnt’s extensive group of published slots such as Jumanji, Guns and Roses, Motörhead as well as Planet of the Apes.
The champion horse racing personality was born in 1958. Recognized simply as Scu, his first race took place in 1978, a race that kickstarted his outstanding 15-year career and began his rise to prominence. As a jockey for Martin Pipe, Scudamore rode with a total of 1,678 winning horses, broke a record for the most wins in a season with 221 in 1988-1989, put in 13 wins at the Cheltenham Festival with two Champion Hurdles (Celtic Shot in 89 and Granville Again In 93), won a Queen Mother Champion Chase, two Hennessy Cognac Gold Cups, four Welsh Nationals (with two won on Bonanza Boy), two Scottish Nationals and one Mackeson Gold Cup.
Following his retirement in 1993 and a win on Sweet Duke at Ascot, he became as well-renowned a horse racing trainer as he was a jockey and has been recognised as one of the greatest and most identified horse racing experts.
