Here is a sentence from a platform game app:
Without any doubt, it’s a great way to add stakes to the platforming.
The game has a revised gameplay in which a player can start from the most recent checkpoint and does not have to start from the very beginning if she loses her life by hitting danger.
The player has to jump and collect certain items. It's a one-tap game. The above-mentioned sentence precedes the sentences describing the new feature which allow the player to start from the most recent checkpoints in place of starting from the very beginning.
I am not sure which of the meanings of the word stake fits here.
