Play Tennis Slots At Online Casinos


It is the time of the year when tennis takes center stage in the world of sports. The French Open is in its last few days and Wimbledon will begin later this month. The sports loving players at online casinos are heading to tennis themed slot machines. This article reviews two such games.

The online casino software provider Playtech has a slot game titled Tennis Stars in its portfolio. It is a 40 payline slot game with four rows of symbols across the reels. The symbols with the highest payouts are the male and female tennis players. Some of the other tennis related symbols are shoes, trophy and rackets. The usual playing card symbols are also used. The trophy acts as the wild symbol but it does much more. When it appears simultaneously on reels 2, 3 and 4 it awards a payout of 10 times the total bet and triggers 15 free spins with tripled line payouts. The pair of tennis rackets awards scatter payouts and triggers the Championship Bonus game on the second screen. In this feature a tennis game is played on the screen. You can select the male player or the female player and a flat serve or a slice serve. Your bonus amount depends on the game score and the number of aces served. Tennis Stars includes the Playtech gamble game and is live at Playtech online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion Casino.

The Microgaming tennis themed game is called Centre Court. It is a regular nine payline slot game. Centre Court is more representative of Wimbledon because the reels are set in the background of a grass court. The symbols on the reels include four tennis players in action, trophy, tennis ball, Match Point logo and playing card icons. The trophy symbol is the wild symbol and awards the jackpot line payout. The tennis ball awards scatter payouts, which are multiplied by the total bet. Three or more tennis ball symbols also trigger 18 free spins with a mystery multiplier that can range from 2x to 5x. Apart from this there is another interesting aspect to the free spins feature. The wild symbol can appear stacked across an entire reel. This further increases the possibility of payouts. Centre Court does not offer a bonus game on the second screen but includes Microgaming's popular gamble game. Centre Court can be played at all Microgaming online casinos such as Lucky Nugget and Ruby Fortune.
