It’s that time of year again – time to wheel out the strawberries and the Pimms and settle down to watch world-class tennis in the glorious sunshine. OK, so the sunshine can never be guaranteed, but the great tennis is, and us Brits have more to be excited about than most. UK fave Andy Murray will be defending his position as 2013 champion, and hoping to take the golden trophy for the second year running.
Should Murray manage to bring the magic to centre court once more, he’d be the first British singles player in 78 years to win Wimbledon two years running. And thisweek he faces friend and practice partner Kevin Anderson in order to take another step closer to lifting that cup.
South African Anderson is number 20 seed, and stands at a formidable 6ft 8in. The expectation will certainly be on Murray, but where there’s expectation, there can be pressure – a factor that can cause even the best sportsperson to crumble.
There’s no such pressure when you play the Tennis Stars online casino slot game at Jackpot247.com. This fun Tennis-themed game is perfect for Wimbledon fans, and the ideal way to pass the time between matches. Put on your brightest whites and settle down for a few serves of this 5 reel 40 payline slot, which features all your favourite tennis icons, including a Wild symbol displaying the golden cup that Murray is going to be fighting to keep hold of. Trainers, balls, players and tennis racket scatter symbols also feature, and the game is accompanied by an authentic sounding tennis commentary.
One of the most exciting aspects of the Tennis Stars game is that it pays out up to 5000 x your bet, when you match 5 x a tennis player symbol. The scatter symbol unlocks a championship bonus game, where you play a single tennis match against the computer. The result determines a cash win that will be added to your slot total. The golden cup Wild symbol gives you free games, and boosts your pot by 10 x your total bet.
Another fun element to the Tennis Stars slot is the Gamble feature, which adds a card element to this online casino slot. You’re dealt a hand of random cards and all you have to decide is whether the next card will be red or black. A simple but exciting side game to add extra interest to your slot game experience.
It’s unlikely that Andy Murray, or the Wimbledon spectators, will need more excitement through the tournament – he has some stiff competition to see off, including the finalist he beat last year, Nivak Djokovic, who is current number one seed and the bookies favourite to steal the title in 2014. Popular Swiss player Roger Federer will be serving up some tough competition as usual, with an impressive start to the tournament, whereas those in the know have their eyes on Bulgarian rising star Grigor Dimitrov.
So settle down with your strawberries and the Tennis Stars slot for your summer Wimbledon fix. Fingers crossed both yours, and Murray’s, luck will be in!
