Tennis Stars Slots

Tennis-StarsTennis Stars is a Playtech game that, as you probably imagine, is themed around the game of tennis. The focus in it is on two players that represent all the celebrities of the sport, one male (ATP), the other female (WTA). Their names are not given, being simply representative of the popular tennis stars on TV, no matter what their name is. Tennis is a very expensive sport to play in the long run, so despite being enjoyed by many, there aren’t quite that many players that practice it regularly, not professionally at least. Those that make it on the big scene have to put an obscene amount of work into it, which is an extra reason to celebrate them in a game like this.

A 5 reel/40 payline game, Tennis Stars offers its players access to a variety of interesting features, at the top of which would be the Championship Bonus round, plus its free spins, multipliers, scatters and wilds. As the biggest prizes offered, you will find jackpots of up to $50,000.

Features of Tennis Stars

The slot’s main feature would probably be the wild that also acts as the scatter, capable of also awarding the slot’s free spins and their multiplier. The Championship Bonus round is triggered by a different scatter symbol.

The Gold Trophy Cup serves as the slot’s main feature, the symbol that will substitute for another if it is on the right payline and surrounded by matching icons that allow for the new combination to be formed. The same wild symbol is also used in the role of the scatter, though it will only give you the free spins, without any cash prizes. The reason for it is the presence of the wild/scatter on the reels 2, 3 and 4 only, so you can’t really form a paying combination of any kind with them.

Free Games Feature

Getting access to the Tennis Stars bonus game is possible only with the help of three Gold Trophy scatters, on the three middle reels at the same time. If that happens, you are given a prize that is the equivalent of 10 round bets, plus 15 spins for free and x3 multipliers that will triple all the prizes that will come your way.


Championship Bonus

This is the scatter symbol that will give away prizes. Showing you a picture of two tennis rackets, this scatter can appear on all the reels and whenever you have at least two it will award a prize. These prizes go from 2x to 100x the bet, the exact amount depending on the wager you’ve made and on how many symbols are present.


There is a tennis game as well in this feature, where you pick if you want a women’s match or one where two men are playing. You’re the one serving, choosing between the flat serve or the slice. The game is yours either way, but your luck will determine if aces are served, which will give you extra prizes.


Betting options and jackpots

Tennis Stars has a total of 40 paylines and each one can receive a bet of up to $10. These line bets take 1 to 10 coins each, while their denomination ranges from $0.05 to $1. The total bet, when all the lines are selected, is worth $400.

As for the top jackpot, it offers an above average return on whatever investment you decided to make, giving you 5,000x back for that line bet you used. The cash value goes up to $50,000, as long as you used the highest denomination and maxed out the number of coins per line.

Design and symbols

There is a lot of tennis related imagery in this slot. The two stars are the female and the male tennis players, each of them with their own symbol. The tennis court is shown at the top, behind the logo area. The color green is used quite often, especially since all the playing cards are based on it. It’s a nice game, well designed and the themed symbols which are used got plenty of attention from the developers.

Symbols: Gold Trophy (wild), Tennis Racket (scatter, 100x round’s wager), Male Player (5,000x), Female Player (5,000x), Tennis Shoes (1,000x), Tennis Balls (1,000x), Ace (400x), King (400x), Queen (250x), Jack (250x), Ten (100x) and Nine (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s the perfect game to play as a fan of tennis, a noble sport that deserves a bit more attention from slot developers than it’s been getting so far. Feature wise it also does quite well, the part that’s less attractive being the payout/betting systems.

The Tennis Stars slot machine is offered through the Playtech platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
