5 Smashing Pokies to Celebrate Wimbledon

We’re getting to that time of the year again, when for a short period during the English summer, the players all wear white, the tennis is played on grass, and everyone gets bloody hyped up about Wimbledon with its Pimm’s and lemonade, strawberries and cream, and working out which celebrity is in the royal box! So, guess what… your mate Joe Fortune isn’t going to miss out on the action! I’m here bringing you my list of smashing pokies to play during Wimbledon.


Fruit Party

Every year, some journo bangs on about how many strawberries get eaten at Wimbledon. Now, I know they go alright, but jeez, why just have one type of fruit when I can offer you a complete fruity party!  Savour the flavour of this sweet, 7-row x 7-reel cluster style pokie, where if you land 5 or more matching fruits of symbols next to each other horizontally or vertically, you’re on your way to picking up a baseline winner.

Be sure to keep your eye well trained for the Juicy Win Multipliers. Every symbol in the game can carry a multiplier, which increases your returns and makes each winning cluster even more rewarding. The fun gets even more fruity when you land 3 or more scatters to start the Free Spins Frenzy. With added multipliers, you can smash yourself a return of 256x in a single spin and up to a massive 5,000x your bet during the Free Spins Feature.

Magic Ball

Did you know that 6 balls are used at any one time in a tennis match, they are then switched after the first 7 games, and then after every 9 games… Occasionally, you notice certain players getting superstitious about using a certain ball when serving, so in their honour, I thought I’d suggest giving my magic ball pokie a play.

Magic Ball Multi-Chance is a 3x row by 5x reel grid pokie that has 10 paylines, which serves up a clairvoyant journey where the payouts are as exciting as the predictions. Spin through the royal cards, a wise old owl, a psychic pendant, and the magic potion as you go in search of the Magic Ball that acts as both a Wild and the Scatter! Magic Balls substitute for all other symbols and help you land winning combos. When you land 3 Magic Balls in one hit, you’ll trigger 12 Free Spins, where a special expanding symbol could help wallop your prize up to a champion 10,000x your stake!


Sugar Smash

Wimbledon has been known as the Serve and Volley tournament with Smashes, which pretty much dominated the men’s game during the 1990s. With a change in balls and other tweaks to try to bring more rallies back, the serve and smash isn’t quite as potent as it once was. But in honour of those days, I reckon my sugar smash pokie is well worth dropping in and giving a spin.

Freshen up, as this Sugar Smash really hits the mark! This is a 4x row by 5x reel pokie with 50 paylines, where you will find lollipops, candies, lollies, and plenty more sugary treats. The Sugar Smash logo is the scatter, so you’ll be wanting to land 3 or more of them in play to trigger up to 25 Free Spins. During the feature, the reels are rearranged to produce 4 different reel set-ups, with multipliers and stacked wilds giving you even more chances to win and smash an even bigger winner!

Royal Bets

It wasn’t too long ago that whenever players came onto court at Wimbledon, they used to have to bow or courtesy to the Royal Box… Nowadays, with this tradition having disappeared quicker than a Mark Philippoussis serve, it is always interesting taking bets on which member of the Royal family or celebrity will be present at Wimbledon this year. It got me thinking that my royal bets pokie could be a bit of fun to try out as a nod to the royals!

During regular play, keep an eye out for the Cash Spin feature. This triggers randomly during a spin, and when it does, all the coin symbols on your screen are collected and paid to you instantly. Next up, there is the free spins bonus round, which is triggered by hitting 3, 4, or 5 of the scatter symbols and awards you 15 free spins. This pokie also has another ripper feature called the King’s Bet. This costs 200 coins per spin, but in return, you’ll play on a different set of reels where only coin symbols show up, and when they do, that is a winning return for you.

If you manage to land a coin in all 15 slots on the grid, you’ll trigger the Super Re-Spins bonus.

In this bonus game, you get three re-spins, and the coin symbols stay in place. The feature ends when you either fill the screen or miss with three consecutive spins.


SO 80’s

What a decade the 1980s was for tennis at Wimbledon… the headbands, the death of wooden racquets, the emergence of Boris Becker, and of course our very own Evonne Goolagong Cawley and Pat Cash winning single’s titles too. So why not take a trip down memory lane and enjoy trying out my SO 80’s pokie… This nostalgic 5-reel pokie has 15 paylines, and jeez it takes you back to a time when boom-boxes, perms and spandex were all the latest rage, and John McEnroe was shouting “You can’t be serious that ball was on the line!?”.

The breakdancer is the scatter symbol, and landing three or more of them triggers 15 free spins, during which you can re-trigger 10 more free spins. The wild symbol will replace any other symbol to form winning combinations, with the expanding wild appearing on reels 1, 3, and 5.  As with most pokies like this, all wins pay left to right except the scatters, which pay when you land 3 or more anywhere.

Game, Set and Match

There you go, tennis fans, a few pokies for you to give a nudge to over the course of the Wimbledon Championships. According to my calendar, it all gets underway on Mon 1 July at 8:00 pm AEST and finishes late Sun 14 July. Let’s hope our Aussies go well over in London and do us proud.
