Players can win up to 10x their original bet, along with 15 re-triggering free games with a 3x multiplier if the wild Trophy symbols appear over reels 2,3 and 4.
In the Championship Bonus Round; players choose if they want to play Men's or Women's singles and get to select the type of serve before playing against the computer to determine the cash win, with ace serves bossting the multiplier.
