Centre Court is a slot which takes us to the centre court of Wimbledon for a game of tennis. On the reels, you’ll find a selection of tennis themed symbols. These include both male and female player tennis players and a tennis ball. You’ll also find the golden trophy handed to the winner of the men’s singles title at Wimbledon. This is not the newest slot in the MicroGaming range, though it does have plenty of charm.
The highlight of this game is the free spins bonus round, where you’ll see a random multiplier added to any winning spin. Wins can be huge during the feature, with a max pay out of an incredible 450,000 coins.
Like many other online slots today, this game has the very familiar 5×3 reel configuration. The game has nine win-lines in total, which will appeal to those who enjoy more spins for their money. The standard symbols are mostly made up by a combination of tennis players and playing card symbols.
The highest paying standard symbol is ‘Match Point’ which pays 800 coins. A male tennis player in the middle of a serve is next on the pay table. Land five in a row and you’ll win 700 coins. A female tennis player with a two-handed backhand has a top prize of 500, while a male player with a backhand pays 400 coins. A female with a booming forehand has a max win amount of 300 coins. The playing cards complete the standard symbols. The Ace has a top win of 150 coins through to the ten which pays 50 coins.
The golden trophy acts as the wild symbol. This offers up the highest pay-out of the entire slot, with 1,000 coins heading your way for five in a row. Being the wild, this will substitute for any other symbol in the game apart from the scatter.
Every time you land a win you’ll have the option of taking a gamble. You’ll have two options. The first of these is a ‘double your money’ option. To double up you’ll need to correctly predict the colour of a playing card. The second option is to multiply your win amount by four. To do this you’ll have to correctly predict the suit of a playing card. Of course, if you take a gamble and get it wrong, your win amount will be gone.
A tennis ball is the final symbol in the game and this acts as the scatter symbol. Land two or more and you’ll win an immediate scatter prize. Land the minimum 2 and you’ll win double your stake all the way up to 500x your stake for the maximum five scatters. Three or more scatters will also activate the free spins feature.
You’ll find yourself with an impressive 18 free spins. Not only that but you’ll find two added bonuses within the feature. First, the wild symbol is stacked throughout the free spins. This will give these spins an immediate boost, as wins will be much easier to come by. Second, any win you have will be the subject of a mystery multiplier. This multiplier will be 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x. Land the perfect spin where the wild fills every reel and you hit the 5x multiplier and you’ll win an incredible 450,000 coins!
This slot is played out against the backdrop of the centre court. You have the striking green of the grass and the white lines around the frame of the reels. Graphically, the symbols are a little basic, although they do a good job of adding action to the reels. There is some nice animation with both the tennis ball and the trophy symbols. The game could have been improved with further animation with the four tennis players. An easy listening soundtrack plays throughout, which is joined by the clicking and whirring of the reels.
Centre Court is a slot which will certainly appeal to tennis fans. Yes, the graphics could be better and the same could be said about the sound. And the fact that the feature is a free spins round doesn’t really make the game unique. However, the feature makes the game. You have stacked wilds and added multipliers in every spin, meaning that this is a feature you’ll want to play. The pay outs during the feature can be enormous and for this reason alone, this is worth playing.
