Centre Court Details Page
The software is excellent as is expected from Microgaming. A great deal of customization is offered in speed control, sound options, BET MAX button and Auto Play. In the Auto Play the convenience of starting 5 or 10 auto play spins without going through the set up is appreciated. Game statistics are also provided for those who are interested.
Easy to Understand (10)
The rules and the payouts are clearly explained within the game itself and there should be little need to consult the Help section.
Graphics & Sounds (8)
The graphics are bright and sharp. The audio has some high points like the cheering of the crowd. The animations are a disappointment. A slot game with a sporting theme should have provided better animation. For example some tennis strokes could have been executed.
Theme and Concept (10)
Sports based slots have their own following and tennis fans will love this slot despite some drawbacks. There is no other popular slot game devoted to tennis. The Wimbledon theme has been executed perfectly. The green background replicates the grass center court. The tennis player symbols stand out because they have been crafted realistically. Center Court has been released in the Wimbledon month, which will contribute to its instant popularity.
Game Features (9)
Center Court provides both wild and scatter symbols. The wild symbol also offers the highest payout but does not multiply the payouts. It appears as a stacked symbol during payouts. The scatter symbol offers scatter payouts and triggers the free spins bonus feature. This is made interesting because of a mystery multiplier. The only drawback as far as features are concerned is the absence of a bonus game on the second screen.
Betting Options (9)
The betting options in Center Court offer great flexibility. Players can adjust coin denomination, number of lines and number of coins per line. However the slot game has only 9 paylines and this restricts the total bet range, which varies from 0.01 to 22.50.
Center Court does not offer a progressive jackpot. Slot games without progressives usually offer attractive fixed jackpots, but this is not the case with Center Court. The highest fixed jackpot of 1000 coins is disappointing. Tennis fans will play this game because of the thematic interest, but not those looking for payout opportunities.
