Centre Court Slots

Centre-CourtWith Centre Court, the players that will be most happy will be the ones that love the game of tennis. It’s what the theme of the game is all about, as this Microgaming slot machine focuses on tennis players in the middle of a game. Both men and women appear in the symbols, but the slot doesn’t choose to focus on one of them in particular, the game being the hero in this case.

The game appears to be an older slot, offering 5 reels and only 9 lines. There are free spins, up to 5x multipliers, scatters and wilds, all great features to have, especially with top payouts of only $2,500.

Features of Centre Court

All the features that the slot offers are standard for a slot machine, but some things have been improved, like the wild symbol that is stacked during the free spins. Scatter symbols and higher than average multipliers were also used in this game.

Two special feature symbols are part of Centre Court. The main one would probably be the wild, represented by the Gold Trophy. In the base game, this symbol is a regular one, occupying a single position at a time and trying to help you out when it can. It helps you by substituting for other symbols, as long as that results in new combos forming up. Certain conditions have to be met first though, as the wild is only the last missing element for the combo. Up to five wild Gold Trophies will be responsible of their own payouts when they appear together on a payline, the 1,000x jackpot being offered this way.

The Tennis Ball is the scatter of Centre Court. You will need between three and five Balls in random spots on the five reels, and if that happens you get access to free spins. You also get paid rather well by the same scatter symbols, when they appear at least two times. The biggest prize of the game is given by the scatter, awarding 500 times the bet with five symbols.

Free Games Feature

The free spins are special in a few different ways. They are started by 3 to 5 Tennis Ball scatters, and you can get 18 free spins this way, with multipliers that reach 5x. The multiplier is actually chosen at random, and it will be between 2x and 5x each round.

All wilds that appear in these free games will be stacked, so you get up to three of them on the reel during each spin, if they do decide to show up.

Betting options and jackpots

Even though you can use up to 10 coins per line, their denomination doesn’t go further than $0.25, so you can use line wagers of only $2.50 and total bets of $22.50.

The slot’s jackpot is a 1,000x line bet multiple, so $2,500 is the best payout offered. The 5x multipliers that can be reached during the free spins can improve it significantly, but it’s still not a life changing amount. You can also win up to $11,125 by getting five scatter symbols, which award 500x the bet.

Design and symbols

I haven’t seen that many good looking tennis themed slot machines so far, and while Centre Court is not going to win any prizes for its design, I’d say it’s still quite a bit better than many competitors that it has out there. At the same time, while they used quite a few playing cards, at least they made the effort to include some tennis balls or player equipment next to them.


Symbols: Gold Trophy (1,000x, wild), Tennis Ball (scatter, 500x bet), Match Point Logo (800x), Serve (700x), Return Serve (500x), Backhand (400x), Forehand (300x), Ace (150x), King (100x), Queen (75x), Jack (60x) and Ten (50x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s worth playing if you’re a fan of tennis, and you’re looking for a slot machine themed around it. I wouldn’t say it’s good enough otherwise, not when you ignore the theme and go for one of the thousands of other slots available these days.

You will find Centre Court at any online casino which chooses to use software from Microgaming, playable either for free or for real money.
