Centre Court is another pokie in a long line of Microgaming sporting titles, albeit one that tweaks the standard layout slightly and therefore looks a little different to the likes of Cricket Star, Football Star and Rugby Star. To play this pokie for yourself head to Spin Palace, an established Microgaming casino that has hundreds of available games.
Centre Court has an RTP of 95.51%, which helps to balance out what is essentially a very poor aesthetic. The graphics are sharp, but whereas the “…Star” sport pokies used a combination of realistic illustrations and animations to create symbols that resembled real players and teams, Centre Court uses a very simplistic and cartoony style, and one with only generic images.
Another disappointing aspect is the fact that the highest symbol pays just 800x when you land 5 of them, although this is countered somewhat by the fact that there is a high in-game jackpot, coming in at 450,000 coins.
There is a minimum bet of $0.09 on this pokie, and that goes all of the way to a maximum bet of $22.50, which is probably a little on the short side for some. The game works on a credit/coin system, and you can set the value of these from just $0.01.
The main bonus round on Centre Court is a free spins round, and one where you can pickup as many as 18 free spins, all of which come with a stacked wild feature and a multiplier of up to 5x. There is also a gamble feature, and this can be used on any winning payline, including those in the free spins round.
This pokie is a little disappointing. We are big fans of the other sporting pokies from Microgaming, but this is probably the worst we have played, with limited payouts and some very basic graphics.
