Badminton is my number one favourite watchable men's active sports event, besides Formula 1 Racing, but not football as for most other guys. I guess that makes me not like most other guys, but I like it that way. For women's active sports, almost anything will do, because I tend to watch the women more than what they are doing, hahaha. When it comes to tennis, like in this Centre Court game, hmm, I do like to watch tennis matches at Wimbledon and other renowned world-class avenues, but that's only seasonal, so not much of watching can be done anyway, the same with badminton too. Playing tennis slot games, hmm, not really up to my taste to tell you the truth, but for trying it out sake, anything goes, the same as for women too. Nah, that doesn't make me a weird guy in any way. That makes me a man in many ways. Hehehe.
Centre Court plays with just 9 paylines, so it doesn't cost a bomb to play it as many times as you like, but that doesn't matter to me at all. What matters most is the game being addictively interesting, and with very good huge wins potential, like that outlaw game for example. Can never stop playing that game. Would never stop playing it either. Yes, it is that addictive and obsessive, but I love it. You too hah? Not surprising at all mate! Centre Court is quite okay to play, for short periods of time, but the game could never hold my interest for long, for obvious reasons, as mentioned earlier.
The Trophy is the Wild symbol, 5 of which pay 1000x the line bet, which is very low, and comes Stacked in the Free Spins game, but not in the base game. Why? Don't ask me, ask you-know-who. It doesn't double any wins with it, it doesn't expand, it only substitute as and when required. Almost a dumb Wild. The Tennis Ball is the Scatter symbol, pays 500x the total bet for 5 of them, and getting 3 or more of them award a Free Spins game. No mention as to how many free spins would be awarded, but mine always started with 18 free spins with a random multiplier of 2x up to 5x. Could the initial number of free spins be different? I really don't know. Match Point is the next highest paying symbol, paying 800x the line bet for 5 of them, the Man Player at 700x, the Lady Player at 500x, and all others from 400x down to 50x. Overall, a very low paytable that couldn't support any huge wins, but perhaps some decent big wins, but only if won in the free spins.
Not being my favourite kind of game, I have not played much of it, but the few times that I had played it, the end results were not too bad at all. I've had low wins of just 1x - 15x my total bet, but I've also had decent wins of up to 99x my bet too, just falling short of breaking the 100x. Nothing more than that so far.
With a very low paytable, nothing could make Centre Court that interesting enough for me. Even the Free Spins game cannot be retriggered, but what makes it worse, is the fact that out of 18 free spins, only less than half would pay something. The worse I had was only 2 small-paying spins out of 18 spins, or 11% of the total free spins. Sheesh! How much lower can Microgaming games go?!
