Michael Jackson is one of the most respected singers to have ever lived, and he's been immortalised in several different ways. He's now available as part of the online slot game released by Bally Technologies and SG Interatactive, entitled Michael Jackson: King of Pop. So get ready to play along withhis biggest tracks and do the moonwalk when you win!
There are probably very few people who haven't heard of the pop superstar, who is well-known for his hits such as 'Bad' from the album of the same name, 'Billie Jean' from the Thriller album, and 'Black or White' from his Dangerous release. As the eighth child of the renowned Jackson family, he made his professional début into the world of music in 1964 with his elder brothers, before going solo and having a career spanning over 40 years until his death in June of 2009. However, even since then, he is still one of the world's most talked about, listened to and respected artists. That's why, when you play this slot release from Bally, you'll definitely be getting your groove on as his tracks play along with your game play.
Respect the King!
And we're not talking about Elvis there, either. As far as this game is concerned, you'll find yourself playing through a selection of five reels and three rows, which is a fairly generic layout for a video slot. It's here that you'll find the various different symbols, and these start with the often seen A, J, K, Q, 9 and 10 icons. However, the remainder of the symbols are all very theme relative, so you'll find an icon of Jackson's shoes as he stands on tiptoes, another one of his trademark sunglasses. His frequently seen black hat makes up a fourth icon, while the sparkling, white glove is the fourth and final high paying icon.
Alongside its reels, rows and icons, Michael Jackson: King of Pop has also had 25 different pay lines included into it as well. These cannot be changed in any way, so you'll always be betting on this amount. However, you do have the option of adjusting your wager for every spin you make, and this is alterable between its minimum of $0.40 and it increases up to $80 per round. You'll also find a selection of the singer's best hits playing at the same time as you spin the reels, and each of its icons are designed with very high quality graphics.
Enjoy a Selection of Thriller Specials
This game has had a number of different specialities incorporated into it, and these begin with the wild symbol. This is represented by the glittering 'WILD' image, and as a wild, it will stand in for all other symbols on the reels in order to form a winning combination. The only exception to this rule is the bonus and jackpot icon. There are also additional 'Moonwalk Wilds' included in the game, and these can appear at random during any base game spin. Between two and five of these can show up, and if they're included in a win, it will double your pay out.
As far as the bonus icon is concerned, this is represented by the shot of Michael himself. This one will show up on reels two, three and four only, and it initiates the 'Wheel Bonus' upon doing so. One spin of the wheel is awarded to you, and through this round, you can win freespins, coin wins, or coin wins with an additonal spin of the wheel.
If you do win the freespins, you're taken to one of two rounds, the 'Smooth Criminal Free Games' or the 'Beat It Free Games'. For the former of these, you're awarded five freespins, and on each of these, differing reels become completely wild. Bonus and jackpot icons are not available during this particular feature. The latter free games round will see you awarded 10 freespins, and any wild to appear during which will remain in position until it comes to an end. Wilds may only appear on reels two, three, four and five.
Finally, the only other special feature is the jackpot icon, represented by Jackson's eyes. Should five of these show up on a winning pay line, you'll receive a huge multiplier of up to 2,500 times your wager placed!
This Is It!
Michael Jackson may no longer be alive to make music, but his spirit certainly lives on through this game. It's entertaining, features high quality graphics, has a nice range of special features, and also allows players to listen to timeless songs.
