Michael Jackson King of Pop for a theme has the life and achievements of this pop star legend. The design of the game is very colorful and the background music featuring some of Michaels greatest hits can leave you spinning and singing along for hours. The overall game play is dynamic and fast, just as most of Michaels songs were, so there is no way you will get bored while spinning the reels.
The developer behind this video slot game is Bally Technologies. This provider decided to take the land based casino version of this game and bring it live to online operators. Many players will agree that this slot is very similar to Guns and Roses from NetEnt, so at least now we know where the designers from NetEnt got their inspiration.
How to Play
Michael Jackson King of Pop has 25 active pay lines distributed over 5 reels and 3 rows. Still the minimum bet to play this game is set at $0.40 per spin, because the extra $0.15 go to activate the bonus features. The maximum bet per spin is set at $80 and after adjusting your bet size all that is left is to hit the spin button.
A great man like Michael Jackson truly deserves a great video slot game in his tribute. King of Pop is packed with interesting bonus features which make the overall game play more interesting and can award some great wins. During base play the Moonwalk Wilds feature can be triggered randomly. Here you have a chance to win from 2-5 wilds on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.
They will double all wining combinations in which they substitute and can also have a double function if they land on a Bonus or Jackpot symbol. This feature can award great wins depending on the number and position of the extra wild symbols across the reels.
There is another random feature that can be triggered during base play. It is called the Stacked Wilds Feature and can award up to two wild reels on the screen. From the classic bonus features this game has a Wheel Bonus. It is triggered by landing 3 bonus symbols on the 3 central reels. Here you get one spin on the wheel and can win free spins, credit prizes or credit prizes with a random multiplier.
There are two free spins bonus features that can be won on the Wheel bonus. The first is called Beat it Free games. Here you are awarded with 10 free spins with a sticky wilds feature. The wilds can land on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 only. The bonus and jackpot symbols are not available during this feature so you have a greater chance of hitting more winning combinations.
The second free spins bonus is called the Smooth Criminal Free Games. Here you will get only 5 free games with wild reels. In the first free spin the fifth reel is turned wild, during the second spin reels 4 and 5 are wild, in the third spin reels 3 and 4 are wild, in the fourth spin reels 2 and 3 are wild and in the last spin reels 1 and 2 are wild.
Michael Jackson King of Pop can award some decent wins in the bonus features. The biggest wins should come in the Beat it Free games feature because of the sticky wild feature. With 10 free spins and some luck you can get a big number of wilds early in the bonus and end up with wins well over 100 x bet.
Michael Jackson King of Pop is a mid variance video slot game, which can produce some decent wins and a lot of playtime for your invested money. Base play wins are small to medium and the random features can keep your balance leveled awarding medium to big wins. The bonus feature is really great and it’s all up to the games mood and your luck which feature you will trigger.
Both free spins features in the Wheel bonus are great but our choice would be the Beat it Free games. The wild symbol lands quite often during base play and it should be the same in the bonus round. With many wilds held on the reels for one or two spins you can easily get wins of 100 x bet and more.
