Michael Jackson King of Pop Slot
Moonwalk your way to success with the Michael Jackson King of Pop Slot from Bally Technologies. You may as well rock out to the music legend’s top tracks at the same time!
How to Play The Michael Jackson King of Pop Slot
The Michael Jackson King of Pop Slot is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot machine. The minimum bet per spin is 40p with the maximum resting at £80. Whilst the ‘minimum bet’ is a touch higher than many other slot machines out there, the maximum bet is far lower. This makes it a bit ‘middle of the road’ when it comes to pay outs.
As you have probably guessed by now, this game is based around Michael Jackson. When you dive into the game, you will be entertained by some of his greatest songs. Although, to us it was a great disappointment that we didn’t really have all that much control over the song that was played.
There are a few other slot machines out there which do give you control (Guns N’ Roses Slot being one of them) which was sorely disappointing. The theme is wrapped up with items that Michael was famous for (not a pet monkey in sight, sadly). This includes gloves, hats, glasses, and the feet of a dancer.
Most of your time in this game is going to be spent diving into the numerous in game features and bonus rounds the game offers. So, that is what we are going to talk about next.
In Game Features & Extras
There are a number of features in this game. Many of them will be familiar to you if you have played slot machines extensively in the past. Of course, all of them have been given a little bit of a twist in order to fit in with the Michael Jackson theming of the game:
When you are playing the base game, somewhere between 2 and 5 Wilds (Moonwalk images) may appear on the reels. These can appear on any reel except for the first. As with wilds in other games, it is able to replace any other symbol in the game except the Bonus or Jackpot Symbol.
One of the biggest benefits of Moonwalk Wilds is the fact that if they form part of a winning combination, your winnings will end up being doubled!
- From time to time, these symbols may turn into something known as ‘stacked wilds’. If this happens, then you may end up winning big. Stacked wilds will actually spread to the rest of the reel. This can open up the potential for a whole host of combinations. Imagine if 5 stacked wilds appeared! You would be netting yourself a nice bit of cash.
- Wheel Bonus Feature: If the Bonus symbols appear on the middle three reels, you will get a single spin of the bonus wheel. There are a number of different prizes on offer here. Cash prizes and free spins seem to be the most common. In some cases, you may get two spins of the reel. The first spin will give you a cash prize, the second spin will allow you to spin for a multiplier in order to boost that cash prize.
- Beat It Free Games Feature: this can only be won from the Wheel Bonus. Here, you will get 10 free spins. Wilds can appear during the spins and they will remain sticky.
- Smooth Criminal Free games: You will get five free spins. On the first spin, the final reel will be fully wild. On the second, both 4 and 5 will. On the 3rd spin, 3 and 4 will be wild. On the 4th spin, this will move to reels 2 and 3. On the fifth spin, it will be the 1st and 2nd reels that become wild.

Is Michael Jackson King of Pop Slot Worth a Spin?
Theming (and the amazing soundtrack) aside, this is a brilliant game to play. The number of features that you have at your disposal here will give you engrossed for a long time. There is something incredibly addictive about the Wheel Spin feature.
That being said, the game is not without its shortcomings. Bally Technologies are, of course, not as big as some of the other slot machine companies out there. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, they do still make amazing games. The problem is that their UI is not as sophisticated right now.
That being said, the Michael Jackson King of Pop Slot is still going to provide you with a fantastic time, particularly if you love the guy’s music!
