You’ll Love the New Michael Jackson The King Of Pop Pokie By Bally
Michael Jackson aka The King Of Pop is one of the most famous artists in the world. Even though he is not with us anymore, his work and his life will never be forgotten. Many software providers created branded video pokie games with a celebrity theme, so Bally Technologies decided to create Michael Jackson King of Pop and pay tribute to this artist.
Their first version of the game was only available at land based casinos and was a big hit among players. That’s why Bally Technologies decided to launch an online version of the game, giving us home based gamblers a chance to spin the reels.
The game design is great and it is very similar to Guns N Roses coming from NetEnt with their Legend pokies collection. Still the animations and visual effects are more attractive in Michael Jackson King of Pop and it is our top choice among the two. The animations in the game feature Michael’s best performances and are fun to watch.
The background music constantly reminds us of his greatest songs and is a perfect addition to the game theme. Beside the great visual appearance, Michael Jackson King of Pop has 25 pay lines, with a $0.40 minimum bet per spin and added payouts to the features in the game.
There are several bonus features which can be triggered on this pokie. Two of them are random and are triggered during base play. They are called Moonwalk and Stacked Wilds feature and the main symbols in them are the wilds.
The classic bonus feature is triggered by landing 3 bonus symbols on the central reels and the player can win one of the two free spins features, a credit prize or a credit prize with an added multiplier.
The free spins features are called Beat It and Smooth Criminal Free games. The first awards 10 free spins with sticky wilds, while the second awards 5 free spins with wild reels in each spin.
What We love
No matter what your taste in music is, you have to agree that the game theme is great. An artist like Michael Jackson deserves a video pokie game to carry his name.
The visual effects are great and we especially love the many bonus features that can be triggered. This makes the game play intense and interesting.
What we Do not Like
We wouldn’t want to see anything altered in this video pokie game. It is perfect just the way it is, changing some details would only ruin the overall great design.
Beside the interesting and fun game play, Michael Jackson King of Pop can produce some great wins. The pay table is decent and the bonus features have the potential for big wins. We love the free spins features and if the highest paying symbols land in the right position, along with the added wilds, big wins are more than possible.
The Beat It Free games bonus is our personal favorite because of the sticky wilds function. Landing a big number of wilds on the reels with a few free spins left is a sure formula to big wins ranging even 500 x bet or more. We can recommend this game for real play and we are sure it will bring you lots of fun and decent winnings.
