|Online Slot Machine||Michael Jackson King of Pop|
|Slot Provider||SG Interactive Casino Software|
Let me start this review by pointing out that Bally Online (a SG Interactive company) have started porting their more popular land based casino slots into the online slot machine world. Michael Jackson King of Pop was originally (and still is actually) a hugely popular land casino slot machine and an obvious choice to try and port over to online. And since the online version is virtually identical to the land based slot as a change of pace I am going to dig out a video of the land casino slot machine to show you all the features etc:
Michael Jackson King of Pop RTP = 96.01%
A small bug:
Whilst testing this online slot out I actually came across a small bug in the programming. If you set the slot to auto play then usually once the spin starts you can select the square stop button to speed up the spin… however if a Bonus icon is about to appear on reel 2 then the stop button does not appear. This information doesn’t help you and gives no indication of if the bonus wheel is going to land. Actually I just double checked and this happens when spinning normally as well as auto spin.
The bonus games:
This slot is absolutely jam packed with features and mini features. There’s almost too many to mention but I will try and get through them all without missing one:
The Jackpot Scatter: 2 jackpot scatters landing anywhere awards 2 times overall stake value, 3 scatters awards 50 times stake, 4 scatters is 250 times stake and landing all 5 jackpot scatters gives up a massively huge 2,500 times your stake.
The Bonus Wheel: This is won by landing the bonus scatter symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4. There are 4 possible prizes available from the bonus wheel:
Coin Win: It is pretty obvious what this means. You win a number of coins times your LINE bet.
Coin Win with Multiplier Wheel: Here you win a coin value times a multiplier of 2, 3, 5 or 10.
Beat It Free Games: Landing this gives you 10 free games with the possibility of landing sticky wilds. Wilds are only available on reels 2 through 5.
Smooth Criminal Free Games: Here we win 5 free games. During spin 1 the 5th reel is a stacked wild, during spin 2 it is reels 4 and 5 that are stacked wild. During spin 3 it is reels 3 and 4, during spin 4 it is reels 2 and 3 and during the final spin the reels 1 and 2 are stacked wild.
The mini bonus games:
During the base game there are two further mini bonus features:
Stacked Wilds: during any base game spin there is a chance 2 reels will turn into stacked wilds.
Moonwalk Wilds: during any base game spin there is a chance that up to 5 symbols will turn wild on reels 2 to 5. These can either be normal wilds, double multiplier wilds or even jackpot double multiplier wilds.
This can be a very entertaining slot machine if you are a Wacko Jacko fan and if you enjoy lots of features in your slot gaming and is a slot you will find yourself enjoying if you play your slots together with a friend. But I should warn you that it can really eat up your bank balance if you are not careful. Despite the numerous features on offer it is pretty nasty most of the time so you are really going to want to practice or play conservatively until you really get the feel of how this slot plays. Either that or get really lucky really quickly. If you do win a 100+ times stake win early on then walk away for a bit.
