Michael Jackson, the King of Pop's legend lives on at online casinos. Having been immortalised across the reels of slot machines in almost every casino in Las Vegas thanks to Bally Interactive, the Michael Jackson King of Pop slot is now also available at online and mobile casinos like Betsafe Casino.
The 5 reel, 25 payline slot is a visual masterpiece that combines images of the iconic Michael Jackson with symbols like his famous glove, hat and black shoes with white socks and the animated bonus features.
The slot also features 5 of the King of Pop's major hits including Dirty Diana, Smooth Criminal, Beat It, Bad and Billie Jean - tracks that should make it a musical masterpiece, but disappointingly Dirty Diana is the only track available during normal play, whilst the others are played in the bonus features only, so you only hear short snippets of them and end up getting quite sick of Dirty Diana even though it's an epic song.
We've been fortunate enough to play the slot in both Las Vegas casinos like the Aria and Mandalay Bay as well as online and while it is the same game in principle the online version does differ quite significantly in that online its betting range starts at a mere 40p whereas in Vegas a minimum spin cost is $3.50.
The Vegas version of the slot although it looks great, is rather boring to play due to its low variance nature. While it is connected to a Million Dollar jackpot network which means a big win can change your life, this affects the volatility of the game and payouts of the other in-game features, making them quite poor.
The online version of this game, in true Bally Technologies style is also a low variance slot, but due to the fact that it's not connected to a massive million dollar jackpot like it is in Las Vegas casinos but rather a smaller 2,500 coin jackpot, the game features offers great payouts which adds to the excitement and really make the game.
