Video slot released by Bally Technologies in 2011/2012
Seriously, this new Michael Jackson game is Incredible. Even just a few days after release, it was obvious that the game was going to be one of the biggest hits ever. It's great to see Bally producing a game like this, that is truly breath-taking and more than that, just so much FUN to play!
I'd go so far as to say that the Michael Jackson slot is set to be more popular than any of the recent games form IGT or WMS blockbusters, including sex and the city, wizard of oz, lord of the rings and the price is right slot featuring drew Carey
In fact, I would even suggest that the Michael Jackson slot is going to dominate the casino floor for the coming few years, it is that good.
Its impressive to see that every aspect has bee subject to real attention to detail - the game play, the 3D surround sound, the bonus games, the way that movie clips and animations are worked seamlessly into the action
So what makes the Michael Jackson slot machine so amazing?
First and foremost is the atmosphere it provides. As you would expect, Bally have gone to town with the music and the sheer quality of the 3D surround sound speakers embedded in the gaming chair has to be heard to be believed.
The there is the game itself, which will not only appeal to fans of the king of pop himself, but just as much to all fans of slot machines. Bonus features are many and varied, each with it's own Michael Jackson sound track.
The 'Beat It' bonus sees you with free spins, but this is not a regular free spin game, it is supercharged. Every couple of spins, Michael makes and appearance, moon walking across the screen, spinning and dancing in the way only he can.
As he moves across the screen, he kicks out symbols and transforms them into random wilds. The great thing here, is that each wild becomes sticky and remains through the entire free spin bonus round. Should Michael appear 4 or 5 times, you will see huge numbers of wilds, making a major win a certainty.
With 4 other bonus games, a big spinning wheel (think wheel of fortune here), there is plenty to get excited about and plenty to keep any serious slot player entertained for a long time.
This is one amazing new slot machine and could be a game changer in the slot world, taking it to a completely new level with respect to sound and graphics and total immersion in game play.
