For a while now excitement has been growing about Bally Technologies’ Michael Jackson: King of Pop slot machine. The game is now ready for distribution and will be debuting at Mohegan Sun.
Mohegan Sun is owned by the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority and is one of the most impressive gambling and entertainment destinations in the United States. The complex is built along 185 acres of the Thames River bank and includes two casinos. In total twelve of the machines will be launched with six in the Casino of the Earth and six in the Casino of the Sky.
This 5 reel, 25 line video slot game is obviously built around a Michael Jackson theme and will feature much of his music such as “Bad”, “Beat It” and “Smooth Criminal” all enjoyable through the Pro surround-sound chair. There is also a range of mystery wilds bonuses and free games bonus events. The game also features a U-Spin Platinum Record Bonus and video clips showing Jackson.
The game will accept 16 credit denominations ranging from 1 cent to $500. The jackpot is 1 million credits and can be won when five Top Award symbols appear either on or within one position above or below the centre payline.
The game is built into a Bally’s V22/32 cabinet with a 32-inch vertical top box. The game is packed with pictures of Jackson as well as film clips, music videos and music (all enjoyable through the 5.1 Dolby surround sound).
The highlight of the entertainment has got to be the end of bonus rounds when a golden statue of a bandolier-clad Jackson rises in the top box; it really gives the feel of an entertainment extravaganza. This is definitely a spectacular slots experience and any fans of Michael Jackson are sure to love it.
