He sang like an angel, danced like a god, and wowed millions of fans worldwide—Michael Jackson was a true musical genius. The so-called King of Pop is no longer with us, but his legacy remains, and you can get a taste of that legacy in the Michael Jackson King of Pop slot game.

Developed by Bally, a subsidiary of Light & Wonder (formerly Scientific Games), this slot is an homage to the man who devoted his life to music.

Michael Jackson Game Features

Michael Jackson King of Pop is set against a brightly lit stage. Rain falls and catches the glint of the stage lights as classic Michael Jackson songs play, including Beat It, Billie Jean, Smooth, Criminal, Bad, and Dirty Diana.

The music is joined by epic soundbites when certain features trigger, and you’ll also see clips from Jackson’s most iconic videos. The game’s features are all based around Wild symbols and include:

Moonwalk Wilds:

Between 2 and 5 Moonwalk Wilds can appear from reels 2 to 5. They substitute for standard game symbols but if a Bonus or Jackpot symbol lands in the same space, it serves its original purpose and also becomes Wild.

Stacked Wilds:

There’s a chance for 2 reels to become Wild during any spin in the base game. A Stacked Wild is one that appears on an entire reel and has the potential to trigger huge wins.

Bonus Wheel:

If the Bonus symbol lands on the center line or within one space on the second, third, and fourth reels, a spin of the bonus Wheel is awarded. It can unlock payouts, Free Games, and additional wheel spins.

Beat It Free Games:

10 spins are awarded and any Wild that lands will remain there until the feature is over. The reels differ from the base game reels and the Wilds can land anywhere from the second to fifth reels. The Bonus and Jackpot symbols are not available during this feature.

Smooth Criminal Free Games:

Unlock 5 spins with varying Wild Reels active on each spin. As with the Beat It Free Games, you won’t see any of the Bonus or Jackpot symbols here.

Away from the main features, you’ll find symbols plucked straight out of Jackson’s music videos, including a Bejeweled Glove, a Hat, Sunglasses, and Shoes. As for the lower-paying symbols, they all represent standard playing card icons from 9 to Ace, each with an additional colorful adornment.
