“KING OF POP” DEBUTS AT MGM GRAND DETROIT
MGM Grand Detroit announced today the completed installation of the much anticipated “Michael Jackson: King of Pop” penny slot by Bally Technologies. The entertainment destination was the first metro Detroit casino to unveil the new digital reel machine.
“Michael Jackson: King of Pop” pipes six original songs and videos by the music legend through its built-in 5.1 surround sound system to entertain players. Featured hits include “Billie Jean,”
“Dirty Diana,” “Don’t Stop ’Til You Get Enough,” “Smooth Criminal,” “Beat It” and “Bad.”
The 10-foot machine also showcases eye-catching images of Michael Jackson on the cabinet and at the top on 18-inch monitors. His likeness is also displayed on a 22-inch high-definition touch screen and 32-inch vertical tower monitor.
A dynamic sensory experience is created at each of four stations for four players.
“This is probably the most anticipated new game launch in the industry for 2012. It totally immerses players,” said Troy Hammie, vice president of slot operations at MGM Grand Detroit. “We are thrilled to be the first casino in Detroit to have ‘Michael Jackson: King of Pop’ on our gaming floor, and are always looking for the most innovative ways to keep our property the hottest in the market. Whether it’s our spa, celebrity restaurants, slots or table games, our guests get Vegas in the Midwest.”
When players hit specific reel combinations, Michael Jackson’s image moonwalks across the screen to “Bad.” The singer’s iconic white sequin glove, sunglasses, hat and dancing kicks also float across screens during play to the delight of players.
Other bonuses include Smooth Criminal Free Games, Beat It Free Games, Moonwalk Wilds, USpin ™ Platinum Bonus Spin and Stacked Wilds.
