You are holding a monster. You have so much control over this hand, that your goal has gone from trying to win to trying to maximize the amount of money in the pot that you're about to win.

To bet outright might cause some folds, but to check keeps everybody in and forces another player to start the action (hence, you acquire information in the same way as check-raising). You also have no worries about letting players stay in for free because you're certain they won't get the cards they need to beat your hand.

You need only ensure that you are actually getting more money in the pot in the long run. To slowplay to the showdown would mean there's no money in the pot. You will have to make your move in a later round.
