NetEnt and rock ‘n’ roll themes seem to go hand-in-hand, so it comes as no surprise that the developer has created a game based around the antics of one of heavy metalâ€™s most engaging performers of all time.
Ozzy Osbourne is a five-reel video slot which features the Prince of Darkness himself in a game which boasts exceptional graphics. Predictably, the soundtrack features some of Ozzyâ€™s greatest hits, including Crazy Train, Diary of a Madman and Mr Crowley.
Upon entering the game, Black Sabbath frontman and wild man of rock Ozzy Osbourne welcomes you from atop a throne. The reels are set amongst a rather scary tomb, with a pair of devils charged with guarding the entrance. The symbols feature plenty of references to Ozzy’s life and times, with the highest paying icon depicting the rocker eating the head of a bat (in more intoxicated times, Ozzy once bit the head from a bat which had inadvertently landed on stage at the Memorial Auditorium in Des Moines).
The game features 20 fixed paylines which payout from left-to-right. Minimum payouts occur when the player lands three symbols of a kind. Spins can be activated from just 20p, and the maximum spin amount is $/€/£100, making this game ideal for casual casino fans and high rollers alike.
Scatter symbols can appear on the first, third and fifth reels. If you land two scatters on any of these reels, you’ll automatically activate a re-spins feature which is useful for increasing any potential wins. Elsewhere in the game, there are multipliers and a coin-win feature which allows players to bag winnings equivalent to a three-of-a-kind match. There’s also a free spins feature which gives you the opportunity to gain up to five free spins. While none of these may seem like particularly innovative special features, they’re all familiar and help to keep the gameplay as straightforward as possible while also ensuring players are kept entertained.
The largest possible payout Ozzy Osbourne players can expect to land is capped at an impressive 2,500 times the original stake amount. The jackpot amounts are accessed during the free spins feature, as there are plenty of multipliers to be added. The RTP percentage of Ozzy Osbourne sits at 96.3%, which is above average for a five-reel video slot. This ensures players get more for their money.
NetEnt understands that casino gamers want to access their favourite titles on the move, which is why it is dedicated to taking a cross-platform approach with all its new titles. This means you can enjoy Ozzy Osbourne on a mobile device, regardless of whether you’re an iOS or Android user.
Fans of heavy metal/the legacy of Ozzy Osbourne, in general, will go crazy for this unique video slot. It’s got great graphics, a rocking soundtrack and enough features to keep players interested. At its core, Ozzy Osbourne is a relatively straightforward title that doesn’t make things too complicated. It comes highly recommended for those who want to immerse themselves in Ozzy’s greatest hits while spinning the reels in the hopes of bagging huge jackpots.
