Ozzy Osbourne Slot Gameplay

During the game’s introduction we see Ozzy Osbourne  dressed in a feathery cape seated on a large stone throne placed in the ominous setting of an abandoned church. The gloomy theme refers to Ozzy’s nickname Prince of Darkness, which he took on in his early days as frontman of Black Sabbath. The setting of Ozzy Osbourne slot is dark indeed, as the transparent reels of the game are flanked by two enormous horned gargoyles. Imagery on the reels include different icons displaying Ozzy Osbourne himself, including an image in which he eats a bat referring to a famous event that happened in a life show. This image is the highest-paying one awarding you 50 times your stake for five of a kind. Other icons include symbols such as dark roses, crows, crosses and skulls. You can expect to hear several of Osbourne’s tracks including Mr Crowley, Bark at the Moon and Diary of a Madman. Ozzy Osbourne is a medium to high volatility slot with two variance levels.

Special Features

Ozzy Osbourne slot has several features to spice up this Prince of Darkness-themed game.

Bonus Bet Feature

You can increase your win chances with the Bonus Bet feature. For double your bet you increase the hit frequency of winning combination and the bonus frequency. You also get an increase of multiplier values and you are awarded an extra Free Spins in Free Spins mode. You get a higher return in Free Spins mode in comparison to the base game and you are likely to activate Free Spins much more frequently.

Wild Symbol

The sinister image of a horned bat with its mouth wide-open displaying a set of sharp teeth is the Wild symbol.

Scatter Symbols

The red devil represents the Scatter symbol and appears on reels 1,3 and 5 in the base game.

Re- Spins and Charge Up Feature

When you play at least two Scatters in one round you trigger a Re-spin as well as the Charge-Up feature. Once activated two mini reels sized 1×1 appear at the top next to the game title on either side of the reels. These are the Symbols Spinner and the Feature Spinner. The Symbol Spinner displays the chosen symbol and the Feature Spinner shows the feature that is applied to the chosen symbol during the re-spin. Bonuses that the Feature Spinner can award you with are:

  • Coin Win; you are awarded a coin win of the value of three of a kind for every symbol chosen by the Symbol Spinner that appears during the Re-Spin.
  • Wild; the symbol chosen by the Symbol Spinner turns into a Wild symbol during the Re-Spin.
  • Symbol Multiplier; a winning combination containing the chosen symbol will be multiplied by the factor displayed. X2 or x3 or, when the Bet feature is engaged, x5, x7 or x12.
  • Upgrade; the chosen symbol will be upgraded to the next symbol on the paytable for bigger wins.

Free Spins

You can activate Free Spins mode in two ways. The first way is during the Charge Up feature when you play a Scatter symbol in the Symbol Spinner and a Wild Symbol in the Feature Spinner. The second way is the old school way by playing at least three Scatter symbols in one round.

Verdict

Although Ozzy Osbourne is a very decent slot, for a branded slot game from a top game producer such as NetEnt, the game is rather disappointing. The graphics are not as top-notch as other branded slots and the game is considerably less exciting than rock slots Guns N’ Roses and Motörhead, produced by the same game developer. In theory you should be able to make wins of up to 10,000 your stake, however chances of hitting this are 1 in 10 billion. In practice you can hit wins of up to a maximum of 2,500 times your bet. It’s great that NetEnt seemed keen to spice up the game by a significant number of special features, however the way they function and how they can be triggered, can be quite confusing. It might take you a few spins before you get the hang of it. If you are a fan of Ozzy Osbourne or like gloomy and dark slot games, this slot will likely appeal to you. For other types of players, the novelty of Ozzy Osbourne might soon wear off. In addition to that, there are rock and gloom-themed slots out there with a more exciting design and better win potential.
