Ozzy Osbourne is an extravaganza of a video slot, brought to us by the wonderful NetEnt. The game has 5 reels and 20 paylines, with bets starting from 20p a spin. It goes without saying that the Ozzy Osbourne slot is based on the Prince of Darkness himself, who we are sure that you are all familiar with in one way or another. Special features in this rock n roll slot include multipliers, free spins and a bonus bet feature among others.
Surely we've all heard of Ozzy Osbourne. He's been causing mayhem and held his legendary status since the 70s, leaving with him a load of fantastic achievements. Some say he once bit the head of a bat. We're not sure what to believe on that front, but what we do know is, that this is one heck of a slot in his honour.
All 20 paylines are fixed in place throughout the game, so they are all active with every spin. You have the choice of how to create your bet around these paylines by adjusting the coin value and the bet level. The coin value is the amount per payline, so a minimum bet line stake of 1p equates to a minimum stake of 20p.
The bet level adds extra coins to each payline, and will be multiplied by the coin bet to create your total bet. The maximum bet is £100 per spin.
You can check on your total bet at the bottom of the game, so check that you are happy with the value before you start spinning with the Prince of Darkness.
Winning with Ozzy
Now, let’s take a look at what the Ozzy Osbourne slot has got to offer in the main.
This slot is all about Ozzy, and so, it makes perfect sense that all of the high-value symbols in this game are Ozzy Osbourne captured in different poses. Match three or more identical Ozzy poses on a payline to be rewarded.
If you manage to land five of a kind all the way along a payline, you could win between 250 and 1000 times your coin bet, depending which Ozzy symbols you land.
Lower-value symbols in the Ozzy Osbourne slot are gothic versions of the card suits; heart, diamond, club and spade. Land five of a kind and you could be awarded between 100 and 150 times your coin bet!
We know that Mr. Osbourne takes charge of the main game, but what about the special features? There is a great selection; we’ll take you through them.
A bat, which we know Ozzy loves, is the wild symbol. It can substitute for any of the standard symbols to help create winning combos if it lands in an opportune place.
An additional feature that you can choose to use on top of your initial bet is the bonus bet feature. If you choose to play with this, it will cost 40 coins per spin, so your bet will be doubled.
The potential benefit of the Ozzy Osbourne slot’s bonus bet is that there is scope to win more free spins. Plus, during free spins, the multiplier values can be increased, such as from 5 to 7 times.
Throughout some of the features such as free spins and re-spins, the symbol charge-up can be activated. If it is, a symbol spinner will decide which symbol is charged up, and it will be applied throughout the feature.
Ozzy: If the symbol depicting Ozzy on a red background is chosen, each of these symbols that appears on the reels will award a coin win equal to matching 3 of a kind
Diamond Skull: All wins including this symbol are multiplied by the multiplier attached to it
Wild: Each of the chosen symbols will turn into a wild symbol and can substitute for others
Upgrade: Each of the chosen symbols transforms into the symbol above it in the paytable and in free spins, the symbol gets all of the features already applied to the symbol it transforms into
Some kind of frightening red object acts as the scatter symbol in the Ozzy Osbourne slot and it is active across reels 1, 3, and 5.
Landing 2 in a single spin awards a re-spin, activating the symbol charge-up. The symbol spinner decides the symbol awarded a feature for the re-spin.
Land three scatters in the main game or find a scatter on the feature spinner in the re-spin, and you can trigger the free spins.
If you are playing with the bonus bet activated, you will be given 5 free spins, otherwise you will get 4.
Just as for the re-spin feature, the symbol spinner chooses the symbol that is awarded a feature for the duration.
Should a scatter be chosen in the symbol spinner, you could be awarded an extra free spin, with the symbol spinner going again. This means that you could get up to 7 free spins in total.
We knew when we heard about the release of the Ozzy Osbourne slot that it was going to be a showstopper, and what a showstopper it is! The graphics, design and general aesthetics of the Ozzy Osbourne slot look fantastic and right on for what we would expect for a game based on this legend.
The features are familiar, but with the symbol spinner, there is an element of having variety in the gameplay, which we welcome. All in all, we reckon this is another stellar video slot release from NetEnt.
