Big names in the music industry are used in the making of many slots, so NetEnt has provided us with the Ozzy Osbourne slot game. It’s a 5 reel slot with 3 rows and 20 ways for the player to score a winning combination. Aside from iconic looks that represent the star, the game is a lot of fun to play. If you’re a fan off the “Godfather of Heavy Metal” there is no doubt that you will enjoy this game.
If you aren’t a fan then you have for sure at least heard of Ozzy Osbourne and his work. He rose to fame back in the 1970s and since then became worldwide recognized. Ozzy Osbourne today is the first thing one thinks of when heavy metal comes to mind. Using that to their advantage, NetEnt has provided an amazing slot game with some great features that contribute to the already exciting theme.
The setting is very dark and sinister with the main scene of events being a temple with two demons at the entrance. There is nothing better to represent the heavy metal legend. Everything has a cartoon-like feel to it but still looks quite scary. The game also has amazing graphics as expected from the provider and a branded slot.
The soundtrack is fitted for the time since it features Ozzys' voice and music. The designers have put a lot of thought into the characters. Even the low paying card symbols are designed to look unique. Some of them are cross clubs, skull diamonds, rose spades, and crow hearts. The high paying symbols are all represented by Ozzy Osbourne himself.
Aside from a great design that represents the artist, the game has good gameplay as well. The player can bet a minimum of 0,20 and a maximum of a 100 coins per spin. With the features there to help, the player can win up to 2,500x the stake, which is quite tempting. It’s a medium volatility slot which is a good combination with the 96,3% RTP that the game offers.
This slot game has a variety of features that keep it interesting to play. The first is the Bonus Bet feature which is for one of the players who don’t mind spending a bit more than the usual. This feature costs the player 40 coins per spin but it increases the chances for free spins and other features to be activated.
Next is the Re-spin feature that is activated when the player lands 2 scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 or 5. Before the feature plays out a Symbol Charge Up feature that consists of 2 spinners takes place. On the right side to the grid is the Feature Spinner that determines the feature that is going to be active during the re-spin. On the left side is the Symbol Spinner that determines the symbol on which the feature is applied. In case a scatter is chosen, the player gets 4 free spins that play out after the re-spin.
The Free Spins feature can be activated during the base game as well, by landing 3 scatter symbols on reels 1, 3, or 5. The Symbol Charge Up feature is activated before every spin and works the same way except for when the scatter is chosen. The player gets 1 additional free spin and a new symbol is chosen.
What is most interesting about this game is the Symbol Charge Up feature since it’s unpredictable and can be very beneficial for the player. The Feature Spinner has 4 different features that can be applied. The Coin Win feature that awards instead of the regular, 3 times the payout for the chosen symbol appearing on the reels. The Wild feature transforms each chosen symbol into a wild. The Symbol Multiplier feature multiplies the wins of a winning combination with the chosen symbol by x2 or x3. Lastly comes the Upgrade feature that transforms each chosen symbol into the next high value one.
