To those that remember the good old rise of metal, when make-up was donned by those who owned the stage and played to the millions, while terrifying quite a fair number in the process, this is just the game for you. Ozzy Osbourne online slot is here for your gaming pleasure, and is handing out the wins for you to feel like a god of rock n roll your bad self. In this title you’ll find all the luxuries you might have come across before, however with a dark and vibrant theme. Is the Oz man the dude to take you to triple platinum financial status? Let’s see what he’s been getting up to on the reels.
The studio behind this slot is NetEnt, which in all honesty doesn’t surprise us in the slightest. These software giants have a knack for seeking out opportunities and adapting them into online slot titles. Whether they be movies, bands, books, you name it. They are the ones to bring it to your favourite online casino. Here, they’ve landed a deal with Ozzy Osbourne to base an online slot on him. Those of us used to seeing the rocker in his reality show The Osbourne’s will see the side of the legend that true fans knew before he had trouble pronouncing the simplest of words. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the Ozzy that captured the imagination of millions through his hard rock ballads. With the great visuals comes a soundtrack with a few popular tunes, while NetEnt is aware that most of us are now playing on mobile devices, and therefore iOS and Android are accommodated.
Most studios limit their titles to a maximum payout of £250,000.00 off a single spin. That is an amount that would get you VVIP access to backstage passes multiple times over, although today a meeting with Ozzy might be a bit of a challenge in trying to decipher the mumbles. The most you’ll be able to wager is £100.00, and this is the hefty amount you’ll need to be dropping per spin to win the full jackpot. The betting starts at a very low £0.20 per wager so, for those that prefer a conservative approach, this could be a good place to start the proceedings.
The symbols do a great job of giving us Ozzy. When playing this game what else would we be expecting? The lower paying symbols are usually paying card numbers and royals, but here you’ll find heavy metal symbols Ozzy would have plastered all around one of his concerts. The crow and the skull are the highest paying of these, while the cross and blue rose are the lower paying. The high value symbols are all Ozzy’s, just in different poses. Ozzy taking a bite out of a bat is the highest paying of all regular symbols.
Look out for the 2 special symbols – the scatter and the wild. The scatter is responsible for opening up some bonus fun, while the wild can substitute all regular icons to create winning lines.
The maestro is bringing some bad ass opportunities to this game, and the bonuses are where you’ll find them. They consist of free spins and respins, and involve the scatter symbol to make it all happen. However, first we must mention the symbol charge-up function. This can happen to symbols randomly in that they are up-graded to wild icons, or that they are simply up-graded to the symbol above it in the list of a higher value. These feature prominently in both the respins and free spins.
To activate respins you’ll need to land 2 scatter symbols on the same spin on 2 of reels 1, 3 and 5. To activate the free spins you’ll need 3 scatters on those same reels, for which you’ll be awarded 4 free spins. You’ll notice that through the charge-up function you’ll be able to increase the amount of spins awarded to you.
This is a really fun game. It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, especially as Ozzy is far from prominent in popular culture these days, and is probably only appreciated by those fans from the good old days. However, the overall package is quite attractive. Obviously, only having an initial 4 free spins is a little disappointing, and a little low, but there is the argument that you can increase the number awarded to you. It’s time to head-bang your way to some life-changing payouts!
