Ozzy Osbourne Slot Review
After the huge success of the NetEnt Rocks trilogy, it was time to add another rock legend to the equation. The “Prince of Darkness” decided to come back to the stage, eating bat heads once more, to help spinners land wins up to 2,500 times the bet. Ozzy Osbourne is NetEnt’s latest five-reel, 20-payline video slot packed with features, including Free Spins, Re-Spins, Symbol Change Up, and Bonus Bet. Playable from £0.20 per spin, the 2019 release boasts exceptional graphics, while the soundtrack consists of Osbourne’s greatest hits, like Crazy Train, Mr Crowley and Diary of a Madman.
Once you start playing the NetEnt title, the “Prince of Darkness” will welcome you sitting on a throne. The reels are set in a scary tomb, with two devils guarding the entrance. Even the soundtrack in the very beginning is a bit freaky. Just hit the Spin button to start playing Ozzy Osbourne’s greatest hits. High-value symbols will present Ozzy in four different situations, while the highest-paying icon is Ozzy eating the head of a Bat. A Raven, a Skull with a Crown, Cross, and a Black Rose will also appear on the reels. The Devil is the Wild that substitutes for all regular icons, while the Scatter triggers Re-Spins and Free Spins.
The least scary part of the story is the rules of the game, which can seem a bit confusing in the beginning but are quite simple. The 2019 release features five reels, three rows and benefits from 20 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel, with three of a kind being the minimum for landing payouts. Betting is fixed at 20 coins per spin in normal mode and at 40 coins if you activate the Bonus Bet, which gives you more free spins and bigger win multipliers in the Free Spins feature. Bet as low as £0.20 and as high as £50 per spin in normal mode, or up to £100 per spin if you activate the Bonus Bet.
Scatters can appear only on reels 1, 3, and 5. Land two Scatters on the reels and you will activate the Re-Spins feature. Thanks to the Symbol Change Up feature, before the re-spin ends, the Symbol Spinner on the left side of the screen will determine which symbol will get one of the change up features, while the Feature Spinner decides which of the features will be applied on that particular icon. There is the Coin Win feature, where the selected symbol offers a win equal to the three-of-a-kind win. The Wild feature will turn all instances of the chosen symbol into a Wild. In Symbol Multiplier feature, the chosen icon will get 2x or 3x multipliers in normal game, and 5x or 7x multipliers if Bonus Bet is activated. Also, the Scatter can appear on the Symbol Spinner, which will get you additional re-spins or free spins during the Free Spins feature.
If you trigger the Free Spins feature, you will be given 4 freebies in normal mode or 5 freebies in Bonus Bet mode. Before every free spin, the Symbol Change Up feature is activated, and all symbols that are chosen to keep their special features until freebies are over.
If our sources are correct, the biggest possible payout gamers can expect in the 2019 release is set at 2,500 times the bet per spin. The Re-Spins feature and the Free Spins feature is where you can expect mouthwatering wins, due to the fact that there can be big multipliers added to certain symbols. Activate the Bonus Bet to boost your wins. Ozzy Osbourne’s RTP is 96.3%.

Even though the NetEnt product is packed with details, the quality of the game is simply excellent and it allows players to enjoy the 2019 release across all devices, without losing any of the game’s quality.

+ Excellent visuals and soundtrack
+ Exciting and rewarding features
+ Popular theme
– Not intended for scaredy-cats
– May seem a bit complicated in the beginning
– Bonus Bet does not offer much more free spins than normal mode
We are big fans of the NetEnt Rocks trilogy, and we did not think that there will be better rock video slots than those three, but boy were we wrong! Ozzy Osbourne is simply amazing, starting from the visuals, the fantastic soundtrack and innovative additional features incorporated. Our biggest favourite is the Symbol Change Up, where you can get instant wins, additional Wilds and symbol multipliers up to 12x. More than enough reasons for all rock fans to join the “Prince of Darkness” in his latest adventure.
