NetEnt has joined forces with the Prince of Darkness, and it’s safe to say that we’re excited.
You don’t need to be over the age of forty to know who Ozzy Osbourne is. You might know him as the man who bit off a bat’s head, who consistently claims confusion, or simply as the rock icon he is. As the lead vocalist of the highly renowned band, Black Sabbath, Ozzy quickly shot to stardom.
If you observe NetEnt’s current rock slot series, you’ll find that the Osbourne addition comes as no surprise. Ozzy will be joining the likes of Guns N Roses, Motörhead, and Jimi Hendrix – quite a list! The entire series has been far from disappointing, with cutting edge graphics and individual uniqueness. Players have clearly picked up on this since the games have all been extremely popular among both new and seasoned gamblers. It’s no wonder that they keep making more!
What the slot will entail?
This latest NetEnt slot is framed by the entrance of a temple, with Ozzy and two demonic beings decorating the top. The reels are covered with various symbols, including crucifixes, roses, skulls and ravens. There are numerous premiums, all represented by Osbourne. NetEnt takes a particularly memorable moment in Osbourne’s career and immortalises it in the highest-ranking premium of a bat-eating Ozzy. This unusual premium gives you 50x your stake for a combination of 5 on a full pay-line. Also, players should look out for the devil bat wild!
NetEnt’s Ozzy Osbourne game was designed with a 1980s comic theme, giving its players a sense of childhood nostalgia. An eerie vibe is purposely set to enhance the theme of metal music, with background sound of some of Ozzy’s classics, including Bark at the Moon and Diary of a Madman.
This video slot will be a 5 reel, 20 fixed pay-line game. You can play 20p to £100 per spin on all devices. Additionally, the Symbol Spinner and the Feature Spinner can apply to each free spin, using the Free Spin feature. For additional bonus spins and higher multipliers (of up to 12x), players can also activate the Bonus Feature.
The Godfather of Heavy Metal
Informally known as The Godfather of Heavy Metal, Ozzy has had an incredible career. From the music industry to reality TV, he has truly seen it all. In both spheres, he has successfully made significant waves, to say the least. Aside from his obvious musical achievements, The Osbournes, which featured his wife, Sharon, and his two children, Kelly and Jack, was a hit. His famous Brummy accent calling out to his wife, repeatedly (“SHARON”), might ring a bell. The show ultimately came to a close in 2005, although, his reality TV career didn’t end there. Currently, Osbourne is co-starring with Kelly and Jack in the recently debuted TV show Ozzy & Jack’s World Detour (2018).
Despite parting from Black Sabbath during the 1970s, Osbourne joined his bandmates in performing numerous times, afterwards. As a member of Black Sabbath, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as well as the UK Music Hall of Fame.
Fast-forward a few decades, and it isn’t Ozzy’s first rodeo in the gaming industry. Not long ago, he became the face of Metal Casino, a fact that most dedicated punters would know. As the name suggests, Metal casino is a heavy-metal themed gambling platform. Osbourne is the ambassador and partner of Metal Casino and helped spearhead a unique campaign for it. As part of this campaign, he took part in a filmed interview. In the extended version, Ozzy is seen playing the rock games Motörhead, Guns & Roses and Jimi Hendrix, all the while reminiscing about his friends Lemmy, Slash, and Jimi. Ozzy delves into detail as he recalls some casino trips he had taken with his fellow rockstars.
