Ozzy Osbourne slot review (Netent)

All Aboard! Ha, Ha, Ha! Nobody out there must have drunk so much alcohol, did so many drugs and destroyed so many hotel rooms like the one and only  “Prince of Darkness.” What’s more, during one of his infamous concerts on stage, he bit off the head of a real bat without knowing whether it was a fake specimen or not.

Ozzy Osbourne is one of the most recognizable figures in heavy metal, with an unmatched reputation of being a party animal

Now, Ozzy Osbourne, who became famous as a Black Sabbath singer and later even more famous as a solo artist, finally got his well deserved own slot, courtesy of Netent.

We love a bit of heavy metal ourselves, and Ozzy’s music plays a big part in our enjoyment of the genre: Crazy Train, Mr. Crowley, No More Tears, you name it.

We had high expectations when we heard about Netent’s Ozzy Osbourne slot. If you remember, Netent’s Guns N’ Roses slot is one of the best online slots ever made.

ozzy-osbourne-slot-review-netent-big-win

The Ozzy Osbourne slot is good, but not great.

Did Netent meet those high expectations? Not quite.

Ozzy Osbourne has some nice finds and exciting features, but it lacks the X-factor (sorry Sharon!).

And why don’t you hear that superb, mother-of-all-riffs intro to Crazy Train as soon as you open the game? That would have set the tone right away.

Fortunately, we get to listen to this classic rock song later in the game.

 What are the theoretical RTP, the variance and the maximum win of the Ozzy Osbourne Slot?

As just mentioned, the RTP of this Netent slot is an excellent 96.67%, as long as you have activated the Bonus Bet. Otherwise, the RTP is 96.30%.

The maximum win is 10,000 x the total bet on this slot, but that seems more of a decoy than a real chance.

We see it more and more often with online slots: slot providers promote the slot with enormous prizes, but in practice, this is only the case in, say, one every billion spins.

Nevertheless, we expect that wins of say 1,000x the bet or more are possible. The Ozzy Osbourne slot is, according to Netent, a high variance slot. We must say that Netent has been pretty accurate and open about their slot variance qualifications (unlike some others such as Play ‘n GO, who state that almost all their slots have a “very high” volatility).

Compare the Ozzy Osbourne slot to Netent slots as The Wishmaster or Jungle Spirit, in terms of variance. High variance slots, but not extremely high like Dead or Alive or Dead or Alive 2.

Gameplay and features of the Ozzy Osbourne slot

Ozzy Osbourne is played on five reels with three rows of symbols and has 20 fixed paylines.

Play with or without the Bonus Bet

There are two game variants where you can choose from:

  • Without the Bonus Bet (the regular version)
  • With the Bonus Bet

If you wish to activate the Bonus Bet, you pay twice as much bet per spin, as you will play 40 coins per spin rather than 20 coins per spin. The advantage, though, is that the RTP is better (96.67%). And the free spins are activated more often (on average once every 140 spins), whereas, in the Regular game, it is once every 259 spins on average.

In summary:

  • The minimum bet is $€0.20 per spin in the Regular version, and the maximum bet is $€50 per spin.
  • The minimum bet is $€0.40 per spin with the Bonus bet activated, and the maximum bet is $€100 per spin.

Symbols and payouts

If you hadn’t noticed that this slot is about Ozzy Osbourne, you will, once you see the symbols.

There are no less than four different Ozzy symbols, which payout between 250 and 1,000 coins when a 5-of-a-kind is on an active payline.

This boils down to wins of 12,5x to 50x the bet in the Regular game  (coin value is 20). When the Bonus bet is activated, these wins are equal to 6,25x to 25x the bet (with a coin value of 40).

The low symbols consist of a crow, a skull, a cross and a rose. Spin five of the same, and you win between 100 and 150 coins.

The bat with the devil’s horns is wild and replaces all symbols except the scatters.

Mini Features

If two scatters appear on the reels, you get a consolation free re-spin where a symbol gets an extra booster. These boosters can consist of:

  • Extra wilds
  • Additional multipliers up to x 7
  • Mystery cash prizes
  • Symbol upgrades

The corresponding symbols and boosters are shown in the Feature Spinner at the top of the game. It all looks very slick, although we can imagine that at some point, it becomes all a bit too repetitive (and time-consuming).

Free spins bonus

The free spins bonus is activated once you spin three scatters on the reels (or in the feature spinner).

We will now receive 4 free spins in the regular game and 5 free spins if you have activated Bonus Bet.

Every free spider gets a booster through the Feature Spinner, and it will remain active for the remaining free spins.

It is possible to retrigger free spins, and if you have the Bonus Bet active, you can also earn higher multipliers.

Needless to say, that the slot has more than sufficient potential for some massive wins.

Our verdict of the Ozzy Osbourne slot

Ozzy Osbourne will definitely appeal to Ozzy’s many fans, but it hasn’t blown our minds away.

Somehow, despite all the Ozzy symbols in the game and the soundtrack of the self-proclaimed “Prince of Darkness” himself, we find ourselves missing a little too much of Ozzy Osbourne himself. A bit more fun, a little more real clips and a wild intro would have helped.

It is a bit unfortunate that the minimum bet is $€0.40 (rather than $€0.20) if you want to activate the Bonus Bet (which has more free spins and a better RTP).

The variance is high. That is excellent news for the real thrill-seekers. If you don’t get that massive win, the downside is that your balance will evaporate quickly.
