NetEnt has officially released the eagerly awaited Ozzy Osbourne video slot.
The leading game provider, which is known for games such as Starburst and Gonzo’s Quest, announced the rock-themed slot back in February this year, revealing that it had struck an agreement with the Prince of Darkness to develop and release a slot based on the musician.
Now, almost nine months later, NetEnt has officially released the slot. The new game is packed with symbols themed after the former Black Sabbath lead singer and includes licensed music from the singer’s solo discography.
What’s more, the Ozzy Osbourne video slot includes numerous special features including Re-Spins and Free Spins, as well as a Symbol Charge-Up which is activated before Re-Spins and Free Spins and awards players additional features such as Wild symbols, multipliers, symbol upgrades, or coin wins.
The game also benefits from a Bonus Bet mechanic which boosts the chances of triggering the game’s special features while adding one extra Free Spins and increasing the game’s multipliers for bigger wins.
Bryan Upton, NetEnt’s Director of Games, said in a statement: “Ozzy is the archetypal rock star, whose name transcends the music industry. He might be the Prince of Darkness, but he’s had an incredibly colourful career and we are ecstatic to have worked with him for his latest gig.
“With its great gameplay and exciting theme, Ozzy Osbourne Video Slots will appeal to his fans as well as a wide cross-section of slots players.”
Barry Drinkwater, Osbourne’s merchandising and brand management partner and the Chairman of Global Merchandising Services, added: “We’ve been looking forward to Ozzy Osbourne Video Slots going live ever since we signed the partnership with NetEnt and we’re delighted with the result.”
The launch comes as NetEnt continues to expand its already-varied game catalogue with brand new slots. Earlier this month, NetEnt launched slots Who’s The Bride, an Asian and wedding-themed slot packed with jaw-dropping visuals, as well as Reel Rush 2, a colourful online slot packed with fun features.
Last month, the slot developer made headlines for launching its The Wolf’s Bane, Sweety Honey Fruity, and Victorious MAX slots. It also launched its own NetWork Branded Casino (NBC) to provide operators with more flexibility and choice in their live casino games.
Before October, NetEnt continued to grow its brand by opening a new office in the UK and acquiring popular game provider Red Tiger Gaming, known for its daily and hour jackpot slots and Pirates’ Plenty game series.
Ozzy Osbourne Video Slot is available now and can be found at most NetEnt casino operators.
