The Osbournes Video Slot review
The Osbournes is a 5 reel 20 payline video slot created by Microgaming. It’s based on ‘The Osbournes’ TV series which stars rocker Ozzy Osbourne and his family. The reality series became a worldwide hit. All the members of the Osbourne family are present (Ozzy, Sharon, Jack and Kelly) in a game which has heavy metal music playing in the background. You can play from 20p to £100 a spin (all 20 paylines) as you can bet from 1p a payline to £5 a payline.
The game comes with a 15,000 coin jackpot which can be triggered by getting 5 The Osbournes symbols – the maximum that can be won in the base game is 750 times your stake. The Osbournes has 3 bonus features with superb prizes on offer.
If you’ve watched the television series you will know that they love their dog, Mini. If you get 3 or more Mini symbols across the reels you will trigger the Mini’s Free Spin Trail Bonus feature. You will then be awarded with 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier and a trail feature above the reels.
There are 4 levels (Ozzy, Sharon, Jack and Kelly) and you will see Mini trot across the screen if she appears on the 3 middle reels. If Mini moves 5 places along the trail, you will be awarded a bonus prize and reset the free spins to 10. In total, you can get up to 40 free spins with a top cash prize of 1,500 times your stake.
Then there is the Knock Knock Bonus feature which is triggered by getting 3 or more Door Knocker scattered symbols from left to right. This is a ‘pick me’ style bonus feature where you can win up to 100 times your stake. Finally there is the Grab A Gift Bonus feature which is randomly triggered. This is a skill-based feature as you try to stop on the gift you want. You can win up to 30 times your stake as you land on the different character gifts.
It’s an old Microgaming slot which looks a little dated but the bigger wins will come from the Free Spins feature really – if you prefer something a little more modern and based on a television series, you should try Game of Thrones (also by Microgaming). I would also recommend Jurassic Park which is Microgaming’s best slot in my opinion.
