While Ozzy’s trademark shouting of his wife’s name might not be included in this game, it does provide a fairly regular layout of five reels and three rows. Upon these reels, you’ll find various different symbols, all of which relate to the theme of the game very well. So, there’s each of the characters involved in their own way, and these four symbols are accompanied by one of the family pet, Mini, as well as an ornate door knocker, a plush looking, red chair, a golden trophy award, and a microphone. Further icons exist in the form of a framed family photo, a signed, black guitar, and the game’s own logo.
Microgaming have also included a total of 20 separate pay lines to accompany the reels, rows and symbols, but you do have the chance to customise this particular feature, if you so choose. This is done simply by using the ‘Lines’ button or by clicking on one of the numbers shown down either side of the reels. Players can also adjust the amount of the bet they place per round as well, and this is done by first of all choosing a specific value of a single coin. You’re able to choose between a minimum of $0.01 and a maximum level of $0.50, while the amount of these coins played per active line can be switched between one and 10. This allows a maximum overall wager of $200 to be played per spin.
The Osbourne Family Specials
We already know that this celebrity family lives a high profile life filled with specialities, but how about the game? What’s included in it to make it more entertaining? Well, first of all, there’s the wild symbol, and this is represented by the aforementioned game logo. As a wild, this stands in for any other icon on the reels in order to form a winning combination. The only exceptions to this rule are the scatter and bonus symbols.
The door knocker acts as a scatter icon, so this will pay out wherever it shows up on the reels. It will also trigger the game’s ‘Knock Knock’ bonus round. You’ll need to spin three or more door knockers into view in order to activate it, but once you do, you’ll need to pick one of them to reveal a random multiplier of your stake placed, up to a maximum of times five.
Mini the dog is another special icon as she is another scatter symbol. So, again, if this appears anywhere on the reels, you’ll receive a pay out. However, if three or more of them show up in view, you’ll also trigger the ‘Free Spin Trail’ bonus round, providing you with 10 freespins and a double multiplier.
Finally, there’s also the inclusion of the randomly awarded, ‘Grab a Gift’ bonus round, and this requires you to stop the flashing light on a gift box that takes your fancy. There are four of these in total, and each one provides a different multiplier amount, with up to 30 times your wager placed able to be revealed.
Reality on the Reels
Regardless of whether or not you were a fan of the television show, The Osbournes will certainly provide a huge amount of entertainment to any kind of player, especially with its intriguing and compelling special features.
