Throughout 2016, NetEnt launched the NetEnt Rocks Trilogy after it signed three amazing artists/bands leading to Guns N’ Roses™, Jimi Hendrix™, and Motörhead™. Now again, NetEnt managed to sign up one of the biggest artists of all time, bringing the Prince of Darkness to the reels in the Ozzy Osbourne™ slot.
Ozzy Osbourne™ slot announcement
At the moment, the entire iGaming industry is gathering together at ICE and LAC 2019, all taking place over the course of five consecutive days at the ExCeL venue. During one of the most important shows for the industry, visitors will be surrounded by close to 600 exhibitors from more than 60 nations.
Of course, NetEnt can’t be missed on the exhibition floor and like this has been the case in the past years, it was also this year that the company announced another big branded slot game.
I know Ozzy Osbourne is a living legend and, of course, I’ve heard about him and his family, but I have to admit that I’m not so much into heavy metal and I don’t really like reality shows. However, we’re talking about one of the greatest performers of all times, and he deserves a great intro!
The majority might know John Michael “Ozzy” Osbourne (born 3 December 1948) of the reality show The Osbournes, featuring the domestic life of Ozzy Osbourne and his family. However, he deserves to be praised for his attribution to the metal scene during his first 10-year tour of duty with Black Sabbath as well. After all, his fame started when joining the English rock band as the in 1968.
He rose to prominence in the early 1970s as the lead vocalist of Black Sabbath, but was fired from the heavy metal band in 1979. He went on to have a successful solo career during which he released 11 studio albums. The first seven of his albums were all awarded multi-platinum certifications in the US. During his solo career, the man has sold over 100 million albums. No wonder he’s also known as the Godfather of Heavy Metal!
In the early 2000s, Ozzy Osbourne became a reality television star, appearing as himself in the MTV reality show The Osbournes, alongside wife and manager Sharon, and two of their three children, Kelly and Jack.
“Rock stars don’t come much bigger, better known, or charismatic than Ozzy Osbourne,” says Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Game Products.
When will Ozzy steel the show in his own video slot?
Now again, Ozzy is set to be a star performer, but this time in his own video slot designed and developed by NetEnt’s own talented team!
While no date is known yet, we can at least be sure that this upcoming star video slot will feature imagery and vocals from the instantly-recognisable Osbourne.
“Thanks to his larger-than-life personality and outstanding contribution to music, Ozzy has developed a loyal and passionate following over the past 50 years – we can’t wait to bring this to the reels for players to enjoy.”
It’s time to rock again when the Ozzy Osbourne™ slot is ready to make its appearance at the NetEnt Casinos. The game will be a great addition to the NetEnt Rocks family of games which also includes the Guns n’ Roses™ online slot, the Jimi Hendrix™ online slot and the Motörhead™ online slot.
What was meant as the NetEnt Rocks Trilogy, seems to become more than that, although I have no clue yet if the Ozzy Osbourne™ slot will officially become past of the NetEnt Rocks series.
The deal was brokered by Ozzy Osbourne’s merchandising and brand management partner, Global Merchandising Services.
“NetEnt are the market leaders in their field and we’re incredibly excited to add another of our artists to the exciting NetEnt Rocks family of games,” said Barry Drinkwater, Chairman of Global Merchandising Services.
