If you have been a fan of Black Sabbath, metal music or the reality TV-show "The Osbournes" in general, then you won't easily feel disappointed when trying out the online slot with the same name from Microgaming. I'm guessing this slot has been released some time ago, but nevertheless it's still one of the better slots around in my opinion.
The Osbournes slot offers players several ways to accumulate a nice win. Whether it's the Free Spins bonus, random Grab a Gift bonus or the Knock Knock bonus feature, they all have one thing in common - all have the ability to increase your bankroll. The symbols which are used for this slot resemble all characters from the reality TV-show, including Ozzie Osbourne, Sharon, Kelly, Jack and Maggie the dog which is the scatter in this game.
Other symbols are made up from microphones, guitars, awards, door knockers (bonus symbol) and The Osbournes Badge among others. The badge functions as a wild in this game. On the background you can be entertained with a metal melody while playing The Osbournes.
The Osbournes has 20 paylines and 5 reels. The minimum bet on this game is €0.20, but I like to play a bit higher by betting €1 per spin on this game. My experiences have been excellent so far. I like how different the Free Spins feature is. When you collect 3 or more scatters (Maggie), then you trigger 10 free spins.
During the free spins if a scatter falls, then Maggie takes a few steps on the pavement to collect some other prizes for you. These can take up to 4 additional prizes, each time she reaches one of the characters (Ozzie, Sharon, Kelly or Jack). Once she reaches one of them you get awarded a prize on top of the results of your free spins.
The 10 free spins then start all over again, while the remaining free spins give you a consolation prize. The ultimate goal is to make Maggie reach all characters and re-trigger the free spins 3 times. I've managed to do this twice and both ended up in me winning more than 100x bet size.
The other bonus round is called the "Grab a Gift" bonus. This one is completely random and offers some nice value, since it awards like 15x bet size as minimum, while the max is 30x bet size. Lastly there is the "Knock Knock" bonus which gets triggered if you get 3 or more door knocker symbols.
This one has been the most disappointing to me, since I only won 3x my bet size a couple of times. Overall still one of the nicer games around.
My final rating for The Osbournes is 8/10.
