The Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne, will be appearing at mobile slot sites
near you in the very near future.
The legendary vocalist, who first rose to prominence as the singer of metal music pioneers Black Sabbath, has teamed up with the Swedish software developer NetEnt.
The Ozzy Osbourne slot – quite an unimaginative title you might say – will add to NetEnt’s hugely popular NetEnt Rocks slot series that includes favourites like Guns N’ Roses, Jimi Hendrix and Motorhead.Ozzy Osbourne Slot
The slot will be released sometime in 2019, but at the time of writing, we don’t know a specific date. NetEnt were quite tight-lipped about any further details when they released the news in February at the ICE fair in London.
The game will undoubtedly feature the music of Ozzy Osborne and Black Sabbath, and with NetEnt at the helm, expect there to be engaging gameplay and inventive features.
NetEnt already has a team with experience in this kind of slot, as we alluded to. The NetEnt Rocks slot series is hugely popular and they have all proved to be very successful among players globally.
We can only expect that the Ozzy Osbourne slot will be much the same. With a character as colourful and eccentric as Ozzy Osbourne we can only begin to imagine what treats NetEnt’s talented team have in store for us. Excitement All Around
NetEnt are excited to have Ozzy Osbourne on board and for Ozzy and his brand, the feeling is mutual.
Barry Drinkwater is the chairman of Global Merchandising Services, which is Ozzy’s brand management partner. He helped broker the deal and had this to say about it:
“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.”
“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.”Who Is Ozzy Osbourne?
Rock starts don’t come much bigger than Ozzy Osbourne and even those unfamiliar with the world of rock music will probably recognise his face and name.Ozzy Osbourne’s music career
began over five decades ago back in 1967 with the formation of Black Sabbath.
The band released eight studio albums before Ozzy’s departure in 1978, penning legendary rock anthems such as War Pigs, Paranoid, Iron Man and Into the Void.
The next three decades saw him embark on a successful solo career as well as a number of business ventures alongside his wife, Sharon Osbourne.
In 2013, three of the original Black Sabbath members including Ozzy reformed and released another studio album.
Over the last few years Ozzy has continued to perform in front of sold-out crowds and has embarked on a number of tours around the world.
