On our mission to review slots that people would enjoy playing, we sometimes have to go back a couple of months and cover games that we think should have gotten more attention when they were released. One such game is Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.
Based on a movie following an eccentric news reporter, this slot by Bally is definitely worth checking out, especially if you consider yourself a fan of Will Ferrell and his work. The slot features all of the legendary characters from the movie as well as some of the props that made all the difference in Anchorman.
The low-paying symbols in the game are a news van, sunglasses, a hat, a glass of whiskey, and a dog—all of which appeared in the movie. The high-paying symbols are the four main characters from the movie. There are also three additional symbols — the Wild, the Bonus, and the Whammy. The wild will substitute all other symbols on the reels except for the bonus and the whammy symbols.
The game is packed with unique and interesting bonus features that people who like playing online slot machines will really enjoy.
The first bonus feature is called Mystery Stack Reels, and it appears randomly during the base game. During this bonus game, each reel has a couple of positions that are replaced with one symbol, increasing your chances to win huge prizes.
Furthermore, you can also activate Ron Reels, where only the Wild, a dog, Ron, a glass of whiskey, and a hat are available on the reels. This feature is also triggered randomly during the base game.
If you land three Scattered bonus symbols on reels 2, 3 or 4, you will get to spin the Big Bonus Wheel and get one of the free spin games: Ron’s Giant Free Games, Whammy! Free Games, Brick’s Weather Wheels, or Sex Panther Pick Feature. Each of these will have certain additional bonuses and features that you can use to improve your chances of winning hefty rewards by spinning this slot.
The slot has RTP of 96.03% and a total of 117 paylines. Furthermore, you can set your bet amount anywhere from 0.75 to 150.00. In other words, this game is suitable for everyone — from casual players to high-rollers!
Backed by smooth funky music and occasional one-liners from the movie, this slot is bound to keep you entertained for hours as you hang out with Ron Burgundy and his colleagues.
