Based on the cult film comedy of the same name, Anchorman The Legend of Ron Burgundy, is the latest movie-themed slot to hit the online casino shelves. Created by Bally, it’s a 5 reel, 25 payline slot that comes with the same anarchic brand of humour that made the 2004 film such a smash hit.
As you’d expect, there’s a real 1970s flavour to the design here. All the main characters from the film are present and correct with Burgundy (Will Ferrell) the most rewarding symbol. You can almost feel the polyester and smell the hairspray!
Bally has packed in a good range of extras in Anchorman, starting with a trio of base game modifiers. Mystery Stack Reels transform into the same matching symbol with a new payout consideration following. The reels feature just 5 rather than the usual 11 symbols if you land the Ron Reels modifier, making it that much easier to create a winning combo. The Baxter Wilds can activate at random following any losing spin. Here you’ll see between 3 and 10 extra wilds added to the reels.
Anchorman also comes with a selection of triggered bonus features. Spin the bonus wheel to win a cash prize, one of 3 potential jackpots or 1 of these bonus rounds:
- Ron’s Giant Free Games feature – 6 free spins are awarded on an expanded 19 row reels set which offers 117 paylines. Whammy! Free Games feature – you’ll get 12 free spins here. Look out for the whammy symbol which moves you up a ladder whenever it hits. The higher up the ladder you go, the bigger the bonus at the end of the round. Brick’s Weather Wheels feature – spin the wheel to win cash prizes. Level ups mean bigger rewards. Make it through to the red wheel and you’ll multiply your payout between 2x and 10x. There’s up to 2,000 times your stake to be won. Sex Panther Pick feature – you’ll be shown 15 bottles. Pick 3 of them to win cash prizes. Then pick from the packets to reveal a multiplier of up to 10x.
Don’t be expecting understated sophistication here. The slot version of Anchorman The Legend of Ron Burgundy is a bold and brassy as the original movie. The design is good and the Bill Withers version of Use Me plays in the background as you spin.
We’ve sometimes been a bit underwhelmed by Bally’s live to online slot conversions. Anchorman The Legend of Ron Burgundy is one of the US developer’s better efforts, combining high spec sound and visuals with some cracking extras. If you enjoyed the original film, you’ll find plenty to enjoy here. If you’re uninitiated in the ways of Ron Burgundy then the Anchorman The Legend of Ron Burgundy slot is a good enough place to start.
