Fans of comedy, Will Ferrell, campy 70s humor, television news themes, and winning big on the slot machines will thrill at this latest addition to industry game leader, Bally Technology’s, repertoire of great slot machines.
This particular title, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burberry is a shout out to the 2004 block buster movie staring Will Ferrell, Steve Carrell, Paul Rudd, and Christina Applegate in this slapstick classic about the cut throat world of 1970 broadcast news.
You certainly do not need to be a fan of the movie, although it helps, to enjoy playing this five reel and four row slot machine that offers exciting wins and exhilarating play time.
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burberry—Basic Play
The play area fairly drips nostalgia with the movie’s main cast perched above the screen with an array of 70s touchstones that closely resembles a 1970s sound stage with a myriad of shag carpet, garish colors, and plastic furniture. Bally offers this game in both an online powered format as well as a mobile casino option that allows you to play on the go. Having played both versions for this review, I found that the game transferred well to the smaller platform.
Game symbols are based on people or objects from the film such as lower-value icons like the cowboy hat, sunglasses and TV news van. By contrast, the higher valued icons include pictures of Brian, Brick, Champ and Ron.
Simply said, you win by landing any three or more of the same symbol in an unbroken line across any of the 25 pay lines reading from left to right. That said however, the game is replete with an array of bonus symbols designed to deliver wins in any number of creative ways.
Time to Score in the Bonus Round
Look for the wild card, displayed with the words, “This is a Wild” to deflect any confusion amongst the player. These wilds serve as any of the above symbols if the move will complete continuous runs of matching symbols.
Additionally, another ten extra wilds can be garnered in the game in the randomly-awarded Baxter Wilds feature. More bonuses include Mystery Stack reels that can be triggered at any time, with symbols randomly replaced by others if it then helps to complete combinations.
Reels can also appear at any time and only the higher-paying symbols will be seen, making it easier to assess their value when lined up.
Colorful graphics, favorite actors, and a high Return to Player makes this game an inviting diversion for the player whether they are seasoned players, or newbies who just stepped off the bus to try their first hand at playing a slot machine in their life.
Finding this game in the US
Outside of the online gambling sites, you can find Anchorman in Las Vegas, Atlantic City and even in Michigan.
The biggest advantage to playing online is that you can play for free. Some of the casinos will give you free cash in the form of a no deposit bonus to test the game out for real money, OR, you can opt for the demo version above.
Bring it All Together: A Final Analyses
I enjoyed playing Bally’s Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burberry for both its thematic homage to a great movie, but I also lo0ved the fast paced action of the game itself. With an RTP above 96%, the game has an impressive payout that allows for long term play without breaking the bank.
Indeed, while you probably won’t make as much as the cinematic release of the movie, you will find yourself winning often enough to make the game enjoyable for a long playing session. As such, tune into your favorite anchorman for a taste of hilarity, and a chance to win big on your favorite movie themed slot machine by Bally.
