As a film Anchorman grossed over $264 million, a Blockbuster comedy of epic proportions by anyone’s count. In 2017, Scientific Games and Bally took on the challenge to make the multi-million-dollar first film into a Slot Game, with very impressive results. Hit the reels for the latest news, 3 base game features, 4 different Bonus Rounds, Jackpots, cash prizes, Expanding Reels, Multipliers and much much more, but check out our guide first, so you know how to play!
Anchorman Slot Theme and Graphics
Based on the 2004 film of the same name, Anchorman, follows the exploits of Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) and his failtastic film crew in the mid-70s as they battle for sexual inequality in full comedy fashion when Ron is challenged as San Diego’s #1 anchor by an ambitious and new female counterpart. The Slot brings the favoured film characters back to life on 5x3, 25 payline reels with film footage and symbols that will have you laughing in your seat as you spin on any device and waiting for the latest breaking news.
How to Play Anchorman Slot
● Sign in to or register for your 32Red Casino account. ● Make a deposit and load up Anchorman Slot. ● Check the paytable and game rules under the ‘?’ icon. ● Set your bet between 75p and £150. ● Click spin and start playing. This Slot has both auto and mute functions.
How to Win Anchorman Slot
Anchorman Slot is feature-ladened with the possibility of Mystery Stacked Reels, Ron Reels and Baxter Wilds randomly triggered at any time during the base game, all of which goes a long way to make up for the relatively weak paytable.
● Mystery Stack Reels: If active, they allow a random number of reel positions to become different symbols and potentially trigger wins.
● Rons Reels: When Ron Reels are active, only 4 of the base game symbols and Wilds can appear on the reels increasing the value and hit rate of the reels. ● Baxter Wilds: If during the base game you do not get either the Mystery or Ron’s Reels feature and no bonuses are won, then Baxter Wilds will activate giving 3-10 Wilds. This fail-safe feature is a beautiful add on and makes it impossible to have a bad spin on Anchorman Slot.
Big Bonus Ribbon Stop Wheel
Collect 3+ Scatter symbols on the reels to get a single spin of the Big Bonus Ribbon Stop Wheel, which guarantees 1 of the 4 bonus rounds underneath, a jackpot (£5,000, £20,000 or £200,000) or cash win (£1,000, £1,500 or £2,000).
Champ Kind’s Whammy Free Games: Get 12 spins and climb a rung on the ladder every time you score a Whammy symbol. The higher you climb the bigger your reward, which is instantly awarded, ascending from £50-2,000 over 12 rungs.
Ron’s Giant Free Games: Get 6 spins the reels expanding up to 19 symbols high and 117 paylines. Only 3 Ron symbols and an extended full Ron Burgundy are on the reels.
Brian Fontana’s Sex Panther Picks: Click and pick 5 from 15 of Brain’s colognes for guaranteed action (prizes) and then 1 of 5 packs of condoms to decide the multiplier applied to the total prize pot (2-10x)- bringing a new meaning to getting lucky.
Brick Tamland’s Weather Wheel: Play Brick’s Weather Wheel and see if you can level up from your first single spin to win more. The blue wheel is capped at 75-1000x your total stake, Green 2,000x and the last- red- gives you the chance to earn 2-10x Multipliers to be added to your prize from the previous wheels.
The news never stops in San Diego and neither do your chances of winning with Anchorman Slot. Keep in mind the likely hit rate, design a good betting strategy and be careful with your bankroll in this bonus-filled Slot. Whilst this is a game that goes all out in terms of bonus action, you’re likely to pay for it in striking the right balance between the main game paytable, which is not rewarding enough, and having a big enough bet level to enjoy the plentiful and generous bonuses, bear in mind it has an RTP of 96.3%. Thankfully, Baxter Wilds guarantee something is always added to a spin. This is slot is best designed for those who favour big risks.
