A game based on the legend that is Ron Burgundy? Can pokies games actually get better than this? Developed by Bally and available to enjoy for free and on mobile devices, this excellent 25 payline game boasts seven bonus features and three generous jackpots. Read our full review below.
This hugely enjoyable game is based on the laugh-out-loud 2004 movie of the same name - Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Played by Will Ferrell, Ron Burgundy is your typical 1970s dim-witted, sexist news anchorman. However, the strangely lovable character manages to bag the lady AND become a hero when he saves a panda at San Diego zoo. Using this cult movie to base a pokie on was an inspired decision by Bally, as the film was, and still is, incredibly popular. The film also features Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd and Steve Carell.
Anchorman sound & graphics
As the game loads, the first thing you notice is the funky 70s soundtrack. You will see Ron Burgundy’s face at the top, and you can’t miss it, in fact. The background to the reels is based on the back screen of a newsdesk, whilst joining Ron along the top of the reels are the characters, Brick Tamland, Brian Fantana and Ron’s beloved pet dog. The colour themes are a striking 1970s orange, as well as royal blue, yellow and red.
One could argue that the graphics are fairly basic, but to miss the 70s inspired clunkiness of some of the graphics would be to miss the point.
How to play Anchorman pokies
This game is so easy to play, even Ron Burgundy could manage it. Bets are made across all 25 paylines, so all you need to do is choose your total wager of between £0.75 and £150 and hit the spin button.
What is the RTP of Anchorman?
This game has a generous RTP of 96.3%. With most pokies sitting a bit below this, this game is an excellent choice for those who want to win back, on average, almost as much as they put in.
How to win at Anchorman pokies
Look out for three or more symbols in a row. The highest is Ron himself who pays out 400x your line bet when he appears five times in a line. The Wild symbol can mean more winnings, as it substitutes for all other symbols (apart from the Bonus Scatter and the Whammy symbol).
Anchorman bonus features
This game is teeming with bonus features. Even in the base game, a number of random bonus features can occur at any time. This includes Ron Reels, which can occur on any spin in the base game. During Ron Reels, only the Wild, Ron, the dog, a glass of whiskey and the stetson are in play. Also in the base game, the reels may change to Mystery Stack Reels, where positions on the reels are randomly replaced by other symbols to become stacked.
Anchorman pokies top win
The biggest wins come when you reach the Big Bonus Spin, which may result in either the Nice Jackpot, the Very Nice Jackpot or the Really Good Jackpot, paying out 5,000, 20,000 and 200,000 coins respectively.
Free spins on Anchorman pokies
Three or more Bonus Scatter symbols mean players are awarded 1 free spin on the Big Bonus Reel. It may not sound a lot, but this bonus reel features three jackpots and three further, huge cash prizes. This one free spin may also result in one of four additional feature rounds - Ron’s Giant Free Games, Whammy’s Free Games, Bricks Weather Reels or the Sex Panther Pick Feature. In Ron’s Giant Free Games, 6 free spins are awarded and 19 rows are added, making for a different set of paylines than in the base game. In Whammy’s Free Games, the symbols change to all things Whammy and players get 12 free spins. Brick’s Weather Wheel is a wheel of fortune type game that awards multipliers and level-ups to better wheels. The final bonus feature, the Sex Panther Pick Feature, is hosted, of course, by the character Brian Fantana. In this game, players pick three of 15 bottles, which reveal prizes. They then pick a packet to reveal a multiplier.
