Anchorman Slot

Sharing is caring!

Anchorman Slot

  • Based on the hit movie from 2004 starring Will Ferrell
  • A great range of features focused mostly around free spins
  • Design could be improved but overall an excellent slot with a lot to offer

Anchorman slot comes to you from SG Gaming, bringing with it all of your favourite characters and jokes from the movie. For those of you who haven’t seen the movie, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundystars Will Ferrell as a big shot newsman with his crews of idiot co-workers and friends when suddenly an ambitious, career-driven woman joins him as a new anchor. It’s fair to say no-one really knows what to do and the result is hilarious. It’s no surprise SG Gaming have decided to release a slot based around the hit movie so they can bring a bit of humour to what can be a rather repetitive and monotonous game.

Starting with how Anchorman slot looks, I have to say there’s nothing especially fancy about the game. There’s plenty of colours and everything’s certainly clear enough, but the background is just a bit plain and there are no animations going on like we’ve seen in some recent slots such as Wild Swarm slot. I appreciate that it’s often harder to design a slot when it’s based on a real movie and uses actual images, but I’m sure more could have been done here. Moving on to the gameplay then, this is where things start to heat up. On the face of it, there’s a standard 5×3 layout with up to 117 pay lines during Ron’s Giant Free Games and an RTP of 96.03%. You play by spinning the reels and hoping to get a winning combination or a bonus using the base symbols from left to right. These base symbols are listed as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:

  • Van, Sunglasses or Hat (lowest value)
  • Drink or Dog
  • Brian Fantanta, Brick Tamland or Champ Kind
  • Ron Burgundy (highest value)

There is of course also a Wild symbol which substitutes for all other symbols apart from the Bonus symbol when part of a winning combination.

Anchorman Slot Bonuses and Features

Mystery Stack Reels. This is a base game feature where the reels may randomly change to the Mystery Stack Reels. When in play, each reel has a number of positions that can be replaced with any of the aforementioned symbols giving you a chance to win some extra rewards.

Ron Reels. This is another base game feature but this time the reels can change to Ron Reels randomly. When in use, only Wild, Ron, Dog, Drink or Hat symbols will appear on the reels.

Baxter Wilds Feature. Another base game feature, whereby during the base game, if the reels don’t change to Ron Reels or Mystery Stack Reels and 3 Bonus symbols don’t appear on the screen, this feature can be awarded and between 3 and 10 Wild symbols will be placed anywhere on reels 2-5.

Big Bonus Reel. This is triggered by 3 scattered Bonus symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 and will give you a spin on the Big Bonus Reel where you can win one of the following:

  • Ron’s Giant Free Games. Different symbols are in play here and you will be given 6 free games. The screen expands up to 19 rows and up to 117 pay lines are available.
  • Whammy! Free Games. Yet another set of reels are used here with different symbols and you will be given 12 free games. A ladder with 12 steps will appear on the screen, and for every Whammy! symbol that appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 you will be given the current step award and move up to the next step with greater rewards.
  • Brick’s Weather Wheels. Here you will be given a spin of the Blue wheel with the multipliers on the wedge being applied to the running total. If the wedge contains Level-Up then you will get a spin of the Green wheel, and if not your total reward is collected and the bonus is over. The Green wheel works in a similar way and can progress you to the Red wheel which will apply a multiplier to your total and give you your final prize before ending the feature.
  • Sex Panther Pick Feature. Here you will be offered 15 bottles and given a chance to pick 3 of them. You can either choose a prize or a +1 pick to get another pick of the bottles. After all picks have been used, choose a packet from the 5 pick fields to get a multiplier of 2x-10x.


Anchorman slot is a pretty feature rich game based on the hit movie of the same name by SG Gaming. There’s a lot to like here; the base game has several features to keep things going and the main bonus has a lot of variation in it while also being pretty rewarding. You can tell they put a lot of time into this slot, but I still think they can have made it look more appealing. At the end of the day though, gameplay is the most important aspect and it does a great job there.
