Bally Technologies dives into an old-time classic to bring players this feature-packed slot. Anchorman slot is based on a 2004 comedy film starring the hilarious Will Ferrell. The slot features numerous lead actors who stand as bonus symbols helping you trigger decent payouts.
The game is played on 5 reels and 25 Paylines with a design showcasing the theatrical release poster of the actual movie. The design might seem retro but once you start triggering bonus features, you would easily overlook the general layout.
How to play
Start the game with a stake from 0.75 coins up to 150 coins a spin. On the reels are icons and characters from the movie with the most lucrative being the Ron symbol which pays 2.66x the stake for 5 on the reel.
Anchorman Slot Special Features
The wild symbol will replace all other game symbols except the Whammy and the bonus symbols.
When playing on the base game, the reel can transform into either Ron Reels or Mystery Stack Reels. If the Mystery Stack Reels are triggered, the reels will have several positions randomly replaced with wilds or several regular game symbols. If the Ron Reels are triggered, only wilds, main game characters, cowboy hat symbols, and whiskey tumbler symbols appear on the reels.
Baxter Wilds Feature
The Baxter Wilds Feature is activated randomly but will only become active if 3 bonus symbols do not appear and the reels do not change to Mystery Stack Reels or Ron Reels. This feature awards a spin with 3 to 10 wilds randomly added to the reels.
Big Bonus Feature
Landing bonus symbols on reels 2, 3, and 4 will trigger the Big Bonus Feature and award you a spin on the Big Bonus Reels. Here, you can win a cash prize of up to 13.33x the stake, access 1 of 3 fixed jackpot prizes, and get to play 4 more bonus features.
You will find the Nice Jackpot which pays only 33.33x the stake when you triggered. The Very Nice jackpot is worth 133.33x the stake. Coming on top is the Really Good Jackpot awarding a massive 1,333x the total stake.
