Scientific Games announced this week a new slot title for land based gaming venues themed after the popular Anchorman movie starring Will Ferrell, Steve Carell and Paul Rudd. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy, was designed for the new TwinStar V24/43 cabinet and offers players a unique gaming experience. Based on the hilarious comedy franchise by Paramount Pictures, Anchorman is sure to be a hit, offering players a quality five-reel, 25 payline video slot option.
The top feature of Anchorman is the Big Bonus Filmstrip Stop. Here players will get to see Ron Burgundy and the crew of Channel 4 News team in action. When the filmstrip stops on a particular character, players get to enjoy a bonus game based on that character. Such bonus games on offer include Ron’s Giant Free Games. During this round, the reels will expand to 20 lines during game play. Another example is Brick’s Weather Wheels, where players can earn credits and have the opportunity to advance to another round to play for even higher amounts in credits or a multiplier.
In a press release announcing the new slot title, Scientific Games Executive Vice President and Group Chief Executive of Gaming, Derik Mooberry, stated that Anchorman is often referred to and quoted, having woven its way into our culture, proving to be an excellent story to create a slot game on. The development team worked hard to stay true to the films and include favorite scenes and comical nuances of the movie within the game.
Anchorman will be played via the TwinStar V24/43 cabinet which includes such features as a 24 inch and 43-inch HD displays. Touch controls are interactive and a sound system that is truly immersive will further enhance the guest experience. The new game is expected to available soon throughout North America.
